Question about 1995 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Truck dies while driving

Driving along at any speed the truck will just stall or more like shut off. I have to pull over , turn the key off, wait 5 seconds , ( not 4 not 3 ) restart it and it starts right up but does it again and again. I have had the crankshaft position sensor replaced, dist pickup plate ,dist cap and rotor, wires, o2 sensor, map sensor, fuel pump, auto shut down relay, pcm, battery,starter,ignition switch,throttle body gasket,and redid all soldered connections in the wire harness. This has been going on for 2 months and now its gotten worse. Truck stalls as soon as I put it in gear and wont restart at all unless I rock the truck back and forth like I am trying to flip it over on its side and jump in and turn the key . It will restart but will shut back off as soon as I put it in reverse or forward.

02 is not the problem you stated there where cel on when the car died. They could have been pending codes not related to the stall. Common on this car is crank, cam sen. If the crank fails it will stall and not show a crank sen fault code.

Car stalle Security light on


Try your spare key.It could be that the primary key you have been using needs to be reprogrammed,which can be done by contacting a dealer.Turn the key to the "On" position in order to reset the pass lock system.Wait for fifteen minutes with the key in the "On" position.If the security light disappears, turn the key to the "Accessories" position and wait for a couple of seconds.Turn the key to the "Off" position and take it out from the lock cylinder. Wait a couple of seconds and turn the car on.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Wiggle the key in the truck when the truck is running. Your losing fuel or spark. Check connections in the fuse panel. Check wiring harnesses for tight connections. Email me back. mobilemechanic01234@yahoo.com, Good Luck Jim
