I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM W/ MY 2000 NEON. I HAD THE ENGINE COMPUTER CHANGED BECAUSE THE 1 THAT WAS IN THERE WAS A CALIFORNIA MODEL(I RECENTLY PURCHASED THE CAR) & IT TRIGGERED THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FOR A PART THAT ONLY EXISTED ON THE CAL. VERSION. NEEDLESS TO SAY I ENDED UP BUYING THE CORRECT COMPUTER FOR THE CAR . THE FIRST ONE FRIED IN LESS THAN 200 MILES ,BUT IT WAS WITH ASSORTED LIGHTS,NO SPEEDO, CHECK ENGINE ,&NO ODOMETER,BUT THE CAR RAN FINE .THIS WAS PROMPTLY CHANGED BY THE DEALER AT NO CHARGE.NOW AT ROUGHLY 5000 MILES AFTER INSTALL I HAVE HESITATION , STALLING AND NOW NO START.YOU TURN THE KEY AND NOTHING HAPPENS.THE DASH AND GAUGES ACTIVATE BUT THAT'S IT.THE WORST PROBLEM WITH THIS IS THE ONLY CODE THAT COMES UP IS THAT THE BATTERY WAS DISCONNECTED IN THE LAST 50 STARTS.NOW THE CODE DOESN'T COME AT ALL AND A SCAN TOOL CAN'T EVEN GET A RESPONSE FROM FROM THE VEHICLE.THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT NEVER DID COME ON. ANY SUGGESTIONS FROM ANYONE OUT THERE ????????

We have a 2000 Neon that we bought for our son to drive. With the recent rains the passenger floor board is wet. Saw your post sounds familiar to our problem. By any chance did you figure out what the problem is? We have had it in the shop and it is not the heater core, the shop said they thought the windshield was leaking so we had that looked at and we were told it is fine. We dont know which way to turn now. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Have a 97 dodge neon with factory alarm and remote start. how would I disable the alarm so I don't need to use the remote control device anymore? thanks. btw, it has no toggle switch under the dash.
#1640 of 1773 Replaced battery and alternator - now what?
Feb 17, 2007 (3:46 pm)
After driving through a flooded street in my 2000 Dodge Neon, my car would not stay running - it would start, and then die. I replaced the battery, same problem. Replaced the alternator, ran for 10 minutes or so, then died. Any thoughts? I need to get to work on Monday!
