QUAD CAB WON'T START-BATTERY ALTERNATOR OK
2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab V-8 engine 95,000 miles. My truck intermittently won't start. Correlates with moderate to heavy rain. Symptoms: no interior lights, won't start, no clicking sounds. Alternator amps good at 14-15, battery voltage good at 12-14. Battery connections OK. AFter it dries out a bit, truck cranks right up, no problems. Two years ago had a similar issue only the headlights, door locks and interior lights would not work OR the headlights and interior lights would come on by themselves while the truck was parked and wouldn't go off until I disconnected the battery. Three repairs shop couldn't locate problem, but a boat mechanic friend suggested the computer was getting wet. Only way to prevent it was to use a silicone base around the chip and duct tape the box to prevent moisture. Am I experiencing the same issue now and is there a permanent fix to this.I know duct tape is supposed to fix everything, but this is a bit ridiculous.
