MY 2011 DURANGO DOES NOT START. IT PRESENTS SIMILAR TO HOW A CAR WOULD IN THE PAST WHEN THE FUEL PUMP WOULD FAIL. THE DEALER DID A "DIAGNOSTIC" AND INITIALLY SAID IT WAS OK AND IT STARTED RIGHT AWAY. FIRST STOP ON THE WAY HOME AT THE STORE, IT WOULDN'T START AGAIN. WHEN WE DID GET IT STARTED, IT HAS NOW BEEN SITTING IN OUR DRIVE FOR A MONTH WAITING FOR A PART THE DEALER IDENTIFIED AS THE TIPM, TOTAL INTEGRATED POWER MODULE. THEY SAID IT WAS 1100 PARTS BACKORDERED, AND GAVE A STORY ABOUT HOW THE PART IS SPECIFIC FOR THE VEHICLE AND HOW THE PART PRODUCTION WERE AFFECTED BY THE RECESSION ETC. THE VEHICLE IS ALMOST DONE WITH IT'S THIRD YEAR PRODUCTION, MOVING TO 4TH YEAR NOW, AND THEY CLAIM THEY HAVE NO PART. WE HAVE NOW BEEN TOLD OCTOBER 22 THEY MAY HAVE THE PART, AFTER BEING TOLD IT WOULD BE "NO LATER THAT 9/23/13". THE DEALERSHIP (AND ANOTHER LOCAL ONE) HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR RESOLUTION, AND DESPITE HAVING A CASE MANAGER AT DODGE, STILL GETTING RUN AROUND. WE HAVE HEARD THIS IS FAIRLY COMMON FOR THIS TO OCCUR BETWEEN 35000 AND 75000 MILES ON THIS VEHICLE, AND IT MANIFEST AS VARIOUS ELECTRONIC ISSUES FROM STARTING, TO VARIOUS SIGNAL AND WIPER MALFUNCTIONS ETC, ANYTHING ELECTRICAL.

While driving lights on dash all flash, windshield wipers come on, horn won’t work, windows won’t work, headlights will turn off, speedometer drops to zero. Problem started a year ago. Took it to dodge and 2 independent auto repair places, with no fix. We were without the car for 4 months while waiting to see if anyone could find a fix-as far as we were told there was none. Car drove fine for a couple of months with some “minor” issues-lights flash speedometer drops- pull over turn car off- everything ok. Today full electric failure! EVERYTHING stated above happened at once, in addition to feeling like I could not accelerate.

While at speed, the FCW light goes off and the vehicle looses the ability to accelerate. I usually have to pull over, shut down the vehicle, and restart it to continue. I have had all of the recalls completed as soon as possible, and the last one was completed several years ago. Similar things happened previously with this car but seemed to be fixed by recalls. This has only started happening again recently, say within the last month or two, and is happening with greater frequency.

We received notice, by mail, of a safety recall (19V-813) on our Dodge Durango in Jan 2021. We made an appt for 1/13 at Bob Baker Dodge in Carlsbad, CA. Upon arrival, we were told the part was backordered and they would call us when it arrived. Juan Gonzalez was the service advisor we spoke with. In May, after no call, our vehicle began showing signs of the problem. Hesitating, failing to start. We called Juan who stated there were still no parts and he wasn't allowed to keep a list of customers waiting for parts since it would be too extensive. We called Dodge (maybe Mopar) corporate (800-853-1403) on 6/1. Aby gave us a few other dealers to try. After no luck with them, we called back. Tim claimed he would escalate our case and promised someone would call us within 24 hours. After receiving no call, we called again on 6/3. Pam said that our case was never escalated. And had no solution for us. Given the safety recall states "A vehicle stall while driving can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning" we've now rented a car since we're not comfortable driving our Durango. I feel both Dodge/Mopar and our local dealer are simply dragging their feet on this safety recall.

I HAD A FUEL PUMP RELAY REPLACED IN 2015, AND HAVE HAD A LOT OF SMALL PROBLEMS WITH THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM OVER THE YEARS. ONCE THE VEHICLE PASSED 80,000 MILES THIS YEAR ALL KINDS OF THINGS STARTED HAPPENING. THE COOLING SYSTEM WENT HAYWIRE AND MY AUTO REPAIR SHOP HAD TO REPLACE THE RADIATOR. I'VE BEEN EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS WITH MY VEHICLE HESITATING TO START LIKE IT IS NOT GETTING FUEL, AND HAVE TROUBLE ACCELERATING SO I CANNOT PULL OUT IN HEAVY TRAFFIC UNLESS THERE IS A GOOD BREAK WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS HAVING A HEMI V8 ENGINE! I'VE BEEN TOWED TWICE THIS YEAR WHEN THE VEHICLE WOULD NOT START AT ALL BUT THEN IT ENDED UP STARTING WHEN IT GOT TO MY AUTO REPAIR SHOP OR THE DEALER. I WAS NOT ONLY EMBARRASSED BUT WASTED TIME AND MONEY. MY MECHANIC DID A LOT OF DIAGNOSTICS AND RULED OUT EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE FUEL PUMP RELAY. I DID SOME RESEARCH AND LEARNED ABOUT THE RECALL SO I WENT TO THE DEALER AND ASKED THEM TO APPLY THE FIX. THEY HASSLED ME AND SAID THEY 'CAN NOT TRUST YOUR MECHANICS' AND MADE ME PAY FOR DIAGNOSTICS AND SAID THERE WAS NO FIX FOR THE RECALL. THEY ENDED UP FINDING ANOTHER PROBLEM BASICALLY TELLING ME MY MECHANICS WERE WRONG AND CHARGED ME OVER $800 FOR A NEW PCM. THEY DID INSTALL A NEW FUEL PUMP RELAY AT MY INSISTENCE EVEN THOUGH IT WAS THE ORIGINAL PART AND NOT A FIXED PART. IT RESOLVED THE STARTING ISSUE AND I STOPPED GETTING ANY WARNING LIGHTS. THE VEHICLE STILL DIDN'T ACCELERATE OR HANDLE PROPERLY AND NOT EVEN FOUR MONTHS LATER AND THE SAME PROBLEM IS HAPPENING AGAIN! THE FUEL PUMP RELAY IS OBVIOUSLY FAILING AGAIN AND I AM NOT CONFIDENT THE PCM HAD A PROBLEM IF I'M STILL GETTING THE SAME ISSUES. COULD IT BE THE TIPM I KEEP READING ABOUT? THE DEALER DIDN'T MENTION THAT. I'M AFRAID I AM GOING TO BE STRANDED WITH CHILDREN OR WORSE THAT THE VEHICLE IS GOING TO CUT OUT WHILE MOVING IN TRAFFIC!! THIS IS AN EXTREMELY UNREASONABLE SAFETY RISK!

WHILE DRIVING MY DODGE DURANGO ON CITY STREETS AS WELL AS MULTI LANE HIGHWAY THE VEHICLE WILL UNEXPECTEDLY EXPERIENCE A STALL CONDITION. I HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS FAILURE APPROXIMATELY SIX TIMES. PLACING THE VEHICLE IN NEUTRAL WHILE IN MOTION TO ATTEMPT A RESTART WAS UNSUCCESSFUL AS I FOUND THAT THE VEHICLE MUST BE IN PARK FOR A RESTART. THIS IS ESPECIALLY CONCERNING ON THE MULTILANE HIGHWAY AT 50 MPH SPEEDS, AS THE POTENTIAL FOR COLLISION WITHOUT POWER IS OF GREAT RISK TO ME. HAVING TO PLACE A VEHICLE IN PARK IF UNABLE TO COAST TO SHOULDER OR CURB LANE PUTS EVERYONE IN THE AREA AT RISK OF COLLISION AND EXPOSING MYSELF AND FAMILY TO A REAR END COLLISION AT INCREASED HIGHWAY SPEEDS. ON CITY STREETS I HAVE EXPERIENCED A LOSS OF POWER AT APPROXIMATELY 20 MPH WHILE MID TURN THROUGH AN INTERSECTION RESULTING IN ME BLOCKING THE INTERSECTION WHILE ATTEMPTING A RESTART. THIS HAS OCCURRED IN BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT HAND TURNS. OF NOTE MY FAMILY MEMBERS WITH LESS DRIVING EXPERIENCE COULD BE AT RISK OF COLLISION/INJURY SHOULD THE ENGINE DIE SUDDENLY. I HAVE ALSO EXPERIENCED APPROXIMATELY TWENTY OCCURRENCES WHERE MY VEHICLE FAILS TO START. I HAVE NOTED THAT THIS USUALLY OCCURS AFTER A SHORT DRIVE WITH AN ATTEMPT TO RESTART AFTER APPROXIMATELY 30 MINS WHICH RESULTS IN THE NO START CONDITION. AN EXAMPLE WOULD BE A TRIP TO A GROCERY STORE. FRUSTRATING BEYOND BELIEF. CHRYSLER SERVICE CENTER UNABLE TO HELP AS NO PARTS OR REMEDY AVAILABLE FOR THE ORDERED RECALL. CONTACTED FIAT/CHRYSLER REP BUT HE WAS OF NO ASSISTANCE. THE REP INSISTED THAT THE VEHICLE WAS SAFE TO DRIVE BUT I STRONGLY DISAGREE. HIS REMEDY IS TO TOW THE VEHICLE AT MY COST TO THE DEALER UPON EXPERIENCING STALL BUT I FEEL THAT DRIVING THE VEHICLE TO FAILURE IS GROSSLY NEGLIGENT.THIS DODGE DURANGO IS NOT ONLY UNRELIABLE HAVING EXPERIENCED SO MANY NO START CONDITIONS BUT THE STALL AT SPEED IS CERTAINLY UNSAFE.
