Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
Good Evening, As long as you have good power and ground to the starter you should be fine, however what I would suggest first is pulling the starter relay and jumping 30 and 87 and see if the starter kicks over. If it does it means your trigger wire from the relay is good (might have to have the key on for the power to be on to the one leg but i do not believe so). If that works then I would suspect a ignition switch I have seen this happen before, one way to see is if you take your test light to where the relay is and take it out and one leg either 85 or 86 is going to be your switching from the key. If neither switches either power or ground when the switch is moved to the start position I would lean towards the ignition switch. Do the first test and go from there. Let me know if you need any more help.
