Hi Ellen. The battery on your stratus is located in the left (driver side) fender in front of the wheel. There are battery terminals under the hood though, which you can use to jump start or charge the battery from. If the battery needs to be replaced, the easiest way would be to remove the left front wheel and then an access panel in front of the wheel. The wheel does not need to be removed, according to the manual, but it does make things easier. This is a 30 minute procedure to remove the battery. All this info and more is available in the cars owners manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download it for free at this site: there is a diagram of the under hood terminals.

alternators need a voltage from the battery to work as they have no residual magnetism in the fields . If it won't keep it's charge then have a load test done on the batter as it is most probably dead

2004 dodge stratus, there is a small fan located under the air intake system that is running with the switch off. this is killing the battery.

this fan is meant to' run on' after turning ignition off to cool down the fuel injectors etc so the fuel does'nt evaporate whilst the engine cools down .Two things here 1. Does the fan NEVER stop, it may run for 5-10 mins at most , if it runs longer than this then the timer relay may need replacing .2 If the fan goes off and then your battery is flat later i'd say it was the condition of the battery at issue as may not be holding the charge , so you can get the battery condition checked easily , if it is the battery at fault get the alternator charge rate checked as well as this may be the cause of poor battery condition .Hope that helps

I have a 2002 dodge stratus. The battery light comes turns on when I am driving . When I shut the car off it goes off when I resart the car. It does come on all the time. The battery seems to be charged

You need to have your alternator tested, and also verify that all of your electrical connections to the alternator and battery are secure , and not corroded.

The battery light means that your charging system is not working. You can verify this: Get a voltmeter, and check your battery voltage with the car not running. It should be approx 12.6volts. Start your car, and check the voltage across the battery again. It should be a little over 14 volts. If you don't have at least 14 volts, your alternator is not working.
