The Dodge Stratus battery compartment is located beneath the engine compartment in the left front fender next to the wheel well. The remote terminals for the battery are accessible through the engine compartment for jump starting.
If a Dodge Stratus battery needs to be replaced, the only way to access the compartment is by putting the vehicle up on a jack and removing the left front tire and the wheel well splash guard. The battery is secured within the compartment by a retaining bracket that can be removed by loosening the bracket bolts. When changing the car's battery, wear protective eye wear and gloves to prevent injury from leaking battery acid.
