Customer Question
My 199 dakota 6...

My 199 dakota 6 colander won't turn over some times . i can hear the starter click but no crank , it'll do that a few times then it will eventually crank but takes a bit to turn over , when cold .after driving it for a while it starts no problem until it sets for a few hours .

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

Just started a day ago . it will jump start . the click is coming from under the driver side .

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Dakota?

1999

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Dakota yourself? What have you tried so far?

Fixing it my self , recently i've replace the AIC , throttle sensor and the crank position sensor . idler fully and belt.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I'm thinking it may be a relay ?

If you hear a click that typically means the starter has failed. You can monitor voltage at the wires going to starter during problem. Both wires should show at least 11v with key in start position. If voltage is good but starter isn't turning engine this would mean the starter needs to be replaced. Here are replacement instructions. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have questions, thanks.

when i turn the key nothing happens , a few times ,then the starter will click and crank the motor
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 26 days ago

This usually means the starter has failed and step 1 is going to be checking voltage going to starter during problem. Another option is to jump pin 87 to pin 30 at starter relay next time problem happens, if this doesn't force engine to start it would also point toward starter as problem. If this does allow starter to turn then replace the relay. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
