Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

My car has radio, lights, and power but wont start?

I went to start my car this morning and it wouldn't turn over at all? When I popped the hood to jump it- I found that a RAT had built a huge nest on top the motor. My car will not take a jump either? When the starter was taken out and tested it worked great. But the car does not turn the starter over at all? Any suggestions? PLEASE help?

Oh boy that's a big problem wiring can be such a pain ,OK do you have dash lights ,if so,their is ignition wire that goes from the base of the fuse box to the starter if you could find it ,trace it all the way to the starter make sure that is no chewed spots on the wire .If there is no lights check bye the battery terminal and trace the big red wire to the fuse box and make sure that your main fuse is not blown, also make sure that the wire is not cut either ,well let me know ,

This is timing, either advanced or retarded and should be controlled by the ECM unit. Check inside distributor for signs of spark shorts. Have you checked for computer codes?

are you leaving anything plugged in, cellphone charger, radar dector, emergency lights, cb, etc, if so unplug all of it that will kill the battery, if not the case, you got a short somewhere

Hi Susie, Turn on the head lights and get someone to observe them while trying to start. If they dim during trying to start, replace the battery. Regards John

1999 Maxima - Sometimes it does not start.


It sounds like you have bad contacts in the starter assembly, next time it wont start tap the starter and try again, it most likely needs a starter replacement.
