#219 of 490 Re: 1995 Stratus STD keeps blowing ignition fuse HELP! [shefferb]
Oct 17, 2005 (4:06 pm)
I am experiencing the same exact problem as the user in message #138. I haven't put a lot of money into the problem yet, except I did replace the ignition switch. I have the 1995 Dodge Stratus 2.4. I am getting really tired of having to replace the ignition fuse everytime i need to start my car. I have talked to people who think that the cellonoid in the starter might be bad? or that it might be a bad fuel pump? Does anyone know what is causing this problem and what I should do to fix it.
Please resond or email me at robe2040wlu.ca
#220 of 490 95 Stratus ES No gauges work, A/C blows hot
Oct 17, 2005 (6:52 pm)
I have a 95 Stratus and the starter was replaced three weeks ago. The A/C just stopped cooling and blows hot air. The dash gauges don't work and the air bag light is on. The lights, turn signals work. Checked the fuses and they all look good. The radio works when it wants too, mostly never. The car only has 48,000 miles, driven by my wife 1 mile to work and the grocery store on weekends. The horn came on and wouldn't stop so had that replaced in the steering wheel after having to disconnect the battery to avoid the nieghbors ire.
What is the high side A/C switch and where is it located? How should I proceed to troubleshoot the electrical? Thanks, Tom
#221 of 490 Antifreeze turned to oil (or something)!
Oct 22, 2005 (8:22 am)
Has anyone's antifreeze turned to what looks like oil on a '99 V6? Mine did a few years ago around 72k (then flushed it of course). But now, at 95k, some of my freeze plugs are leaking and maybe 1 of the heads. Anyone ever hear of something like this? Or, any V6 thats had a freeze plug problem?

It's a solenoid in the column..............I had this problem on my '98 Grandprix GTP. My father-in-law showed me an opening/hole under the column....I would insert my middle finger up in there and press toward the front of the car. There should be a button in there that, once pressed, will allow you to slide the keys out.
The car still had this issue when I traded it off. I didn't want to spend three-hundred dollars to fix it.

I recently hit a deer with my car. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find aftermarket hoods and body kits.

Explain not charging battery, you don't read 14.5 V at the battery with DVOM. If 14.5 V to the battery then bad battery.

I have a 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT Special Edition. I've had it since May '05, and I hate this car. It's given me nothing but problems. The Chrysler tells me that I have pretty much one more problem until they begin the "buyback" process, but I need to know if anyone has any advice on how to kick start this little process, or if anyone has dealt with the same thing. Its my first brand new car, and it pisses me off that I've had nothing but problems with it. If anyone has a number or a person that I could get a hold of that'd be great!
