Question about 2005 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

I have a 2005 dodge dakota 4.7ltr slt 4x4, The issue I'm having is when driving at any speed the 4x4 will engage itself. I have disconected the wire harness from the transfer case until I have the issue fixed wich seems better than ruining the transfercase or differentials as it will engage at any moment at any speed highway or not. I'm hoping it is just getting to much voltage from the fuse relay or something is this the problem or is it something more complex???

You need to pull the senser, and fus and make sure that the connectors are clean. If there is and dirty build up on the contact areas, there will be a power surge or crossfire that will make your 4X4 engage at any moment. aalso, you may think about changing up the internal sensor in the transmission. The internal sensor runs about 150.00-250.00 not including labor. If you are good at doing your own repairs, you wil save the shop labor costs.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Dodge 4x4 Doesn't Engage

It's probably the actuator located on the front axle on the passenger side. Also, check all your vacuum lines to make sure there's no broken or leaking lines.

SOURCE: No 4wd in a 1998 dodge ram 2500 w/360

check behind the right side of the front axle and look for 2 vacuum lines to see if they are still connected. also check on driver side just infront of the transfer case and check the vacuum lines to see if they are still connected. usually the problem is the vacuum lines have become caught on something and disconnected themselves.

When place in four wheel steering becomes very hard, and pulling in my driveway front tires locked up. only happens in 4 wheel. 2005 dakota


A Dodge Dakota with 4-wheel steer? Do you happen to mean 4-wheel drive?

If so, you should not operate the vehicle in 4-wheel drive when you are traveling on a hard, high-traction surface. When in 4x4, the transfer case connects the front and rear axles, and does not allow for differentiation of wheel speeds necessary when turning. This is compensated for when driving over low-traction terrain because the tires slip easier.

Basically, the jerking, bucking and locking of the truck is due to the binding. This will eventually lead to damage in the driveline. If the roadway isn't covered in snow, there is no need for the 4 wheel drive to be engaged.

There should be a "H" and "M" on the radio panel. Adjacent should be very small circles (same black color). Use a pen to push these "circles" in to adjust the time.

Dodge dakota 4x4 transmission will not engage


Check the fluid level. Low fluid levels will not allow the transmission to engage. If fluid level is full, more than likely you will have an internal problem.
