Put a new starter on my 2006 Dodge Dakota and it still won't start, any suggestions?


By still won't start you mean that when you turn the key to start nothing happens , starter doesn't spin or no clicking sounds etc... ? Do a voltage drop test on the starter electrical circuit . Test cables an connections . Also check the control side (starter relay ) ! Find a wiring diagram of the starter system at www.bbbind.com .

1996 Dodge Dakota Sport (V8) Battery is fully charged but when turn key just get a click, no starter.


Have you tried to bypass starter and see if the engine turns over ? Might also want to check if there is power to the starter. If you have power to the starter and bypass it and it does not turn over, you may have a bad starter.
Do you have a fuel or starter relay ? If yes, check it.

I have 2006 dodge charger Rt. I brought new battery an starter an have alternator rebuilt an my car still wont crank


There should be power o the small terminal of the stater anytime the key is in the crank position. I would start with checking that. If there is no power you will need to trace that circuit back.

That wire gets power from the starter relay and the relay gets power from fuse 20 in the TIPM (underhood fuse box). The starter relay control side starts at the ignition switch. The pink with dark green wire should have power with the key in the crank position. That power goes to fuse #10 in the TIPM. it then goes to the starter relay. the starter relay is grounded by the PCM.

Give that a whirl.

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.

Got a 92 dodge Dakota i have problems starting it, when i try to turn the truck on it wont fire over but if i leave the key to the run position it takes about 10 minutes before i can hear the relay start...


Check the Auto Shutdown Relay (ASD) in engine power distribution box (left inner fender-under hood)
You should hear fuel pump for 15 sec after you turn on key

2006 Dodge Dakota will not start. Battery is good all acc. work, but. nothing when key is turned. (Started twice this morning and then stalled, now nothing)


just a guess but it might be the starter solinoid.? try tapping the solinoid with a hammer and see if it will crank over.

88 dodge dakota, draining power, relay switch, coil...


You about have to have a bad alternator or battery. What does your amp gauge say when you are driving down the road and have your lights on? Does it show that the battery is taking a heavy charge? Did you put a ohm meter set to DC current on your battery when it is running to see if the alternator is putting out?
