    Nope....didn't the possibilities are that maybe the timing belt is gone...don't have time right off the bat to check....other thing is is to do a light check with the crank sensor disconnected and simple turning the key off then....wait for a flash or no flash and then go from there.

    Okay.....after ten months of troubleshooting and half of that was not done due to poor weather, I finally broke down and took my Stratus in (towed). $89 for diagnostics....1.5 hours for labor on repairing burned wires that were against the firewall side of the motor....fixed and placed conduit around the car runs fine now.....wasted all that money on were correct, but it was because the wires going TO the sensors were toast.

Are any trouble codes stored? Is there power to the ASD relay? You likely have a blown fusible link or corroded terminal under the fuse box.
