Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer. Which engine do you have in your Durango? is it the 4.7 V8?
Ok, thanks. So no codes huh?
If that is the case, then what is happening is the PCM may be shutting down when the underhood temperatures get hot. The other thing it may be is a shorted cam or crank sensor. I have seen them short out and take the 5 volt sensor voltage down which makes the PCM look dead.
9 times out of 10 it is the PCM (engine computer) that fails though and I recommend replacing the PCM. However if you want to try a sensor, go with the cam sensor first, then the crank sensor. Finally the PCM.. PLEASE use only OEM Mopar cam and crank sensors.
By te way, when the PCM shuts down, the gauges do not work because the instrument cluster can not see the gauge information from the PCM
Oh the PCM (Powertrain Cointrol Module) runs around $300.00 for a quality remanufactured one. You can find them a little cheaper on line I think.
Yes on a Durango it is not too hard to replace. I can send you the procedure if you wish.
Do you want the PCM replacement procedure?
