I have a 2001 dakotaa with the same problem i believe its a loose connection somewhere or a faulty switch because sometimes if i hit a good bump they will come on for a while.

It ended up being the Centurial Timing Module, it was lucky for me that it just quit and wasn't intermittent. I also had to get my fob reprogrammed afterwards. Hope this info can help someone else out. Irene
