problem #1

Jun 172004

Stratus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,000 miles
Started car and lowered window (power). Minutes after I started to drive, the power mirrors on both sides began to move by themseves. Minutes later smoke started coming out of the driver side door panel. Minutes after that flames shot out of top of door panel. I pulled over and got out of car. The fire was put out by someone with a fire extinguisher. The body shop ewald Chrysler mayfair on mayfair road in wawatosa wi replaced the door. To my knowledge no fused had to be replaced. I don't know if parts are available.
