Used to be vacuum controlled, but now the doors inside the heater/AC suitcase (housing under the dash for the heater and a/c unit) are electrical rheostat controlled, and tend to give problems. These rheostats open and close the doors used to control where hot air and cold air is tunneled to the dash vents. (the hot to cold dial on the dash is a rheostat which controls an electric motor connected to a door, which opens for hot air, and closes for cold air). The rheostat or motor, it controls, has gone bad. Find an independent garage that you like, (NOT the stealership) and the price to fix will be a lot cheaper and more reliable. Good Luck

SOURCE: speedometer not working on 2002 dodge ram 1500

Removed cluster from dashboard and unplugged & turned the whole cluster clockwise very slowly and needle started moving from 150 mph back down to 0 mph when rotation was completely done. Kept cluster upright while re-installing and plugged back in the plugs on back and everything was fine. Called local Dodge dealer and told me would take 30-45 minutes to reset and would cost approximately $70 to fix. Took about 8-10 minutes of my time and saved myself $70. This may not work for everyone but this was my amazing quick fix thanks to GOD for giving me this thought to try this.

SOURCE: 2003 dodge stratus heater fan does not blow

The car most likely has a blower motor resistor, if it is like my 2004 dodge dakota, you're lucky, when mine quit it was very cold and the first portion of the resistor burned out, taking out all four fan speeds. Enough about me, lets get to your problem. the blower motor resistor is located inside the HVAC duct, (heating, ventalation, and cooling) on the passenger side footwell area. it is accessed from inside the passenger compartment. It has multiple resistor circuts. thats why you lost the two lower speeds and then the two faster speeds. You can test it with a multi meter to see if it is open. it looks like this when removed. fb36770.jpg
They are about 33.00 from rockauto.com. When you find the conector on the duct that is conected to this resistor block, remove the conector with a small screwdriver, you have to find the lock tab and gently lift it up and pull on the conector to remove the conector. remove one screw and it will come out. most times you can tell if they are bad by looking at them. if you cant test it have someone you know that can do it. I am 99% positive that that is your problem. unless the conector came loose. Pleas let us know if this was helpful as i strive to improve helping others on a daily basis. Good Luck! and You'll be warm again soon.getimage.jpggetimage.php.jpg

SOURCE: location of thermostat on 2002 dodge stratus 2.7 eng.

The thermostat on this car is located on the passenger side lower Engine block. Follow the lower radiator hose and it will lead you right to it. The Wheel and splash guarding need to be removed as well as the Alternator to gain access to the housing bolts. It about a 3 hour job to replace thermostat.

2002 dodge stratus...radio does not work, clock is on and working, but no sound. instaled another factory radio same problem. installed aftermarket radio same problem. fuses checked, all good.


There is more than one fuse for the radio. I know that one controls the power and there is also one for the memory and sometimes they have a third fuse as well. Take a look in your owners manual for the location of the fuses. \hope this helps

make sure thermostat switch working properly, the thermostate sensor sense the temperature and kick on the cooling fans on and off, also make sure both fans are working properly. assuming every thing is working properly, check the dip stick to make sure there is no water mix in the oil, another sign of leaking head gasket will also will cause the engine run a bit hotter than normal.
