    Gen III Factory Service Manual

    The factory service manual(s) for the Gen III Durango are only available on CD (since they never offered printed copies of the Gen III manuals), correct?

    And this is the best place (as well as price) to order the factory service manual CD from for my '14 Durango, correct?

    https://www.techauthority.com/produc...del=698&type=4

    TIA.

    You are correct on both counts (except it is a DVD, not CD). Note that the folks that put it together did not provide the wiring diagrams, nor are there any hyperlinks to make browsing an easy thing to do.

    Thank you. I thought it was a DVD, but they call it a CD, so....

    $135 and they still don't supply the electrical wiring diagrams?!? In the old days that was a separate printed manual all to itself, complete with large easy to follow fold out pages, wire jacket color coding and even diagrams noting correct component locations. Sorry I know I am showing my age but, WTF!

    I'd look into getting a Shopkey Pro subscription. Everything on the service DVD plus wiring diagrams.

    Oh man, Chrysler may have not built the best vehicles, but their factory service manuals were light years beyond any other auto manufacturer in detail and information "in the good old days".

    Regarding the wiring diagrams, I can tell you that I know someone that paid $35 for 3 days access to the website, and then converted the wiring diagrams into PDFs. Saved a lot of $$, but spent a lot of time doing screen captures over those 3 days.

    HOLY MOLEY, EVERYONE!!!

    I found the most amazing thing, poking around Mopar's websites!!!! They might have hidden a lot, or made tons of things subscription, but I found an official Mopar website that shows virtually every electrical connector in our DDs!!!! You all need to look here: Mopar Connection Repair Kit.

    I have only just begun to wander around it, and MAN, it is AMAZING! If you do know anything about electricity, or electronics, you will probably gain some valuable insight into the workings of your DD that Dodge/Mopar didn't think we'd find!

    Thoughts?

    I think this is the new version of the old site I used to use when I was making Y adapters or pigtails to mod my avenger without damaging the harness. If its different I'll post the other site as well when I get home.

    I'd totally dig a PDF file, its searchable and can but used on any platform. I don't even own anything with a Disc Drive aside from my 2008 Dodge Avenger. All my other cars have only sd/usb/etc (Durango), Cassette desks (80's cars), 8 tracks, or just straight am or am/fm tuners. Highend windows and mac computers don't have disc drive anymore, mobile devices don't.....sigh.
    I'm actually Dyslexic, so please excuse my spelling and grammar, and don't be a Rudolf Hess.
