I have a 2004 Dodge Durango, with the infinity sound system. The vehicle was a total loss purse, two car seats, clothes, umbrellas, cds, etc. Any help would be appreciated. Best thing I can tell you is if you have sound with the ground cable connected to the factory radio, then twist the factory ground wire or cable together with the ground wire for the new Alpine deck, and connect them both to about a 14 gauge wire, run it down to the passenger's kick panel and ground it under an existing nut or bolt there. The overhead temp control was jumping from 54 degrees to negative 40!.
It's a good idea to unplug the radio and amplifier while doing these tests. The head unit had been professionally replaced and sounds great but I noticed the factory sub woofer is not working is there a reason why this may be I have checked all the wires and can find no problems the wiring harness has some sort of circuit board attached to it. The contact received recall notice 07V092000 concerning electrical system: Instrument panel. The vehicle will be towed today. I spoke with the service manager on January 25, 2006 and he told me that Chrysler said static electricity from the seat caused the problem. Disconnect the battery negative cable terminal clamp from the battery negative terminal post. It has the Infinity stock sound system and things I read online says that it is a common for the factory amp to have a problem and cause no sound output and to check the amp fuse.
So far so good I have had my truck back for less than 24 hours so we will see! In the meantime, with the other complaints that have been filed with similar problems like this and the possibility of fires, we are leaving the car out in the driveway just in case. Shortly after the call to 911, a round flame shot through the dash behind the driver instrument panel to the windshield glass. The fire department arrived within a few minutes and extinguished the fire. I asked if they could offer any assistance but they flatly refused because I had pulled the gauges myself even though I am a certified mechanic with 11 years of experience. And take a good look at the mating harness, be sure the amp remote wire on it connects to the right pin and wire on the radio harness. My factory radio, stopped working getting some radio stations nothing else. Then pull backward the right panel: Now you can see the power amplifier: The amplifier is attached with only the two bolts you can see on its down side on the picture above.
The manufacturer refused to disclose the cause of the fire. The time has come to change the car radio of my 2000 Dodge Durango. The inner compartment of the vehicle began to burn and the vehicle was completely destroyed. From what you posted here, it sounds to me like the amplifier is not turning on. I attempted to turn them off but they would not go out with the overhead switch. My first response was to order my family to move away from the vehicle. Within a second or two, there was no audio coming through the car.
The fire department extinguished the fire. The vehicle was parked and the door was opened, but the interior lights did not turn off once the door was closed. The contact owned a 2004 Dodge Durango. Okay here we go: Turn your radio on…. But it will be somewhat loudere with the volume knob at a lower volume level than the factory deck was. This incident will financial impact my family greatly.
Hey thanks a ton Jimmy! If this is so, than i recommend replacing the thermostat… Yes, they fit I have them on mine both the rims and tires. I appreciate your assistance, this is driving me nuts! Also, I asked for the brakes to be checked for the same type of vibration. If necessary, use a battery terminal puller 2 to remove the terminal clamp from the battery post. Further investigation revealed a strong burnt smell from the cluster. I can not put my kids in this truck. I'll probably try to pull it this weekend and see if that does any good.
Sorry for the multiple posts here, just trying to give the most amount of info I can so that someone might be able to help me out here. This information is thought to be correct for the 2000 Dodge Durango but anyone using it should be cautious if something looks different on their particular vehicle, and determine what the difference might be. The car is now a total loss. You can check the speaker wires by cutting the wires that should be for the speaker outputs at the amp and use a 9 volt battery. Now you can see the stereo, attached with its two bolts: Remove the two bolts and the radio will slide out easily. The failure caused the battery to lose its charge on several occasions. I went inside for approximately two hours and when I went outside to leave, I noticed smoke coming from a whole in the windshield.
Once everyone had cleared the vehicle, I opened the hood of the vehicle to check for smoke in the engine compartment. This is for disengage the air-bags sensors. The Chrysler corporation says that they can't authorize a rental until whenever their adjuster contacts me. Going out to the Durango a police officer was extinguishing a fire inside the passenger compartment. The fire started in the dash on the drivers side of the car.
Some early 2002 production models have the old style plugs. The current mileage is 68,000, and failure mileage was 30,000. Consumer states went online and saw a recall for this vehicle. I then proceeded to the passenger side of the vehicle. Wasn't until I tried putting the old deck back in like you suggested that I realized where it was going to.
