2004 Dodge Dakota V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100, 00 miles
Hi I have a 2004 Dakota quad cab with a 4.7L auto, 2wd with 102, ooo km's`I have had one problem for about 6 months with the plug connected to the blower motor resister that I have replaced once and now it's heating up and needs replaced again. The reason I'm telling of this problem is because it may be related to the other problems that have happened in the last 2 days?
I first started noticing a couple of days ago when starting the truck it was turning over slower then normal at about the same time I noticed that my auto trans was acting strange, once in a while as I left a red light it would almost feel like it was in natural and as the RPM's picked up a bit the tranny would hit and go, but this only happened a couple of times.
This morning I went to start the truck and the battery was dead, pulled off the connections and cleaned them and then jumped started it and it started right up but would not idol. If I kept the rpm's up it would run fine. Let it idol and it died right away.
I managed to 2 foot it for a 15 min drive and again the trans acted up in the same way. I kept my eye on the battery meter and it didn't seem to be over to the charge side as I expected it to be. Drove it home and now warm it would idol but seemed low and on the verge of stalling. Shut the truck off and tried to start it and still dead battery. BTW the trans fluid is right up and looks and smells good. Also there is NO " service engine" or " check engine" light on. Thanks for any help you may be able to give me.
