Son is making my 2005 Dodge Durango not able to start fully somehow

Asked by Oct 23, 2015 at 05:48 AM about the 2005 Dodge Durango

Question type: General

Hello, my son has been up to some mischief latley and has been "un-
plugging" (as he puts it) my 2005 Dodge Durango. I checked the front
under the hood and everything I can SEE (not that I'm a car expert in the
least!)is plugged in. The car will turn over when started but not fully, it tries
hard but doesn't ever go ALL the way over. It takes him no time at all to do
whatever he is doing so it must not be a great deal of work. Please anyone
help this is very frustrating!

I would tell him to go put it all back together correctly so it will start and run properly, them keep him away from your vehicle, he could easily damage electronic components that can cost a fair chunk money. If you can't keep him m away then start some unplugging of your own, like gaming, Internet access etc. if he has damaged anything then he can help pay for repairs. Get tough that is totally uncalled for.
