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?

This sounds like the antitheft system is on, use key and go to driver door, shut the door then use the key to lock and then unlock the door, then try to start the car, by unlocking the door with the key will shut alarm down, if this doesnt work then go to passenger door and do the same thing, let me know how it goes, good day.
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
