sometimes the shifting problem will go away, but chattering and squeaking stay.

The battery was dead and had to be jumped. How do I get the computer to do the self test so I can get my certificate and complete my registration?

Vehicle is in 4WD and cannot disconnect because the shift lever is disconnected, how can I reconnect it?

minor crash with truck, damaged front end and replaced front clip . had it running drove a couple miles. Parked overnight and wont start again.

turn signals work, head lights work , hazards work , checked fuses and all bulbs and changed head light switch

Odometer said P done?

180,000+ miles. Code "no bus" came up with engine light on dash when it would not restart, then next day I turned key in ignition and without turning it over 3x(on/off)and odometer said "p done". What do these mean?

180k miles. Also, "no bus" on the odometer.
Did the key trick 3x in 5 seconds to see any codes.it reads "P done"?

The truck stops fine but the emergency brake will not hold the truck from rolling on a hill even a small one

I checked all electrical connections for voltage all is good. switch on dash board checks out good. compressor turns free with wrench. can not jump the relay to jump the compressor. can I put temp wedges in and force it to turn so I can charge it?

I bought my Dakota a year ago and it ran great for about 6 months. Check engine light came on throwing a generic tranny code P0700 as well as P0420 & P0320. Replaced the crank sensor and the speed sensor. Light stayed on but ran great for a couple weeks. There same codes again. Changed them out again a couple days ago and the light went off and ran spectacular for about 20 miles. Light came back on and ran horrible again(revved up and wouldn't downshift at a stop) same codes came back. Could it possibly be a ground wire shorting out because even with these codes and light staying on it seems to have a mind of its own, running good then not, back and forth?

When you start the truck it has a loud noise from the engine as if something is being shredded an a loud ticking noise! When you look under the hood there is metal shavings on the pully belt. Which is on the right side of the alternator. We just drove from Florida to Oklahoma everything was fine till last night when we went to move the truck from under the tree to the garage. The ac stopped blowing cold air also but when we went to add some leak stuff the low pressure area was already green. Please help four kids an a puppy

not even sure this is what is wrong, we already changed the crank sensor and still will not start, code came up as p0340 after we had changed the crank, which at first it said the crank

it does start up again but does the same thing over
