Question about 2004 Dodge Dakota

Slow start 2004 dodge dakota v8

After cool down engine turns over for 5 to 6 seconds before starting. I have a p0038 OBD II code oxygen sensor would this cause the problem or maybe needs spark plugs and coil assemblies replaced? Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

P0038 typically indicates O2 sensor failure or possible grounding out if the cabling to it has failed. Start with that as it is easier to replace than all the plugs/coils etc. Reset the code and cross your fingers.

Where is the camshaft position sensor on a 1998 Dodge Dakota 5.2L


The camshaft position sensor is located on the distributor for all engines designed for the 1998 Dodge Dakota. Accessing the sensor requires removing the distributor cap and the distributor rotor. The camshaft sensor pigtail comes through the front of the distributor and connects to the engine wiring harness above the intake manifold.

Check engine light code 499 on a dodge dakota v8 quad cab


I think that's one of the o2 sensor. But try unhooking ur battery terminals for five to ten minutes and see if that doesn't reset it.

My 1998 dakota would die for no reason when trying to restart i would smell gas after a 2 or 4 tries it would start and run fine. then it would start to die and i would work the gas petal and it would back...


YEAH... I TRIED ALL that TOO...

Hello Tim Carson,

Finally I got codes read... and it said the OXYGEN SENSORS were complaining... OBD... DTC
(on-board-diagnostic... DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES)

So... of course I changed the... OXYGEN SENSORS.

The "NEW" OXYGEN SENSORS complained just as well...

I have subsequently learned the "SENSORS" are
just doing their job...

In my case reporting on a collapsed catalytic converter.
(muffler is actually a MORE common blockage).

A little hunting around... like Auto-Zone ... Napa auto...
Pep-boys... O'Reilly Auto Parts... even MIDAS might
yield FREE READINGs... (check around).

Just remember to wear your best SALES RESISTANCE...

and look up you prices on ROCKAUTO...

P1258 CODE


Trouble Code: P1258 (4.6L V8 VIN 9 Auto)
Engine Metal Over-Temperature Protection
Number of Trips to Set Code: 1
OBD II Monitor Type: CCM Details
Indicators: MIL Details
Trouble Code Conditions:
DTC P0117, P0118 and P0125 not set, Engine started; and the PCM detected the ECT sensor indicated more than 270ºF for 10 seconds. The PCM uses the ECT sensor to detect if the engine is running too hot (when the ECT sensor is over 268ºF). If the engine is overheated, DTC P1258 will set. The PCM will disable 2 groups of four cylinders by turning off the fuel injectors. By switching between the two groups of cylinders, the PCM is able to reduce the temperature of the coolant and lower the temperature.

Possible Causes:
  • Engine cooling system problem (test the cooling fan operation)
  • Engine coolant level is low or the mixture is not correct
  • ECT sensor is out-of-calibration or "skewed"

I have a 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad cab SLT 4x4 that won't start. The engine will turn over but, as soon as I release the key, it shuts off. The ABS and BRAKE dash lights stay on.


It could be a cam or crank sensor. Have someone plug a OBD II reader in and pull all the codes.
That will give you some idea.
Please let me know what you find.

Diagnostic trouble codes P0125,P0601


P0125 OBD-II Trouble Code
Technical Description

Insufficient Coolant Temperature For Closed Loop Fuel Control
What does that mean?

This means that the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor indicates that the engine has not reached the required temperature level to enter closed-loop operation within a specified amount of time after starting the engine.

P0601 OBD-II Trouble Code
Technical Description

Internal Control Module Memory Check Sum Error
What does that mean?

Basically that means that there is an interal fault in the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). There have been many reported PCM failures on Chrysler/Dodge products although it is possible for this to happen on any vehicle. In Dodge/Chrysler products, a P0601 trouble code means that a serial communication failed inside the computer at least 6 times.

Bank 1 sensor 2. Oxygen sensor heater control circuit high. You can try disconnecting at connector to sensor, clean connection good, disconnect battery for a minute or so & retry. If it comes back, I'd look at replacing heater solenoid.
