Have a look at your light switch, take it out and inspect the plastic between the blades... are they melted? Check the harness a the plug and the plug itself... if it also is heat damaged you will want to change the plug end also, go to your wrecker, there are lots of these trucks around so you'll find the right plug/switch combo for your truck, good luck.

Check the light switch itself, diconnect and inspect the wires supplying power at the plug, are they showing signs of distress, like melting or burning? Check the light switch itself at the back, look at the plastic between the blades/prongs, is it melted? If so it's the light switch. Ya can find one at any wrecker, good luck.

If it is same engine and same transmission. Otherwise computer controls won't work. For that reason it is not a good idea to go different years: connections, sensor locations, computer parameters, all may differ. Research it carefully.

A big project you are thinking of, a lot to consider. Connecting the transmission to the transfer case, getting all the controls in the cab working. Brutal! I wouldn't even consider it, but then I am retired and prize my leisure. Good luck with it. For the amount of time involved, easier to consider a 4WD that just needs an engine or engine and transmission.

The main crank bearing thrust washer (rear bearing)
face is worn ,for any number of reasons

The only fix is to remove the motor & change
the main bearings.

How do you know it is not just a failed crank damper
pulley, that is causing the misalignment issue,could be both
I guess

If the crank is walking, then your possibly going to also have
transmission torque converter problems or flywheel breakage

I've never worked on this sort of vehicle but when I replaced my water pump in another, I had to losen the Alternator to get the belt off since it went to both. You'll need to get a manual on your vehicle from an auto parts store. THere should be directions in that about how to replace your water pump.

Hello. I believe there is a process for setting the pintle length on the idle air control motor...you need to look at a shop manual and it will detail how to measure the stickout of the old iac. Then you turn/ adjust/ unscrew the iac pintle. The pintle is the part that sticks out to regulate the idle by opening or closing/blocking the idle air port. If you do not adjust the stickout, the pintle is either out too far or too short, and then the motor cannot effectively regulate the idle. It burns the motor because the computer(ECU/ECM) keeps telling the motor to open or close the port MORE but it's at the end of the travel and burns up due to running constantly. Hope this helps...Good Luck, Brian

Those generally don\'t "break". What usually happens is the get a piece of carbon or a small chunk soot that sticks to the shaft and causes the idle control motor to stick in a partially open position. Take it back off and clean it and re-install it. It will also take the computer a few minutes to reset the engine idle once the new idle motor is installed.

spray a squirt of WD-40 down the plug hole and work the plug a bit each way to allow it to work past the thread . Keep applying the WD -40 until you get it out . Check that you have the correct reach plug as this happens if the thread is too long and the threads become filled with carbon .

Possibly the replacement headlight switch has the same defect.

Not certain... just a thought... I believe Dodge uses vacuum solenoids to switch air flow from floor to vents and to defrost. Perhaps your loose line is from that solenoid. My '93 would go from defrost to floor when climbing a hill because of loss of vacuum. I hope this helps steer you to a solution.

- Check for continuity across the stop lamp switch when it is CLOSED.
- If the vehicle is equipped with Rear Wheel Anti-Lock (RWAL) brakes, circuit F32 connects to the RWAL module. Check bulbs in tail light and wiring in the rear also

Disconnect the battery cables and inspect for contact corrosion, if present the alternator is not charging the car's battery because of a poor electrical cable connection. Next mix a solution of one part baking soda to three parts tap water and pour over both the cables and the battery contacts, allow the baking soda to dissolve the corrosion, once the fizzing has stopped, pour more tap water to clean remaining corrosion, dry with a paper towel and reconnect cables tightly to the battery.

you need to check fuel pressure with a pressure gauge to see if its within specs.it should be around 35psi and no lower then about 32psi.your problem sounds like a fuel pressure problem and the pump should be changed as well as the filter, but check to make sure the fuel filter is not plugged as this can also cause a pressure problem.
