Check to see if you have spark.if not check the crank sensor.most likely thats the problem.also a common problem is harmonic balancer slips off inner pulley,losing crank signal.

Why does my 97 dodge dakota not start?


Sounds like you have a parasitic draw. Have a friend measure voltage at your battery and pull your fuses one at a time. When the voltage spikes you found the circuit that is shorted. If you still dont find it connect an amp clamp to your alternator output wire with the vehicle off, if current is flowing you have a faulty rectifier bridge in your alternator and you need a new 1.

Sounds like a bad battery, or bad/loose connection there. After the battery is replaced, or disconnected, it will need a little bit to relearn how to idle.
