Battery might be weak, what is the voltage? Maybe your ignition switch is fault? Hard to diagnose on the info we have.


Could be computer, cam sensor, crank sensor, or any number of other things. Need more info.

My 1994 dakota just did that today. Did you fid the problem cuz I can't. I put new battery in cause I notice my gauge for battery and bouncing around before it this happen. And my truck shifts hard but pretty sure that tranny problem.
