2003 durango cuts out while driving?

Hey guys. My wife's 2003 Durango SXT w/ 4.7 cut out while she was driving. She said she was just driving at a steady pace and all of a sudden the speedo went from 60 to 30MPH , felt like it lost all power, all dash lights went out and then within a second everything went back to normal. Any Ideas?

Hey, sorry your wife was subjected to that, (my wife's T+C had a bad fuel pump, it would go nuts on her) the way you described it, it sounds just like it happened in a movie only it was the whole city, you know? Original battery? Replace it. The PCM doesn't like a flaky battery, but it could also be a bad connection, check the wires first. I should state that I've got MY original battery.

That was my initial thought...but bateery checks out so does the wiring.I was leaning toward ignition switch

If the battery is good, I'd blame the PCM next.
