It sounds like a broken wire inside the weather boot between the door and the body. The wire is touching together and is making contact when the door is in the open position, and the wire is separating when the door is closed and then it is loosing the connection.

You will need to repair the wires inside the weather boot between the drivers side door and the body, and the wire should also be soldered to make the connection solid and long lasting.

I hope that this information is of any help to you, and feel free to ask for any further advice, or assistance with any procedures..

How to remove driver's door on a 1993 dodge dakota

It will be a 2 person job. Open the door and remove the bolts for the hinges on the body panel . The door will be heavy some form of support under the door edge (Chassis stand ) will assist the partner to hold the load.. If there are wires in the door then disconnect at the connection immediately inside the body behind the kick panel cover before undoing the bolts..

Can i order a key for a 1993 dodge dakota

You can call a dodge dealer, give them the vin# and
they used to be able to cut you a key from that.
But if that method is obsolete, you can try this.
If your key was original equipment, roll the window up
and remove the door panel. Remove the clip from the
linkage rod on the door lock. Remove the spring clip
from the door lock assy. and remove the lock.
The door and ignition lock use the same key. Take
the door lock to a locksmith and they will make a
key for you. Hope this helps.

Driver's side door is locked. Linkage broken, fell inside door panel. How do I open the door?

Your best solution is to remove the door panel and operate the latch by hand. If you can't get the panel off with the door closed, you can sometimes use a straightened coat hanger with a small hook bent in the end. It's not easy but it can be done.

1993 Dodge Dakota, front left brake locks up on slippery roadways, does not pull to either side while driving?

you have a sticking caliper on that side or the oppise side is not working. since you did not mention anything about the rear brakes my guess is the rear brakes are wore out or out of adjustment, to test jack up with all four wheels off the ground and have someone gently move the wheels around one at a time and see if thel lock up at te same time as you slowly push the brakes down, if one locks up sonner than the others you have a problem with that brake system.
