Question about 1995 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Electrical problems I installed a multiple outlet power source by tying it into the fusebox. Since then, I've developed the following problems. First the ABS and brake warning lights came on. Then, the horn and tach fuse blew. I replaced the fuse but neither one works. (The fuse has not blown again.)Then, the radio quit working. The clock and station indicator still operate, but at full volume, I can only hear a very staticy, very low volume station on one speaker in the door.

I suggest you remove whatever you installed. Obviously your vehicle does not like it being there. If everything returns to normal, then that problem is solved. (otherwise you will need to determine what was damaged) If you need the power source, you can create a new circuit by attaching to the battery itself and using a low draw.switched relay attached to the accessory side of the ignition switch to turn it on and off. It is possible that the problem is unrelated, but since it began when you made the mod, that's where I would look first.

Need to replace 15 amp breaker


You best use the proper amperage fuse in the system, but you can probably get away with a 20amp in emergencies. I wouldn't be connecting too many chargers and whatnot to this one power source however, as you may overload the present wiring and cause damage to it.At best you might consider installing a secondary power supply socket. These are very inexpensive and can handle multiple outputs.

2000-2003 Windstar
2004-2007 Freestar MERCURY: 2000-2005 Sable
2004-2007 Monterey
This article supersedes TSB 05-14-5 to update the Service Procedure and vehicle model years. ISSUE: Some 2000-2007 Taurus, 2000-2005 Sable, 2000-2003 Windstar, and 2004-2007 Freestar/Monterey vehicles, equipped with a 4F50N, AX4N, or AX4S transaxle, may exhibit an erratic fluid level reading on the transaxle dipstick and possible leaks around the filler tube and grommet. The condition may be due to a restricted transaxle vent.
ACTION: Repair the transaxle vent restriction by replacing the transaxle vent with a 90° vent stem, small hose clamp, two (2) tie raps, and 24" (61 cm) of 5/16" (8 mm) vacuum hose. The 5/16" (8 mm) vacuum hose will be routed from the 90° vent on the transaxle back to the cowl area, next to the brake master cylinder and tie rapped in place with the end of the hose facing down. Refer to the following Service Procedures.
NOTE: ON WINDSTAR, FREESTAR AND MONTEREY SEAL THE COWL PANEL GRILLE (COWL TOP VENT PANEL) AREA, SEE TSB 06-14-10. NOTE: LEAKS MAY BE MISDIAGNOSED AS COMING FROM THE PAN GASKET. ALWAYS FOLLOW WORKSHOP MANUAL, SECTION 307-01 TO LOCATE THE SOURCE OF A LEAK, AND LEAK CHECK WITH BLACK LIGHT AND DYE. SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Disconnect the mass air flow (MAF) sensor electrical connector.
  2. Disconnect the crankcase vent tube(s) from the air cleaner outlet pipe.
  3. Loosen the clamp and disconnect the air cleaner outlet pipe from the throttle body.
  4. Release the air cleaner housing clamp(s).
  5. Separate the air cleaner cover from the air cleaner tray.
  6. Windstar, Freestar and Monterey only: Remove cowl panel grille by following the procedure in TSB 06-14-10.
  7. Disconnect the shift cable if located over the top of the vent.
  8. Remove the vent, pull straight up on the vent with locking pliers, or carefully pry the vent from the transaxle case.
  9. Install the replacement 90° vent stem.
    • Windstar, Freestar, Monterey, Taurus, and Sable with column shifter - Must face to the right rear of the vehicle with the flat edge of vent base parallel to the chain cover boss (Figure 1)

Have 2005 trailblazer check engine light on and code they gave me is P0410. secondary air injection sytem. where is this located


If you have a "Air pump installed on your TB then you need to replace pump and or check to make sure that the hose's are all connect to it prior to replacing the pump which is dependisng on which engine you have on the lower left side (passenger)
Models Affected
1999-2003 Chevrolet Blazer, S10
1999-2001 GMC Jimmy
1999-2003 GMC Sonoma
1999-2001 Oldsmobile Bravada
All with 2.2L or 4.3L Engine (VINs 4, H, 5, W -- RPOs LN2, L43, L35)
Condition
Some owners may comment on the check engine light being illuminated. Upon
investigation, the technician may find a DTC P0410 indicating there is a concern in the
secondary air injection system.
Cause
This concern may be attributed to water that may have collected in the AIR pump or the
vent solenoid and frozen or corroded the pump.
Correction
Replace the AIR pump and install a new inlet hose and solenoid tube assembly using
the following procedure:
1. Prep vehicle.
2. Raise vehicle on hoist.
3. Remove shield covering AIR pump.
4. Remove hose and vacuum lines from pump and solenoid.
5. Remove AIR pump inlet hose. Do not re-use.
6. Disconnect electrical connectors from pump and solenoid.
7. Remove pump mounting bolts and pump.
8. Transfer isolators from the old pump to the new pump.
9. Install new AIR pump and bolts to vehicle. Tighten the bolts to 17N·m (12.5 lb ft).
10. Route new hose assembly up between engine and fender. It should come up near
the area between the battery and the coolant bottle.
11. Connect new inlet hose to pump inlet.
12. Connect old outlet hose to pump outlet.
13. Connect electrical connector to pump.
14. Connect electrical connector for solenoid to connector on the new hose assembly.
15. Connect the hose with the white nipple to the vacuum source hose.
16. Connect the remaining hose to the shut off valve.
17. Install shield covering AIR pump.
18. Lower vehicle.
19. Remove coolant reservoir nut nearest the battery.
20. Route new hose assembly between the battery and the coolant reservoir with the solenoid on top.
21. Install the solenoid bracket onto the coolant reservoir stud and reinstall the nut
back into the vehicle.
22. Use a wire tie to keep the new hose assembly away from the engine. On four
cylinder engines, tie to the AIR outlet hose. On six cylinder engines, tie to an
available hole in the radiator fan shroud.
