1999 Dodge Stratus Q&A
1999 Dodge Stratus Question: Engine will not turn over
My son has a 1999 4 cylinder automatic Dodge Stratus. Two days ago he drove it home and parked it. The next day he went out to start it but nothing happened. He turns the key on to start and there is totally nothing,certain thing's work and certain things don't.The radio won't turn on,the flashers work but the signals don't,the headlights work,the fan works but the ac doesn't. The battery appears to be charged. All of the fuses are good, and changing the relays around did not help. replacing the ignition switch with a new one did not solve the problem either. What is the next thing He should be looking for?? - strobelight
It just never turns out to be cost effective to replace parts without testing them and proving they have failed. You need a voltmeter and check that the battery is 12.6 volts at rest if not charge and test he battery. Have you tried jump starting the car from another car to see if it will then turn over. After that check for voltage to the small wire at the starter when the ignition key is turned to the start position, if not apply battery voltage directly to the small wire at the starter and see if operates the starter. You need tests to see if the starter circuit is good, it could be as simple as a bad electrical connection.
