Dash gauges not working after left fender replacement everything else fine


Under the hood on the driver side on the firewall there is the main wire harness it has a rubber boot over the plug. Take the tape off from it and pull the rubber boot back look at the bottom left wire should be red and be a pretty good size wire. That wire will get acid on it just like the battery and sometimes mess the hold plug up. Depending if your truck has power windows or any other etc. there are up to 60 wire on that plug. I had to get another plug and rewire all 60 wires on mine since the acid damaged my plug Dodge has this problem on all trucksicon1.png from 88 to 01

My 2000 dodge dakota 4x4 with the 3.9 v6 keeps throwing codes for the crankshaft postioning sensor i have replaces this part and reset the computer about three weeks ago now the code has poped back up


Check for loose or corroded wires. Get yourself a spray CRC type of wire connection cleaner. WD 40 is fine. I upon having strange problems, disconnect wiring connections and spray a shot on both connectors. I disconnect and reconnect a couple times each to clean better. The underside of your fuse panel under the hood needs the same.If you have to unhook the platform and look at all the connections there. That is a trouble spot anyway.
