This happened to me a couple years back to my 2001 dodge Neon. I took it to the dodge dealer 3 times and was ready to apply the lemon law. They were never able to find the problem after the 3rd trip there they claimed they changed some wires and it never happened again. They claimed they never had seen this problem before. Months later my own mechanic changed my battery and found my cables were a mess and needed to be replaced. Possibly this contributed to the problem? I will never know, but it has not happened again. Good luck and do some research, I have seen others complaining about this problem.

I have just read your message and I have a Chrysler Neon LX UK model 1996. I have the same problem of the battery draining. It has a new battery which is a standard american battery and it has been into a UK dealer and they have told me there is nothing wrong with the charging system. This is a recurring problem in which I find often I have to charge the battery for the car to start. Could you please let me know in more detail if you think your problem is similar to mine, and what your american dealer did to rectify it.

#1437 of 1773 Speedometer gauge

I recently installed a white speedometer glow gauge.. I thought I knew what to hook it up to, but I was mistaken.. does anyone know what wires I need to run the glow gauge into to get it working? Also I've noticed that the gauges are reading off a bit (ex: speed is about 10 miles faster than actual speed) does anyone know how to reset this? Thanks for the help

My daughter who is 17 years old, owns a 1999 Plymouth Neon that from what I understand overheated. When she arrived at her boyfriend's house, he added water to the reservoir while the engine was hot and WITHOUT the engine running. He then added some oil -- about a half of a quart. Once she cranked the engine up it began making a noise that I would describe as growling. The noise reminds me of bearings grinding without lubrication. Today, I went out to check the oil and water and it does seem to be very low on water and the oil is very thin and smells stongly of gasoline. If anyone can please make any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. She is a high school senior with only a part time job and needless to say she is very upset because her car is messed up.
Thanks a bunch!!
