Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Changing my battery is a *****

Apparently when Dodge was designing the oh so rugged 02 Stratus, they thought it hilarious to take the simple process of taking out a battery and dropping in a new one into hyperspace by hiding the pack by curving the side panel of the car body over it. Forcing you into not only having to remove that side piece, but also the front driver tire, or so says the guy at pep boys who changed my battery for me.

Ah yes and so have all the other manufacturers,they've got just about everything cotrolled by computer,I see so many electrical problems listed here,and the vehicles are so complex electrically that even factory trained techs get clueless,you need a degree in electronics enginerring to figure them out.It's all designed so you have to take your vehicle to the dealer shop,$2000 to $3000 for ans abs computer replace and install.It's a joke,that's alot of why answer these questions is so maybe I can keep at least a few people from being raped by the outrageous prices.That's why I drive an 86 Toyota 4x4,nice and simple...

How to change battery in dodge stratus 2001, is it absolutely necessary to pull the wheel well panel?

Good Morning, unfortunately there is no easy way around that job. You have to raise and support the vehicle, remove the wheel and tire, and then take off the cover in front of the battery. Then undo the hold down and battery cables and pull it straight out. I never thought that changing a battery would ever become such a complicated thing, however they put them under back seats and in trunks too so it really is not all that bad. Hope this is Helpful and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

The headlights/brights on my 02 Dodge Stratus have ceased working. The parking/turn signal lights work. Any thoughts on what could be causing this issue?

Just the high beams? If so, it's probably the bulb itself. If not, (no headlights at all) check for a blown fuse. These fuses are found under the hood at the power distribution center (check your owners manual).

You can replace your own O2 sensor. They require a special socket you can buy at your parts store. Unplug the wiring harness, unscrew the old sensor, screw in the new one and plug in the harness.
