Usually caused by alternator failure. If you have a voltmeter, start engine and check voltage at battery. It should be at least 14 volts. If not, replace alternator. If you don't have a voltmeter, remove the alternator and take it to the parts store for testing. If you have questions, please let me know.

    Here's one. A buddy of mine has this model. Yesterday he was driving home and was losing all power t the electrical system very slowly. I jumped hims twice and the car started right up, yet i didn't detect any draw from my battery. He replaced the battery and the alternator. The car wouldn't start. What could be the issue? Confused.

    I would guess an issue with battery cables and possibly a short of the positive battery cables. Trace the cables to see if the insulation is melted maybe against a hot pipe. Check the cables for continuity in case the cable has failed internally. If all positive cables are good, check the ground connections from the battery to the engine and chassis.

2006 dodge stratus interior light stays on

There are several things that can cause this, but the most common is a broken door switch that keeps the circuit energized.
Second most common is a broken interior light fixture.
Both of these item as are cheap plastic, and both break and melt easily.
The door switches are not often easy to change, as they are hidden behind trim parts.
You may choose to pull the fuse for the dome lights whilst you decide to fix the problem, lest the battery die, or the dome light melts.
. God bless your efforts.

My 2006 dodge stratus wont start

If the engine will not crank over with the starter then have the battery and starter tested first and then go from there. If the theft system is the problem you will have a warning light on in the dash or a message on alerting you to the problem in the anti theft system.

I have a 2006 Dodge Stratus. The radio powers on and off by itself while driving. If the radio is on along with the headlights it couses the headlights and interior lights to flicker on and off. Could...

It may be a battery issue but if the engine is on and this happens it may be an alternator issue. This could also be a wiring problem. Check for loose wiring or bad wires if the battery and replay checks out OK.
