Headlights were flickering on and off rapidly, along with interior lights and taillights. Today they do not work. If lights were to have gone out while I was driving at night could have caused serious incident. No solution to problem yet.

I have a 2001 Dodge Dakota. One headlight bulb failed. The vehicle manual instructs one to remove two bolts to access the bulb. This bulb is subject to the weather and has rusted. I need to replace the bolts. Dodge indicates that the bolt is not sold separately and is part of the headlight unit. This unit is $250. 00. I believe this is an absurd amount to pay for a bolt which is required to operate the vehicle with functional headlights.

Headlights turning off and on and flashing while driving, power door locks not working during this time. If interior lights are on at this time they would flash on and off also. Found previous year models of Dodge ram's and Dakota's have same problem which was recalled. Central timer module had to be replaced and reprogrammed. A vehicle with 60,000 miles should not have this problem. Could only drive in daylight hours until problem was resolved at my expense.
The module controlling my 2002 Dodge Dakota's headlight's, windshield wipers, interiot lights failed. Symptoms are shockingly close to those of the recall (I do have a manual transmission). Headlights failed, brights failed, wipers failed. Only turn signals horn and caution lights remain. Dealer refuses to admit it is related to recall. Symptoms are the same! what do I do about this!?.
While driving at any speed, the headlights would intermittently fail after turning on the high beam lights. When the high beams were turned off, the headlights would stop working until the consumer turned the vehicle off and restarted it. The headlights would come on after repeated attempts of using the dimmer switch.
