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?

    Same tihng happen about 2 years ago, after about an hour of the car sitting it worked fine and light stopped blinking

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

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
