Are the spark plugs and plug wires ok? Worn plugs won't let the engine start like it should. Pushing makes the engine rev up and the spark is stronger as you push but a starter only does so much.

2001 dodge stratus 2.7L wont start, motor turns slowly, rapid clicking sound battery tested at 12.78V. All fuses good

Have the battery load tested by a shop or parts store (free testing there). I am sure you have a defective battery or a failed engine alternator.

" HI " Where is the Voltage Regulator Located on a 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T 3.0

The way to check for an over or under charge is to connect your volt meter to the battery, before starting the vehicle.
You should have a reading of 12.5 to 13 volts. If it's 11.8 like you stated or less, it means battery is not fully charged, or it's bad. Now start the car & check voltage again while running the engine, the voltage should exceed 14+ volts, this means your Alternator is charging, the voltage should drop after battery has been charging for awhile. When you turn the engine off after letting it charge the battery, & if the battery is good, you should now have 12.5 volts to 13 volts.
Now to answer your question, the Voltage Regulator is inside of the Altenator, I believe you xcan take the alternator apart to replace it, or simpler to just replace the complete alternator.

96 dodge stratus wont start starter clicks doesnt turn over..check engine light flashes 5 times then pauses then flashes 5 times and so on.. ideas???

I would have your battery load tested and check your cable connections at the starter and battery.

A bad battery may show 12 volts, but not be able to put out a big enough current for the starter.

The starter could also be bad and giving you the same symptoms. Sounds like the starter solenoid is probably ok, but the starter motor is what could be bad.

If you are handy, you usually can take starters and batteries out of your car and take them to a local parts store to be tested.

96 Stratus, has some power, but won't start. How do I know if this is the starter, a loose connection, or something else? Dash lights and headlights works, but nothing else. It doesn't make a peep when I...

test battery first ,make sure it good,if battery is good then check for power at starter, two wires one has power all the time from batt, now have someone strat hold key in crank position and test for power at small wire, if you have power then starter is no good replace it, hope this helps.

My car wont start/crank and it a 98 dodge stratus

First, try to jump start in, if that does not work, next check the battery cables going to the starter, if they are secure and in good condition, you need to have your starter tested. The problem could either be the starter or the solenoid.
