Question about 2005 Dodge Dakota Club
After putting the cd in after about 3 seconds it comes back out and says error! Says nothing else- no codes! Thank you!
Posted by Anonymous on
Dead laser is not emitting light.
Thus, no light reflects from the CD back to the unit.
So, it reports "error".
Replace the CD-player.

To change the sparks on a 2005 4.7L Dodge Dakota you will need the following:
Note you will have to remove the air intake located at the top of the engine, and will have to move some of the coolant lines out of the way.
At the top of the engine there are 4 sparks on each side. The coils are held in place with a 10mm bolt. Undo the 10mm bolt and unclip the coil. Next pull out the coil.
Insert the socket, with extension into the spark plug hole.
Remove spark plug.
Check the gap on new spark plug, it should match stock.
tighten to approximately 25ft.lbs. (check spark-plug packaging for exact torque requirements).
repeat this process with all other sparks.
be sure that no dirt gets into the spark plug holes.

intermittent loss of ckp or cmp.problem is in the distributor.make sure rotor not loose or distributor hold down bolt loose.camsensor on the distributor.also check to see if crank sensor is loose and out of adjustment.

It's really not that difficult to access and remove your car stereo. If you do plan on pulling / making new connections it's important to disconnect power to the vehicle first. This can be done by pulling the negative (black) terminal from the battery. A quick google query on your vehicle actually came across some very good pictures of the process LINK . While the work done on that site is not specifically addressed to your need, it should be useful for what to expect and how things will look. It looks like there are two screws located near the base of the trim that need to be removed first. Next, you need to carefully pry the trim piece back as it is held on by some retainer clips. It is important not to be too forceful as the trim, the clips, or even worse things could get damaged. Try to find a small spatcula or plastic scrapping tool to help guide the trim away from the dash. Once you get the trim off the radio looks to be held in place by four black #2 phillips head screws. Take those screws out and gently pull back the radio head just far enough to access the wires in the back. The wires will plug into the back of the radio with a plastic harness. Again use care in trying to remove the wires so as not to cause any damage. Do not pull on the wires themselves but rather the plastic harness. There should also be one small jack that is for the antenna connection. Remove this also. Then there you have it! Your radio should be out allowing you full access to it. As for the iPod accessory, that may be another story on installation. Good Luck!

Hello shoretex...Yes sir you can repair this yourself...
p0442 is medium leak detected ...p0456 is small leak....and p0440 is a general evap system failure.. evap codes are a common thing. gas caps are an inexpensive place to start. There are two types of evap hoses on the Dodge... hard plastic and soft rubber.... before you replace parts check the soft rubber first at the evap cans and pump located about a foot in front of the gas tank fill pipe on trucks located next to the transfer case or right behind the trans on the driver side. hard plastic lines will brake or rub through...check spots where lines come in contact with anything. this is a common thing with older trucks...hair line cracks will kick a p0442 code, and a p0445 code...When you find a leak, repair it, and rescan...sometimes there are several leaks, continue with inspection and repairs until you get it all fixed up.... Remember..start at simple and work from there...
i will post the evap. system in more detail to help you troubleshoot the problem.
EVAP System: The Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Control system used on all vehicles is the charcoal canister storage method. This method transfers fuel vapor from the fuel tank to an activated carbon (charcoal) storage device (canister) to hold the vapors when the vehicle is not operating. When the engine is operating, the fuel vapor is purged from the carbon element by intake air flow and consumed in the normal combustion process. The evaporative system includes the following components: *Fuel tank *Evaporative emission canister vent solenoid *Fuel tank pressure sensor *Fuel pipes and hoses *Vapor lines *Fuel cap *Evaporative emission canister *Purge lines *Purge valve solenoid EVAP System Operation: The EVAP purge solenoid valve allows manifold vacuum to purge the canister. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies a ground to energize the EVAP purge solenoid valve (purge on). The EVAP purge solenoid control is Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) or turned on and off several times a second. The EVAP canister purge PWM duty cycle varies according to the operating conditions determined by the mass air flow, the fuel trim, the engine coolant temperature, and the intake air temperature. For certain EVAP tests, the diagnostic will be disabled if the TP angle increases to above 75% . The evaporative leak detection diagnostic strategy is based on applying vacuum to the EVAP system and monitoring for vacuum decay. The fuel level sensor input to the PCM is used to determine if the fuel level in the tank is correct to run the EVAP diagnostic tests. To ensure sufficient volume in the tank to begin the various diagnostic tests, the fuel level must be between 15% and 85% . The PCM monitors the fuel tank pressure/vacuum level via the fuel tank pressure sensor input. Results of Incorrect Operation: Poor idle, stalling and poor driveability can be caused by the following: *Malfunctioning purge solenoid. *Damaged canister. *Hoses/lines split, cracked and/or not connected properly. Evidence of fuel loss or fuel vapor odor can be caused by the following: *Liquid fuel leaking from the fuel lines *Cracked or damaged canister *Inoperative canister control valve Vacuum hoses that are: *Disconnected *Mis-routed *Kinked *Deteriorated *Damaged The evaporative leak detection diagnostic strategy is based on applying vacuum to the EVAP system and monitoring vacuum decay. The PCM monitors vacuum level via the fuel tank pressure sensor input. At an appropriate time, the EVAP purge solenoid and the EVAP vent solenoid are turned on, allowing engine vacuum to draw a small vacuum on the entire evaporative emission system. After the desired vacuum level has been achieved, the EVAP purge solenoid is turned off, sealing the system. A leak is detected by monitoring for a decrease in vacuum level over a given time period, all other variables remaining constant. A small leak in the system causes DTC P0442 to be set. If the desired vacuum level cannot be achieved in the test described above, a large leak or a faulty EVAP purge solenoid is indicated. This can be caused by the following conditions: *Disconnected or faulty fuel tank pressure sensor. *Missing or faulty fuel cap. *Disconnected, damaged, pinched, or blocked EVAP purge line. *Disconnected or damaged EVAP vent hose. *Disconnected, damaged, pinched, or blocked fuel tank vapor line. *Disconnected or faulty EVAP canister solenoid. *Disconnected or faulty EVAP vent solenoid. *Open ignition feed circuit to the EVAP vent or purge solenoid. *Damaged EVAP canister. Any of the above conditions sets DTC P0440. A restricted or blocked EVAP canister vent path is detected by drawing vacuum into the EVAP system. The PCM turns off the EVAP vent solenoid and the EVAP purge solenoid (EVAP vent solenoid Open, EVAP purge PWM 0% ). The PCM monitors the fuel tank pressure sensor input. With the EVAP vent solenoid open, any vacuum in the system should decrease quickly unless the vent is blocked. A blockage is caused by the following conditions: *Faulty EVAP vent solenoid (stuck closed). *Plugged, kinked, or pinched vent hose. *Shorted EVAP vent solenoid driver circuit. *Plugged evaporative canister.
Good luck shoretex, hope this helps...please take time to rate me a fixya.
