Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
I am assuming you installed a used or junkyard PCM into the vehicle. You are probably experiencing issues from a misprogrammed unit. Each PCM is programmed to the VIN-specific installed components of the vehicle. For example, my 1999 Dakota did not come with a factory anti-theft system installed. If I change PCMs to one that does, it will do exactly what yours is doing since there is nothing installed to tell the PCM that the anti-theft system is working. Many shops and most dealers can reprogram these units. They use the VIN from the vehicle and download the programming from the manufacturer and flash the PCM. Most DIYers do not have the equipment nor the subscription(s) to the manufacturers to get this data.
