I've got a 97 Dakota 5.2 that won't start. At first it was intermittent. I noticed while cranking, the fuel gauge and the oil gauge weren't working. If they worked, the truck would start. After a few times starting, it quit and hasn't started since. I had a friend scan it with his scanner and it would never link. I had already used my code reader and it said "unable to link up" or something to that effect. I had read somewhere that the crank position sensor caused the same symptoms, so I replaced it, but it didn't help. There is no fire and the fuel pump doesn't come on. I've swapped out the shut down and fuel pump relays, but it didn't help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
