2002 Dodge Dakota Question: I have a 2002 Dodge Dakota it will not start every now and then

I have a 2002 Dodge Dakota it will not start every now and then But when it wont start everything works except the gauges and the box around the P R D N 1 2 will not appear please help I even hooked up a code reader and it say their are no codes found? -
Answer 1
A simple code reader will only read simple Engine Codes and not and Body Control Module codes. The Body Control Module is involved with the operation of the dash lights. Really need a data streaming scanner that can stream the Body Control Computer to see what is going, could be that the instrument cluster has an intermittent problem. -
