I was reading your post to see if anyone had the same problem as I do. I have access to an O-scope and other high tech goodies. I brought it to a mechanic and had it replaced. Can it be the speed sensor? Now the light is back on and burning bright again and no flickers at all, I even took it back up on the freeway but it did not go out.

If you have pressure and the transmission goes to 3rd gear then you have to look at the wiring and governor valves. I did have it scanned and it said it was the output shaft speed sensor.
I don't know if either has been tested but output speed sensor shows up on my bill and maybe this is the problem - Governor pressure transducer? This leads me to believe it may be the transmission speed sensor or something else eletronic. If you replaced the correct speed sensor on the transmission and the cluster was rebuilt correctly, then you may have a problem in the wiring harness between the speed sensor and cluster. If you still have the original battery, and it's having problems, that can cause a lot of strange instrument cluster problems. Cycling the power will restore normal operation however, put it neutral and turn the car off and back on and its perfect again till i stop. The vehicle has stalled several times when I have needed to break suddenly from moderate speeds. The most likely though is a plugged cat.
They did a reset to the computer and it shifted fine and has since until tonight. Terry, my guess would be the governor transducer or solenoid, but a blockage of fluid flow can also cause it. My Dodge Durango 1999 won't shift properly. After removing the pan and filter you need to remove the Valve body only a couple bolts. Hoping its not nothing major. I would like to get the speedometer problem fixed first then work on things from there.
I stopped to get something to eat for about 15 minutes, came back out, and it was fine. The speed sensor will set a code and cause intermittent stalling but I've not seen it cause power loss as you describe. Also my 4 wd just all of a sudden stopped working on the day we get a blizzard. Order your premium quality speed sensor and avail great deals from AutoTrust Platinum! Thanks in advance for your help said. AutoTrust Platinum supplies a growing selection of low-priced transmission and shifter components! You should see main line pressure and the trans should go into 3rd gear. If you replace the output speed sensor and the problem remains, you'll have to have it checked professionally.
Although out of production for a while now, there are still plenty of these popular vehicles on the road. Yes, the code will be in memory even though the light is not on - if any code was set. I brought it back and they found a break in the wire and then fixed that. Still have problem, but now will not shift out of 1st gear. Can you tell me what part in the transmission is the most likely cause shift solenoid, pressure transducer etc. I don't see a transmission speed detector on the transmission tail shaft. They had it hooked up with it running put it into gear and it stalled, nothing showed on their computers.
I know jack stands, just being funny. After reading all the complaints about the Durango Transmission not shifting I put them all in order cheapest to most expensive. JoeD, I'd need a lot more information than that to even make a guess. As I was backing into my driveway they all came back on again, drove forward, lost the speedometer again too. It is not the same as yours at all. It should have set a code at some time with the problem you've described.
I don't think the speed sensor would cause the symptoms you're experiencing. It would be best for you to have it diagnosed by a professional. If you have pressure and the trans goes to 3rd gear then you have to look at the wiring and governor valves. Since 1919, Standard Motor Products has engineered a full line of engine management products, including ignition parts, sensors and on-board computers. You have to be able to read data to see where the signal is being disrupted.
I had a service done at Dodge and the light was turned off but I still have this issue? Soon the engine light came on and it's giving me the P 0500 code. I have a 2000 Dodge Durango 5. You could also have a hard failure where there may be pieces of servo in the pan. I have been doing a lot of searching and I have come up with one thing this is different from all others. Had to speed up and slow down a few times to get it to shift. I have a fitting I made up from an old oxygen sensor to screw in and take a pressure reading, or you can drill your own port in front of the cat and plug it later.
At first badly but now better. You can try changing it and see if it helps. But no sooner that I got the car the very next day it started again. If that doesn't correct your problem though you'll need to take it in to a shop for diagnosis. If you get a low reading you most likely have a short in it. I have a 1999 Dodge Durango 4x4 5. I replaced the speed sensor, but my check engine light didn't go off.
My speedometer does not work and the lights on the dash have lite up like fireworks. I love my Dodge as I constantly make the other guys look bad when I am pulling a bigger load and walk by them going up a hill. I hate to take it into the dealer as it is an hours drive from here and they were not ever able to fix the overhead console problem after several trips down to them and even haveing to leave it with them a couple of times. Ramiro, I don't think you've read any of the other comments so I'll repeat this one. I believe the trans controller is the only module that needs that info. Would it be as easy as checking into autozone and getting the correct one and replacing it? If you wish to keep guessing then going back to get the codes read is your only other option.
