If any water gets into engine compartment (rain, etc. . ) the engine will misfire (stationary) or shut off (stationary or driving). If driving while raining, the SUV will misfire and may shut off while driving. The error seems to be well documented on the internet and became all to real this week when the car shut off at 70 mph on the highway while it was raining almost causing an accident and potentially killing my family.

While driving the alert chime indicated that the key fob was not in range. Then the vehicle shut off. The key fob was in the cup holder. The vehicle was in the drive position. I had to stop. Put vehicle in park, restart the vehicle and then put in drive and continue driving. This is the first time that has happened.

My car repeatedly cuts off while I am driving. I noticed that other people have the same issue with the same model as I have which a 2005 Dodge Durango. I did my research and it was identified by Dodge as a low maneuver issue. One incident that happens a few days ago was that my vehicle shut off on a curve while merging on the highway. I am very luck that it was a car behind me and they were not going fast. My car shut off and I lose control of the steering because of the loss of power. I have to put the car in park and then try to start the vehicle. I would like this issue addressed I have complained about this since 2006.

While driving on the highway the car's engine shut down. I placed the car in neutral and restarted the engine with no difficulty. Days later the car was parked and would not start. The engine turned normally but it seems like the fuel is not reaching the engine. It almost seems like a flooded engine. I researched it online and it seems to be an known issue with this car. The tipm (totally intergrated power module) seems to be the issue.

Usually happens when it is hot out but the truck just shuts off with out notice all power too all gauges go to 0 power steering. Does not matter how fast or slow I am going. I have to park it and let it sit anywhere from 5 minutes up to two hours. I have had several parts replaced and the problem continues no one seems to have an answer. This is so dangerous not only for me but also all other drivers on the road. This needs to be figured out soon I fear for my life and the life of others.

I've had my Durango back to the dealer several times for the stalling issue. They allege that all repairs were completed in late November. I then went out of town on business for two months. I came back in late January, and the vehicle continued to stall on me while driving. They said the warranty work was done on the fuel pump relay in November. When I took it back in February, they replaced the computer and the keys because they said that the vehicle was shutting down because the the computer didn't recognize that the key was in the vehicle and it shut down to prevent the vehicle from being stolen. On February 26th, it stalled while driving again. I left a voice mail for the dealership with no return phone call. On March 1st, the vehicle stalled while driving again. The vehicle is now back in the dealership.

I have been having issues with the vehicle engine shutting off as the vehicle is in motion. Sometimes it restarts right up other times it takes a jump pack needed to start ir up. I have complained about this issue before. I contacted Dodge/ Chrysler recall center and I was told that this was happening because of my fuel relay switch that was already recalled and that the situation would be fixed once that was replaced. Well last week the relay switch was replaced on Monday and on both Wednesday and Thursday while operating the car at about 55 mph the vehicle shut off on me. Both times I was able to safely move off the road way. Upon trying to restart the car it would turn off just fine but never start up. Both times I was lucky enough to have a state trooper stop and jump start me using a jump pack. I have had my battery tested and it is fine. The dealer ship stated that there are no error codes showing up so they can't diagnose what is wrong. This is an accident just waiting to happen!.

I was driving approx. 45 per hour, when the vehicle seemed to just shut off in stages, I was able to pull into a parking lot however it did not want to start for a few minutes. When I hit the push button, it would not start. Also it has since been turning over, but not starting. This has been an intermittent problem, and has done this under all conditions including when it has been sitting, and after it has been driven.

When the key is put inside the ignition, it takes a couple of tries for the engine to start (if at all) after failing multiple times. After it starts, sometimes the engine shuts down completely when I am driving at 30+mph and when I hit a stop sign/red light! this is very dangerous and needs to be fixed!.

Engine shutdown, out of the blue. Nobus appeared on odometer. All gauges were on 0, but all other electronics worked. Starter would crank, but ignition would not ignite. I'm not sure if fuel pump went on or not. Vehicle would not start back up for apx 20 minutes. A couple days later, it happened again, then twice in one day. The quickest, but temporary, solution is to cool down pcm. An ice pack works great! but this is not always convenient. Needless to say, problem is worse on hot days. Once this happens, you need to replace pcm because solder joints are broken within. When unit cools, metal contracts, and contact is made again, and truck will start. But keep in mind-the solder joints are still broken. When unit heats back up, metal will expand, and connection will be lost again, causing engine shutdown and no bus to electrical ignition system. The very first time this happened, I had gone over a bump, which is probably what initially "broke" the solder joint. A new pcm can run $400. One from a junk yard could work, but there's always the risk that, it too, has the same problem-maybe that's why the truck is in the junkyard to begin with! and if it was in front end collision, good chance it won't be any good either! I've owned my Durango for 13 years, and it has never really left me stranded. But now that it has this problem, combined with bad design of front hub assy, vehicle is very unsafe and it's time to retire it - even though motor still runs strong.

Between the end of November 2013 and the middle of December 2013, I was driving on the highway and had to slow down as I approached the toll booth. As I slowed down to approximately 35 mph, the engine shut down and the steering wheel locked. I had no control of the vehicle. I put the gear shift into neutral as I rolled along and turned on the ignition to restart the engine. This was the second time this incident occurred within 2-3 weeks.

During November 2013, I drove my vehicle approximately 3 miles from my house to my friends house. I slowed down to approximately 10 miles per hour as I approached my friend's house and the engine shut down with the gear shift in drive. The steering wheel locked. I had no control of the vehicle. I put the gear shift in neutral and turned on the ignition to get the engine started again.

After reading the other posts on this website, I wanted to share my problem. I own a 2000 Dodge Durango ,it has about 172,000 miles. My husband and I are retired and only drive it a few times a week. After owning the truck for four months, it would not start. I had it towed to the garage and was told it was the cam sensor. After the sensor was replaced I had no problems for about six months. Then it would not start sometimes, even when it was cold. It would die while driving regardless of the speed. I mean it just shuts off completely. Sometimes it would start right back up and sometimes it would take fifteen minutes or more. I took it back to the garage and the mechanic was surprised that the cam sensor was bad again. He replaced the cam sensor and the truck was good for about four months. Just recently while we on vacation (about two hours from home) the sensor went bad again! luckily we made it home, the mechanic replaced the cam sensor again. If this is a common problem, what doesn't Dodge fix the problem, and reimburse Durango owners for the repair bills!.

At random times the engine will just shut down and I have no power steering at all. It has happened over 15 times now generally when I come to a full stop and also when I am taking a right hand turn at slow speeds.

I was driving on the highway at 65mph, and the vehicle shut off completely. Lost power steering, power brakes, everything. Had 3 small children in the car and had to with all my power (I am 5'9" 235 lbs) navigate the vehicle to the side of the road. I have found this is extremely common problem with this vehicle. Many of the posts state is a manufacturing flaw of where the pcm is placed in the engine.

I was making a u turn and the truck just shut off on me. I had put it on park and restart the engine. I experienced the issue numerous times and have taken it back to car max and they are unable to locate why the vehicle was just cutting off. I recently experienced where the car would start and turn off. Just today I was trying to park the vehicle and the engine just cut off.

While pulling into a parking space at low speed while cranking the steering wheel, the engine just shut off. I had to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting the other cars. This has now happened twice. The Dodge dealership couldn't find a problem and the message boards are full of people experiencing similar near-crashes.
