Q: Not sure why car won't start.

asked by on

My car will not start. What could be the problem?

A: Hello, Unfortunately without more informati...

Hello, Unfortunately without more information, I will be unable to pinpoint why your Dodge Stratus is not starting. The first step I recommend for all car drivers however is to check your car’s battery. You can do this by turning the key to the ON position and turn on the headlights. Notice if they come on strong and bright or if they are dim and weak? If they are dim, weak or unable to turn on, then it is time to get a jump for your Stratus. You may need to leave the donor vehicle running for several minutes while connected to your Stratus to get the battery charged up enough to start the vehicle. If the lights are fine however, then the battery is not the issue and the problem would need to be investigated further. This is when I feel it is best to the enlist the help of a certified mechanic to look over you Dodge and diagnose why car is not starting.
