Question about 1999 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Dakota which applied Check Engine, Brake warning and ABS Warning. The truck has only 50K miles on it. The factory manual describes diagnostic code 0420 which is an emmision problem. The UBS II shows the same code. Any ideas? The truck is sluggish when I drive it like the brakes are being applied.

Air flow meter or air filter restriction is causing the computer to lean out the mixture too far.

I have a '99 dodge grand caravan se, while in park the abs light came on, the battery light came on, and the check engine light has been on,


Looks like you have a few issues there.

1. The battery warning. This is indicative of a weak battery and if your battery is 3 years old or more I would replace it.

2. If you have a weak battery this can trigger other warning lights in the vehicle, typically the ABS warning but sometimes other warning lights as well depending on the electronic features in the car. If you replace the battery this should correct the battery warning and most likely the ABS warning if both of these warnings appeared at the same time.
Normally, once the ABS warning is displayed the anti lock braking system(ABS) will be shut down. Whilst your braking will be normal, if you brake too hard and lock up your wheels on a slippery road there is no ABS assist to prevent the brake lock up which you have when the system is working.

3. If the alternator on the engine is not generating sufficient power and thus not charging the battery at all, or very little, you will likely get a battery warning light. I don't know if your 1999 vehicle has a warning light to indicate a faulty alternator or not.

4. Check Engine Light.
You suggested the CE warning has been showing up for a few days and before the battery and ABS warnings popped up.
The CE warning can be caused by dozens of different engine issues.
The vehicle needs to be scanned with the appropriate scan tool to see what fault codes the onboard computer is generating because if you have a CE warning light there will be fault codes generated 99% of the time.

Once these fault codes have been pulled the mechanic can start to diagnose the cause of the problem or problems. Each engine fault code your car's computer is generating can be caused by different types of problems so it is important that they diagnose the issues correctly. Otherwise your Check Engine light will remain on as long as the causes are not identified and fixed.

My 55 Kia sedona my red brake warning light comes on after a few miles and stays on until i turn off engine. Also comes on injunction with my amber ABS warning light


First I would check the brake fluid level to make sure there is enough in it.Most of all It seems you have a major problem with the the ABS system which turns on the brake light as well as the ABS light.Chances are you have a couple of wheel sensors that have gone bad.Do you hear a wrrrrrr sound that increases and decreases as you go faster and slower while your driving?

ABS and ASC warning lights stay on 2000 530d


Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the car

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!
