SOURCE: 2004 Dodge Truck 5.7L will not start, no battery power

I wouldn't think it was the alternator, if the battery is "green" and it does not crank, it sounds like something else is wrong. It could be a bad connection somewhere or possibly a computer problem. I would check the battery and make sure that it is at least 12+ volts and check all the terminals to make sure that nothing came loose. A loose ground could cause some of the symptoms.

SOURCE: Programming keyless remote for Neon 2004

There is a way to program a remote if there is already a valid remote. Unfortunatly if you don't have a valid remote the only way to get one programmed is at the dealership with their scan tool.

I have pasted directions for programming a remote if there is already a valid transmiter.


CUSTOMER PROGRAMMING For a customer to be able to program RKE transmitters themselves, at least one RKE transmitter must be programmed already. This procedure is to add additional transmitters. If all transmitters are lost, the DRB III® scan tool must be used to program the new transmitters.

  1. Insert the key into the ignition switch, and turn the ignition switch to the RUN position without starting the vehicle (allow chimes to stop).
  2. Using the RKE transmitter programmed to the RKE module, press and continuously hold down the UNLOCK button for 4-10 seconds.
  3. Within the 4-10 second time range, continue to hold the UNLOCK button and press the PANIC button. Both buttons may then be released. Upon the PANIC button being depressed, the message for customer programming mode will be transmitted to the RKE module.
  4. A chime will be heard to verify that the customer programming mode has been entered (allow 3 seconds to hear chimes).
  5. Press and release any button on each transmitter that is to be programmed to the RKE module, including any transmitters which were previously programmed to the RKE module (with a maximum of four possible). After each transmitter is successfully programmed, a chime will be heard to verify that successful programming of the transmitter has occurred.
  6. After thirty seconds, or upon the ignition switch being turned OFF, the RKE module will exit programming mode.

SOURCE: 2004 Dodge Stratus 2.7 thermostat location

Finding the thermostat: Follow the LOWER radiator hose to where it meets the engine. It's in there. Most cars that I've worked on have the thermostat at the end of the upper radiator hose, but not this car. Replacing the thermostat: You need to remove the thermostat housing. (It's the piece that the lower radiator hose connects to.) - You do not need to remove the radiator hose from the housing. - First remove the bolt that is holding a bracket. This bracket just holds some wires in place. - Now remove the three bolts that hold the housing to the engine block. These bolts can be fairly hard to turn, but just keep trying. - Gently pry the housing away from the engine block. You can use a flat-head screwdriver to help pry, but do not scratch the mating surfaces of the housing and the block. - Pull out the thermostat, noting that the spring end goes into the engine. - When you put the new thermostat in, you probably want to use a new black rubber gasket, but you might be able to use the old one if you have no choice. Also, I didn't add any permatex or anything and it seems fine. - I tightened the bolts to 22foot pounds, but this might be a little high. Whatever you do, DO NOT overtighten the bolts. Couple other notes: I first removed the air cleaner cover and tubes to get a little more working room. I also unplugged one wiring harness to make more room. Otherwise, I was able to get my big hands in there. A new thermostat did not fix my problem. Here is a description of the problem I was having and the solution: Problem: The temperature gauge was spiking occasionally, all the way into the red. It would spike up and come back to normal. It would spike usually while in idle, but sometimes while driving. Usually about once every twenty minutes. Things I checked first: - The plastic reservior for the radiator was full to the top. - The electric fans were running, and running on high speed. - The car had working heat. - Replaced the thermostat. Did nothing to help the problem. Problem Found: - Vapor lock. Even though the reservior was full of fluid, it had previously gotten too low and the system sucked in some air. Once that happens, it doesn't matter if the reservior is full, the cooling system will not draw in the coolant. This is because filling the plastic reservior does not pour coolant directly into the cooling system. The coolant is sucked into the cooling system through a tube, like drinking soda through a straw. So the reservior, where they tell you to add coolant, was full but the cooling system (radiator, engine, pump, etc.) was almost out of coolant and wasn't able to draw in any more. Solution: When the engine is cool, open the metal radiator cap that's sticking right up out of the engine. It can be found by following the upper radiator hose to the engine. There is a tall metal tube with a metal cap on it. Pull that cap off (when it not hot) and fill it up with radiator fluid. (I use radiator fluid that's pre-diluted and designed for all makes and models of cars). Idle the car, in park, for about thirty seconds. Stop the engine and put the cap back on. If you're lucky, all the air bubbles are out of the system and you're all set.

SOURCE: replace water pump on 2004 Dodge Stratus 2.4L DOHC

First, I'd recommend you buy a manual, because the water pump is internally mounted, driven by the timing belt. You will also need a puller to remove the crankshaft pulley. You can usually rent/borrow this from the same place you bought the manual. The manual will also show you how to properly install the timing belt and compress the tensioner.
You will need to drain the cooling system, raise the car (safely), remove the right tire, right inner fender, right engine mount (aka front mount), accessory drive belts, timing belt cover, timing belt and tensioner (which needs to be recompressed correctly), and now you are at the water pump. Since the timing belt has to be removed, you should also replace it.

On my 2004 dodge stratus the door lock switch on the drivers side does not unlock the doors. It will lock all of the doors and the windows but it just will not unlock. The passenger side still works for...


I have answered this subject many times: it is a bad BCM or Body Control Module. The problem begins intermittently, but progresses during two to three years and finally inutilizes all door locks. As BCM repair and removal from the dash is a real pain, I resorted to disconnect the wiring to the BCM and paid a much lower price to a Car Alarm installer to put an inexpensive alarm that comes with its own remote. In that way I use the new remote to lock-unlock and the original one to set the original alarm-inmobilizer. Amclaussen.

Keyless remote and door panel lock and unlock are are not working


At least one of your door ajar switches are sticking. If you have tried lubing them,then the switch needs to be replaced. This is causing most of your concerns. Try one door at a time to see if the light goes off. The most common switch is the driver's door.Good luck.

The drivers door opens with key remote but other doors will not open without unlocking the passenger door from inside. Just bought the car today and there is not a operators manual - can you help? Pete


How To Do It!
Time Required:
10 seconds Tools Needed:
  • One of your keyless entry remotes Procedure:
    By default, the Focus Keyless Entry system requires you to press the unlock button twice to unlock all the doors, as the first press only unlocks the driver's side door. You can change this. 1) Stand within remote range of your car 2) Hold down both the lock and unlock buttons SIMULTANEOUSLY for about 5 seconds. The horn will chirp and lights will flash to signal that you have altered the setting. You can repeat this procedure to switch between "one press" mode and "two press" mode.
