I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 dodge durango. Turn it over and it just cranks. I let go of key and key comes back like it should but cranking continues until I turn off the key. Doesn't sound like starter is engaging flywheel to me. Changed starter, relay, and ignition switch. This happened 1 time every 200-250 turns. Each time turned off, restarted and it went off without a hitch. Went into the desert for the day. Very slowly in deep holes. It was after that however that it would not work. I'm thinking now wiring? Could it be crankshaft sensor.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?

It is in Park. I'm not certain about wheel lock. I don't believe I have tried in neutral for sure.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Durango yourself? What have you tried so far?

Starter, relay, and ignition switch. Yes I have been working on it so far.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

How to fix:)

Hey how are you ,I will Try to Help you with This Issue

the crankshaft will not stop it from turning over ,it will tun over but want start ( we loose spark when ckp sensor is malfunctioning ) , you are saying when this happens , we have no starter engagement correct ?

click on link to view the starting system in it , notice how the starter has , PCM connection on pin #86 ,it grounds the circuit to activate starter , you have replaced pretty much all expect the pcm and TRS switch , my experience with them is the pcm or the wiring to it ,

in some cases , the Neutral safety switch on transmission , these will be the 2 areas i suspect ?

unplug the pcm connector check the pins ,get some crc electrical contact cleaner and spray connection, look inside the pcm connector any backed out pins ,burned pins ?

CLICK ON LINK TO VIEW PCM ,LOCATION AND RR , NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH AND WIRING CIRCUIT
