    The crankshaft sensor was the problem.The reason there was no engine codes or communication was the sensor had shorted to ground causing a complete lock out of the pcm.This shut everything down no fuel no spark no gauges and no engine light.This can happen on any three wire sensor with a JTEC pcm used in jeeps and dodges from 96 to02

I would say your truck is trying to relate the code number to you to tell you what is wrong with the truck.
Count the flashes, there will be a slight pause, then more flashes. 1,2,3......1,2,3,4.......
Have someone with an OBD II reader plug into your truck.
They will probably find a code p0340
This is telling you you cam sensor needs to be replaced.
You can also turn you ignition key on-off, on-off in 5 seconds and the display will also flash.
Please let me know what you find.

I have a dodge 2001 Dakota 3.9 and it does not get good gas mileage. i think it needs a tune up, i check the motor in the dark and notice a little spark from a spark plug wire.

i recommend to replace the spark plugs and the spark plug wires (it is always recommended to replace both at the same time) it is also a good idea to replace the air filter and fuel filter if this hasnt been done long time or if you do a lot of driving and you have done it in a while i still recommend to do so and it is a good idea at this time of the year to change the oil if it hasnt been done w/i the last 3 months or 3,000 miles which ever is first. this will fix that spark problem and improve gas mileage.

1998 dodge dakota 4x4 5spd 3.9l-cfank but wont

Do you have spark?
Do you have fuel?
Which are you missing?
TIP.A quick check for spark.........give it a spray of starting fluid....if it've got spark.
No spark usually means......a bad coil or ignition module on the 3.9.
No fuel is usually caused by a bad fuel pump.
