Question about 1996 Dodge Dakota

2 Answers

'96 Dodge Dakota will crank, but won't run.

I have a '96 Dodge Dakota 5.2 V8 4x4 that will crank, but will not run. I am not getting a spark from the ignition coil. I've replaced the ignition coil, ensured that I have not corrosion at the battery cables and am getting fuel into the system. What are the most probable causes?

A bad crank sensor or dist pickup plate can cause this.... check the fuses in the fuse block under the hood for any blown ..... a bad auto shut down relay may cause it .....try putting a test light on the green and orange wire and see if it lights up when you try to crank it

I have a 96 dodge dakota with a 3.9 V6 i have spark and fuel pressure but it wont fire at all i was told it could be the crank sensor


Always check for spark at the coil first,than see if its going to the spark plugs, I have had bad crank sensor and truck still started.But did you do a scan,get it scaned and see what codes it shows.

Do you have spark?
Do you have fuel?
Which are you missing?
TIP.A quick check for spark.........give it a spray of starting fluid....if it runs....you've got spark.
No spark usually means......a bad coil or ignition module on the 3.9.
No fuel is usually caused by a bad fuel pump.

96 Dodge Dakota .....NO SPARK


you should have power on one terminal of the coil connector when cranking engine,i prefer using a test light..put the lead of your test light on battery positive and check other coil connector terminal..it should flash/pulse..if it is,you need an ignition coil..if not,you may have an engine controller problem..also check harness near controller and fuseblock for corroded wires..controller may not be powered up properly
