Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

I started having problems with my car 3 months ago, its a 2001 dodge stratus. First, it started off by my car not wanting to start, so we thought it was the starter and it wasnt, it was the alternator, then there was some wiring problem and it was coming from the steering colum, so that got changed, problem was still occuring where it doesnt start, so we changed the battery, till this day its still not wanting to start right away and when i turn the key i get that this code (P1684) and i turn the key again and again and after 3-4x's the car starts. I've had an automatic starter on my car for the past 9yrs, could this be causing the problem? I dont know what to do anymore. :-( I love my car. It has a new steering colum, new alternator, new battery. What's next?

    I have a 97 Stratus and had a very similar problem...I replaced a boatload of things to find out the ECM was bad...



    Before replacing the ECM, it ran about a week with a couple of sensor changes...then a battery change....but ultimately it ended being the ECM.

It dies out when im driving,and still has power


The crankshaft sensor is a common problem for your situation. When you have a problem, it won't start as the engine is hot. Open the hood, let it cool then you can start it again. Have a shop diagnose on the crank shaft sensor and replace it. Good luck.
