1995 stratus,2.5 get a clicking sound like a dead battery, but have changed the battery, starter and checked most of the wiring.
had previous problem with car not shifting out of first untill i turned it off
Did you replace the starter relay yet ?
A quick and repeated clicking sound, like a mini machine gun firing sound is usually a dead battery or bad electrical connection, but it could also be a bad starter relay.
You sound experienced enough to know if you see a corroded wiring connection this would be a sign of a bad connection.
Are you sure the new battery has enough charge in it to turn the car over? Try jump starting it just in case.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Check the fuse,relay? When you turn the Key on, do you see a security light and it goes out. Dodges will kill the starter after 3 unsuccessful security fails. If all that is good, you will need to start checking wires and the ignition switch. You'll need a volt/ohm meter.
Sounds like a dead battery, check that and then check your fuses. Sounds like your battery is dead, or has a bad connection. One other thing to check is your security setting, if your car was jumped recently it could have corrupted your computers programming, which means have your cars memory reflashed
Check fuses, look at engine compartment fuse box, finda ASD relay swap it with horn relay. Try starting in neutral with foot on brake pedal(neutral saftey switch maybe bad). Check power at starter big wire(Need 12v+) check small wire while someone cranks car for you, you need a 12v+ while cranking, then it will go dead while not cranking. Cycle key-fob lock unlock, manually lock unlock driver's door(anti-theft problem). Check for faulty after market alarm system. (disabling starter).
Check the battery voltage your battery may be dead, or the starter is no good. Check for power and ground at the starter and check the signal wire to make sure you have 12 volts when cranking. If all checks out good then the starter is no good.
check resistance in the wires to the starter if battery is fully charged it should work fine, put a volt meter on the battery and see what the voltage is. from the positive on the battery to the positive on the starter. If you lose any voltage between these 2 points replace the wire.same on the ground side. do this while the car is being cranked. there should be no voltage drop until after the starter. many people account this kind of problem to the starter when in the first place it was a wiring issue in the beginning.
