Question about 1995 Dodge Dakota
Did the fuse blow before you changed the switch/ Or did you change the ignition switch for other issues?
The termanels may not be positioned properly on the starter. Does the starter harness have a molded end or is it loose wires? The original wiring has a molded end. There is only a battery cable and a solonoid engagement wire (small one). You're issue is probably the solonoid engagement circuit shorting out. It was real common for the routing of the wiring to the starter to be to close to the exhaust manifold and melt. Or twist when the termanel is tightened on the starter shorting to the starter case. You need to first visually inspect the wiring. Start at the starter and follow it up to the Power distribution center. You should find the issue somewhere in that inspection.
Let me know how this works for you?
