Dodge Dakota 2001
Chrysler Group Llc
Safety incident date:
May 18, 2004
Location:
Morrow, OH

while driving my 2001 dodge dakota quad cab at night, all of the lights (exterior and interior) started flashing intermittently. this could easily startle the driver or the drivers of other vehicles, and could leave the vehicle with no lights. dealer diagnosis revealed a bad central timer module (ctm) which controls the lighting system of the vehicle. anecdotal evidence gathered on various dodge forums revealed several instances of this same problem. daimler chrysler should be queried on how many of these modules they are replacing on 1998-2004 dodge dakotas.

1.sparks from dashboard area near headlight switch were seen by my wife when she borrowed the vehicle. 2.now the headlights will not turn off, when the switch is turned to the off position the fog lights come on, head lights also will not completely come on.3. so far, $49 dianostic, switch needed (had to be special ordered b/c the part has been changed three times already)(doesn't that constitute a recall?)anyway it is going to cost me $79 for the new switch and they are not even sure that will fix the problem.*ak

i drive quite a bit during the night time with my vehicle. there seems to be a very serious issuse with the wiring over heating at the headlight switch. i have replaced 5 ... going to be 6 headlight switches. there is a dangerous amount of head being put out at the switch itself. so much that it actually melts the pigtail at the light switch connection. the light switch itself is destroyed. its bad especcially when driving down the road and your headlamps, marker lights and dash light all go out. if i do not have a replacment part in my truck at the time, i have to find a spot in between switch position just to get my lights operational to "limp" my truck home. my choice of positions when the switch fails is headlamps with out markers and no dash lights or fog lamps markers and dash lights. being dodge has such terrible headlamps i use fog lights to drive when this happenes. believe it or not he fog lights are better than the driving lights. i recently saw a recall for dodge durangos with a under dash electrical problem. i would think that this wiring/headlamp switch problem should be a recall! thank you.
