Question about Dodge Dakota

2 Answers

2002 dakota, i had the whole dash out to fix the condensate line. Now i have a "no bus" signal on the odometer and only the oil pressure gauge registers slightly. I have a hard time believing i missed a connection. All the pins on the gauge cluster are good and all gauges will zero themselves when u plug them in. Also a code scanner will read all parameters and i have a 5v reference at the tps. Hope you can help

Sounds like you either missed a reconnection on a plug or a plug didn't get seated. Or one may have come loosed while moving the dash around. I suggest pulling the dash panel loose enough to recheck all the connections. Also you may have simply blown a fuse. check your owner's manual and it'll tell you which is the fuse for the instrument cluster. pull the fuse to inspect, replace as needed.

All gauges are bouncing all over when key is on or driving. odometer and trip meter blink also.the weird thing is when i click the overdrive button off all gauges drop to bottom no bounce


run the fault codes and check for a problem vehicle speed sensor
(VSS)
it drives the speedo and odometer and is affected by the OD change

Oil pressure unit on a 2001 dodge dakota v8 4.7 replaced the oil pressure unit and the oil gauge is still reading low oil in the motor is high with the dip stick. Tried to reset the sensor by disconnecting...


Your talking about low oil pressure, not level, correct? Hope you can read diagram. The top wire, oil pressure sensor should be voltage and bottom wire is ground. Use digital multimeter on low voltage setting to check. The sensor sends signal to pcm, on the right in diagram, the dashed lines. Then the pcm sends data to instrument cluster on buss circuit.
I agree with other person, it could be low oil pressure and everything else is working correctly.

Dakota - 2001, started, died and won't start. all dash indicators light as normal except odometer says "No Bus."


Hi, if odometer say no bus you are loosing your bus signal some were ,with out a bus signal the car not going to run the bus signal runs to every module on your truck. This could be as easy as a blow en fuse to a wire shorted out or a bad module . Depends on your know how around cars . If your not sure you should take to local shop or dealer. If i can help you further just re post.
Thanks dodge tec

Fuses


Yes there are more fuses. Drivers side underneath the dash or at your feet, look up to the wall and you'll see mostly blue fuses for turn signals fog lights and stuff like that.
