    i tried hocking a new radio and a system in my 2001 dodge stratus and when i hooked the battery wires back up the interior lights came on and shut back off and my radio wont work

    2001 Stratus ES cd player loads and unloads, but won't play. Cass deck loads and won't unload. The LED lights indicate a cd is on disc 1, track 8, but no cd is loaded. The bass, treble and voice level lights are constantly on with no cd loaded into the tray. All this first began with the volume level going haywire then not working at all. What can be done except to buy a whole new system which I don't want to have to do?

I have a similar problem with my stratus except mine is a 95'. I haven't fully figured the problem out but i have been told to check all of the grounded wires you have hooked to your car.

I had the same problem and after several test I figured out that the problem is internal to the radio.
I bought a used one on ebay for about $50 and now everything is OK.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge stratus radio

I researched and found I needed to reseat or replace the IOD fuse. In my Dakota this is labled "Interior Lights". By pulling this fuse it allowed the radio to reset and everything came back. Hope it works !

Also had no radio but flashing bass/treble indicator lights. As suggested by another post, I disconnected neg. batt. cable and pulled the "interior cluster" fuses, re-set them and then reconnected batt. cable. This fixed the radio.
