Message:
Hello,

I recently picked up a V6 2004 Dakota 4 door at a salvage auction hit on the driver side. I repaired the damage but the ABS light constantly blinks on and off. Does anyone know what that might indicate?

Also both power mirrors don't work. Checked the fuse, any suggestions other than replacing the switch?

Thanks,
Stan

What was actually hit on the driver's side? If it was forward enough, it might have either damaged the ABS module or disconnected/loosened the wire harness to it. If it was a little farther back, it might have screwed with the wiring(or the speed sensor) that runs along the frame rail OR kinked a brake line or 2. As for the power mirrors, make sure that the wires are connected to the back of the switch, if the hit was hard enough, it may have jiggled some stuff loose.

If it doesn't fit, you're using the wrong hammer!

The hit was at the pillar between the front and rear door... I will check the wiring along the frame rail. Where is the speed sensor?

Thanks for your help!
