Remove the feed wire from the switch. Short gone?
If it has it is after the switch, if not the cable feeding the switch is probably trapped and been damaged. Follow it back to the feed point.

It could be a blown fusible link. These are hidden in the wiring on most cars either near the battery connections, or near the starter motor. To find, use a test lamp and start at the battery and work your way along the power wires until you get t a place where there is no power. There is usually a lump or narrow spot in a wire where the link is.

There are a few things you can check. There should be a large fuse in the fuse box in the engine compartment. I believe it is a 100amp fuse. If you connect the jumper cables backwards or even touch the wrong post for a split second it can cause that fuse to blow. Also check the connector on the back of the alternator they sometimes are dirty or have a bad connection in the plug also check to make sure the connectors are not open and are making good contact. Do yourself a favor and check all the fuses inside the cab and in the engine compartment. Good luck and let me know if this fixes it, if not I will research it. I will look for your reply over the next few days

Dakotas and Durangos are notorious for crankshaft position sensor failures. Often these start off as intermittent issues. When they occur, it's like someone shuts off the key. If may start right back up or may take minutes or hours to clear up. It isn't the only thing that can cause this issue, but is the first one I'd look at. The sensor is relatively cheap ($50.00) and is easily installed as it is attached to the transmission bell housing.

Get the VIN number of the vehicle from the lower left-hand corner of the windshield. Contact the local Dodge dealer with the VIN number. Be prepared to show proof of ownership of the vehicle (title, registration, bill-of-sale). They can cut a replacement key for you.

Check the electrical connector to the switch. It might be partially melted and bowed out. They do sell separate switch connectors, if yours is bad.

Taking your heating box apart may be a really big job.
It would be good to check the vacuum supply at the heater box, and/or at the controls.
Lack of sufficient vacuum can cause the heater to not work.
The low vacuum could be due to a vacuum leak somewhere before it gets to the controls or the heater box.
Then, the heater box or flaps could be stuck or warped, causing malfunction.
It is all repairable, but can cost you a lot of time and effort fixing this.
God bless your efforts.
