1992 Dodge Dakota electrical is dead nothing works. Boost it and it starts. Runs for a few minutes and again dies not stalls. No power anywhere.
Check the Batttery and then once you have a full charged battery check the Alt to see if its charging.

What i found the black box on the pass side inner fender the plug had a bad connection .I left the key on and when i moved the plug the fuel pump came on and it started .I took it off and cleaned the plug.Works fine for now .I am done working on the truck .I'm glad its not mine.

My son had a 1992 Dodge Dakota. On a fairly regular basis it would stop running. Sometimes it blew the engine fuse, other times not. I traced the wire from that fuse into the engine compartment. It is inside the wire harness that goes across the top of the engine compartment. Inside this harness, the wire I was tracing is spliced into 4 or 5 other wires. Thinking that the problem was on one of those circuits, I put a fuse inline with every one of them. For the first time in months the truck did not act up. One fuse was blown. I traced that wire and it went to the transmission and is used to control overdrive. A little bit of research revealed that during these years sometimes the wire would be pinched inside the tranny. The short to ground reduced the voltage to the other under-hood components. From memory, these included the ECM, fuel injectors, and fuel pump. Low voltage to the ECM will cause it to malfunction or cease to operate. Hope this helps somebody! They are nice little trucks and they run forever.
