check that the belt has not come off

I just fixed this same problem on my son's 96 Stratus this evening. The first thing you want to try is to pull the IOD fuse in the fuse box. The IOD fuse is the one in the #5 slot, that controls the interior lights and radio memory.
With the car off and the key out of the ignition,pull the IOD fuse. wait about a minute, then replace the fuse. Turn the ignition to the "On" position (but not all the way to start).
This clears the BCM faults, and causes the HVAC system to re-calibrate. You should hear a series of whirring sounds (other that the whirring of the fuel pump). Once these sounds stop, you should be able to switch from defrost to the other settings.
Hope this was helpful :-)

Yes, if the car is left off and the light flashes and the battery condition is poor that COULD cause the problem. Put in a new batery and remove the door light and see if the problrm goes away. Chances are the door switch is bad ot there is an electical short. That door light might be on all the time and you don't know it if it is dim. Good Luck

I fail to see how you do not believe you have a
failed battery,the used one

Buy a new battery with the correct Group Size for the
car & at least 700 CCA rating

Napa top of the line with NO Caps on top, would be a
good choice

Look on napa web site.they are made by Penn Battery

BAT 8475 690 CCA $112.37

Check battery and see if it can be fully charged. If there is an indicator on the battery it should be green or measure the voltage with the engine off and see if it is close to 12Vdc. If the battery tests good there could be a problem with the electrical wiring or a bad device that draws current when the car is off. Glove box light gould be on, trunk light stays on etc...

its located on the transmission bell housing where it bolts to the engine on the rear side. it is a 3 wire electrical connection.

It's not like there is a part number for one, so you would have to search awhile. Easier to buy an "A/C delete pulley"- a free wheeling pulley and bracket in place of the a/c compressor. Then you can use the same belt. Aftermarket suppliers make these pulleys for many different applications. See if you can find one for the Breeze.

Check your Fuel system. Fuel line, filter, and sensor.

connect an amp meter in where the battery earth wire is and read the current draw with everything off. Low current indicates something like a glove box light or boot light and heavier current draws indicate something like a relay malfunction or a power wire just shorting out somewhere. Once you get an idea of the current draw take it to an accredited auto electrician and tell him of the result and he may have a good idea of where to start.

Your battery may no longer be able to hold a charge. Head to an auto parts provider or a shop and they will test your battery for you.

The other problem you may have is something known as 'parasitic draw'. Even though it appears everything in your vehicle is turned off, you may have a wiring or electronics failure that will lead to a small power draw on your battery that will continue to deplete it overnight. This repeated depletion can wear your battery out permanently.

Both conditions if left undiagnosed and unrepaired will place extra draw on your alternator and in turn a drop in fuel economy. I recommend booking it in with a trusted auto service technician.

Do you have the timing belt on and the tensioner set correct? If so, just rotate the crankshaft around until the notch on the crank sprocket is lined up with the pointer on the oil puimp housing (TDC). Now the camshaft sprocket's notch or pointer should be at the top and exactly in line with the mark on the rear timing belt cover. If it's not correct, you'll have to release tension on the belt, remove it, and set the camshaft to the mark. But before you do that, turn the crankshaft back (counterclockwise) just three notches. Then you can turn the cam to line up, then return crank to line up, and continue with belt installation, setting the tension, and re-checking timing marks after rotating the crankshaft a couple of revolutions. Once you know the timing is set to TDC, no further timing adjustments are possible, because the computer controls timing. I don't know how important it is, but just to let you know: Chrysler recommends after belt removal or replacement that one perform the "crankshaft and camshaft relearn alignment procedure" using the DRB scan tool (Chrysler's scanner device) or equivalent scan tool.
And the firing order on all four cylinder engines is the same: 1 3 4 2.
I hope this helps you out. Cheers.

There is a seal on the transmission case. I think the seal is worn.
