I turned left sharply into a parking spot and the vehicle completely stalled on me upon doing this. I lost all engine power, steering and brake control. I was able to restart the vehicle immediately and park the vehicle. For the previous 3 weeks or so the vehicle has sputtered and been sluggish when turning sharply into parking spots or around sharp corners but has never stalled. 8/19/15 was the first incident of the vehicle completely stalling.

As I was driving down the street in light rain my 2004 Dodge Durango begin to shake and stall. As I came to a stop I recall the SUV smoking. I stop the SUV immediately and could tell the smoke was coming from under the hood. I notified my mechanic and had the truck towed to the shop where he told me the cowl panel was allowing water to leak onto my engine which would cause water yo get into my intake that would result into a blown engine. I notified Chrysler/Dodge to no avail they act as if they have never heard of the issue, which is surely incorrect because of all the post of people would common issues with there Dodge Durango. This should definitely be a recall.

I have received 3 recalls notifications and only one its taken care off iaw dealer - ferman Dodge in sr54, tampa FL. I received a p60, p45 and p50 or p54 don't have the recall doc with me. The dealer is stalling on getting the parts according to them. But, I bet its a paying customer that comes with same problem and the parts I bet it will appear very quick. On 12. 25. 2014, I was going at 45 mph and suddenly and the speed slowed down and had to pull to the side, turn off the car and start it again, a verify scary moment with family in the car. Its been now 2 months since I mentioned to them the car is suffering of long cranks. Have to play with ignition to get it to start. The car only have 51+k miles and should not have this happen. Need to get this issue resolved or I will keep pushing to the top to get my car fixed.

There have been 6 recalls on my car. I have had my name on the waiting list at my dealer, only to be told it could be about a year. I keep getting recall letters as I'm waiting for one thing and no parts available for another. I always have children in my car and feel extremely unsafe to drive everyday. The weather is getting dangerous and one of the recalls is on my brakes. I was told, "don't worry, it should be ok until the winter. " well, the winter is here and I still have about 6 months left on the waiting list. How is one supposed to drive and feel safe, knowing my car can "stall without warning", have an "under hood fire" or have my "brakes fail" at any moment while in driving? what's even worse is, there's nowhere to turn because everywhere I call "sorry maam, there aren't any parts. . " great! now I'm lost and risking my life on a day to day basis. Help!!!.

The vehicle stalls/loses power while driving down the road, it gives no warning and once the vehicle loses power you lose control of steering and come to an abrupt stop. This leave the vehicle stranded wherever you are with little to no way to safely pull to the side of the road or highway. This is an ongoing issue with this vehicle, it has been into the dealership multiple times and they have continuously failed to find or solve the issue. It is extremely concerning that this vehicle is ultimately putting my family in grave danger as the times that the vehicle has broke down have been in the middle of busy intersections. The forums and web searches online appear to prove that this is a common issue with Dodge yet the manufacturer is unable to solve the issue or put out a recall in regards to the problem. This is not only endangering the lives of my family but potentially the lives of many other unsuspecting owners/families.

This is the known issue with tipm failure, the car just stalled and lost all power and would not start back up. The engine would turn just fine when starting but would not start. Had it towed to my regular mechanic and he let me know today that it is the tipm which is currently unavailable with long wait times.

The 2011 Dodge Durango started having issues with failed starts. It would take multiple instances to get vehicle to start. Sometimes the the fuel pump would continue to pump even though engine was stopped. This causes a very smoky burning smell coming from exhaust and engine. Took car to dealership and they report the issue is a faulty tipm module. The part is on back order but vehicle is unsafe due to potential issues with stalling while running. Repairs estimated at $1200.

We attempted to start our vehicle, but the engine would not start. After several minutes vehicle started but stuttered, as if their was no fuel going to the engine. There had been no engine or service lights at the time. I researched the issue online and found that many Durango and cherokee owners have experienced similar issues, and the cause was the tipim. I took my vehicle to the dealership and they tested it, and found it was a problem with the tipim, which was failing to engage the fuel pump. Luckily our car was parked at the time the problem started. My wife generally drives this vehicle with my two small children. Our warranty ended at 36000 miles, so it was not covered. My options were to replace the tipim for 1200 dollars, or pay 428 dollars to have an external relay installed to bypass the faulty tipim (Chrysler star case #s1308000399). We chose to have the bypass installed. Vehicle is running fine at this point, but we are worried other issues (air bags deployed etc) will be a future problem.

The problem first manifested itself in an occasional difficulty starting the vehicle, typically after it sat overnight. Upon pressing the start button the starter would engage but the engine would not start. Pressing the start button again to stop the cranking and then re-pressing the button would get the engine to start. Weeks would sometimes go by without the problem recurring. Around the middle of July 2014 the problem started to get much worse, the car sometimes not starting multiple times during the day even after short stops. Around the end of July my wife had the problem happen to her, got the vehicle started, but as she backed out of a parking spot the vehicle stalled in the traffic lane. After that incident I took the vehicle to a Dodge dealership where they "cleared several fault codes" and sent me on my way. Three days later the vehicle once again wouldn't start, but the "reset and repress" tactic would work and the vehicle would run. Around August 7 2014 the problem got much worse. The vehicle took multiple attempts and 1-2 minutes to get running on several mornings, now though the vehicle would stall once started and before moving. Once running, in gear, and moving the car would run fine. Car failed to start then each morning Aug 15-17, taking 1-2 minutes each morning and multiple stalls. On afternoon of August 17, 5 minutes after making a dealer apt for next morning, I was driving at about 10 miles per hour and the engine died completely, power steering and brakes went out as well. Only after 3 minutes did finally using the remote start function on the key fob get the vehicle to start and run, this on a very busy roadway blocking a lane of traffic. Next day vehicle would not start at the dealer either, they diagnosed a bad tipm module and offered me a new module for $1200 or a "relay kit" for $587. New module cured problem for now.

When driving the car automatically stalls while in drive so I have to put it into neutral then back into drive and then it drives again. This has happened about 4 times I have taken the car back to the dealership and they seem to think and tell me they found nothing wrong. They say no warning lights were on. I explained to them that no warning lights appeared when this happens.
