To check a starter relay you need to remove relay from fuse/relay panel. then with a ohm meter check for continuity between terminal 87a and 30 for continuity. and then check between terminals 87 and 30, there should be no continuity between 87 and 30. you will have continuity between 87a and 30. if this all checks out then check for resistance between 85 and 86. it should read 70-80 ohms. if this all checks out then rig up a jumper wire from positive post on battery to terminal 86 and ground terminal 85. the relay should click. if not then replace it with new relay.

My 91 Dodge Dakota will not start just turns over and over.


1991 without an ECM unit is strange unless you have an older version of the engine installed
you say it has a mass air flow sensor but no CPS( crank position sensor )so that indicates that the spark timing is generated in the pick up in the distributor body amplified by the coil and then distributed out to the plugs
no spark at the plugs will necessitate checking the rotor button is turning, the distributor cap has not track marks to ground the spark out or that the coil is in effect operational
check for 12 volts at the coil terminal while trying to start and 7.5 volts at the coil when the key is in the run position
you could have a problem ignition switch or blown fuse for the ignition circuit

You need to do an OBD2 engine control module fault code test to see if the fault is recorded in the memory of the computer control module. Autozone and others do this testing for free.

Change your fuel filter, it may have gone it's life time and is getting to dirty to let fuel flow properly. Your fuel pump to may be getting weak, if the fuel filter is dirty the pump works harder and heats up and could be over heating the fuel pump relay too. The fuel pump relay i believe is in the glove box behind a panel that say relay, there should be (3) in there and the middle one is the fuel pump's. switch then around after you change the fuel filter and if you get a chance, check your fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Good luck and hope this help's if there is a Auto Zone around you, you can ask to use the fuel pressure gauge to see what fuel pressure you have and they'll have the step by step instructions on how to do it and takes about 5 min to do and will have the fuel filter and step by step to replace that too. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
