Hey my names Greg proud owner of a 1997 plymouth neon 5 speed what you need to do is go to wal*mart and buy an a/c recharger it comes in a can leave the car off while you do this regaurdless if it tells you to keep it running or not make sure you have someone with you while you do this when it says its charged stay under the hood and have someone turn the car on and turn the a/c on and try to figure out the hose it is leaking from when you find it out take it to the dealer and have them get you that hose or if you are a "do it yourself" kind of guy take the hose off yourself and bring it to your local parts store and hae them ring you up a new one also look underneath the car there are a few hoses under the car if you didnt already know about them hope this helps out atleast a little bit
#1654 of 1773 My final post
Jul 07, 2007 (12:16 am)
This is my final post to this forum as I am no longer the owner of my '03 Neon. I traded it in for a '07 Chevy Cobalt. The Neon was a decent enough car for a little bit, but as more and more problems began to surface with it, I decided it was time to get rid of it. The trunk began to leak water every time it rained and filled my spare tire compartment and floorboards with water, it all at once started running like crap (refer to a past post)and overall I was just sick of it. Sad to say, but I don't think I will be buying a Dodge again anytime soon. Never had problems with any other cars like I did with the Neon. Good luck to all you remaining Neon owners.

Ran into similar problem on my nephew's '95. No turn signals. No brake lights. Replaced brake light switch. Cured both problems. Good Luck.
#1656 of 1773 Blown fuses, that controls turn signals, back-up lights and rear defroster.
Aug 08, 2007 (8:01 am)
I have had my 2000 plymouth Neon for 2 years now. Bought it with 72,000 miles. It's now at 97,000 miles. The problem started a year ago, the fuse that controls the back-up lights and rear defroster blew and kept on blowing.(10amp) Replaced it one time to many. (I have packets of fuses just laying around in my car). In the winter I had to replace the fuse just to defrost the back windshield, and then it would blow after I put the car in gear.
The recent problem started this Sat.8/4/07.
The fuse for the the turn signal blew.(15amp) I replaced it several times since then, but it still doesn't work. The signals would work for 1-3 mins, then blow again. (Yet again I have to carry packets of fuses in my car).
I have dealt without having any back-up lights for a year but not having any turning signal, is ridiculous. I just can't deal with that. I have tried everything to get it to work, but have not had any luck. If there is anyone out there that can give me ANY advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

The best advice I can give you is to have someone "steal" your vehicle and total it. Or have someone burn it to the ground .
As trust me on this, fuse/electrical problems are the most minor problems you will have to deal with on your Neon.

#1660 of 1773 Best deal on a 2000 Neon
Aug 30, 2007 (8:55 pm)
Picked up A 2000 Neon with 111,000 miles for $200.00. The engine had a blown head gasket. Dropped the engine out, put it on a stand and rebuilt for about $900.00, including machine work and parts. It runs great, 3 spd Auto, blows 40* air cond at idle, engine temp stays right in the middle of the gage. Interior and body are in like new condition, new tires, alloy wheels, moon roof, PW,PS, cruise. Just wanted folks out there to know that not everyone is dissatisfied or having problems with their Neon!!!!!!
The key is to have the head milled before installation and don't let the dealer mechanics near it and it will probably will last a long time.

I have the same setup as you and the same problem. Mine is an automatic and is a "dog" from 0-30 mph, but runs great from 30+ mph. I replaced the plugs, plug wires, and cleaned the throtle body which helped a little bit but did not fix the problem. Did you resolve the problem yet ? If so, let me know.
