Which fuse is for the cigarette lighter in 2005 dodge stratus

If it's for the 4 door sedan, then you want to go under the hood and pop the top of your battery case off. It doesn't take much to do so. Next you'll want locate fuse #2. That's the one that controls the lighter outlet. If you're looking for the 2 door...I have no clue.Here's a link to a free repair guide.

Location of 2.4l 2005 dodge stratus crankshaft sensor

On the Internet there are a lot of different descriptions of where the CRANKSHAFT position sensor is on the 2005 Dodge Stratus sedan 2.4L engine.

it was on the front of the engine, behind/under the starter motor.

- One website said that if the 8th number/letter in your car's VIN number is an X then it is located here (this was true for my car).
- To confirm: See if there is a wire (3 wires together actually) leading under the starter motor (see #2 below for a description of the starter motor's location).

1. Disconnect the positive terminal of the battery. (Turn the wheels all the way to the right, remove/pull back the black plastic cover of the front of the left wheel well, thus exposing the battery, and then unbolt the red positive terminal). You NEED to do this because you'll be working with the starter motor and you don't want to get shocked.
2. Unbolt the starter motor. You can see and access the starter motor from the top. It is situated on the front of the engine block, below the air intake (see the picture). It just has two 15mm bolts on the right side holding it on. You should be able to get a ratchet or wrench to them from the top, or you may even be able to get at them better from below.
3. Lift the starter motor up out of the way. I left all of the wires connected to it, and simply tied it with twine to the plastic air intake above to keep it out of the way.
4. You should be able to clearly see and access the sensor now (see the second picture). It has one bolt, and the plug. *Make sure to put a little oil on the rubber seal of the new sensor before inserting it.
5. Put everything back, in reverse order.

- I believe this applies to model years 2003-2006, and to the 2.4L Chrysler Sebring sedan of the same years.
- You probably don't need to jack your car up for this repair. I had my car up on ramps, but in the end I did everything from the top.
