99 Dodge Durango

Asked by May 11, 2016 at 05:14 PM about the 1999 Dodge Durango 4 Dr SLT 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The feature that keeps track of mpg and
estimated miles remaining on the ceiling
indicator, you can press the right hand button
and it steps through items like Temp outside,
direction, N,S,E,W and remaining miles.
The problem is: I reset the unit back to '0' and
try to start the engine, it cranks but does fire.
The odometer indicated ' no gas', but i know
there was a half of a tank of gas because it
was showing on the fuel gauge before i reset
the unit. If I remove the hot wire on the battery
for a minute and then reconnect it, something
gets reset and the SUV will now start.

the two are unrelated i would have it checked for codes next time it doesn't start and are you sure it said no gas and not no bus? no bus would mean you have a sensor shorting out and pulling down the computer causing it not to start, the instrument cluster is losing communication with the computer. As for pulling the lead off the battery and getting it to start afterward may just be luck on your part.
