Dodge Durango problems

Hello All,
I have a nice 2000 Durango 4x4 SLT, automatic. I have some problems with my beast and would like some advice.

  1. The drivers door outside latch will not open the door, the inside latch works fine.
  2. The shifter on the transfer case is loose, it appears that the drive was left in 2wd since I have been able to use it. But it will not shift?
  3. The steering wheel feels like it has a lot of play in it, also feels like a knuckle is in it when I turn it. It sometimes slips on turns at speed?
    Well that’s all I have folks any incite to any of these issues would be welcome.
    Thanks to all…

#1, I think you have to take the interior door panel off. look for a disconnected or broken piece.
