SOURCE: How to put a cd player in place of factory stereo in 1994 dodge dakota. Need wiring diagram in color.

i had this problem to, do not hook the ground wire from truck to your radio. use the braided wire that hooked to your old factory radio by inserting a bolt into the braided wire and ground from your new radio.
then check fuses one more time and you are good to go.I didnt think this would work but it did..

SOURCE: 1995 dodge dakota 2wd 3.9 no spark to plugs,or coil,orfuelpump

First of all let's explain how the spark gets to the plugs. There is a crankshaft position sensor and a cam sensor. They are what determines when to fire the coils and injectors. The crank sensor is located on the passenger side on top of the bellhousing, the cam sensor is the pickup plate in the distributor. As the engin turns the send refernece pulses to the computer which grounds and ungrounds the ignition coil causing it to discharge and send voltager from the secondary coil wire to the center tower in the distributor cap. The rotor button recieves the voltage and distributes it to the 6 towers (1 for each cylinder) If you say you're getting spark from the rotor that tells me the primary side of the ignition system is working, and the secondary side is working into the distributor cap. I'd check for spark out of the plug wires at the plugs. Pull a wire and insert a #2 phillips screwdriver into it, hol the shaft of the screwdriver aprox 1/8"(no more) from the exaust manifold and observe the spark as someone turns over the engine. You should see a nice blue spark. If theres spark, spray a little gum cutter in the throttle body an crank it, if it fires you have a fuel problem. Install a fuel pressure gauge on the schrader valve on the fuel rail and observe it as you crank it. If theres no fuel pressure maks sure there's fuel in the tank, if so climb underneath and beat on the bottom of the tank with a rubber hammer, the pump may be going bad, sometimes you can jar them and make them run.

didyou check the cranck sensor? or the distibutor pick up coil, those sensors pick the ignition signal for the computer and send the spark of the coil if any of those sensors are broken dont work the engine and plus check the injection pulses of the fuel injectors too . i hope be help for you fellow

I think yours has an ignition module which can be checked at parts store. Could also be bad coil. If you must have wiring diagram, get shop manual.

Witch wire is spost to be hot running into a coil


Don't know the wire color, but it would be the wire going to the primary positive side of the coil. Does the coil have a + and -, where the small wires hook up? The one with the +, that is the hot wire to the coil, with key on.

My 1988 Dodge Dakota starts when cool, and runs good at all times. However, after the vehicle has ran for 20 min or more, it will turn but will not start again until it cools off.


sounds like your ignition coil is getting hot. it is either a bad connectioin with the wiring leading to your distributor or bad connections with your batt terminals. also you might want to check all your fuses and make are all correct size
