1996 Dodge Stratus Problems

Starting Issues and Trouble Code Due to Defective Cam/Crankshaft Sensor

When a no start condition is caused by a faulty camshaft or crankshaft sensor, related fault codes stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) should not be trusted. Our technicians tell us that under certain conditions a fault code can be stored for the "good" sensor. Care should be taken to properly diagnose this condition.

Defective Speed Sensors May Cause Cruise Control/Speedometer/Shifting Problems

Defective speed sensors on the transmission can cause problems with the cruise control and speedometer operation, as well as erratic shifting. The connectors on the sensors can corrode and/or the connector terminals can spread (poor connection), which will create similar symptoms. Any of these problems can cause Check Engine Light illumination.

 

Automatic Transmission May Fail Due to Internal/Electrical Component Failure

The automatic transmission used in these vehicles have had a high failure rate. Failures can be due to internal component or electrical component failure.
