2002 dodge stratus computer problem

I have a 2002 dodge stratus, and have owned it for a short time, the car just stopped working. the check engine light stayed on , then the radio would cut off out of nowhere. my car eventually stopped locking, and then one day at a red light, the car just stopped. since it's been broken we've had further problems, such as the window going down and not coming up, the alarm coming on and we couldn't cut it off without disconnecting the battery. we've had a scanner hooked up to it and it says the car is fine. other people who have had similar problems say it's the security system that has locked the car down. can you help me??

Well if it has a secuirity system then sure.. does it?
did you read the operators guide yet (in the glove box) or free online?
it shows how to shut it down.
the first thing to do , is tell the helper, all things electical that are dead, dim, or malfunctioning
that first thing is , head lights. headlite by law must work with keys in the pocket.s

My guess lacking hands on work, is this is a ELECTRICAL power distrubution problem.
clean the battery terminals. remove neg . lug first and put back last is the rule.
btw any tech, or ASE mechanic can find the cause in about 5m.
he uses a voltemeter to see if power is good.
if not, we fix bad power first. 12vdc power.

SOURCE: 1998 Camry, turn ignition to On kills electical system

This is a Direct Fault Caused by the Alarm System Starter Kill. Do you have an Alarm Override Switch???? You may need the Dealership to Reset the Alarm if not.

SOURCE: Alarm haywire, can't override anti-theft system or turn on car

The Alarm on my Mercedes ML320 sounded every night, then it started doing it more often, Showed it to the dealer he says it's the 'Tow Sensor', that needs to be repaced. $700, down the drain. I have already started hating this car, it eats $500-600, every 6 months...

SOURCE: 2002 aztek security light comes on, the radio

Same thing happened to me.
You will have to take it to the shop and have a dealer fix it.
It is what they call the "cluster" up by the firewall behind the engine that controls all the functions of the car.

SOURCE: 02 VW Jetta locks, remote, lights, windows stopped working

Same problem with an '03 Golf--remote entry, power windows, and interior lights stopped working. This was easily fixed by replacing fuse #14, (10 amp), located in the driver's side fuse block.

Why would my check engine light come on and speedometer stop working at the same time on my 99 dodge stratus?


there is a code set in the pcm(computer). it could be a problem with the vehicle speed sensor(VSS) that would cause the speedometer to stop working turning on the check engine light to get things checked out.

Overheating dodge stratus


Do a Compression Test on the Engine and see if you have a Blown Head Gasket. Chances are that is what is causing the Overflow... Exhaust Pressure is getting into the Cooling system

My 2002 Dodge Stratus ES idles rough while in gear. My check engine light is not on.


First I would try some fuel injector cleaner, if that does not help, then I would check and change plugs and wires. It also may be time for oil change, and air filter.

ck the coolant level, if low, top off and ck for leaks. then see if the heat comes back. if coolant level is good and engine temp guage is in the middle, flush heater core. if engine temp is too low, replace thermostat.
