Question about 1998 Dodge Stratus

Car won't start clicking sound

I turn the key and a clicking sound happens. The headlights work but the radio doesn't. Could I just replace the battery or is it the solenoid?

    i did charge the battery but yet it still does it. Maybe the battery is dead for good?

Sounds like a battery to me
check the voltage in the battery
try putting a battery charger on it

    that would be a good guess have the auto parts house load test it for you and decide then to buy a new one

My plymouth breeze won't start, won't make a sound, but my lights and horn still works , help me.


any real answer yet? did the problem ever get resolved? i have the same problem with my sister's car. too cold to diagnose tonight, but will post the solution probably tomorrow. since the lights and heater works, but ignition and radio arent getting power, my first guess is there's probably a fried fusible link which controls the 2nd accessory power to the ignition switch. will post a solution soon.

All warning lites are on but my car won't start


The following are to only to be recognizes as suggestions. With all the dash lights on this is one signal to narrow the variables preventing the car from starting. First thing I would do is check all the fusses, if they are good then go and turn off all accessories (radio, a/c, fans). then turn the key into the starting position and listen for a click noise. If the sound doesn't occur most likely the solenoid needs replacement. When the sound does occur the there are more variables. Low voltage (bad battery, battery cables loss or carotid). If they check out then this would be the last suggestion available. With the knowledge of the hazards would be to checked the started armature and brushes by jump the solenoid, if the starter drive doesn't spin then the start needs replacement, if it does it's beyond my knowledge and I'd be on my way to a professorial.

check to make sure yu have 12v at the battery, once you do turn the ignition to start, if nothing, check the fuse and relays that control ignition, if all is good then the click sound is coming from the starter, have the solenoid replace.
