Question about Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

I have a 96 dakota 2.5L 5-spd that the a/c compressor is cycling on and off abnormally. I've replaced the crankshaft position sensor and the blower resistor block on the firewall after noticing those parts were corroded and replaced the connection to the blower res. block. I'm still experiencing the problem just not as bad. The throttle position sensor wires were burnt from laying on the header. Where would you suggest looking next?

Have you checked the system for correct charge? It sounds like it's low on "Freon".

01 dodge dakota 3.9. no power to coil replaced engine control relay still no power can jump across relay get power but no start and get code for no rpm

If you're getting a code for no RPM, the PCM is not receiving a signal from the crankshaft position sensor. The PCM uses the signal from the crankshaft position sensor to fire the coil/spark plugs. Check the wiring to the crankshaft position sensor and check the sensor itself.

96 Dodge Dakota V6 replace the camshaft and crankshaft positioning sensors and when it runs it runs good but it goes to acting up and backfires then if it does that it will not start for nothing

Did this problem start after these sensors were replaced or were these sensors replaced to possibly correct the problem you are experiencing? The back firing may be the result of low fuel pressure indicating the fuel pump is weak/getting bad. I would suggest having the fuel pressure tested when the vehicle is in the backfiring/no start mode. Sounds as if the fuel pump may be a problem

1997 dodge dakota how many volts does the crankshaft position sensor require

Code 320 is a problem with the tach signal which could be the crank or cam sensor.
Code 351 is a problem with the positive or negative circuit to the coil.
And code 1391 is for a problem with the ABS system which would not involve the engine running.
The sensors get a 5 volt reference from the computer and the return signal is what the computer "watches".
I would make sure you have battery voltage on the positive side of the coil and see if you have a ground reference from the computer.
You may need a shop manual to get the procedure to troubleshoot the ignition system.

Code P1391, replaced camshaft and crankshaft sensors, plugs and wires, rotor, and a couple fuses, can a loose or bad distributor be the cause for this code?

This DTC is monitored with the engine cranking or running. This DTC will be stored in the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) when the PCM FAILURE COUNTER reaches 96 failures for 2 consecutive trips.
Posiible causes are: Craknkshaft Position (CKP) sensor improperly installed, defective CKP sensor, defective distributor, defective Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor, defective PCM, defective or broken flywheel, defective connectors or defective wiring.
Proper diagnosis is recommended before replacing ANY parts.
