carverman, thanks a million for the very complete reply. I just realized this afternoon I hadn't gone back to this site to check for any responses. Sorry for the delay. I'll bring the Dakota to a auto electrics shop nearby and have them take a look at it. When I get this fixed, I'll post back here.
#118 of 123 Anyone know the manual codes?
Nov 21, 2011 (9:37 am)
Having trouble with my 2000 Dodge Dakota V-6. It sounds like it wants to turn over but just can't. The past couple of days I've had to hold the gas to a high idle to keep her running, then she sometimes dies before I get her in gear if I let off the gas. I did the manual code checker by turning the key three times... I get 6 beeps , followed by 2 beeps. Any help out there?
At this point I'm gonna have to have it towed I think.

It's hard to diagnose those beeps. Invest in an OBDII hand held code reader, they are very cheap to buy now, and you can get them in any
store that sells some automotive products.
The OBDII code reader will give you the P-codes, which are very easy to
The stalling could be due to a low charged battery..especially if it has
a hard time turning over in colder weather, when weak batteries start
showing their age and inabilty to supply cranking amps.
If the battery voltage is below 10volts, most of the sensors could be
affected as well, and that could cause the engine to die, as the TPS
sensor depends on a good regulated 5V being supplied from the PCM.
same with the Cam and crank sensors.
Test the battery voltage no load (ignition off)..if it's not reading 12.6 volts,
then the battery is undercharged. That could be due to charging problem
or most likely the battery itself if it is more than 4 years old.
It's easy to test the battery..put a digital voltmeter across the battery
terminals and crank the engine..if it's "grunting" or the starter solenoid
is clicking..it's the battery not able to supply the starter.

Hello and thank you to anyone who helps me solve this issue.
Recently, and I mean all within about 24 hours, my truck experienced very different symptoms. The first was that my cd player will no longer eject cds. While this is possibly not related to the other 3 it is just weird it happened at the same time so it is worth mentioning. The next was my fuel gauge stopped working, then the check engine light came on. I received 3 codes, B2100, P0463, and P0700. After looking up the codes they stand for the following:
B2100 - Low Battery Voltage
P0463 - Fuel Level Sending Unit Volts Too High
P0700 - Check Transmissions DTCs
This code indicates that the EATX (Transmission controller) has an active fault and has illuminated the MIL via a BUS message. The specific fault must be acquired from the EATX via a DRBIII tool. (Input or Output Speed Sensor failures often cause this code)
My first thought was this had to be electrical so I replaced all battery hardware and expertly cleaned the terminals. Didn't fix. I then checked all the fuses (couldn't check relays) and found one blown for towing lights ... and it didn't fix it. Now I'm just confused and would really appreciate any help. Going through the forums I've seen a ton of posts about the P0700 code but I'm not having any noticeable tranny problems like most the posters complain they experience. The tranny is less than 30k miles old and is shifting great. I'm feeling or hearing no weird noises or anything.
As far as the truck it is an 05' Dakota 6 cylinder standard model with only the towing package upgrade. It has just over 140,000 miles, still runs good, and gets it's EPA estimated fuel economy. I just recently dropped the tranny pan and replaced the filter, all the fluid, and the surrounding gasket. The oil is changed approx. every 3k but as I drive a lot of highway miles if I go to like 3.2k or so I'm not overly concerned. I use all synthetic oil with usually mobile-1 filters unless a nicer brand has a really good sale on. It does have a cold air intake long with - and I'm not sure of the name as it was preinstalled when I bought it - an oil airater. For the cd player it is the standard 1 disk and is stock. The previous owner was a car mechanic so here is hoping he took care of it like he said he did.

Can you try that code check again?
55 is "end of codes" but the others should all be 2 digit numbers... so you have either x3 and 32, or 33 and x2, or 33 and 2x ahead of the 55. Need to find out what that "x" is.
