At the end of the posative battery cable. Not real hard but label the wires when you remove then to make sure thy go back where they came from.

The starter is located on the front of the engine behind the header, and below the air intake, it should be fairly easy to see from from above looking by down into the gaps in the header. I'm not entirely sure it's necessary to label the wires before you remove them, there are only 2, and it would be pretty hard to mix them up since one ends in a large ring terminal and the other ends in a rectangular plug. NOTE: Before you try to replace your starter disconnect BOTH cables from your battery. (located in front of the front driver side wheel in a small compartment, you will have to remove the tire to get to it.) It's a fairly simple job, just disconnect the wires from the starter. The next step is removing the retaining bolts which can be kind of difficult since you pretty much can't see the bolts you're working on, (most 95-00 2.4L stratus have only two, I believe they're 10mm) but once you get them moving it should go smoothly, and once they're out you can slide out the old starter, slide in the new one, and reverse the process. .

The starter for a 2005 dodge stratus is mounted on the side of the engine. It is over the exhaust system.

Unhook the wires on the starter, replace the fuse, turn the ingnition key on as if you were going to start the car. If the fuse does not blow, it is your starter. I just had this problem with a 1996 Dodge Stratus. I replaced the stater and it now works.
