2005 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #3

Jul 012016

Dakota Laremie 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


I worked nights and having this POS alarm system going off at 4 in the morning was terrible. I was getting into the truck to leave work and the alarm went off and I had to drive all the way home in order for it to randomly stop in the driveway after 15 minutes. this was the second night that we had it.

problem #2

Dakota SLT 3.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,000 miles

Both remote keys are now inop and, as it happened just outside the warranty period, neither the dealer nor Chrysler are willing to help. New keys cost in excess of $200.

problem #1

Dakota LS V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,000 miles

Same problem as everyone else that has a Darango. Battery clip solder joint breaks easily. Very bad design. Both keys failed., one key was hardly ever used and when first key broke, second key broke a few weeks later. One key had the left side solder joint fail and the other had the right side solder joint fail. As I work with electronic assemblies daily, I repaired the solder joints and replaced the batteries, but only one key started working again and only for a week. Will attempt to repair again.

The dealership wants $235 for a new key and to have the remote reprogrammed.
