    yes I took it to Auto Zone, they ran the test on it and told me it was the Oxygen sensors. Yes the check engine light comes on and then goes off and keeps doing this, It is also runnig rather rough all of a sudden, it doesn't like to get up to speed and has a hard time taking off at stop lights, but thought that might be it needing some tranny fluid, just bought it from a woman who hadn't even replaced the battery in 3 years so tryin to figurre it all out now.

Why what is it doing and did you have check eng light on ? and did you plug in a OBD 2 scanner to retrieve those fault codes that would indicate that specific "code" was the trouble= O2 sensor/or sensors

    you have to have check engine light on in order to retrieve the fault code with a OBD 2 scan tool.Emission sensor will do that on and off deal with you! also if your battery is dead and not charging this will cause you problems as well if a fuse is blown what ever fuse is in that link then what ever the fuse maybe for that accessory will not work!period

Blowing Fuse in 1995 Dodge Stratus after accident

You must have damaged the wiring loom to these items and the probable cause is the live wires are earthing to the car body or other wires. Assuming you do not have a workshop manual it will be a case of tracing the wires from each item and inspecting the casing and wiring condition all the way to the fuse board.Good Luck

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

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.
