Dodge Durango owners have reported 262 problems related to car stall (under the engine and engine cooling category).
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.

On June 20, 2014, my Dodge Durango citadel stalled in traffic at 50 mph, almost causing a horrible accident. This was the 2nd time it had occurred. I coasted the vehicle to a side street.
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.

Driving on the NJ turnpike the engine light suddenly came on and then the engine locked up. The truck is regularly maintained and has not had any accidents prior to this. The car is not even 7 full years of age yet. Called Chrysler and they refuse to help out due to age and miles. How does a car in great running condition just stall and die while driving?.

The approximate failure and current mileage was 51,000.
Has occurred multiple times. Initially my 05 Durango would stall when pulling into parking spaces. Has progressed to normal driving conditions at around 35 mph while turning the engine will shut off. Occasionally the rpms will jump up and down too. Engine idles around 500rpm. When this first occurred there were no warning lights illuminated. I just don't feel like this is a safe vehicle at this point in time and based off of the other reports, Dodge should investigate and repair at no cost.

Vehicle stalled out on me during a heavy rain. I was going about 60mph on the highway, when vehicle started to shake. About 5 minutes after heavy rain, I lost all power and had to pull my vehicle off to the side of the road. I waited about 30 minutes and rain began to slow to a drizzle. Vehicle cranked right up after that. This is a very dangerous situation as I could have been rear ended on the highway. I have looked into this issue as I have had rough idles and stall outs when in automatic car washes. The issue seems to be with the cowl and a replacement cowl is available through the manufacturer at our own cost. If this issue has been addressed as a defect on an oem part then why should the consumer who has already paid for a vehicle be liable? I hope that this is more thoroughly investigated and it does not take the fatality of an unsuspecting consumer for issue to be addressed.

My vehicle stalls with no notice. No rpm loss. No warning lights. Just stalls. This is going to cause a serious accident. The first time this happened I was making a left turn into my drive way. The next time while slowing friom 35 mph to make a left turn onto a side street. The last 2 times I have been in heavy traffic having it stall when merging into the turn lane. I have serached the internet and find numerous complaints of this very same issue. Not sure why Chrysler has not stepped up and addresssed this issue.

Vehicle stalled at 60mph. Speed and tach went to zero. Vehicle wouldn't start. Would start after cooling down about 20 minutes. Would stall again. Same thing over and over again. Finally it stalled for good. Had it towed to Dodge dealer. Dealer said the problem was the pcm. Paid $2000 to have pcm installed with a new ignition coil. It lasted about 4 hours and 200 miles and it stalled again. Samething over again. Had it towed to another Dodge dealer paid an additional $260 had another ignition coil installed and it still doesn't run right. The dash warning lights come on intermittantly, the security system engages for no reason and continues to stall. Dodge can't seem to find the cause of the problem, can't fix the problem, or simply doesn't care. My vehicle currently won't start and is grounded. All this after almost $2500 repairs from Dodge that didn't fix the problem. I have all the repair invoices from the dealers.

The contact owns a 2012 Dodge Durango. While driving at an unknown speed, the vehicle stalled. There were no warning indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but was not diagnosed nor repaired. The failure mileage was unknown.
Engine hydrolocked due to excessive water pouring from the windshield onto the engine causing water to penetrate the cylinders. Vehicle would stall when driving in the rain or in a carwash. Well maintained and oil changed frequently. Now vehicle is worthless due to Dodge design flaw or faulty parts.
Just got my Durango on 1-14-2013 coming home and the engine light came on and it just cut off coming down a busy highway when it cut off there is no power stalls hard to get off the road the cars behind me don't know what gone on just in front of them so they don't know to stop. When I got this Durango no one told me about this . .

The contact also mentioned that on multiple occasions while driving at various speeds, the vehicle would suddenly stall. In addition, while attempting to stop the vehicle by depressing the brake pedal, the brakes had malfunctioned increasing the stopping distant needed to stop the vehicle.

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango, bought it used about 4 years ago. About a year and half ago, approximately March of 2013, the vehicle started to stall while driving. It happened at all speeds and after it happening multiple times we figured out that it happened when it was wet/raining out. This is extremely scary and dangerous when going 70mph on the highway. . . To have your vehicle jerk numerous times and then completely shutoff (aka no power at all!). We have spent a few thousand dollars since spring of 2013 trying to fix the issue. We worked closely with our dealer to figure out the exact problem. . . Figured out it was electrical (possibly when the windshield wiper are used. . . )but that was about as far as we got. Some of the things they found and/or fixed or replaced are as follows: wiring that was frayed, re-ground numerous wires, replaced a handful of sensors, resealed connections between electrical components and main module (as well as resealed the boxes themselves since water was found in them), replaced the electrical module ($2k), and replaced entire electrical box(which included having to re-wire). . . Found a used one since brand new would have been $1200! . I have recently seen that there was a petition to the government to investigate (and hopefully recall) vehicles that have situations similar to what I have described above but they reference vehicles manufactured 2007 and forward but our 2006 is having the same issues!! since it has been to the dealer last (less than a month ago) we have not had the problem but there was a stretch over the winter where it didn't happen at all either so I am not convinced it is fixed. . . It seems the dealer mechanic is about out of ideas and so are we. . .
The vehicle has been continually stalling at lower rpm. I have had a tune up on the vehichle to include cleaning the throttle body, new plugs, plug wire boots, air filter and repeated diagnostic analysis at local garage. No engine codes are being registered. The local garage has a mechanic that has been a Dodge mechanic for 15 years. He coordinated w/ the local Dodge garage and re-flashed the ecm. 2 hours out of the mechanics garage, the vehicle stalled in a busy intersection and continues to stall and run horribly at low rpm.

The vehicle stalls while making turning maneuvers at low speeds which disables the power steering and brakes. This has occured on numerous occasions but the dealer is unable to duplicate the prolem and has not been able to correct this issue. This has always occur during decelerations, such as braking for a stop sign or traffic signal. When it happen I must immidiately put the vehicle in park and restart it, but luckily this has not let to an accident yet.
The car begins to sputter and stall at constant speeds, then stalls while running which disables the power steering and brakes. This situation is profoundly dangerous as it renders the car nearly unable to stop. The only way you can stop is if you can get the car into neutral, coast off the road and quickly restart the engine. The engine light does come on during. I have gotten this issue repaired four times and it continues to occur and the sensors that correspond to the code have been replaced twice each and are in full working order. Dodge is aware of the issue but will not do anything.

The electrical portion started after I first purchased the vehicle. The issue worsened after someone broke into the vehicle. The car wouldn't stay charged, and I ended up needing a tow every other week. My car insurance went up to $550. 00 a month. I was always stranded. The problem was worse in the rain. Sometimes the car would cut off while driving, it did it once on the highway and I saw a semi coming down the highway and I thought I was dead. I got it started and pulled over to the shoulder because I didn't have enough speed to get out the way. Eventually it couldn't' start anymore. I had it sitting for a year as I kept making loan payments. I fixed one thing after the other. . . Thinking it was the problem. . . The car would start and die a few days later. This last time I changed the starter for the third time. A rod was thrown and the engine is locked. I wasn't even driving the vehicle, it started after 3rd starter was installed and a crunch noise sounded a few minutes later while trying to give the battery some juice. I towed it into another shop and they confirmed the engine is gone. I had to pay full coverage insurance because it's financed and a car note for a truck that's gone. I've searched online and Dodge knows and hasn't taken responsibility. Involuntary repossession would be futile because after the fee for repo, towing, storage. . I will owe more than what I have left to pay, $5000. 00 and still not even scrap metal. I've read so many discussion board post, consumer blogs on this model and 'm floored. I guess the complaints are recent because one you get to like 70,00 mile you are toast. I don't drive to work, only on the weekends and I take good care of my truck and now I have nothing but payments and metal that looks pretty on the outside.
