Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus

We have a 2002 Dodge Stratus. When braking it sounds like a crunching noise. The auto mechanic checked brakes and is fine. Could it possibly be the caliper or axle?

99 dodge stratus, has rough idle when brakes are applied. Car is running, if Iput in park it runs fine. Check engine light is not on.


Sounds like an issue with the brake booster - either the booster itself has a leaky seal, or maybe the brake booster line has a leak. Could also be the brake booster check valve.

The warning brake light has a dual purpose. Check your brake fluid and check your brake light bulbs. If it is low on fluid, it will trigger the light. If the bulb is lose or weak, it will also trigger the light. Good luck!

My 02 Dodge Stratus will not shift out of Park. Help?


If the engine starts, but wont shift out of park, you should check that your brake lights are working. The interlock solenoid is powered by the brake light switch, if the fuse is blown or if the brake light switch is bad, the car wont shift out of park...I hope this helps.

I ve got a kalos 1.4sx 2008 and i ve got problems with the brakes. The brakes ''crunch'' when i m bringing the car to a halt,even on dry roads. The abs warning light has been on a couple of times but...


The Chevrolet/GM autos rely on a Kelsey ABS actuator system that is electronically controlled. I know its hard to describe sounds, but is it possible the crunch is a hum? If the ABS light comes on and goes off after restart it means one of two things. That the ABS controller is going bad or the speed sensors on the wheels have come loose or gone bad. Under your hood there is a fuse compartment that contains the fuse that controls the ABS system on your vehicle. Its a 60 Amp fuse and large.. Look in your owners manual for its location. . Check it with the vehicle OFF to make sure its not blown or cracked. Leave the fuse disconnected and start the car. The ABS light should STAY on as well as the parking brake light. Test your brakes by pressing down on them while the car is in park and not moving.. do you hear the sound. If you DONT hear the sound then the ABS control module is causing the brake pump to work continuously and thus your "noise". YOu can confirm by placing the fuse back in place and then listening to the car about where the drivers door is... do you hear a hum? If so you can leave the fuse disconnected to deactivate the ABS module. The brakes will still function you just WONT have ABS capability. Confirm this with a very slow roll from park or neutral and press brakes to stop. If you dont hear the noise or a hum, reconnect the fuse and take the car for a drive. Turn to the left and right while applying the brake at an intersection.. vehicle in motion slightly. Do you notice that the ABS light or noise occurs turning one way or the other or both? If it comes on during the turn then the ABS sensor in that wheel or both wheels need to be inspected and possibly replaced. Finally, you need to inspect the brake pads for wear..typically however brake pads have WEAR INDICATORS built in and will start to SQUEAL when you apply the brakes telling you time to replace pads. If its a squeal and not a crunch then have pads replaced. Finally, be sure and make sure you dont have any rocks or road debris within the brake area or between teh pads and the rotors. That would be your final area to review for a CRUNCH noise.

Lift the hood and have some one get under the vehicle a grab hold of any component that may be suspect for looseness, causing this noise.
Puss down on the front of the vehicle when it is not moving to re-inact the drivability problem your having. This seems like a loose bushing or possibly a loose exhaust shield. Hard to say at this point.
