Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 022006

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Dodge Durango just stops running at random times. This occurs at speeds of 10-60 mph or even when the car is being started. The odometer blinks and reads no bus. There are numerous reports of this on Dodge internet forums. The powertrain control module and/or crankshaft sensors end up being replaced, but the problem is hard to diagnose and dangerous because it occurs without warning and while driving. With so many reports on 1999-2002 Dodge Durangos having this problem (search Durango PCM "no bus") something must be defective. My Durango began doing this about a month ago and the dealer doesn't see anything wrong. I was mildly injured during one of the failures, when my Durango 'shut off' while I was coming down a highway ramp and I bumped my head against the driver side window while trying to stabilize the car, which suddenly and without warning had no powertrain control.
