Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus
My stereo did not want to start anymore. Then a few weeks later the car does not want to start unles we get jumper cables. We went ahead and purchased a new battery, but still having the same problem. It will be fine, but the next day or two we need jumper cables again just to start. Can the radio and problems with the car starting be due to the same problem. Oh yeah, and when we are able to jump start the car, the radio comes back on , the off again.
Could be the radio is drawing current. Get an auto electrician to take a look and find the fault.

First thing I would do, is remove, clean,inspect & tighten all battery connections including & especially the other end of my negative connection. Also any connections to a power distribution box, that is usually found near the battery. In your explanation, you say when it does start, everything works normal, does that include radio & clock?

Start out by replacing the oxygen sensors. The electrical system and fuel delivery depend on the O2 sensor to be in perfect condition. If you still have these flashing and flickering lights after you replaced the O2 sensor then then next thing to replace is the ECU (also known as a PCM or vehicle computer) Click on the link below to view the parts you will need:
