    I have a 2000 Dodge intrepid, and the lights flicker so much it constantly drains my battery..its cursed! Havent found a solution yet.

    same thing - so far it hasn't stopped the battery or car.

    is there an aftermarket radio in it

    I had this problem, it was a precursor to the car battery dying altogether. Turns out - the wrong size battery was installed in the car. Got the correct one put in - its been fine.

    Similar- only dash/radio lights. Been told it is a chronic problem with a ground wire issues somewhere, but noone seems to know where.

    BP misread the initial posting...nothing about the engine stopping so nothing to do with compression, timing....

    And the odds of a weak battery causing lights in the dash, even the headlights to flicker are miniscule- bad connections do that, bot bad/weak batteries.

Have any of you guys checked the battery to see if it is charged enough and holding a charge. To do this check you need to use a voltage tester and the reading should be around 12.4 volts. If not make sure the battery is full with distilled water and then charge the battery.

Next you need to immediatly check to see if the alternator is charging the system adequately. If not replace it before you kill the battery again.

Also clean the terminals on the battery and on the connectors even if they don't look like they need it.

If the battery still dies you may need to replace the battery because it lost its ability to keep an adequate charge.

    I forgot to add if the problem consists then you may have a timing problem, compression problem, etc. Anything that may lead to the engine not to spin the serpentine belt enough to power the alternator.

2002 Intrepid. Turn the key and hear one click. Dash lights come on but hear nothing else.


Do a quick check on battery, get someone to watch the headlights turn them on and then turn the key to the start position, if the lights go out then your battery is either completely discharged or has gone bad.

2002 dodge intrepid se 2.7 engine light on got


Anytime a Chrysler product of this year has a check engine light, get it to a dealer immediately. The 2.7 liter engine is notorious for oil sludging. This can be a dangerous problem that can destroy the engine.

Your problem may have nothing to do with oil sludging, and I hope it doesn't; but don't take a chance.

Google "Chrysler engine oil sludging."
