Dodge Dakota (1997-2000) — This is the 2nd generation of the Dakota family. The car was produced in 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000. Dodge Dakota was presented in a 2-door and a 4-door pickup truck, with 2.5 L, 3.7 L, 3.9 L, 4.7 L, 5.2 L, 5.9 L gasoline engines and 2.5 L diesel engines (Brazil).

This article details the location of the fuse and relay boxes, with their diagrams and descriptions, suitable for all 1997-2000 Dakota models  (ST, R/T, Sport, SLT, SXT, SXT+) and also for Regular Cab, Extended Cab, Quad Cab and Club Cab.

RELAYS
R1 -Horn relay (honk, beeper), High Note Horn, Low Note Horn
R2 -Combination Flasher relay - Turn signals (blinkers), warning hazard lights (see also relay CF - in additional "fuse / relay block" under the dash)

The Cigarette lighter fuse is at number 15 with an amperage of 15 Amps. The Fuel Pump has 3 fuses: 1st – at number 9 with an amperage of 10 Amps, the 2nd and 3rd fuses – under the hood at number 1 with an amperage of 20 Amps and at number 9 with an amperage of 40 Amps, also you can check Fuel Pump relay – № R13 (see below).

Additional Fuse / Relay box

An additional fuse and relay box (FRB) is located under the dashboard. It is actually mated to the interior fuse box (junction block), but it is more convenient to service it under the dash.

Combination flasher

If you have problems with Turn signal indicators, Hazard warning lights, Stop signal – you also have to check Combination flasher – smart relay is located in the “Fuse and relay” block which is located on the back of the interior fuse box (junction block) near the dash panel under the left end of the instrument panel (as described above).

Fuse box and relays under the hood

The underhood fuse and relay box (also referred to as Power Distribution Center (PDC)) is located on the left side (as you drive the vehicle) of the engine compartment, next to the battery.
