Just bought a 1993 Dodge Dakota as my son's first car. Few things happened within hours and I'm stressing out about more cost. 1st issue. Speedometer and Odometer stopped working while I was driving down the interstate. Separate issue. Heater only blows cold air which is bad living in Washington State. Separate issue. Hot/Cold engine gauge not working. Separate issue. Noticed wire with square connector hanging under steering column down by floor not connected to anything. Separate issue. Steering has about 1/4 wheel play. Separate issue. Small rattle, barely audible, from passenger side under hood appears to originate toward the bottom of engine area. If necessary I can take it to be looked at, but want to know the right questions to ask, and at least look like I know what I'm talking about.
We already know the transfer case needs to be replaced, and we are doing that tomorrow. Could any of these issues be related, and will I spend a fortune fixing it?
have the same problem?
