2001 dodge dekota will not start. When I turn the key it just clicks repeatedly. Also it is draining the battery. I checked the fuses and the alternator. What else could possibly be wrong?

Try tapping on your starter while someone turns the ignition key

    when it's clicking like that that means that your solenoid is engaging but your starter motor isnt moving that is why I said try tapping lightly with the hamer on the starter body while someone else turns ignition key

The battery is flat. Recharge, check charging voltage, and for parasitic voltage drain and replace if necessary. Don't replace the battery until you are certain you have no large amp drain from any faulty systems on the car. If your battery is around four years old or older then you may as well change it anyway however as batteries tend to start failing at that age.

Where are the radio fuses for a 2001 Dodge Dakota? When the truck sits overnight, when you go out the next morning to start it up all I get is a clicking noise from the starter. I checked the battery and...


leaving the radio on all night would not cause the battery to drain away like this providing its a good one .try disconnecting the battery overnight and see if it still drains as sometimes a battery can drain flat on its own which is caused by sulphation across the internal plates in the cells ,then if if it starts the next moring the battery is ok ,so next is to discoinnect the alternator large terminal off the alternator and try that and if it starts the following day renew the alternator as a rectifying diode is down running battery flat ,if still a proble then out comes the tester to look for a relay that has the contacts stuck together or the favourite boot light but this is a pick up truck so i would suspect the alternator

2001 dodge dakota will not start


Sounds like a bad battery, or bad/loose connection there. After the battery is replaced, or disconnected, it will need a little bit to relearn how to idle.

Try checking relays in the fuse box under the hood. If all checks out ok, check timing belt/chain.

Wipers not working,will not come out of 4x4 dodge dekota 2001


I knew that when mine did this it had too be more than a coincidence. So I started at the fuse panel and BINGO! the 20 amp fuse for the wipers (#5 on the 2001) was blown. When I replaced it everything went back to normal. Wish ALL repairs were that simple and cheap!
