Question about 1996 Dodge Stratus
If the battery light is on,have the charging system checked to see if the alternator is charging correct.It should read 13.65 to 14.25 volts with engine running at the battery,a little over 12 volts with the engine not running,If the charging system is not charging enough volts,the e c m can not operate correct,and the ignition system can not get enough volts to maintain the volume of kv`s to run the engine,it is not like the older models where the vehicle will run as long as the battery maintains 10 volts to 12 volts.So have this checked out,the running out of fuel,does not have anything to do with this problem you are having,just a coensident.If this was helpful,at all,please let us know,thank you.

If u are going to get a computer buy a rebuilt one, don't trust a junk yard one, they are usually a waste of time and are defective due to water or shock damage, you can buy a rebuilt on the internet. here is a link.
