Question about 2006 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

My 2006 Dodge Stratus is blowing a particular fuse. When I press on the brake pedal it blows the fuse. My radio, dome light, keyless entry and brake lights all stop working when this happens. It's in the shop now and has been there for 4 days. I just really want my car fixed.

My guess is the ground to the rear lights is bad and when you hit the brakes the voltage loops back into the light circuit and overloads it

My 2006 dodge ram 2500 diesel keeps blowing fuse


The Internal light is normally tied to your dash lights on a factory installed radio. Find the main p[lug on the back of the radio and unplug it then try it with a new fuse if it still blows then it is the wiring if it does not blow the fuse when the radio is unplugged, chances are the radio is bad and will have to be repaired or replaced.

I have a 2006 Dodge Stratus and my radio goes on and off while driving and also the heater blows hot air and when the radio goes off the heater blows cold air.. what could this be someone help me please


This could be a wiring issue. The wiring of these components are found under the dash and at some point their wires come close. Check for loose connections or exposed conductors.

Keyless entry, moon roof and door locks dtopped


Well there are more wires behind the radio which may have been unhooked while pulling out your old radio. If you cut any wires and left bare wire exposed its a possibility it could have touched and blew a fuse.

CLock, radio, dome lights, speedometer, keyless entry dont work


Check fuse 8 (10 amp fuse) in the under dash fuse panel. Make sure you have voltage to it on both sides of the fuse.This fuse feeds all of the items you listed.

We have a problem with our 2000 stratus fuse, everytime we push on he brake pedal the fuse blows? What could be the problem?


It sounds like you have whats called "a short to ground" Breaks operate on whats called an open circut, only when you ppress the pedal does it allow the eectricity to flow hence lighting the rear break hights. You have a pinch wire which is grounding the system. Each time you press the pedal it sends the current to that ground shorting the circut and blowing the fuse. Trace the wires in the trunk as best you can and look for any damaged wires(oinched ,stripped, also check the break light socket .

Start by replacing your brake light bulbs. If it still blows the fuse, them your brake pedal switch. If it still happens then you have a shot circuit in your wiring between your fuse panel and your brake lights.
