Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Electrical problem My headlights, parking lights, tail lights, fog lights, interior lights, dash lights and power door locks suddenly all quit working and it says Service FWD on the information panel. I could not find any blown fuses in the cab or under the hood. The engine runs fine and everything else, radio, power windows, ac, blower, stop lights, turn signals all work.

It turned out that disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it reset the control module and fixed the problem.

Electrical problems with 2002 dodge dakota 4x4 quad cab 3.9v6


The Central Timer Module (CTM, called BCM on some vehicles) supports or controls:
Automatic door lock/central locking
Battery protection
Chimes
Exterior lights (park lamps, fog lamps, headlamps)
Interior lights
Intermittent wiper control
Power lock control
Remote keyless entry (RKE)
Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS)
Remote radio control (from steering wheel)

It covers all the problems you described except the 4WD controls. I suspect you may want to have the CTM checked, or do like I did and just replace it (used about $75-$100 on eBay). Make sure you get the part number on yours and match the number portion (not necessarily the two letter suffix) EXACTLY.
It should be located behind the kick panel to the left of the driver's feet (that's where it is on my 2003 Dakota), but may be to the right of the glove box (have to remove the glove box to get to it).

99 gmc denali dash light, parking lights, tail lights, and dash light dont work. Interior lights, brake lights, blinkers, headlights work Turning on the headlight switch blows number 15 drl-fog fuse...


You have a short to ground somewhere in the drl-fog lamp circuit. Check for obvious wiring connector or wiring to drl & fog lamps. check wiring for pinched or broken wires coming from sockets. If you don't find problem, you can trace wiring from lamps to main harnesses and hopefully find source of short.
hope this helps.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

Headlights and door locks not working


Fuse is probably blown out. Replace fuses for respective functions. Find the fuse box: might be in engine near battery or below steering wheel. open top and check for blown fuses. Try replacing if blown fuses are found. If all fuses are OK then it is very unlikely that all the bulbs are blown.

89 Thunderbird, no tail lights


Having the same issue somewhat. Tail lights and dash lights quit. Checked the headlight switch wiring harness by looping all other prong holes back to the main power and they all work, so mine must be the switch. Having a real hard time finding a switch that matches the old one, even though they say it is a replacement. I paid the $25 at www.alldatadiy.com and they have quite a few wiring diagrams for the car.

Electrical problem


I just had the same issues. No headlights, interior lights, power door locks, radio controls on steering wheel, or dash lights. Pulled every fuse in cab and under hood, not a one was bad. I disconnected the battery terminals for a few minutes. When I reconnected them every thing was working.
