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.

problem #2

Durango Sport/SXT 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 159,341 miles


Again, after changing all the sensors that the diagnostic report suggested, I again had this vehicle stall during 5:00 rush hour traffic. Lost power then died. Tried to start turned over but wouldn't start. After 3 hour I said to hell with it and pushed it to safe place and got a ride home. This problem occurs randomly without any warning. Not safe at all.

Durango 4WD 4.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 149,000 miles

Went out to get in vehicle and hit the unlock button on wireless key entry, doors would not unlock, had to manually unlock door. Tried to unlock passenger doors with button on drivers door, but that wouldn't work either. Windows would not roll down from any door except drivers door control. Started vehicle and the engine light, service 4wd light and door ajar lights came on. (all doors where checked and closed completely). Drove vehicle on to town and door ajar light went off on its own, engine light stayed on and the service 4wd light eventually went off on its own, but when I startedback home and started the vehicle only the engine light was on. While driving home, hit a bump in the road and the service 4wd light came on.

Took to repair shop, they checked the entire electrical system but couldn't find anything. Mechanic told me that they had two other durangos i for similiar problems and that if the battery was ever replaced it could cause these problems along with even having problems with the vehicle not wanting to start or not idling and would go dead. (lord and behold, very next morning went out to start vehicle and it would start and then good dead, wouldnt idle.) gave up and drove other vehicle. Next day or so, no problems at all. everything worked great. next day same on sh*t agian.
