1992 Daytona No Power Digital Overhead

I have a 1992 Dodge Daytona IROC, the overhead console digital display isn't working, and I seem to be having issues finding wiring diagrams in both of my Chilton's manuals for that. I wasn't sure if there was a common problem in this setup or if anyone may have information on where to find a wiring diagram? I figured I may give the trusty ol' forums a chance before I go semi-blindly ripping into it with little electrical experience. Thanks for any input! Sorry for the poor picture.

I will send you the wiring for he overhead consoles for both vehicles.
Chryslers diagnostics have you looking at voltages with the DRB2 while accessing "engine node", while conducting diagnotics so without a scanner these diagnostics would be useless.
You guys are awesome. I'm going to try to dig into this as soon as possible. The Daytona has come a long way since I bought it. :D
That's interesting considering that the node modules are not found in the G bodies. Very few J-bodies came with them, and with them was the Electronic Vehicle Information System (EVIC). Unless you had the EVIC system, which I'm pretty sure 1994 Dakotas did not have, there is no node module for a DRB to talk to. The most common K-based car to have the EVIC system would be the Imperials and New Yorkers.

If you did have the EVIC system, the temperature sensor is built into the node module.

For a Dakota wiring diagram, I have:

Pin 1: (BLK) Ground
Pin 2: (YEL) Interior lamps circuit
Pin 3: (PNK) Hot at all times
Pin 4: (WHT) Ignition power-hot in RUN
Pin 5: (BLK/Lt GRN) Looks like another ground
Pin 6: (BLK/Lt Blu) To temperature sensor
Pin 7: Not used
Pin 8: (VIO/Lt Grn) To temperature sensor
Pin 9: (BLK/YEL) To interior lamps system (headlamp switch)
Pin 10: (ORG) Interior lamp system (Rheostat)

So, based on this, the Dakota overhead consoles do not utilize the CCD bus.

reading through this has been pretty interesting, any updates, my daytona had the same issue but it was a burned up overhead module but lucky for me i have like 5 spares LOL as i was told to buy them up if you want to keep it working

and my sensor is from a 01 dodge ram, but you can buy them new from oreillys
The sensors are not tough to come by. Grand Cherokees, Minivans, Dakotas, Durangos, Rams all share the same thing. Heck, that sensor MAY still be in use in today's new cars.
