#200 of 509 Electrical Problem
May 24, 2008 (1:26 pm)
I have a 2001 Dodge Dakota and recently my son pulled a trailer that had a short in the wiring. The headlights won't work, the electric door fob and locks won't work, the headlights glow very dimly when we turn the engine off and the intermittent wiper function won't work. Kinda weird huh?
I'm afraid the short in the trailer wiring has caused some malfunctions in the wiring and or computer.

My 2002 Dakota radio is doing the same thing and draining the battery over night. Replaced the battery and problem still presist. Removed the fuses for the radio which stopped the problem, but have no radio. Anyone with a solution?

After the cruise control stopped functioning I had the dealer replace the clockspring.
all is well again.
I ordered a clockspring on line for $60.00 delivered. The dealer wanted $99.00 for one.

I have a 2001 dakota 5.9 xcab with a very similar problem. Hazards come on with no problems all the time, blinkers would flash once or twice and then turn off but eventually they stopped working altogether UNLESS the key is in accessory position then they work just fine. I pulled the plug on multi switch and checked the pins 11, 5, and 3. 11being hazards 5 and 3 being right and left blinkers, when the key is on the "on" position or the truck is running the hazards work but the blinkers get no power, when the key is in accessory position hazards work and blinkers work fine. At first I thought it was the flasher but it obviously works because the lights flash in acc. All relays are good as well as fuses and i've checked grounds. To me it still seems likely that it's a grounding issue, like when the truck's off there's enough grounding to complete the circuit but when the truck is on the extra voltage produced is more than it can ground and the circuit isn't completed. I am however no expert so i'm lost as to what to do now and gaining frustration, any ideas?

I HAVE A SIMILAR PROBLEM... EXCEPT IT BEEPS WHETHER OR NOT I AM MOVING. I THOUGHT IT MAY HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH MY TRANSMISSION SLIPPING IN AND OUT OF OVERDRIVE AT 45-60 MPH, BUT AFTER READING OTHER POSTS, IT SOUNDS AS IF THAT IS A DIFFERENT PROBLEM. WHICH LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THE PROBLEM IS ELECTRICAL. RECENTLY MY RIGHT BLINKER BLINKS AS IF A BULB IS BLOWN, BUT A CHECK OF THE LIGHTS SHOWS ALL IS WELL. I DON'T GET IT... ANY SUGGESTIONS?
