It started around late last year . My speedometer would work then stop then work again,my abs,brake,and eninge lights go on. the odometer reads noBuS and flickers and goes out and my radio dims then stops working, The 1inch sq box connected to the fuse box trips frantically. It all goes back to normal when I hit the dash except my abs and brake lights stay on now

If you have 4x4 the axel shaft is another problem. But other than that a good running truck.

Dakota Sport 2WD 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission

The worst part is the expense for the part, around $80. The replacement is fairly easy, but I would imagine the dealer wants an arm and a leg for labor.
