Question about 2005 Dodge Stratus
The pressure switch on the accumilator is at fault if you bypassed it and the compressor worked. Remove the plug-in on switch and move plug away from the accumilator. Then with a small wrench or small pliers remove pressure switch. (be sure to grab it at the base as close as possible). The freon will stay in the system after removal of switch ( there is a valve core inside the accumilator DO NOT REMOVE IT) Replace the switch and check to see that a new o-ring is on switch. Use a little refrigerent oil to lubericate the o-ring before installing. Hope this will help you.

I have a 2005 stratus also and it has a chrysler sebring engine in it. I could not believe that. The ac has a relay that will autoshut down the compressor at certain intervals. I thought I was low on freon and charged it and I ended up overcharging and it would not blow cold air anymore. I took the charge back off I put in and it worked fine. It is a fuel saving system that does shut down the compressor even if you have it running full cold. there is no reason changing alternator would cause ac not to work. it could be the pressure switch and then when you added freon it overcharged it and shut down like mine. these engines today are so delicate. mine also had a idle problem with the ac on but ran great at reg speeds. found out it was the plugs and wires after I change the idle air control valve. seems that motor has to have champion platumum sparkplugs and autozone sold me autolite that did not work. Dodge could not figure it out and only did that as a last ditch effort and it worked. hope this helps
