Step 0 - grab a copy of the factory service manual. (Hint: It's not a Chilton Dakota or a Haynes Dakota, but a Chrysler Corp. Dodge Division Dakota ... Bishko is the current publisher of the official books, but you can also find them used on Ebay, plus there's a few web sites with links to download.)

Step 1 - Get a competent OBDII reader than can handle the live data stream.

Step 2 - Ask the ECU what it thinks is going on.

Work from there.
