problem #2

Dec 282004

Durango 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


Not sure exactly when the last failure was because I don't travel "all" the time... but when I do... sometimes the emergency flashers come on by themselves and cannot be turned off. This is not good while traveling down the interstate highways. The flasher switch does not work any longer and the flashers cannot be turned off. I hear clicking noises under the dash and have even tried pullling fuses... you cannot turn the emergency flashers off. My destination is about 250 miles away and when this does happens, they may continue to flash all night long resulting in the battery being dead the next day. I have a feeling this happens even when I don't travel because sometimes when I want to go somewhere the battery is dead and the truck has been sitting in my garage all night.this is obviously an electrical problem that could eventually result in a fire or death... the dealer "maxwell Dodge" in austin Texas is "special" and does not have to adhere to any "laws". they do not want to fix the upper ball joints on my 2001 Durango either unless I can leave it there "until they get around to it". they won't make an "appointment" for the 2 hour repair needed and insist that I bring it there and leave it until they ready to give it back. What a scam! I hope that you will review this matter and correct these issues with the unethical dealers that manufacturers continue to allow distribution and support of thier products.. thanks, [xxx] 2001 Dodge Durango R/T 4X4 5.9 liter VIN: [xxx]. updated 07/24/2012 information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)

problem #1

Durango orginal started stalling and then check engine light came on and stayed on steady. Went to dealer an was suggested PCM was bad no parts available (power control module). Parts ordered. New parts installed same problem when leaving dealership. On closer inspection technican found rear heat inline pump had failed internally and had pumped antifreeze through wiring harness which inturn wrecked cruise control, PCM, heating and cooling controls. Antifreeze is corrsive to copper wiring and we do not know how far the antifreeze traveled in the different wiring harness modules. Dodge has offered to replace original failed inline rear heat pump but will not pay labor $216 district manager has offered to give 12 month or 12,000 mile warranty but will not give a longer warranty on electricall harness even though he has determined this will fix problem. But not removed the corrosive from the electrical harness. Tech working problem has see the same problem before at same dealership on Durango's
