Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus
When my wife tried starting her the car there was no ignition functions, I checked the fuses under the hood and found the fuel ignition starter fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse and tried starting the car, but the fuse keeps blowing out. Is there any troubleshooting I can do to possibly narrow or find potential for fuse blowing. Again it is a 98 Dodge Stratus.
Check the fuel shutoff valve. to see if it is on. press the reset button to do this. if it stays on. The answer could be pinched wires (a short) from the fuse wiring back towards the shutoff valve. if the valve shuts off try checking for current with a test light. if no current . The valve is bad. it seems like a short or open circuit on the fuel system wiring.

Sis had a 1997 Dodge Stratus and experienced issues with the cigarette lighter. Car would not start and I was able to trace an ignition fuse as the problem. Replaced the fuse and the car would attempt to crank but not start and the fuse would burn. Repaired the cigarette lighter and changed the ignition fuse but fuse continued to burnout. Pulled the accessory fuse and car attempted to start without the ignition fuse blowing. Put the accessory fuse back in place and the car started up no problem,
