Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Radio, Power Door Locks, Power Rear Mirrors, etc Do Not Work

I drained my battery by leaving my lights on. I then jumped my car but accidentally put the black cable on the positive red terminal and the red cable on the negative black cable. I then changed them and got my car to start. My car still holds a charge so the battery may be ok. However, my power door locks, my radio, my power mirror adjustors, and probably a few other things do not work now. I looked at fuses and I think they are all ok. People are telling me it is probably the body control module or another module and it is going to be super expensive. Can I buy a used one and have it put on? Do I need to pay for an electrical diagnostics first? Would a used body control module computer work with my car? Any recommendations??? Please help.

Interior lights, radio, power mirors, remote door lock and power truck release do not work at all. Replace fuse and still dont work. Any ideas? Thanks


it is your body control module. . did not mix it up with the computer. the bcm runs every thing inside the car locks/radio/mirrors /etc.. in your car it is part of the fuse box under the dash

Power door locks do not work unless the ignition switch is on, radio and dome lights also do not work.


look for another fuse box in or under dash. still sounds like you have a blown fuse. look in owners manual for all fuse box locations,including underhood electrial center. good luck.

My 1993 940 non-turbo just dies when running as if the alternator is bad. However, the alternator has been replaced. It still dies and needs to be jumped. When jumped, it'll run for a bit then die a...


OK the battery in good charge should be at 12.5 volts ( as measured with a voltmeter across the terminals) When the engine is running you should expect the reading to be about 14 volts. Put the lights on ( a load on the battery) and the voltage can go as high as 14.5v. Switch everything off (I mean everything..radio etc) and disconnect the negative terminal to the battery. Now put the meter in ammeter mode and measure the current between the negative terminal and the cable that is now disconnected. It should be really very low current (milliamps at most), switch on the lights to show ourself what that current drain looks like. If the residual current looks significant take out each fuse in turn and return it noting on pen and paper any drop in current when the fuse is out. This process will identify the circuit that is draining the battery. Check the wires and junctions in this circuit for shorts etc. If its lights try removing bulbs until the current drain stops If possible leave the fuse out over night on this circuit and see if this effects the battery's ability to charge and stay charged.
