Sorry but the 96' is only for the 96'. No other matches it or is compatible to fit.

Can 2001 dodge Dakota doors fit on a 1996 dodge Dakota?

No. 1996 was the last of the first generation Dakotas. 2001 is a second generation model, and the body style is quite different.

97 dodge dakota driver door sag, repair.

Likely nothing to adjust.
With the door open, see if the door can be lifted up and down while looking at the hinges. If there is play, the door hinge pins/bushings are worn out, and on some vehicles, the hinges are not serviceable, and replacement will be needed. G/L

Interior light stay on intermitant

Check for moisture under the interior carpeting.
I have see it cause this when the wiring gets wet on the connections from the door switches. Other wise you are going to have to get a meter and check all the wiring to each door and the lamp switch.
