I think your truck is pretty much the same as mine. Not alot to it. You should have 2 or 4 bolts that hold radiator in place, maybe a few bolts that hold fan shroud in place. To start you'll open hood, have to drain water out of radiator using a petcock, a drain valve at bottom of radiator. Loosen hose clamps on upper and lower radiator hose clamps. Once water is drained you'll have to remove the ends of the two hoses from radiator. The hoses may be kinda welded in place from rust so you may have to twist the ends back and forth until they loosen up. ( When you reinstall hoses, put a thin layer of any kind of grease on the inside of the ends so they can be turned easier. Remove bolts holding fan shroud in place and move it however you have to to give you access to lift radiator up ward and out of engine area. Remove bolts holding radiator and with some wiggling and guiding it should be able to lift it out. It might be tight. If you get a manual at Autozone it should give you better descriptions. Good luck. Please rate this. Thanks

Depends on if your dakota has a factory alarm or not. if it does then i dont think you can because it would trigger the alarm and you wont be able to start the truck. If not then it may be as simple as pulling a fuse. Search the web for a fuse chart and see what you find.
