Notes: The third generation Durango is plagued by a defective TIPM, particularily in the 2011 and 2012 model years.

TIPM, which stands for Totally Integrated Power Modules, is responsible for controlling and distributing power to all the vehicle’s electrical functions. So when your TIPM goes haywire, bad things start happening. Things like your water pump can stop working, your engine can stall out and your airbags can randomly deploy.

2011 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #4

Jun 132015


  • 45,000 miles


While driving on the highway when I come across a rough spot that is unavoidable (with all the construction on the roads) my steering wheel starts rocking and it becomes very difficult to maintain control of the car. It resembles a flat tire. I have to really pay attention and keep the car in my lane. There is also a very noticeable rattle/noise/vibration under the car. I have had the alignment done and even purchased new tires, but so far nothing has helped.
