Customer Question

We have a 2005 Durango that has been having some issues. It will run fine and the. All of a sudden not start. We have taken it to our mechanic who had replace the front control mod with success getting it going, but it wasn't a smooth process. He has been getting used modules but the issues has happened twice now, and wondering if a new mod is needed or if the issue lies somewhere deeper being the same thing keep happening even after changing out the module.

Hey how are you
These modules are common issue ,so him getting a used one from junk yard could be bad or goes bad afterwards, but how long is it lasting
Did he check pins on connnector engine harness side , tell him to check with a flash light for any bent pins ,loose ,corroded that is making poor connection
And to answer your question most like;y the module needs to a new one , the new ones are upstaged modules that handles heat better.
Do you know if he has a Chrysler scaner specific or using basic code readerPlease let me know

I'm assuming it's a basic code scanner, it's a small shop.This last time it made it about a month or so and then out of no where it just wouldn't start. I had just drove about 60 miles with no issue and tried starting it about an hour after, and nothing.When he towed it back he messed around and just unplugged and plugged it back in, and it started. We picked it up a few days later and started right up, and my brother in law (engineer gear) started it up and drive it around the block and went through the wiring and all looked good.....then went to start it, and wouldn't start again.

I would get a new module, but if you can have it scaned with chrysler scaner, pay the $100 at dealer and get these fault to be sure and you can post them back here for me and i can be more accurate for you

Please let me know

Thank You
