It has lost 2 of one things fuel or spark first get some starting fluid you can pull out the mass air flow sensor if it comes out and spray it in there if not just spray it directly to your throttle body then see if it start if it does and then dies you lost fuel if it doesnt then you lost spark and 95 percent of the times its a bad distributor but in the case of how new your vehicle is you proabbly have coil on coil packs

SOURCE: my 1997 dodge stratus 2.4l 4cylinder wont start

check your relay box (under the hood black box) for corrosion, just had that on my van and it was a blown relay fuse from a bad connector. Also there might be an issue with the distributor itself (the thing the coil conects to) as that is symptomatic of that. To start- and for sake of ease- wiggle the black box after reseating the fuses (not the clear top ones yyou can see them blown without removing) give the box a good wiggle and a tap or two (not he-man taps mind you) while someone tries to start it. if this all is useless please let me know.

SOURCE: 98 Dodge Stratus won't start

Best place to start is with "check engine light". Put vehicle in park, foot on brake, and cycle key on, off, on, off, on, then wait with pen & paper ready to read flashes of check engine lamp. Will be a 2 digit code each time. For example, flash, short pause & flash, will be 11, or flash, flash, short pause, flash, flash would be 22. In between trouble codes you'll get a little longer pause, then it will start to flash again if more than one code, which is quite possible. Also note that I say key to on, not start, just on.(normal run position) Then get back to us and we'll be able to better help you.

SOURCE: location of a 2003 dodge stratus horn, also not loud enough

Horns are usually in front of the radiator and behind the grill--look for two of them, one on each side. Make sure they both sound. If only one works, there is a significant reduction in sound level. There may be road debris stuffed into the horn's throats--poke a hooked stiff wire into the throats and see if anything comes out. Most are sealed and can't be taken apart to clean--replacement is about the only recourse. (look in a wrecking yard for replacements)

My Dodge will not turn over,so I thought I might be out of gas.It was making the sounds of being out of gas but was not.Now it will not even try to click over.All it does when you turn the key is continue...

In a 2000 Status and older you remove the front left drivers side tire. Your is most likely the same. There is a cover to the front of the wheel well. Remove it and you will find your Battery. Remove it charge it or replace it. Now with a fully charged battery. Remove gas cap put your ear next to open fuel fill. And see if you can hear the pump running. You will need someone in the car to turn the key on. But don't try to start just to on position. If you don't hear the fuel pump it may need replaced. Get you owners manual out & find fuel reset. Also check all fuses. Check again. If fuel pump was not working but is now start the car. If it don't start Stop!
Trying to start if you have dropped the timing belt may cause engine damage.

1997 Dodge Stratus, unknown roar

Try replacing the front end wheel baring(s) If it is a roar that you can hear resonating from the windows, this is most likely it.
