You have to count the number of flashes between delays. For example, the light flashes twice, pauses briefly, then flashes 4 times. This problem code is 24. The end of the trouble code is 55, which is 10 flashes so you have at least 2 trouble codes on your vehicle.

Did you let it run with cap off for long time with heater on while you refilled system? Usually let rad fan come on and off 2 or 3 times with cap off to bleed system properly.

Jeff: Go to "Allpar dot com" website and look for a complete list of codes for the older Chryslers. From mine I remember code 34 as having at least two posible meanings: a) EGR Solenoid circuit problema, and b) Speed control problema. Code 21 means a problema in the Oxygen sensor. Amclaussen.

You need to get the engine trouble codes by performing the "keydance" or using a code reader, then start checking fuel pressure at pump and regulator. Best luck. Amclaussen.

Stratus confusion


This is a real common problem on caravan. But I haven't seen it on stratus. But it might be the same thing. When it won't start the gauge won't work at the same time? When it does this does slapping the side of the dash make the gauges work and then the car starts? Try this

98 Dodge Stratus won't start


Best place to start is with "check engine light". Put vehicle in park, foot on brake, and cycle key on, off, on, off, on, then wait with pen & paper ready to read flashes of check engine lamp. Will be a 2 digit code each time. For example, flash, short pause & flash, will be 11, or flash, flash, short pause, flash, flash would be 22. In between trouble codes you'll get a little longer pause, then it will start to flash again if more than one code, which is quite possible. Also note that I say key to on, not start, just on.(normal run position) Then get back to us and we'll be able to better help you.

2000 Dodge Stratus


The first thing I would do is check the Transmission Control Module (TCM) for stored codes. To call up codes, cycle ignition switch on, off, on, off and on within 5 seconds. Stored codes will be indicated by flashes of the check engine lamp. The codes will be indicated as two digit numbers, with a four second pause between codes. An example of a code scan is as follows:
  • Power Loss/Check Engine Lamp illuminated for approximately 2 to 3 seconds as a bulb check, then turns off.
  • Lamp flashes 2 times, pauses, then flashes 6 times.
  • Lamp pauses for approximately 4 seconds.
  • Lamp flashes 3 times, pauses, then flashes 1 time.
This would indicate that code 26 and 31 are stored. The lamp will continue to flash until all stored codes have been displayed.
If we are lucky we'll get some codes to work with. This will show you any transmission codes.

I found that a code 31 on a 94 Voyager indicates an evaporative emissions problem, but I'm not sure whether that code applies to your car as well. Have the ECU scanned at AutoZone and see what comes up. They'll do it for free and will give you the codes. Then you can post them up and we'll see what we can do about them.
