ON most engines there is only on pulley as part of the harmonic balancer. It is the on that has the rubber between the pulley and the center bit on the crank. Any other pulleys are normally bolted to this pulley on the center hub piece . I'm thinking that the mount bolts have fallen out.

SOURCE: Harmonic balancer for 1999 dodge ram 1500

well if i remember correctly that fan clutch is reverse threads so in other words to loosen it you'll have to turn your wrench clockwise. they do this cuz the rotation of the fan will tighten itself onto the water pump. anyway what i do is leave the serpentine belt on the the pulleys and that will kinda hold them steady whilst you put the "special" wrench on the clutch and pop it loose you'll prolly need a cheater bar to make things easier but not too much or you'll overcome the traction of the belt and it will just slip.

SOURCE: What is the trick to removing the harmonic balancer on a stratus

Theres no trick. It has to be cocked or something from all the pulling. Try tapping it back on, use spraylube on the crank and try again. Good luck.

SOURCE: Installed a new radio in a 2001 dodge stratus se dash lights out

Did you try adjusting the dimmer for your dash lights? Did it feel different - like the knob was no longer connected?? If so, try pressing the knob to re-align it up to the threading to properly seat it. Then try turning it all the way to the right, to the brightest setting. Or try turning the other way if there is still no illumination. Make sure you have the key in the ignition and turned on to the same location where your radio, wipers, and all other accessories work (test to make sure they are working before trying the dash lights). And of course, you need to be out of bright sunlight and in an area where you can clearly see when the dash lights come on, even in the event that they come on very, very dim.

So if this all failed, I hate to say it but it means you gotta take apart your dash which usually means numerous other parts that may overlap. Find a good diagram or step-by-step instructions for your particular model. Then it will be a matter of checking the bulb(s) and making sure any of the wires did not become disconnected or damaged...

Good luck. Taking apart your dash to get behind it cant be any more difficult with your Dodge than it was when I had to do it to a Toyota a couple months ago... I had to remove the console between the front seats to remove the auto shifter assembly that overlapped with the bottom section of the dash...
alot of time and effort all for one little bulb replacement.

Where is the crank shaft sensor located on a 2001 oldsmobile alero


on the 3.4 liter engine, it's behind the harmonic balancer--you have to remove the crankshaft pulley/balancer to see it.

if you have the 2.4 liter, it's just above the oil filter:

How do i get off the big pulley that is right in front of the smaller power steering pulley to get to the timing belt on a v6 2000 dodge stratus?


You have to use a special tool. Auto Zone will loan this tool to you for free. You need a harmonic Balancer puller for Dodge vehicles. I highly recommend you get a Haynes or Chilton's repair manual on your vehicle before finishing this job. It will give you better instructions on how to get the #1 to top dead center and how to line up the marks on the timing gears when you put the new one in.

Need the tool to take the crankshaft off of a 2002 Dodge Stratus


I think you mean the harmonic balancer, which is the pulley mounted at the front of the crankshaft. (You need to remove the engine and all of the pistons to remove the crankshaft itself.) Check your local parts store for a harmonic balancer puller -- I got one from NAPA for about $75 that allowed me to pull the balancer without removing the radiator/condenser.
