Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus

2 Answers

My headlights have stopped working on my car. At first it was the passenger side one. Then Saturday, after I used them in the morning due to rain, night both main headlights were dead. Now before this happened I was having (and still having) issue with issue with my interior lights. When I would turn on my headlights the interior lights come on; but they flicker from dim to bright constantly. The issue with the interior light has been going on since 2004. I requested my mechanic to fix it numerous times; but he never did. So I'm trying to find out if the two problems are linked.

SOURCE: Problem with Replacement Headlights

Sounds like you need to contact the people whom you got them from and see what they say. Sometimes those weird euro headlights don't function correctly. You have the same plug, but now you have 2 bulbs instead of 1 drawing juice from the same source. When you double the load, but keep the source the same, you will have problems.

If the ground is good I would take a careful look at the light socket itself. There may be corrosion inside or on the power wire where it goes into the socket or it may just be making poor contact.
You can get a replacement one at any auto parts store. The last one I got was about $10. Get some heat shrink tube to cover your splices, it does a much better job of sealing the splice than tape. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: headlights flicker on and off at times .interior

the first thing to check is if u have a steady ground wire this can cause the flicker so can a low battery that doesnt have it full health a semi attach wire can do the same
to check ur ground look for corrosion at batt post (black wire) follow it to where it mounts clean or replace if needed.

SOURCE: My headlights on my 94 dakota work fine for a

I just had this problem. There was a screw loose on the hi-beam switch. You have to take off the plastic cover on the steering column to get to it. Really simple to fix yourself (5 minutes tops). 4 screws and the turn of a small wrench. Free if you do it yourself, $600 if you take it to the dealer.

Lots of rain water leaking into front passenger foot rest.


Are you certain it is rain water? It could be condensation from the A/C coil that fails to drain out of the drain pan, or possibly coolant from a leaking heater core. If you are certain it is rain water, depending upon the age of the vehicle, and possibly some other things, here are the possible options:

  1. Leaking door gasket.
  2. Leaking windshield seal due to rust
  3. Leaking windshield seal due to improper installation
  4. Leaking windshield seal due to acoustic (sound) over pressure (if you have extreme sound system with heavy bass)
  5. If you have a sunroof, if the drain hose comes down the passenger side door column, it could be leaking into the passenger compartment rather than drain through the floor pan.

Water in rear passenger footwells


I have had water intermittently in the right rear trunk area (below the battery) every since an rear end accident. The dealer tells me that there is a vent back there that gets clogged up or opened up and lets water get in there. Not sure that I believe that, but that's the best explanation that they could give me.

2006 gmc savana brake lights stay on


I have got a Suzuki Alto.
I been having problems lately. When ever it rains the car get flooded inside.
I keep getting a puddle of water by the back and front and under the seat of the passenger side of the feet.
It happen when the car is standing stationary at night and in the evening when it rains and by the morning there is a puddle of water inside. As attached in the picture.
The garage did a get wash but they could not find no leak and fixed the rim of the doors on the passenger side of the door too but it still keep happened and I went back the garage but they have done all the investigation but they still can't seem to find the problem for the water flooding inside of the car.
Can you please help in understanding what else could be the course of this problem.
I look forward to hearing from you.

My headlights is moisturing every time it rains or car wash


Normally the headlights are sealed and filled with an inert gas. The reason for the moisturizing may be due to damaged seal, that's causing it.
There is a large variety of attractive aftermarket covers available for the steering wheel; you can always opt for them.

1998 Lincoln Town Car passenger side headlight low beam only.


Hi Steven, I guess you have checked the fuses? Some time (and I'n not saying this is your problem) the fuses are wired in such a way that if one blows (and the fuse is on the earth side of the circuit) there will be an output, but the circuit will either use the earth through the the other bulb or fail to earth. I would also suggest having a look at the relays and their operation. Lastly, check the earth connections again. Regards John

Rear passenger side wheel/brake locking at first touch of pedal


You possibly have air in your lines. When you bleed them you need to start at the rear passenger, then rear driver, then front passenger and then front driver. If you are certain you have no air in the line then you have a bad brake hose/brake line. Replace this and your problem should go away. If not then the culprit should be the distribution or master cylinder. I hope this helps.
