Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota
Do all the other electrical items work? Is the car running when the problem occurs? Disconnecting and reconnecting the battery works for a time, so might be a loose ground somewhere. Since reconnecting the battery fixes the problem for a little while, check the ground connection on the cable that leads from the battery to the engine block. If it's loose, it may make good contact when the battery connection is manipulated, then loosens again. So trace the ground wire from the battery to the engine block and be sure the connection is tight. Also check the connection at the alternator as well as at the positve terminal of the battery.
