Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus
The battery has been drained from some thing, when the key has tirned off the car some thing is still clicking, the only wat to stop the clicking noice is to turn the key to activate the battery, or disconnect the battery all together
Diconnect your battery earth lead connect a test bulb on the lead and the other to the cars body make sure there is a good connections on your test buld and car if you have a drain the light will light up now for the confusing bit some things on your car are permenantly live example car alarms clocks ect . this in mind remove your cars fuses one at a time until light goes out now see what that fuse controls if its the clock well so it should if all the fuses have been removed and the lights still on then the problem is in one of the non fused circiuts like the starter motor or alternator these will have to be disconnected one at a time until light goes out or you could try finding the relay that is clicking because that is what it will be and replace it see if it cures your problem usually when batteries being drained it is in the light circiut boot lamp, glove box ect yates210456

The clicking you hear is a relay trying to make a connection. this is due to the fact that it doesn't have enough voltage to keep the contacts closed or there is a short in that system and something is making it want to close the circuit but doesn't have enough voltage. the only way i would know which relay it is is to have you look for it in the junction box or the fuse block under the dash. I then be able to provide a resonable solution for this.. please post back with the result of the serch.
