Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

Air conditioning light

I have a 2001 Dodge Stratus (3L, 6 cylinder) and noticed that when I turned on the AC (pushed the snowflake button) it was blinking orange instead of maintaining a solid orange. What does this mean?

HEY GUYS! YOU ALL HAVE GOT A HAIRY ONE HERE, BUT I'M GOING TO JUMP IN HERE WITH ONE IDEA THAT I THINK WILL SOLVE THIS MESS. WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS AN A/C COMPRESSOR OVERHEATING AND SENDING OUT THIS WARNING SIGNAL( THE FLASHING ORANGE LIGHT ) AND SHUTTING DOWN THE CAR TO KEEP FROM BURNING UP THE COMPRESSOR. IF YOU CAN CHECK THE COOLANT LEVEL IN THE A/C SYSTEM IN THE CAR, YOU WILL PROBABLY FIND THAT IT IS LOW AND NEEDS R-134A ADDED. YOU CAN GET ALL THIS AT WAL-MART OR ANY PARTS STORE. JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS AND ONCE YOU GET THE LEVEL SET CORRECT, I THINK YOUR PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED AND YOU WON'T HAVE ANYMORE STALLING.THIS IS A SAFETY FEATURE TO PROTECT THE COMPRESSOR BECAUSE THESE THINGS CAN COST A BUNDLE TO REPLACE. GOOD LUCK AND I HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU! IT'S THE BEST SHOT I HAVE FOR THIS, BUT I FEEL IT'S THE ONE! IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO:ARCLIGHT1217

Sounds like the air conditioning system is low on refrigerant. Low pressure switch is causing it to stop working, OR, the HIGH pressure switch is doing it. I have seen OVER CHARGED systems act this way, also.

2000 Dodge stratus - runs ok but at times will "chug" or misfire driving down highway - think its an electrical issue as it will almost "act up" when using cruise, turn signals, air conditioning, etc.


check the vacuum lines for leaks first,since the cruise uses vacuum to pull on the gas pedal, and ac controls use vacuum to work the baffle doors in the ductwork..then start looking for loose connections on these 3 itemsrepost findings

2001 Dodge Stratus AC goes on and off?


Check the fuse for a/c compressor make sure it is completely pushed in slot then check wiring going to the high and low pressure switchs also if you have electric fans on radiator make sure it comes on when you turn on the a/c that would most likely be the cause of intermittent a/c issue also check plug on compressor if it was a lack of freon it wouldn't work at all

I tried turning on my air conditioner in my 06 gmc envoy denali by hitting the snowflake button it started to blink then it stoped and went off please help me


you need to get your ac serviced and computer checked for an air conditioning system code/malfunction. when the light in the button flashes it means a problem has set a code in your body control module that controls the ac.

How do I turn on my air conditioning on my 2005 caravan. I do not have an owners manual. Thank you.


Looking at your climate control panel, you should see a square button on the upper right section with a snowflake symbol on it.

Depressing this button should cause an amber LED to light when the blower fan is on, and activate the AC compressor.

You will also activate the compressor when you select defrost with the mode knob.
