Battery Problems with 2001 Dodge Stratus

Hi, my 2001 Dodge Stratus , 4 cylinder car is having battery problems.

It started with the radio. Like we turn on the car, and it works the first time, but after the car is on, we can't change stations and even when we shut the car back off, the same station with the same volume is on the next time we start, even if we press the power switch off, and still won't let us change the station.

So we disconnected the battery manually and got the radio to go off, but now it has the problem. We bought a brand new battery, and the car still won't stay on. The batter light blinks and it doesn't make sense because we just bought it. The cables are fine, I checked them.

I just don't know what it could be. We even took it to the local dealership adn the problem still exist!

Help!

Wont start...


Need to check the condition of the battery. Use a volt meter and check the voltage before trying to start the motor. Have someone to try to start the motor while you check the voltage on battery at the same time. If the voltage dropps to either a 10 or less, replace the battery. If the battery is 4 years old or older then replace it. Hope this will help you.

2002 Dodge Stratus, Start Problem/ Electrical?


First thing I would do, is remove, clean,inspect & tighten all battery connections including & especially the other end of my negative connection. Also any connections to a power distribution box, that is usually found near the battery. In your explanation, you say when it does start, everything works normal, does that include radio & clock?

2001 Dodge Stratus WOn't Start


Proper way to jump your car is to attach the jumper cable clamps to the marked posts on your car...on the vehicle that is jumping you, attach the positive clamp to the positive post and the negative clamp to some piece of metal on the vehicle...can even be a screw as long as it sparks a little (grounding). Don't connect the clamp to the negative post.
