You are in the Dodge/Plymouth Neon
What is this discussion about?

I recently purchased a 2003 Dodge Neon and the alternator has already went out twice. About 2 weeks ago, I was driving it and it shut off and the brakes locked up, causing it to skid out of control. I had the dealership that I bought it at come get it, and they said that they couldnt figure out what was wrong. They have now sent it to a Dodge Dealer.....any ideas on what may have happened?

We have a 2000 neon that has problems with the alarm siren inadvertently activating. We found a tsb for this problem in alldata, took it to the dealer and the tech looked up the info and said that this was not applicable to the USA. We already replaced all the door pins in all four doors because we were having problems with the dome light coming on and dash reading door was open. The tech said that the tsb called for replacing the keyless entry module under the top of the dash and running a series of codes to fix the problem, but insisted that it was not for ones manufactured in the US and not sure if that would fix the problem. Does anyone have advice in this matter? I would enjoy being able to lock the doors again.

I'd appreciate any help. when we turn on cruise, dash says it is on. When we engage cruise, dash says it is set. Unfortunately, it is not. Most of the time it does not engage at all. Once and awhile it will engage but disengages immediately. Can anyone offer suggestion and how to fix. thanks

A few of us have been talking about this on here already, same situation. It is the most annoying thing. I took the fuse out of my neon to stop the door from making a horrible sound when it is trying to automatically lock. That worked for the lock but not the door light saying the door is open and not the alarm problem. I can't lock my doors, I took the dome light out but the reading lights still light up when it is acting up. I can not afford to pay the dealer there crazy prices to fix this and have not been able to find a garage who will touch it. If you do find anything out please let this board know. And if I do I will post it as well. I tried the duct tape over the door sensor....didn't work. I tried to figure out how to disarm the alarm and cannot. Good luck with this.

I was just browsing thru the Neon postings , because I`m pretty caught up on my cars postings . I`ve noticed that in the postings on my car they are mostly favorable , and that a majority love this car . On the Neon it seems to be nothing but problem after problem . And I`ve noticed not just Neons but Chrysler cars in general have a large number of head gasket problems.

I know it has been a while since this post and you may not even be returning to this site any more, but I'll ask any way. Do you know what component that would be that was faulty on the air conditioning? My '98 Neon's air stopped working and it's not the coolant system and it doesn't show up on the computer as an electrical problem. I did read about a part that could be the problem but usually doesn't show up as faulty but lost that info before I could get the car into the mechanic. Any ideas? Thanks

Hey I'm from Canada and I'm thinking of buying a 2000 chrysler neon 4 door with the 3 speed auto transmission. Really like the looks of the car and it drives great considering it's a 3 speed (i've always driven 5 speed manual). Any ways the millage is high at 130,000km (80,000 miles) but the price is right. Any thoughts?

Hello, did some one answer you're question? I'm having problems with my keyless entry control, I think it lost it program, do you were I can find the programming instructions?

Has anyone attempted to do a 134A recharge on their Air Conditioners? I know Walmart sells them pretty cheap and didn't want to pay a shop $125.00 to do it when I could do it for 1/3 of the price. Any comments would be great.
Also, any comments on different spark plus besides the stock Champions would help me out because I believe there are plugs out there that give off a hotter spark. Didn't like the bosch plug. I drive a 99 SOHC.
