#355 of 497 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab Electrical
Aug 13, 2009 (6:03 pm)
Truck has 80,000 miles. Just started today with electrical problems. Park lamps flicker on and off when the truck is off. High beam indicator is always on (even when headlights are not). Truck constantly tells me the door is open even when driving. Interior lights stay on all of the time (door ajar). Power locks do not work. Everything else functions normally. I had to start pulling fuses to keep my battery from draining. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

the hazard fuse in the fuse box under the hood of my 1999 dodge dakota magnum 6 cyl keeps burning out thus my turn signals do not work i have replaced this fuse 3 times and 20 minutes after it burns again.

I've got a 2005 quad cab and have never had the problem you're describing.
But, if I were to start troubleshooting someplace, it would be looking for a bad ground on the instrument cluster.

sounds like a short in the wiring trace the wire all the way from point a to point b. it may be rubbing on something
