03 dodge stratus failsafe mode


Asked by Apr 24, 2017 at 01:24 AM about the 2003 Dodge Stratus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 03 dodge stratus that was over
heating so i put a new radiator in. I was
taking my wife to work and as i was at a
stop light the car started overheating. I
turned it off at the intersection and went
to start back up and i got nothing. No
crank no start, so i took the fuse for the
starter out and switched it with another
20 amp fuse then the car started. I was
suspecting that the fan relays were bad
so i went to auto parts store and changed
them out in the parking lot along with all
the other 20 amp fuses and 10 amp mini
fuses. Now car will not start or even
crank. To get it home i took a paper clip
and stuck it to the two terminals under
the starter relay. On the way home i
noticed the car was not shifting also
speedo was not working and fans were
stuck on high. I got home turned car off
and still no crank no start. I searched it up
and its saying the car may be in failsafe
mode? I have check engine light of p0700
and 3 others like tcm no indicator light,
shift solenoid 2 and one other. Can you
help me
