Dodge Dakota - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Have you replaced the clutch switch? If so, you might need to adjust it so it hits correctly. If not, I suggest you replace the clutch switch.

I'd change the coil pack, spark plug, and spark plug wire for cylinder one immediately if you know for certain it's an issue that is isolated to cylinder 1 & is definitely ignition related. What code(s) are you getting with the ibd2 scanner?


Easiest Test: Use an extra spark plug wire to replace the #1 wire and see what happens, it doesn't matter what it's from as long as it fits onto your coil pack and spark plug securely. Start it and see if that makes a difference as it just might- I had to do this to mine, I used a plug wire ore that I found laying on the ground at a local junkyard, I Jake how it sounds but it worked great and is still on that truck to this day with no issues at all after swapping them out!

if that doesn't work just "borrow" a coil pack and plug wire from another cylinder on your engine just to test it out and SE if bkows the fuse. It won't hurt anything to do this and let it run for a 15 seconds just to see if it solves the #1 CyliyIgnition Issue & this will also let you know that it's not an issue with the engine's main wiring harness- if it doesn't blow the fuse as it has been doing after swapping out the coil/wire from another cylinder then just leave it as it is and go pick up a new coil pack and a plug wire to install on the cylinder that you "borrowed" the parts from for cylinder 1.

If if you can get a set of new wires and a set of new spark plugs I'd advise doing so, I mean after you get this solved. Plug wires lose their resistance/ability to transfer energy from the coil to the spark plug over time and if yours are old and/or haven't been replaced before(or in a while) just change them and you won't have to worry about any issues in the future. Buy the parts locally or pick up a set of plugs/wires cheap online, best of luck and let me know if I can vibe of any further assistance. See my message directly below please, I'd be very grateful for any positive feedback as it's the only way I know if I'm doing an effective job!

Hazzards run off a flasher , try a new light switch and see if that helps .......there is also the chance the plug comming thru the firewall is loose . Not common but I have seen it do some simillar things

The injector pulse is in millivolts. A test light will not catch the pulse. You need a noid light.

The horn fuse won't stop the engine from turning over. Check the battery to make sure it's charged and the cables to make sure they are tight. (even at the starter) Just because the battery has enough power to run the accessories, that doesn't mean it has enough power to start the vehicle.

First look at the master door switch. Make sure that there are no bare wires that are shorting each other. Possible internal switch problem.

How to set your clock stereo on 1992 Dodge Dakota

?Turn the vehicle on then push the SEL button. It should flash back and forth between the time and the radio station you are set to. Set it to the time position.
?Now push the SET button. On my original stereo a P comes up. ( I think the P means p.m. but I have not been able to figure out how to change that setting) Next try the SEL button. It should flash to the hour. Use the TUNE knob to scroll to the desired hour.
?Push the SEL button and you should be able to set the desired minutes the same way.
?Push the SEL button again and the clock on your vehicle stereo should be set.

Usually you need to put the key in and turn a little(into the accessory poistion) then use a nail or small screwdriver to push up on the pin under the key cylinder. I had to replace the key on my 2002 Jeep and that was the steps.

Check the "Help"section at your local auto parts store, they have a selection of these "clips" & "fasteners". If for some reason they don't just call the local dealer that sells your type of vehicle and they'll hook you right up for a few bucks at most. No Worries, this is an easy fix.

You can hit up a local junkyard or salvage yard; they'll give it to you or charge a minimal price at worst, that's what I usually do!
