Check battery first. If battery is good, charge it and your vehicle should start, The symptons your having are indication of a bad charging circuit. When you start it leave the Negative battery loose enough to pull off after it is running, if it continues to run then it was a bad connection somewhere in the circuit or your regualtor, an internal part of the alternator is bad allowing the current to drain in you battery slowly over time when the engine is running. If battery checks good remove alternator and take to an autoparts store and have them check it. Generally most vehicles have a battery or charge light on the dash that will be lit.

Why would a 2000 Stratus rough idle then die?


if now it won`t start it could be a spark(ignition)problem, check for spark at the plug. you should check for a code in the pcm this may help, not all codes set the check engine light. could also be a bad fuel pressure problem.

Sounds like a short in the electrical system. Maybe even just a loose ground wire. On the other hand...It could just as easily be a bad ECM (BRAIN)! Warranty still in tact? I hope so. Diagnostic at a certified Jeep shop... Good Luck!

What does the auto shut off fuse do? 92 Jeep Wrangler is having start up problems.


The auto shutdown relay in your vehicle is controlled by the computer. If the computer does not see a signal from the crank or cam sensor, it will turn off power to the relay which in turn shuts off power to the fuel and ignition system. Unlike those in many passenger vehicles, it's not connected to an impact sensor. (as jeeps are off road vehicles as well as being transportation, if they had an impact sensor, they would be prone to shutdown when traveling over rough off road terrain)
The fuses to the relay are affected by shorting or overload of any components they serve, or by a problem with the relay itself.

1998 Jeep Wrangler Electrical Short in Steering Column?


I had a similar problem with my 2000 Jeep TJ and I found the problem in the wiring harness under the hood.several wires were corroded and almost burnt off.If you remove the black tape which keeps the harness bundled together and if you see evidence of "green" type powder or "gook" it's most likely where the wires have faulted.
