My 1997 dodge Dakota 4x4 3.9 v6 auto pick-up truck will crank over but wont start. I have power going to the computer and from the computer but no dash lights or power anywhere else any ideas on what it...
This is a new problem that is being discovered on many makes of vehicles. When you say NO dash lights, the computer sends everything through the dash i.e., by lighting oil, brake, ABS, traction control, and most important which would be yes the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. It has been found by a couple top notch mechanics that through vibration the solder joints on the dash mother board crack. The boards can be purchased for a very expensive price, or repaired with a little patience and time. You would have to remove the dash cluster, disassemble the dash cluster , and inspect the solder joints, go through them one by one with a magnifying glass , and re-solder each one carefully. The reason I come to this conclusion is that if you had dash lights, your CHECK ENGINE LIGHT would have shown you your problem , for EXAMPLE: a bad sensor. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.
