There could be several things wrong with your Durango including bad speed sensors, a bad instrument cluster, broken cable or connector, etc. There is a very common problem with Dodge Durango's, however, that causes the speedometer to fail or only begin to work after about 15-20 mph. On my 1999 Durango, the anti-lock brake light was permanently on along with the parking brake light. My speedometer did not work below about 15 mph. I did a serach online and found that lots of people had this same problem and it was due to a faulty rear speed sensor. This sensor is mounted on top of the rear differental and can easily be removed and replaced with a socket wrench. A new one costs about $12. If you are experiencing similar problems I would suggest trying to replace it.
