Ok, check the battery post wires(positive&negative). make sure they are screwed tightly on there respective post. make sure that the starter wire is secure and screwed on tightly as well.

I would also test the starter by jumping the device. if the starter dose not respond to a proper jump, rebuild or replace the faulty starter. test the solenoid as well.

Normally, when you cant get a crank or a click, this will lead to some kind of stater issue or and combination of a bad wiring situation and bad starter as well.

Sounds like your starter is dead.  Take the starter to a local auto parts store and they will test it for you.  I would be that is your problem and you will just have to purchase another one and install.  Install shouldn't be too hard.  Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

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:

My dodge dakota truck will not start. It has power we tried to pop the clutch too.


do you mean the truck won`t start and run or do you mean it won`t turn over with the key.if it won`t turn over with the key the you may have a starter problem.if you mean won`t start then it could be the fuel pump not working.with someone cranking the motor you should hear the fuel pump running with the gas cap off and listening at the filler neck.or hear it running listening under the truck at the gas tank.if you don`t hear it then you can hit the tack sharply with your hand or a rubber hammer,it hear the pump start to run then the fuel pump needs replacing.if not check the fuses under the dash and under the hood.if they are good then it may be the pump relay in the relay box under the hood and it should be marked on the box or lid.
