Question about 2003 Dodge Stratus

2003 Dodge Stratus Hazard Light problem

My hazard lights on my Stratus were fine until a few days ago, then they began working sporadically. Now they don't work at all.

I checked the fuse panel inside the car, but none are for the hazard lights. The fuse & relay box under the hood is not labeled. No owner's manual came with the car. I'm looking for one now, but in the meantime, I have to fix this, as my job requires hazard lights.

I should also mention the blinkers aren't working either. Replaced that fuse, with no luck.

I'd appreciate any help!

I had the same issue with a 2002 stratus, the problem was the flasher relay. It's located inside the steering column, inside the multiswitch, and its fairly easy to replace. Two screws under the steering column to remove the top cover, then two hex screws to remove the multiswitch, then you can remove the relay which is green, mine was part# 04606478AD. You won't find this exact relay at the local auto parts store, but you can order from mopar parts online, or check the parts dept. at your local dealer. I called a local dealer, he didn't have it but was able to find one a few miles away, cost was $30.

SOURCE: turn signals /hazard lights don't blink

Hi! check first for any blown fuse. INSPECTION 1. Check for a burnt fusible link with an ohmmeter. 2. If a fusible link burns out, there is a short or some other problem in the circuit. Carefully determine the cause and correct it before replacing the fusible link. The fusible link will burn out within 15 seconds if a higher than specified current flows through the circuit.2f5ff5a.gif

SOURCE: blinker stopped working, but the hazard lights still work - I think it's a blown fuse but how and where do I fix the fuse

There is 2 different flashers. One flasher for the turn signals and one flasher for the hazards. If you turn on the turn signals and the turn indicator on the dash lights up but doesn't blink, then most likely it is the turn signal flasher that is bad. Good luck.

SOURCE: Rapid blinkers and hazard switch

first check all of the bulbs are good. on some cars if a bulb is burned out the blinker will flash faster than normal.

Hazard lights are on a different circuit as they are supplied with power from the battery. Indicators are supplied through your ignition switch. Take a look at fuses first, check them electrically using a test probe. Then take a look at the flasher unit. It may be difficult to find but check in the fuse panel first. This usually looks like a square relay type but it will have two or three connections, not four or more. Flasher units dont fail that often but they do fail.Try turning the ignition on and then switch one side flashers on, then tap each relay box in the fuse panel. If it clicks, then that signifys that it is the flasher unit, replace it with the same type. WARNING, if you use the wrong type of flasher unit, you will damage the new unit and pop fuses etc. Make sure you replace it with the same type of flasher unit.

SOURCE: Where is the flasher relay located on my 97

The Lincoln Continental flasher is integrated into the "Multifunction light control module" part # 13c788. Cost junk yard around $50. There is no stand alone flasher relay as in the older or more senseably engineered and cheaper cars.

Hope helps.

2001 4Runner. Car security went bust first, then the horn stopped working, then the hazard lights. Now, the brakes as well. Any help please?

All except the brakes sound like fuses failing, or wires breaking. A quick check of the fuse box should remedy those.

What do you mean by "the brakes"?

does the pedal go to the floor without stopping the truck?
do the brake lights not come on?
is the brake indicator on the dash on?

need a little more to go on

My running lights and turning signals do not work , but my break light and head lights work in my 2003 dodge stratus. Checked the fuses and light bulbs and were told they were good.

Do you hear the clickin sound that you usualy hear when using turn signal or hazard lights ?

Have you checked the brake light switch that is licated at the end of the braking pedal arm (folow the metal upwards you'll encouter the switch) (use a mulyi meter on the sund mode to check if there is a closed circuit)
