When we unlock/lock the doors we can hear a clicking noise under the truck. Sometimes while driving or taking a tight turn I can feel the 4x4 kick in.

Shifts into 4 wheel drive without warning the actuator will be functioning with the key out of the durango and no one in it. Very dangerous

Changes into 4x4 on its own... Clicking when I hit the remote door locks.....transfer case keeps trying to switch to 4x4
Transfer Case Needs to be replaced. Used with 14K miles for $700 plus $400 labor. New would be $2,100 plus $400 labor

Haven't fixed it yet. Shifts into 4lo driving down the interstate. Frustrating!!!

"Svc 4wd" light comes on from time to time, but turns off again after a few minutes. Shifts into 4Lo when turning at low speeds, for instance when turning into a parking space. Noise coming from under the car when it is off and the key is out of the ignition.

Clicking noise under car... even at times when the car is turned off! Also, that clicking noise sounds like an air compressor firing a blast of air. the car will sometimes not move when I begin to pressing the gas pedal it will go really sluggish as if it's stuck on something then gradually work its way out and drive normally. I sent something serious with the transfer case or transmission going on

Service 4wd light comes on the dash, then when trying to make a turn the truck goes into 4lo. Need to stop and put into park and start again.

Same issue with the transfer case randomly shifting in and out of 4 lock and 4 low on it's own while driving at lower speeds. Continues to shift in and out of 4WD when stopped and key is out. Sometimes starts shifting in and out of 4WD when door is opened before starting. The transfer case had attempted to shift on interstate and made a terrible grinding sound last week. Service 4WD light sometimes comes on and I take to the mechanic. Have taken to mechanics several times and they can't determine exactly what is going on. Forward Control Module possibly? Today on the interstate while traveling at 65-70 mph on inside lane the 4wd light came on and then the transfer case apparently disintegrated while shifting and I lost all power instantly which almost caused me to wreck as I had to cross three lanes of moderate traffic coasting with no power, engine revved but no power to the trans-axle. How this is not a recall item recommended by the NTSB to Dodge is unbelievable as this is a fairly commonplace occurrence and definitely a safety hazard worthy of a recall.

Shifts into 4wd high and lo by itself, can hear it shifting when opening car doors with remote key.
