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.


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.

The fuse that keeps blowing is related to your ignition. Get the faults read at a shop and find what is triggering fault and that will lead you to your problem. It's a whole lot easier than throwing parts at it, and cheaper.

Electrical problem on my 2000 dodge intrepid

Check under the hood at that fuse box there should be a 40 amp fuse in a slot marked "run ign" or some such thing, for about $3.75 if you replace that fuse it should start working again, this just happend to me a month ago.

you need the schematic.20 amps is a serious current.
put a bulb across a blown fuse,and if there is a short,the bulb simply lights.use a 12 watt lamp to limit the current to one amp,then remove lines until the short is gone.
i would get the schematic,and trace back from the fuse.
one problem in automotive is how many people may have worked on a given have to check all previous work..
