My gas peddle got stuck and when I hit the brake peddle it would not brake. I hit a car in front of and the brakes would not work. There's a recall on the throttle on the Durango's. I had taken my Durango to the shop and I told them that the Durango was sounding wierd that it felt like something was skipping. But they said nothing was wrong.

ABS and traction control lights come on and stay on. I just turned on the car and the lights stayed on. I have had my 2004 Dodge Durango for 9 months and it has been in three times for the ABS problem. A total of 17 days and still counting. They changed the speed sensor, the wiring harness, and the ECM for ABS and now its back in the shop.
