Time for a new ignition switch. This just the switch portion and not the tumbler. You should be able to still use your old tumbler and key. Good luck to you. Thanks for using Fixya!

Where the hell is the turn signal flasher located on a dodge Dakota 2005


Does not have one. It uses the instrument cluster and the integrated power module to run signals and generate indicator noise.

I have a 2005 dodge dakota. Yesterday in starting my truck I got an message just showing "ERROR" where the milage would show on the gauage cluster. I have checked the truck owners manual and there is


The message ERROR means the instrument cluster is not communicating with the computer.
It could be a wiring problem, or something with the computer.

I have a 1993 dakota 3.9 v6 replaced fuel pump,had wiring checked, and replaced cluster but fuel gauge still doesn't work any help would be greatful


Was the sending unit replaced

You say you had something done or checked

We have over 300 new people a day, come to this
site alone, that have not found a repair shop or dealer
that can resolve anything, at all

Why is that,I ask?

I have 1992 dakota factory manuals from mine old one

If you get specific about serious wire chasing I will
look things up for you.

I have a 2005 Dodge Dakota V8 4x4 when key is in start position gauges and radio will not work, in accessory position they work and then will not shut off when trying to turn off.


This may sound crazy but, I believe they feed through the cluster. I have had durangos and grand cherokees with problems like this. The durango was an 04 and the dome lights would not shut off. The grand cherokee was a radio that would not shut off. It was in the Insterment Cluster both times. I have not seen this problem with a dakota however. I am betting the same manufactor makes all of their clusters.
