    there is no common issue on this problem, it is most likely a shorted engine wiring harness, remove everything that obstructs the view of the harness and start looking for area's where the harness may have rubbed through and shorted to the engine.

My 1999 Dogde Stratus 2.4 cyl. keeps blowing the fuse that makes the car start. Replacing the fuse is becming costly and is annoying. What might be the reason this is happening?


if you can get to a parts store have them test the amperage drain of the starter while cranking..if its too high.. replace it..after a while the starter brushes get worn to the point where they cover more armature conacts than they should and will draw up to double what is normal for that car.. also if its not mounted right it will drag.. using way more power to work..see what happens and repost findings..otherwise you may need a hevy circiut breaker in place of that fuse..be aware of any smoking wires and potential fire hazard..

Blowing starter fuse


check ignition wires to starter relay and check electrical wires to starter see if wires shorting out to ground see if any wires exposed or look burned touching engine or body shorting to ground that will cause fuse to blow.

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.

My 1999 dodge stratus did the same thing. Its a short in the starter solenoid its attached to the starter. all you have to do is change the starter.

1996 Dodge Stratus keeps blowing fuse to starter!


Need to look at symntec and see if there is a relay on the starter. Which there most likely is. and it is bad. Look at the fuse and see if there is another wire going from the fuse to a relay,if so replace that relay.

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.
