Have you run a fualt code test on the systems control mofule? You may have a defective crank sensor or cam sensor, the test will give a code.
For vehicles made after 1996, retrieving the codes of the check engine light in \012your dash panel is simple. All you need to do is find your diagnostic connector \012located under the dash by the driver side. You can then hook up a scanner and \012the codes will be displayed for you. If you don't have any scanner like most \012drivers, you can bring your vehicle to any local automotive store and they will \012usually scan the codes FREE for you.

However, for vehicles made on or before 1995, there is only one \012cheap way to get it: You do it yourself!

On board diagnostic (OBD) was designed on vehicles equipped \012with electronic fuel injection so you can generally retrieve the codes yourself. \012No need buying a scanner or \012running to any parts stores to check the engine light. This system is called \012obd1 and applies to most vehicles made before 1995 for domestics and 1993 \012on imports.

Dodge trucks have a \012diagnostic trouble code retrieval method, Unlike Gm and Ford trucks the Dodge \012line of trucks has no data port connector to gather codes from.

Instead Dodge has a ignition cycle \012activation sequence that anyone can active by turning the ignition key on off in \012rapid succession five times with the cycle ending in the "on" position.

Once this activation has started the check \012engine light will start to flash. The first set of check engine light flashes \012will be the first digit of the two number code. After the check engine light \012pauses for a short time it will start to blink again starting the second digit \012identification and completing the code's second number. If additional trouble \012codes are stored in the computer the first digit will begin to flash, and then \012the second digit. For example: the check engine light flashes four times, pauses \012and then flashes three more times the code is 43.

The check engine light will flash one and then two meaning the \012code gathering is over. The system will only flash 12 if there are no codes \012stored in the computer's memory. To clear codes disconnect the negative battery \012terminal for 30 seconds and reconnect.
