problem #2

Oct 182004

Dakota 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 69,000 miles
The module controlling my 2002 Dodge Dakota's headlight's, windshield wipers, interiot lights failed. Symptoms are shockingly close to those of the recall (I do have a manual transmission). Headlights failed, brights failed, wipers failed. Only turn signals horn and caution lights remain. Dealer refuses to admit it is related to recall. Symptoms are the same! what do I do about this!?
