Asked by Jul 10, 2013 at 12:57 AM about the 2002 Dodge Dakota 4 Dr Sport 4WD Quad Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I left the ignition switch turned on for about an hour or two on my 02 Dakota . Now it won't start unless jumped and then it won't idle.  It started & ran fine prior to that. Did I fry something?

Thank's for the response. It just ended up needing a new battery. Starting and idling fine now.
