My 2000 dodge stratus won't start, I tried to test for

Customer Question
My 2000 dodge stratus...

My 2000 dodge stratus won't start, I tried to test for codes, using a digital scanner, but no codes come up, what could be the problem for no codes showing up...

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Battery is fine, connections are good, motor turn over, but no spark or fuel

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Stratus yourself? What have you tried so far?

So far, just checking for codes, I haven't done anything else

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's about it

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
