Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus

1998 Dodge Stratus

When my wife tried starting her car there was no ignition function. I checked the fuses under the hood and found the fuel ignition starter fuse was blown. I changed the fuse and tried starting car, the car would begin to start but the fuse would only blow again. Is there any troubleshooting I can do to narrow or possibly find the reason for the fuse blowing out.

I think you have corroded wires around the fuel pump harness creating a short circuit which is probably blowing the fuse.

It just wont start i turn the key and there is nothing the fuel pump comes on but nothing else and i have tried everything i can think of. the only way to start it is by doing a rolling start.


Check signal wire from starter to either solenoid or start relay. Make sure signal wire is connected to starter properly. One side of the start relay leads to the starter the other to the ignition switch. Check sinal wire is connected. If so test signal wire w/ tester. Ohms setting. Test relay ohms setting. Relays usualy dont go bad. Test ignition switch w/ tester. DC voltage 12 volts or greater. Black terminal to neg or ground. Red terminal to ignition switch side of relay/solenoid. Turn ignition swich to start look for voltage reading. Depending on the vehicle it could be anywhere from 6 to 12 volts. If no voltage reading somthing has failed on the ignition switch side of relay. A relay is simalar to a fuse and will be housed w other fuses under the hood. Also all fuses should be checked. This can be done w the ohms setting on tester without removing the fuse. Look at the top of the fuse there are exposed points that allow the tip of each lead to contact the fuse. Only some fuses are like this. Remember signal wire or fuses this is probably going to be your problem.

No power to ignition harness


Under your hood close to the battery you'll find a fuse box. It should be a 40 or 60 amp fuse large ki.d

1998 dodge stratus fuse fuel pump ignition keeps blowing out i replaced it an still keeps blowing out?


The fuel pump is burned out or a wire is shorting to ground. If the car was working fine then the fuse burned out then it is probably the fuel pump..

I have a 2004 dodge stratus that has power to lights but does not turn over when i try to crank even after jumping it off.


Hi.

Check ignition switch fuse. This is a 20 Amps. see that it has not blown. In 2004 Fuse should be nr 8 in the power box under the hood (newer models #24).

Once you are sure that battery, fuse and wires are OK, check starter and ignition switch. Check if there is 12V to starter while cranking. If there is power and the starter motor does not turn, then the motor is gone.
If there is no power to starter motor when you crank, then the ignition switch located inside the steering column may need replacement. Before repairing, try reading error codes with a code scanner.

i would check for loose or broken grounds to the dash on the fire wall (located under the hood by wiper motor/hvac assembly) also sometimes the instrument cluster gets dirty/loose connection. if so remove cluster and clean connectors and reassemble. try the grounds first.
