What should you do if your 96 Stratus 20 amp fuse kept blowing and a mechanic said to replace it with a 30 and that only worked for a while?

First, FIND A DIFFERENT MECHANIC!!! That was terrible advice. There is a reason the manufacturer used a 20 amp fuse. Using an oversized fuse is just asking for something more expensive to burn up instead (possibly the whole car!) Second, find the wire that is shorted out. Somewhere on the circuit there is probably a bare wire that is touching a grounding point.

You should either go to a certified Mercedes Mechanic or a company such as AutoZone. You can get a new headlight there, and they include instructions.

Sounds like you have a short. Unless you are electronically inclined, take it to a reputible mechanic. It should be a rather quick fix.

check your water or coolant level If coolant level is ok, replace the thermostat.

The problem is the blend door, not the heater core. Any mechanic worth anything should have checked and replaced the blend doors while it was apart to replace the heater core. Check heatertreater.net for diagnostic information and some real help.

honestly it should not take a qualified mechanic more than 48 hrs to 'replace' a transmission? that's if he has really done his homework. repairs or service time may differ but mechanics must do our research 1st.

Any certified mechanic should be able to replace your seat belt assembly. You will want to hve ths repair done ASAP,driving without a seatbelt is against the law and very unsafe.

The Dodge Stratus should solenoid can be found on the side of the transmission. The shift solenoid will be on the right side. The shift solenoid should be labeled as such.
