Engine willnot crank

Just bought 99 stratus from little old lady, beautiful shape.(the car)
Went to start this am and will not crank. When I turn key to start there is no turning of engine. Only brake light and transmission indicator light, light up. When I try the (after factory) car starter dashboard lights up as usual but no crank. Tried jumping it to no avail. Checked 40 amp fuse for ignition, which was OK.

You will need to check for a crank signal at the starter solenoid.

My car wont start, no turn over, all of the electronics work fine. I hear the fuel pump working. What could it be? I parked went in a store, came out and it just wouldn't start.


Possible defective starter motor. Try tapping on starter motor with a blunt object ( if accessible ) while holding the key in the crank position. If the engine starts, the starter motor is bad. If it doesn't, you will have to check for start power at the starter directly. Possible starter motor/starter relay/ wiring/ignition switch etc

I replaced the fuel pump and filter in a 99 dodge stratus and it still wont start what can I try to fix it?


Hi,
When you turn the key to "on" (not to crank), listen to determine if you can hear the fuel pump. If you can't hear, you might have someone outside the car and near the gas tank, listen closely as you do this. It's possible the pump isn't working... though you replaced it.
If you're getting fuel, try to determine if you're getting spark at the plugs.
Hope this helps... a little.

My 2000 Stratus wont start either


if your check engine light does not go on when you have the key on engine off then you should check first the fuse box for the shut down fuse under the hood next to the battery if the fuses are ok then check the shut down relay on the cover of fuse box you can see which is the shut down relay remove the relay and with a test light connected to ground with the key on engine off you should have to terminals turn on your test light if not then your problem could be pcm if you get light on two then check for the relay it may be faulty but your check engine light should turn on when you have key on engine off good luck

1996 Dodge Stratus stalls when starting


I had this problem with my 99 Durango and went to AutoBeef.com to discover this was a major problem with 98 & 99 Durangos. The fix was easy -- PCM "brain" was exchanged with a refurbished PCM "brain" from an online PCM company in Florida. You can google as I can't remember name of company. I called them and they said - Yep this is the fix -- the guys told me 3 screws all I had gone to several mechanics and dealers -- none could figure it out. I was so grateful that someone gave me the clue I needed.
