#424 of 497 Crazy Parking Brake Light
Apr 18, 2010 (12:32 pm)
i have a 1991 1/2 dodge dakota 3.9 v-6 automatic. for the past week or two ive had the parking brake light turn on when i shift into reverse. Also, when i try to use anything to do with my cigar lighter( my blower motor is tied into this circut, not my doing, was like that when i got it). Ive checked all the fuses and everything. when disable the parking brake sensor the light still comes on when you turn something on. Really need help, got no blower

I have a 2002 with the 4.7. I have been having issues with the headlights on the truck. I seem to be loosing the passenger low beam. Highs work fine. I have replaced the bulb on a couple of occasions.
When I replace the bulb it works for a while then stops . It has gone in and out intermittently . Any Ideas?
I thought it was the socket connection .. I cleaned and expanded the socket terminals and it still happens.

My 97 Dodge dakota 4X4 has a chraging problem. I have had the battery checked the altenator checked. The repair shop told me it was the PCM. Today I changed the PCM and it started to charge at about 13.57 volts. After driving it I came home and it is now back to the old 11.87 volts and declining. Seems like the PCM was working and now quit. any ideas why?

My son's 2002 Dakota has a problem with the lights. Key off, everything perfect. Turn key on and headlights, fog, interior, tail, dash, flash like a disco party! I changed the headlight switch, but didn't help. Checked grounds, trailer plug etc. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

All at once I lost the following in my vehicle:
Power Locks & Keyless Entry
I've checked the fuses, and they are all fine. Has anyone seen/heard of this before?
Worried about not having any headlights or interior lights.
Thanks so much!
