Check fuses, look at engine compartment fuse box, finda ASD relay swap it with horn relay. Try starting in neutral with foot on brake pedal(neutral saftey switch maybe bad). Check power at starter big wire(Need 12v+) check small wire while someone cranks car for you, you need a 12v+ while cranking, then it will go dead while not cranking. Cycle key-fob lock unlock, manually lock unlock driver's door(anti-theft problem). Check for faulty after market alarm system. (disabling starter).

2003 stratus has a new starter ,charged battery but will not crank


Check the fuse,relay? When you turn the Key on, do you see a security light and it goes out. Dodges will kill the starter after 3 unsuccessful security fails. If all that is good, you will need to start checking wires and the ignition switch. You'll need a volt/ohm meter.

I have 2005 I changed the starter and battery good but it still won't start


First does it crank, if it does then check to see if the fuel injectors are getting fuel.....could be a fuel pump...

second....if there is nothing when you turn the key and the battery is good and the starter was replaced...it could be a bad ground.....thats the ground coming off your battery and goes to your chassis of the car.........let me know how you make out.

2001 dodge stratus no crank no start from ignition


When you use the ignition key you activate both the starter and ignition circuits. When you jump the starter motor all you do is crank the engine - you have not energized the ignition so car will not start.

My 2006 dodge stratus wont start


If the engine will not crank over with the starter then have the battery and starter tested first and then go from there. If the theft system is the problem you will have a warning light on in the dash or a message on alerting you to the problem in the anti theft system.

All the lights and every thing work ..it wouldnt crank lastnight ..we waited a little bit and it cranked but this morning it wont ...never a hint of a problem befofe....2004 dodge stratus


Did you verify that your battery is not the problem. Easy way to do this is hook up a voltmeter to the battery and try and start the car. If battery voltage falls below 9-10 volts you need to replace your battery. Even though your lights work the battery may not have enough capacity to turn the starter.

My car wont start/crank and it a 98 dodge stratus


First, try to jump start in, if that does not work, next check the battery cables going to the starter, if they are secure and in good condition, you need to have your starter tested. The problem could either be the starter or the solenoid.

I have a 2003 stratus and it wont start... Crank sensor???


In a HOT day,old battery and fuel pump will be the prime troublemaker.

You need to charge up the battery and check for 12.4-13.6V range.

How old is the battery?

Most are warrenty for 24,48 or 96 months.

====
Fuel pump motor portion will ran forever. But the plastic diaphragm will give out in a hot day.

Do a fuel injector pressure test. Below 40 pis is trouble.

Fuel filter should be change if the fuel pump is at fault.


ALL more gas until it's over 1/2 tank and re-test.

A weak fuel pump will take more effort to pull fuel from a near empty tank.

Good luck,
