Why would a 96 Dodge Stratus make a clicking sound when you try to start it?

Cleaqn tha battery cables and make sure there is a good ground between the engine and body. Also the battery could be bad. First of all, make sure you dont have a dead battery. Second, make sure when the car is on, that the alternator is working and recharging the battery. If the connection to the starter motor is loose then your car will just click and no turn over. If the car does not start, then it could be merely anything... but if your car does start and it is clicking then you have a lifter problem, often found with most 1996-97 Dodge Vehicles, including the Stratus and the Earlier Caravans. This is not serious, but can be annoying.

Probably it's a low battery, though it could be a bad starter. You are probably hearing the starter solenoid clicking.

The Dodge Stratus might not start because the battery is dead or the starter is worn or damaged. It might not start because it is out of gas or because the fuel line has water or air in it.
