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.
in front of the driver side tire
If your 1996 Dodge Stratus wonÕt start you can try to jump start the car. There is no reset button like a computer. You can recharge your car battery with a jump start.
are u sure the original problem was the battery and do you have the cables hooked up correctly.
Your distributor is probably bad.
R134 .... IS freon.
Try disconnecting both battery cables for a few minutes then reconnect. This has worked in the past but varies on models.
The fuel pump relay on a 1996 Dodge Stratus 2.4 liter is located underneath the hood. The relay will be in the integrated power module.
Dodge does not use inertia/reset switches.
Some will be.
