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.

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.

Lights work, but turn key and nothing except brake light comes on but no check engine, etc., and starter won't even click, no check engine light comes on dodge stratus


check the fuse under the hood for your starter and if it is blown replace it however this is only a quick fix as I have just fixed this problem, after time you will continue to blow fuses and the problem is your starter. However check the fuse first and see if it is blown, if so replace try to start your car, if it starts have the starter checked as well as the ignition switch.

My ignition fuel starter fuse blows 2 to 3 times a day on my 98 dodge stratus!


sorry this is not going to make you happy but its a wire shorting out to the negative side of the battery it could be anywhere under the hood, look for any wire that look chaffed, hope this helps regards John

98 stratus won't start


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.
