The battery may be fried, if the battery is bad the electronic loop required for the alternator will not operate; in short your car will have no electrical power after the jumper cables are pulled. I'd check the battery.

I hope this may have assisted you,

if the battery light is on you still have a fault in the charging system, you need to test your alternator,with the car running to ensure its charging 14v, and id charge the battry up manually to see if it's holding a charge.
you could have a broken wire problem, this could prevent the car from charging, but id test both thos eitem to make sure they work first.

My 2006 dodge stratus wont start. it just died on me while i was driving. i changed the spark plugs and it would act as if it wants to start but wont turn over. it says P0340 on the diagnostic. pleases...

Battery or alternator? is probably the problem......try jumping it and if it still dies replace alternator...but dont forget to check all wires coming from battery and cleaning them....

Battery is being drained when car is off

The problem sounds like either theres a dead short somewhere or something electrical is staying on and constantly drawing power from the battery. Start at the battery cables, look for any signs of damaged or burnt insulation or even excessive oxidation around the terminals and connectors. Walk around the car, under the hood, inside the car and trunk and listen for any sounds, with the car off and no keys in the ignition, everything turned off. Sometimes you can get lucky and you can hear something running when it shouldnt be. Another question, does the car have any aftermarket add-ons? Stereo, alarm, remote start?

My car wont start/crank and it a 98 dodge stratus

First, try to jump start in, if that does not work, next check the battery cables going to the starter, if they are secure and in good condition, you need to have your starter tested. The problem could either be the starter or the solenoid.

2003 Dodge Stratus will not stay started

Check the charging system. Charge battery until fully charged. Check battery voltage when engine is runnig. Volts should be 13.5-14.5. If not the alternator is malfunctioning. Let me know if this helps. Moe
