#1295 of 1773 2000 Plymouth Neon lights
Jul 03, 2005 (9:42 pm)
I am hoping someone can tell me what is wrong here. I have had my car for a year and I have noticed that the lights fade in and our on the dash board. Also I have what looks like a picture of a head light on the dashboard, every time the I hit the blinker this lights up, same with when my lights blink out. I did not receive a manual when I bought the car and the guy who fixes my car can't find anything wrong. does anyone know what this means?

Hi Boyo3221... Thanks so much for the tip... I'll be sure to take out the bulbs temporarily. If you do find a permanent solution, please do fill me in. Do you have any idea what may be causing this???
#1297 of 1773 how to refill the ac
Jul 04, 2005 (3:07 pm)
I have a 2000 plymouth neon. The AC works (I can turn it on and air comes in). But there is no cold air. I think I should recharge the AC. Does anybody know how to do it? Where can I find the instruction for this? Can I do it by myself?

Real easy to do. I went and bought a single 20 oz. can from WalMart for $20 dollars and it had its own gauge. After you've bought the can of R134A refrigerant turn your car on and your AC on high. There's a black knob on top of what looks like a thin pipe on the left side of your engine facing your car. Unscrew that and insert the gauge. Depending what R134A you've bought you either will have to turn the can upside down and push the button on top or you'll have to puncture the can with the gauge. Empty it's entire contents into the AC and after you've emptied the can, put the black knob back on and then check your vents and feel the COLD difference.

There was a notice about this in Mopar Magazine a little while ago. When the antenna is installed there is supposed to be a gap at the base of the antenna on some Chrysler products. I don't remember off the top of my head if the Neon is one of them. I'll see if I can dig up the issue.. It looks awkward and some dealership lot monkeys have been tightening them all the way down. You may want to see if yours is tightened all the way down and, if it is, check with the dealership and see if it's supposed to be.

I just bought a 2000 Plymouth Neon this past weekend from a wholesale used car dealer. The car did not include an Owner's Manual. Does anyone have a PDF or printable file I might be able to download?

I purchased a Dodge Neon from a salvage company that had a damaged computer.
I replaced the computer with one with the exact part number purchased from
a salvage company. The engine started and ran for a few minutes and then
completely shut off and would not restart. It appears that the key that I was given by the company was not the correct key and the vehicle has the Sentry security system. I towed the car to the dealer and they are telling me that they will need to
1) Make new a new key for about $100
2) That the computer needs to be replaced for $800
3) That they would need to reprogram the new computer to match the car.
Someone else told me that they only needed to reprogram the security system for the new key and that it should cost about $50
Does this seem right.
