2000 Dodge Dakota Repair Question
Dodge Dakota Rpm Problem
Does it run normal driving down the road?Have you checked for codes yet?Also the computer sets the idleyyou don't adjust it.
Yes it ran fine, but still 600 rpm ideling. I atill don't understand why it's running now, because I tried for an hour & a half trying to start it this afternoon. I was always going to get a code checker, but I haven't yet. So I guess I have a bad computer or at least erratic?
I don't think you have a bad computer take it to a auto parts store and have it scanned for codes.Let me know the exact code numbers not code descriptions? You could try tapping on the idle air control valve at idle see if the idle increases?Also you could try cleaning the idle air control valve?
O.K. When ever I have a chance, as I will need someone to follow me. I'm recovering from a year's ago major stroke.
Just go out and drive it. If the battery was disconnected or run dead recently, the Engine Computer has to relearn "minimum throttle" before it will know when it has to be in control of idle speed. Until then you also won't get the nice idle flare-up to 1500 rpm when you start it.
To meet the conditions for the relearn to take place, drive at highway speed with the engine warmed up, then coast for at least seven seconds without touching the pedals.

I too had a dead battery, by leaving the parking lights on. I had'nt driven it after chargeing it & my computer has to relearn the idle speed also. So, I'm sure that this was the problem all along. Thanks for your help & all the info I was never aware of.

O.K. & I will try it tomorrow before or after the Super Bowl.
Tried it yesterday and everything is fine now! So thank you again for solving my problem. It has been a pleasure working with you. Bye!
