      Try these sources for the replacement parts; www.autopartsmopar.com, www.mydodgeparts.com, www.autoanything.com, www.rockauto.com - to list only a few. For example, they (AutoPartsMopar) list the front seat belt retractor assemblies from around $83.00 each for your vehicle.

    Power locks not working on both back doors
    The front doors lock from the switch or the key fob but I have to manually lock the back doors. I bought it used and didn't realize they were like that until the used car warranty was up.

      Several possibilities; faulty door lock switches, faulty door lock relay, faulty door lock wiring or connections common to both rear doors. After checking the relay, and as the next step - exchange one of the front door lock switches to the rear to see if the problem moves.

      A plastic clip to hold the connecting rod to the door lever is loose or broken and it is the cause of the door handle can't open from the inside.

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com, wwwpartsgeek.com, www.autoanything.com and www.rockauto.com - to list only a few sources. For example, they (RockAuto) list the complete rear axle assembly (remanufactured) from around $990.00 (minus the core charge) fro your vehicle - depending on the axle (gear) ratio.

      The replacement bed - as an assembly - may be more readily available via a local salvage yard or auto body shops in your area.

      Thanks very much, as I'm writing from Jamaica, West Indies and received a quote of US$1,145 for the Axle Assembly, delivery include shipping cost and US$1,500 for the Bed Assembly, but will have to pick up the latter from a shop in Pennsylvania. The truck is located in Portland, Ionia, MI 48837 and I used the website at www.uneedapart.com. Thanks for the links as I will use them to compare prices.

    Why don't I have gauges on my dash.
    All gauges don't work. Gas, temp, oil, battery , RPM, Speedometer . The code on my OBD Code Reader is P 1698 Manufactures Control. I need to know how I can get them back

      Disconnect the both battery cables negative and positive terminals for hour. Prior for the re-installation of the battery cables, cross it the both terminals for a few minutes to remove any energy may stored in the electrical system.
      This trick worked on my 92 Dodge Caravan.In the event, if the gauges do not work then the instrument panel clusters logic quit.

    What is the best way to fix headlight lift motor so they will go up and down?
    head lights will not go down. driver's side head light was not plugged in when plugged in, the drivers side lamp did go down but the passenger's side stayed up and then the driver's side would not come up.?

      Most likely the headlight lift motor is faulty, or the lift motor mechanism is binding. Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com, wwwpartsgeek.com, and www.rockauto.com - to list only a few - for the replacement parts.

    Why are my radio, auto doorlocks, power trunk, and interior lights are not working?
    I was swapping radios and after I completed the job none of the above are working, I have checked fuses and reconnected the battery to attempt to reset everything and it still doesnt work.

      Has to be a blown fuse or something in the wiring you may/may not have connected properly.If it was a plug n play install,something in the harness is not compatible with the factory harness.Also,check under the hood near the battery or starter relay (if your car has one)for a silver in color circuit breaker.It may have went bad

    Why do my brake lights not work when I turn on my running lights
    they work ok when my running lights are off
     
    • wbrockstar
      8/9/2013 wbrockstar
      The only thing that comes to mind is,either the bulb sockets have corrossion on them or they got a bad ground.The bulb is tryin to use the ground from the running lights,so when thats happening the brake light no longer has power goin to it.There might also be a short which is only occuring when the running lights are on.

      MOST PROBABLY THE WIRES ARE JUMPERED SO TAIL LIGHTS AND BRAKES LIGHTS ARE USING THE SAME BULBS

    The car is an automatic. I have already tried: WD-40, tapping the lock w/ a small hammer (key in & without), jiggled the steering wheel while jiggling/pushing in key, made sure the car was in park, pushing on brake pedal, emergency brake on & off & even had someone ...

      CAUTION
      The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before working around the steering column. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bags, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.

      Disarm the air bag system.
      Remove the left end instrument panel cover/fuse panel and remove the retaining screw holding the end of the instrument panel top cover.
      Remove the instrument panel center bezel.
      Remove the screws that secure the instrument panel top cover to the center of the instrument panel.
      Lift the instrument panel top cover enough to gain access to the knee bolster attaching screws.
      Remove the lower knee bolster attaching screws and knee bolster from the vehicle.
      Remove the lower steering column cover attaching screws. Pull down on the lower cover to clear the ignition key cylinder and key release (if equipped).
      Remove the lower steering column cover, sliding the cover forward while holding down the steering wheel tilt lever.
      Tilt the steering wheel down to the fully lowered position and remove the upper steering column cover.
      Remove the screws that hold the combination switch to the ignition lock housing.
      Place the ignition lock cylinder in the RUN position.
      Insert a small prying tool into the hole in the lower cover and depress the cylinder release tab.
      Remove the ignition lock cylinder from the steering column.

      Try this,cause its how an 06 model is.May/may not need to remove wheel.Sometimes there are 2 bolts that run through the plastic wheel well cover( the part that keeps water from getting into engine bay,between tire tire and fender.There are either 2 bolts goin through that part and into battery tray or youll have to remove that part completely to get to those 2 bolts
