Unless your radiator is leaking badly, or it is plugged, changing the radiator will likely not solve the problem.
Verify that the cooling fan is operational when the engine is at operating temperature. If not, it may be just a fuse. Also, check that the upper radiator hose gets hot and that you can feel coolant flowing through it, when the engine is fully warmed up. If it doesn't, the thermostat is faulty.
The fuse for the horn should be behind a plastic panel on the driver's side end of the dash board. It will likely be a yellow 20A fuse.
Good Luck!!

No heat in 2001 dodge stratus,changed Thermostat still blows cold air?

Check the coolant level. If its low you wont get any heat. If its full then I would suspect that the temp. selector on the climate control is faulty. Farley easy to replace. Your local you pull parts yard will have one for $20-$35.

2001 dodge status rt 3.0 engine will blow out cold air sometimes. It doesnt seem to be overheating. Do I need to change the therostat.

Thats a very inexpensive route to start with. It blows out cold air when you put your heat on?If so it could also be in the heating unit itself. If your car makes a clicking noise when you switch your heat over from the AC, it could be your temperature contol unit. My wifes car had that issue, and hers is a a mits Galant, but is set up the same as some stratus's.

The heater in my 2004 dodge stratus doesn't blow out hot air while idling, but it does when driving. Could this be the thermostat?

Most of the time this (no heat at idle/heat when driving) is an indication of low radiator fluid. Check the fluid level while the engine is cold and on with the heater on high.

Dodge 99' Stratus Over Heating

Overheating going down the road is usually caused by a faulty/clogged radiator. There isn't enough flow/cooling effect. Check for debris in the fins, or replace the radiator.

No heat or defrost in 1996 dodge stratus

Seems like the heater core is possibly plugged. I would try flushing the heater core before changing it. Look in the engine compartment on the cars right side. Find where two cooling line go into the firewall. Roughly 1" - 1 1/2" in size. Disconnect these lines. You will loose fluid, so put a container under the car. Use a garden hose and flush the core in one side and make sure the water flows out the other. Then repeat this process to flush the opposite way. If the water does not flow easily, then there is something stuck inside the core, then it will have to be replaced.

Sounds to me you either needs a theromstat or water pump. Its one of the two.
