Customer Question
i have 08 durango that...
i have 08 durango that i purchased a few weeks ago. door locks have not worked since i bought the truck. switch does nothing, lock or unlock. The remote wont lock or unlock, but it will set the alarm when i hit the lock on it. Lights and horn beeps like its locked, lights flash when i hit unlock, but doors never lock or unlock. Thought maybe it was lock actuator, so i got 1 from auto zone, installed it on driver door. Didnt change locking or unlocking, but interior lights stayed on, light on dash said door was open. Put the orginal back on, lights went back out. i have the door panel off again today while im off work, testing power to lock actuator, not showing that im getting power. also, dont know much about the truck since we just bought it, but last couple times it has rained, noticed the driver and passenger seat belt is wet when you pull them out.

Hi, does your Durango have a sunroof? If so, I'd start by removing the driver side kick panel and looking for water in the junction block. You may have to remove several of the connectors going to it and check for water in the connectors.

doesnt have a sunroof. I actually already have the kick pannel off, and have unpluged the connectors and everything. was googling, same somebody said to unplug the ctm for a few mins to see if the locks would start working again. they didnt

also checked the wires inside the door jam, didnt find any broke or anything
Dodge Mechanic: Jon, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, do you have a test light?

Dodge Mechanic: Jon, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, just to verify, check for power at the pink/yellow wire at both front door lock switches.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Dodge Mechanic: Jon, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

With the key in run, check those 2 wires I meant.

Ok, has power on both sides
Dodge Mechanic: Jon, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, the powers and grounds to the latches comes from the instrument cluster. I'm going to give you a few fuses that feed the cluster to check. Give me a minute or so while I look those up.

In the junction block in the kick panel, check fuse 9 (20A) , fuse 10 (15A) and 27 (30A) for power. They're all battery feeds to the cluster and should be hot at all times.

Dodge Mechanic: Jon, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Fuse 19 (10A) should be hot with the key in run.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
All fuses are good have power 19 with key on. My kick panel isn't showing fuse 27 and doesn't list any higher than 25 amp
Dodge Mechanic: Jon, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I just zoomed on my diagram and I'm definitely showing a fuse 27 (30A) going to the cluster. I'll see if I can find where 27 is...

Dodge Mechanic: Jon, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I see what you mean, I see a 26 and 29 but no 27, I'll keep looking.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Actually, most have been testing 3 for 9. Had 25 instead of 20, it was blown. Replaced it, they are working now
Dodge Mechanic: Jon, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, the diagram I had was showing fuse 27 in the junction block which is obviously wrong. you have a PDC and an IPM under the hood fuse 27 30A should be....Oh, ok, so you're fixed now?

Seems to be working fine now. Thanks for assistance. As far as the leak, I've read probably roof rack. What's the best way of solving this issue?
Dodge Mechanic: Jon, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, no problem, glad I could help. I haven't seen the roof racks leak, it's usually the sunroof equipped ones. Best Thing is to run a hose on the roof and try to locate where the water is coming in.
