Towed by a Dodge



yes my 96er broke down and ask my Dad to give a quick tow off the main road long enough to figure out what happened.

would crank, wouldn't start, no wait to start. i had seen this back in January 2008. i immediately figured it was the same fuse that went out back then. checked the fuse box under the hood and found one fuse burned out. grabbed the fuse for the trailer brakes, moved it over, fired up and then went to the local parts store to get another.

glad you got it fixed. does the 96 have a fuel bowl heater, may want to unplug or replace that, it can blow fuses and cause a no start
