Question about Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

I have a 1989 Dodge Dakota Pickup , I had to remove the bed so that I could do some gas line repairs and now I only have my headlights that work . I have no dash lights ,parking lights, backup lights ,or turn signals . I have checked all the fuses under the dash and they are all good . Is there any more fuses that I can check or does any one know why I might be having this certain problem ?

Under the hood on the driver side on the firewall there is the main wire harness it has a rubber boot over the plug. Take the tape off from it and pull the rubber boot back look at the bottom left wire should be red and be a pretty good size wire. That wire will get acid on it just like the battery and sometimes mess the hold plug up. Depending if your truck has power windows or any other etc. there are up to 60 wire on that plug. I had to get another plug and rewire all 60 wires on mine since the acid damaged my plug Dodge has this problem on all trucks from 88 to 00

SOURCE: 1995 Dodge Dakota headlight problems

I will assume you have tested the bulbs, if so replace the head light switch, make sure the connector is not melted or burnt, if it is you will need to buy a kit from Dodge and repair the wiring harness.

SOURCE: Park/Tail lights not working. Brake/signals are

Before going ahead and spending money on a new module, test it first. The module is located under the steering column. You'll find a Brown wire on one of the connectors (i just looked at a wire diagram). Do no disconnect anything. Back probe the brown wire, which is the power feed to your park lights. With the lights off, there should be 0 volts on you voltmeter. Turn the park lamps on, There should be 12V. If there is not 12V, disconnect the connector and try to check voltage at the pin that feeds to the brown wire, if still not 12V, replace the module. If you do get 12V, then module is ok, find where the 12v is being dropped before making it to the lamps.

There is a fuse you may have more then one fuse box look under the hood & under the dash. Most of the time Chrysler will just put a number next to the fuses. Go to your owners manual & see what number is your head light fuse. If you still can't find the right fuse take your test light & check both side of each fuse if one side lights up & one side does not replace it with the same size fuse.

How to remove the gas tank on a 1990 dodge dakota, i can not find how to loosen straps


The easiest way to work on the fuel tank is to take out the 8 bolts that hold the bed to the frame, they are bolted from underneath. Unplug the tail lights and the filler neck and just lift the bed off and sit aside. You can now sit on the rear tire and work on the fuel pump. Much easier than having to drop the tank.

Before you just throw off the 8 bed bolts, first you have to disconnect battery cables, tail lamp wires, the exhaust support hangar, fuel vent hoses, spare tire winch, then the hold down bolts.

Headlight lamp switch wires


as there are a number of wires, and you dont want to short out something else.you shoul probably go to mitchell online and pay a small amount to get access to there repair info for your truck.you could also go to your library if you need to get it for free,it would take someone a lot of time to download this picture and info.if you have no headlights it could also be the combinsation switch behind the steering wheel, the dimmer switch, play with the dimmer switch a little to see if the lights come on, if so remove the plastic cover behind the steering wheel and remove teh two small scews that hold the switch on to replace it.
