I believe I may have had a similar problem. I have a 2001 Dodge Stratus ES with a 2.7L V6. I just recently finished doing a complete engine rebuild. Upon putting the entire thing back together, I tried to start the engine but to my dismay, only heard a fast loud clicking sound coming from under the engine. I determined the sound to be coming from the starter. After a few hours of tinkering, I removed the starter and found that the thin aluminum starter-to-bell-housing gasket was warped and since it only mates on the edge of the bell housing, I t had warped inward and was jammed against my flywheel. I resolved the problem by pulling the gasket out and using wire clippers to cut off the useless half of the gasket that was doing nothing but jamming the flywheel. I replaced the half of the gasket that actually mates the two surfaces and like magic, the car started on the first try. I've been driving the car for about 600 miles now on a freshly rebuilt engine and have yet to notice any problems. Best of luck to you.

Need to check the condition of the battery. Use a volt meter and check the voltage before trying to start the motor. Have someone to try to start the motor while you check the voltage on battery at the same time. If the voltage dropps to either a 10 or less, replace the battery. If the battery is 4 years old or older then replace it. Hope this will help you.

2001 dodge stratus no crank no start from ignition


When you use the ignition key you activate both the starter and ignition circuits. When you jump the starter motor all you do is crank the engine - you have not energized the ignition so car will not start.

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

first off does the car have an anti theift system?
Also make sure that the starter is getting 12 volts on the large wire, put multi-meter on the S term/purple or small wire on the starter try to start the car and make sure you are getting voltage there also. I'll recheck this post later on to see how you are doing.

2001 Dodge Stratus wont start


first you want to make sure your engine is not seized, do this byy taking a wrench and turning the engine manually with the crank shaft, thats the one all the ay on the bottom, if it does not move your engine seized.

if it is not seized, check all of your battery cables to make sure they are not corroded or greasy, as an extra measure you may want to clean the neg cable at the block to make sure it is getting connection.
