Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
We thought it was the starter because it just did click click click, but I was told that the bolt holding the wire from the battery to the cylinod had melted off. the is a (hot ground?) some where I was told Is this possible? Patricia
So was it the bolt melted off or the wire had melted
its pretty heavy gauge wire so if its that then I would be checking the recalls from dodge and see if there was a issue with the wiring for that model.
but it is possible by all means if you take the temp under the hood it gets quite hot expessually this time of year.
well if thats the issue then its cheaper then a new starter. I would find out where it had burnt tho and see if there was a method to re-route the wire to a more safe place to prevent burning in that spot again.
But chances are that still sounds not too right not me but possible.
Get you battery tested as well make sure that it is doing what its suppose to be as well if its coming from there.
