The problem has to be in the headlamp switch.check the scroll adjuster for the dashlights as well,it may be turned down all the way.

I have a 2005 Dodge Dakota V8 4x4 when key is in start position gauges and radio will not work, in accessory position they work and then will not shut off when trying to turn off.


This may sound crazy but, I believe they feed through the cluster. I have had durangos and grand cherokees with problems like this. The durango was an 04 and the dome lights would not shut off. The grand cherokee was a radio that would not shut off. It was in the Insterment Cluster both times. I have not seen this problem with a dakota however. I am betting the same manufactor makes all of their clusters.

Gauges won't work on a 1987 dodge dakota


Most cars have a voltage regulator behind the dashboard that supplies a stable voltage for the gauges. Have a look, if you follow the wires from the gauges you will probably find one wire from each gauge going to a small regulator box. If you cant get a new one an electronic technician can build one for you.

Had another fuel pump installed. now fuel gauge does not work. low fuel light stays on. whats wrong?


DODGE DAKOTA HAD 3 DIFFERENT ENGINES BACK IN 92. ENGINES ARE 2.5 - 3.9 - 5.2 YOU COULD HAVE THE WRONG FUEL PUMP INSTALL.WHICH WILL MAKE ELECTRICAL HOOK UP DIFFERENT.THAT WILL CAUSE FUEL GAUGE NOT TO WORK.

This is likely:

- your alternator with either a loose/shorted connection or bad ground or,

- your voltage regulator is malfunctioning (which is probably in the alternator) or,

- your alternaotr is well connected but is malfunctioning.

Cranks but wont start


Check your ignition module. If that is not it, I recommend checking your ignition switch i.e. the thing you insert you key into when you start. There is a possibility that your ignition switch is bad.
