    My used 2006 Durango Limited has some glitches with the instrument cluster. The Tire Pressure Monitor light is on yet this feature was not available for the 2006 model. Also, the "Cargo Light" for the rear hatch stays illuminated even after the door is closed. This light does eventually go out after 2 or three cycles but always comes back on with subsequent hatch openings. I believe the instrument cluster was changed due to a recall concerning a fire hazard from over heating. I'm hoping a dealer can reconfigure the cluster or reprogram the BCM to address these issues. If anyone has any info regarding this problem any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to Allpar. The recall (edit: Recall # G07) was a wiring terminal relocation and a cluster software reprogram (flash). There were some clusters that didn't take the repair and had to be replaced.

    The instrument cluster was a 'module' that controlled many functions previously done by a BCM/CTM in the older Durango/Dakota. It is fully addressable with a capable scan tool and can store fault codes.
    It is configured to the options on the vehicle and is VIN-specific. If someone just put a newer junkyard cluster in it without configuring it, it could think that it still has TPM and just isn't seeing it?
