97 dodge dakota keeps burning out starters


Excessive current going thru the starter is the culprit. Something, is causing too much drag on the motor, it spins slower, uses more juice, and burns up. If you cannot locate the source of the friction, you might want to look into a heavy duty starter that can withstand the rigors better without burning out.

97 dodge Dakota sometimes when starting I hear a click then nothing if I turn the key again it starts


The starter solenoid is going bad. Check for voltage at the solenoid when u first start it and if u have voltage and it clicks, replace entire starter

Why does my 97 dodge dakota not start?


Sounds like you have a parasitic draw. Have a friend measure voltage at your battery and pull your fuses one at a time. When the voltage spikes you found the circuit that is shorted. If you still dont find it connect an amp clamp to your alternator output wire with the vehicle off, if current is flowing you have a faulty rectifier bridge in your alternator and you need a new 1.
