Re: 2000 Dodge Stratus
The first thing I would do is check the Transmission Control Module (TCM) for stored codes.
up codes, cycle ignition switch on, off, on, off and on within 5
seconds. Stored codes will be indicated by flashes of the check engine lamp. The codes will be indicated as two digit
numbers, with a four second pause between codes. An example of a code
scan is as follows:
Power Loss/Check Engine Lamp illuminated for approximately 2 to 3 seconds as a bulb check, then turns off.
Lamp flashes 2 times, pauses, then flashes 6 times.
Lamp pauses for approximately 4 seconds.
Lamp flashes 3 times, pauses, then flashes 1 time.
This would indicate that code 26 and 31 are stored. The lamp will continue to flash until all stored codes have been displayed.
If we are lucky we'll get some codes to work with. This will show you any transmission codes.
I found that a code 31 on a 94 Voyager indicates an evaporative emissions problem, but I'm not sure whether that code applies to your car as well. Have the ECU scanned at AutoZone and see what comes up. They'll do it for free and will give you the codes. Then you can post them up and we'll see what we can do about them.

Do you have a check engine light on? If not, it could be many things from bad fuel pressure, a vaccum leak, or your not getting a good connection in the ignition system. Check the fuel pressure to the engine first. If that checks out, write me back. I am here to help in anyway I can.
If you don't have air in your ABS pump, just watch the brake bleeding procedures on You Tube. Also, for what its worth, I never had good luck with any tool that uses vacuum to **** the fluid through the lines because of air leaks in the bleeder threads. Instead use the pedal pumping procedure.
this is indicative of a failure in your braking system, detected on the electronic portion. if the ABS light is on, that means the computer will have logged a code, and having the vehicle scanned is the first place to start in the diagnostic procedure. this will narrow down the area of the problem, and then the diagnostics can begin. good luck!
This is a real common problem on caravan. But I haven't seen it on stratus. But it might be the same thing. When it won't start the gauge won't work at the same time? When it does this does slapping the side of the dash make the gauges work and then the car starts? Try this
The check engine light on means there is a code stored in the ECM. You will have to have the OBD II system scanned and cleared. The other problem is probably just a blown fuse. If you need more help get back to me.
