Question about 2000 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Locked keys in car

I have locked my keys in my car. It is a 2000 Dodge Stratus ES. Is there any way I can unlock the door using the old method with a wire hanger? I can get the hanger into the passenger back door. I cannot find a diagram of the door. Would there be a wall or something keeping me from the actual lock?

    That's what I eventually ended up doing. Had a heck of a time pulling that button but eventually did it. BTW, that was back in July. Thanks for you help.

No bus

No bus is a serious problem with the Stratus.. Most cases it's the ECM.. You need to check all your fuses.. Disconnect the battery and let it sit about an hour and turn the key on and off before reconnecting.

Use the remote key lock and lock the doors and unlock with the remote key and try to start..

Probably none of this will work... You'll probably need a ECM.. If it has a security system, the junk yard ones won't work.. It'll fire up and then go dead.. Then the ECM is toast. Seems the Dodge guys figured out a way to defeat anybody working on it.

There is hope. There is a ECM repair place in south Florida that knows how to make the ECM work without having to take it to the dealer. They specialize in Dodge ECM's
