Question about Dodge Stratus

I have a 2000 dodge stratus. serpentine belt

I have a 2000 dodge stratus. the steering wheel and brakes will lock up and my car will die. however the lights will still be on so i dont belive it is the battery. if i sit long enough the car will start back up and i can move on.However this has happened frequently now and i am wondering if it may be because of a bad serpentine belt. what are symptoms of a bad serpenting belt?

Why won't my key turn the ignition for my 2000 Dodge Stratus. The steering wheel is not locked but neither key will turn in the ignition.


Probably aftermarket alarm. Should be a small switch close to it to turn it off. If it were mine, I would remove the system .

How do you replace the serpentine belt on a 2000 Dodge Stratus ES


mcdevito75 here, There should be a diagram of the belt closre to the radiator, then you"ll need a tool to move the tension pully. Best bet, let your local repair shop change the belt.

What belt if breaks can cause the steering wheel to lock, and how complicated is to fix


That would be your power stearing belt. And it can be fairly difficult because all the belt and pulley are very close to the passanger side finder well.

Replacing serpentine belt 2002 dodge stratus


Did this on my 2002 Stratus 2.4L. I agree with other poster, you do have to remove the passenger tire and wheel wall to do it, but the tensioner travels clockwise.
Note: I offer this solely as a description of how I accomplished the task on my vehicle. It should not be taken as me advising anyone else in any way on how or whether they manage to repair their own vehicles.

1) Engaged parking brake, loosened lugs on passenger front tire.
2) Jacked-up and placed jack-stand.
3) Removed piece of black under-carriage which surrounds the oil filter and attaches to front bumper. There are at least 10 plastic push-pins to remove and I managed to destroy half of them in the process.
4) Positoned belt over lower pulleys and tensioner (as best as possible) then used a bungee to hold the top end of belt up while I worked under the car.
5) Used a 3/8 ratchet and inserted into square hole attached to the tensioner, disengaged the tensioner (moves clockwise) then used a brace to keep the ratchet handle in that position.
6) From top, removed bungee and finished placing belt over alternator, checked the position of entire belt, reengaged the tensioner, and replaced wall and wheel.

Power steering noise


Sounds to me that the power steering belt is loose. If it is a 2.4 litre engine it has two serpentine belts. You should replace the belts especially if it was smoking.
