Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus

2 Answers

My friend has a 2004 Dodge Stratus and it will not start. Instead, there is an annoying clicking or tapping noise when the key is turned. Is that a problem with the alternator or battery?

Sound as if battery is dead. Battery will need to be checked and recharged. If battery checks out as good, might want to remove alternator to have it checked to be sure that the alternator is also good.

Sounds as though you have a weak battery, try jumpstarting the vehicle.

Possible starter motor problem. Try tapping the starter motor with something as you turn the key to the crank position. If it starts or makes any noises, suspect a starter. If no help, you will have to check for start power directly at the starter solenoid and diagnose from there

Key won't turn in the ignition


if you tap on the lock cylinder with a small hammer it may jar it enough to get it to turn.....to replace the tumblers you will need to remove the lock cylinder and then disassemble it. each tumbler has a certain number on it and will need replaced with that same number. it is easier to have it dealer or locksmith do it.
