Why won't my car start?

Asked by Dec 02, 2015 at 09:50 AM about the 2004 Dodge Stratus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 Dodge Stratus it is a
sedan and has a V6 2.7L engine.
A couple months ago it randomly
would not start. I got a jump, took it to
the auto parts place, they tested my
battery and said it was bad so I put a
new battery in it. About a week and a
half later, it did the exact same thing, I
had my alternator checked and it
showed up as fine so I didn't do
anything else to it. I kept driving it as
it was and if was working normal.
Two days ago I went to start the car
and it wouldn't crank. There was no
noise, but the lights went on. I
checked my starter at the auto parts
store. They said it was bad. Replaced
my starter with a new one. Moment of
truth, went to start it last night.....still
nothing.
Does anyone know what could be
going on? I'm no mechanic and have
checked everything I personally knew.
I would appreciate any tips.
Thanks

I would replace the ground to the battery , they are known for corroding internally , it will cause same issues but will not do it all the time, that's where I would start , good luck hope this helps

Did u ever find out what it was?because mine is now doing the same thing
