Question about 2000 Dodge Stratus
I had a similar problem once with my '04 Stratus. I was pulling out of my subdivision and stopped at the intersection and all of a sudden the car just stopped...completely shut down. I knew it wasn't out of gas because I filled up the night before. It wasn't the battery because all the electrical equipment worked. Come to find out, my timing belt had snapped. So, if it won't even start, that may be your problem because the timing belt is what makes the engine turn over. If the timing belt is snapped, there's nothing to turn the crankshaft to move the pistons, etc., etc. You should get a mechanic to look at it to find out for sure, but that's what it sounds like to me. Hope that helps.
