    Only 15 amp fuse in the underhood fuse box is for lights. I was told there was a connection between cigarette lighter and OBD however can't find the fuse.

Yes there is a fuse for the obd system it is a 15 amp fuse that is connected to the cigarette lighter. I know this sounds wierd but that is the fuse. If you check in the underhood fuse block that is where it is generally located on all makes and models.

    Have you checked the under dash fuse box to see if it is in there. Going to be mounted on the driver side.

I'm having a starting problem which I believe is PATS security system related. engine cranks fine crank sensor is ok.

What make , model and year vehicle ? You mention PATS , that's ford , mercury , lincoln . Light flashing when cranking the vehicle ,anti-theft problem . Nothing you can do , unless you have a factory scan tool . Your best bet ,dealer . Disconnecting the battery isn't going to do anything . Need to have vehicle checked for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes , do diagnostic's for the code . Replace or fix what ever the problem is . If a module needs to be replace , key's need to be programmed . Dealer or mobile lock smith that is licensed ! Don't know what your trying to say here OBD reading protocol OSD 9141 AND KEYWORD:2000 ,these have nothing to do with PATS -

I have a 2001 Dodge Durango reading error codes P1728, P1726, P1787, P1775, and P1727 in that order. Does anyone know what these are and how to go about fixing them?

Most people will eventually learn how to get the codes

You use Google & Type: OBD & your codes

OBD P1728

Sometimes you need a vehicle or engine or year

If your looking for 1995 & earlier, you type OBD 1
or on something like a GM,just GM Codes or GM OBD1
& the code

Codes do not tell you what is wrong or what to do

Codes direct you to the system with the fault
Then you component test to find a problem

Without decades of knowledge & professional tools,
your not working on your own vehicles,except for the
mechanical parts

My check engine light is on, why?

You are probably wondering because your car is running fine. The check engine light system was designed primarily to fight excessive emissions. However, most problems that cause high emissions are bad. So the light acts as an early warning device for trouble brewing. You are going to pay in higher gas bills or engine parts eventually. The light is letting you know that there is a problem in a system or that a system monitoring sensor is faulty. The car´s computer has set a Diagnostic Trouble Code or ¨DTC¨ in its memory and that code is waiting to be read out by a code reader. Most major auto parts stores will read out your codes for free. With the code, you can get a definition of what is wrong.

Check engine light is on and cant find the problem

Need to take your vehicle somewhere and have the codes read for an OBD I system and that should reveal your check engine light problem and the possible source of what is wrong with your truck. You could try Autozone, but more than likely their scanners usually only read OBD II systems, meaning, cars after 1996. Give them a shot if their in your area.

it could be a MULTITUDE of problems - for a faulty sensor - to a bad ABS module ETCETC.

Take the vehicle to any national parts chain and have them read the OBD codes.

This will tell you exactly wht is going on and causing the light.

U need to find out why the system won't self test with the scanner, u have been to a dealer or just some outside shop? Also check the cigar lighter/power point fuse, if it is blown out the system will not self test, the fuse is in the inside fuse box behind the panel to the left of the steering wheel.
