Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
More than likely the solenoid is shot. eventually it won't do anything when you turn the key. The solution is to replace the starter. On most cars the starter and the solenoid are one unit and cannot be purchased separately. It is always prudent to check the connections on the battery and the primary wire that connects to the battery. Also while your looking at the primary wire from the battery to the starter, look and feel for melted sections. It could have a section of wire called a "fusible link" that has blown. That sometimes occurs when a starter is going bad and requires an extra amount of amps to crank the engine.
