    Have you had any problems with your water pump leaking lately? The reason I ask this is because a lot of times the water pump will leak onto the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS) and over time is will rust out. Without a CPS signal, your computer doesn't know where a timing reference is and it won't spark.


    Have you pulled any codes from the computer? (Autozone will do this for free). Might indicate a failed sensor.


    When you turn the key to start, do you hear the fuel pump prime and then stop?


    What do you mean "no gauges"? When you turn the key on, does your gas gauge indicate the proper level of gas in the tank.

    Have you checked for a broken timing belt?  When you crank does the engine sound like it is "free-wheelin"?  In other words, there is no cranking resistance being felt or heard.

Well I was originally thinking maybe the mega-fuse in the engine compartment since you have so many things not working.  Then considered the computer.  You may want to consider checking these out.
I went to MSN auto for your vehicle and under reliability, you can see that one of the engine problems is the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS) and it notes that failure of the sensor will keep the vehicle from starting.  This shouldn't affect your gauges, but you might have the sensor checked out.  Hope this helps.

My 2000 dodge dakota wont start. I replaced the battery and still wont start. The lights are strong and it turns but wont start. What could be wrong?


Two basics; fuel supply and ignition. Neither of these are difficult to check but for in-hand assistance, a service manual is a good investment and we like Haynes:

Truck wont start


1.) spray engine starting fluid into air intake ---remove air filter if necessary.
2.) if ignition only on this spray, then seek bad fuel supply problem.
3.) if no ignition, check for spark.
