Dakota Auto-start question
I have a 2000 Dakota and was trying to install an auto-start for it.
Seems that the "box" will pick up and all the lights come on as they are suppose to, but it will not crank.
This is a cheapo model....BullDog RS82i
I have no power door locks, windows, or alarm system on it.
I bought the T Harness for it so I would not have to splice into the wires. What is strange is the fact that whenn I started probing the wires for voltages after it wouldn't work I was getting the 12 volts for the constant, but when I would try the "ON" position or the "crank" position it would drop to 6-7 volts. But it will work just fine with the key?????
Am I missing something here? I took the unit back to the store and got another one, thinkg that maybe the module was bad, but I got the same results.
All the wires for the T-Harness are correct. Any suggestions?
I already called the tech line at BUllDog...they said switch the crank and accessory wire, which I did, with the same results. Then he told me the module was bad. Thats when I got the new one. They can't all be bad.....LOL?
