Having problems with your 2002 Dodge Dakota Club Cab ?
Hi, my 2002 Dodge Dakota has been going dead lately and needs to be jump started. I have already replaced the battery to no avail. It usually goes dead after sitting for a few days. But the max battery draw is .3 amps, which is acceptable. When the condition happens, after jump starting, i have to keep the accelerator open to keep it running. I have figured out that the IAC valve not opening during a cold start was the cause of that. I cleaned the IAC and re-installed it. It still would not
It could very well be a defective battery, you could have 1 or more bad cells in the battery. A voltage regulator or an alternator. If it isn't one of those then there is something drawing power from somewhere that is causing it to go dead.
