on the stratus i believe that the car has to be on a lift and the battery has to be taken out from under the car via the wheel well. I am exactly sure if this is totally correct because I'm more of a GM guy.

You are right the car has to be lifted, the wheel well front piece has a few screws you have to undo to open it. Theres your battery. Some people find it easier to remove with the tire remove but it can be done without doing that.

AnswermY 1996 DODGE STRATUS WON'T START UNLESS JUMPED, WHEN I SUT IT OFF IT WON'T RESTART 7 BATTERY DASH LITE COMES ON.My '99 Stratus was giving me similar problems. You should check the battery terminals and have the battery tested. Usually, a battery leaks acid and builds corrosion eating away at the terminals so that you will have the dome light and even radio but it will not be able to start. Does it make any clicking noises?
