problem #3

Dec 112006

Dakota 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,670 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Dakota. While driving at various speeds, the air bag light illuminated. The dealer was unable to determine the cause of failure, however, they reset the controller. This did not correct the failure and it repeatedly continued to occur. The current mileage was 17,404 and failure mileage was 13,670. Updated 10/25/07

Dakota 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Air-bag warning lights come on intermittently sometimes remain on for miles. Dealer cannot duplicate problem. Question is, will they work when needed?

problem #1

Dakota 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Airbag lights continue to come on intermittently. Previous truck was traded in as the dealer could not fix the issue. Now, the new truck is experiencing the same issue. I think this should be kept track of in case of a widespread issue concerning airbag warning lights in similar vehicles (2005 Dodge Dakota).
