Need help replacing steering column in 1988 dodge dekota

Yes you can replace the tilt column with a straight standard column on an 88 Jeep Wranger, it is a simple bolt in swap. Make sure you don't pinch any of the wires while swapping and it cause a bunch of headaches.

Steering column is very loose; so do I replace it or can it be repaired without removing it? Where can I see the photos or diagrams of the steering column?

Would help to know what column. Is it the old round column???
Is it tilt and is it moving about where it tilts?
If yes, the column can stay in the vehicle. You will need some specific tools to do this. Amoung other tools you need, a steering wheel puller, Lock plate tool, possiby male torx bits/drivers (depending on year), for certain torx female socket and a tilt pin removal tool.

And it is somewhat a complex job for someone that has not done it before.

What are the wiring colors for the headlight switch on a 2000 dodge dakota? My problem is my highbeams work but my low beams only work with the tilt up. I took the column all apart and if i move the...

One wire provides power for both high- and low-beams from the light switch to the multifunction switch (on the steering column), and it is a light green wire. From the multifunction switch to the low beam lamps is a violet wire with white tracer, and to the high beams is a red wire with an orange tracer.

How do i remove the steering column cover to get at the ignition tumbler on a 1993 dodge dakota

CAUTION Disconnect and isolate the negative (ground) battery cable. This will disable the air bag system. Failure to disconnect the battery could result in accidental deployment and possible personal injury. Allow the system capacitor to discharge for two minutes then begin air bag system component removal. To install:
  1. Engage the electrical connectors to the ignition switch and make sure the switch locking tabs are fully seated.
  2. Before attaching the ignition switch to a tilt steering column, the transmission shifter must be in the PARK position. Also the park lock dowel pin and the column lock flag must be properly indexed before installing the switch as follows:
    1. Place the transmission shifter in the PARK position
    2. Place the ignition switch in the LOCK position. The switch is in the lock position when the column lock flag is parallel to the ignition switch terminals.
    3. Position the ignition switch park lock dowel pin so it will engage the steering column park lock slider linkage.
    4. Apply a light coating of grease to the column lock flag and the park lock dowel pin.
  3. Place the ignition switch against the lock housing opening on the steering column. Ensure that the ignition switch park lock dowel pin enters the slot in the park lock slider linkage in the steering column.
  4. Install the retaining bracket and ignition switch mounting screws, then tighten the screws to 22-30 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
  5. If the vehicle is equipped with a tilt steering column, install the tilt lever.
  6. With the key cylinder and the ignition switch in the LOCK position, insert the key cylinder into the ignition switch until it bottoms.
  7. Insert the ignition key into the lock cylinder. While pushing the key cylinder in toward the ignition switch, rotate the ignition key until the end of travel.
  8. Install the retaining screw into the bracket and lock cylinder. Tighten the screw to 22-30 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
  9. Install the steering column covers, then the tilt lever, if equipped.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.
  11. Check for proper operation.

Replace Blinker arm on 1987 Dodge Dakota

Sorry, when mine went out last year it was IMPOSSIBLE (2 Dodge dealerships, 2 different auto parts chains, and 3 repair shops) to find a replacement.

Had to replace the entire steering column from a junkyard.

Good luck!
