Question type: General

i have a 2000 dakota 4x4 4.7, it wont start when the steering wheel is up acts
like theres no battery in it but when i put the wheel down it starts and runs
normal, but if i use the tilt up it kills it like i just turned the key off.

1 Answer


The wires running up threw the steering column to the key locking cylinder, at the joint of where the tilt moves up and down, sounds like a wire is broken. Just need to tear into it to find it.
