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

I have a 1999 dodge neon that suddenly shut off driving down the road. After checking I found that the ignition fuseable link had blown. I replaced it and it drove only a few feet but had idled some time. I replaced it again and drove about a mile, another blown fuse. After getting it home I have noticed that it fuse stays good at an idle but when you put it into gear in seconds the fuse gets VERY hot. The car has an automatic transmission. Any ideas anyone?

Check the 20 amp asd fuse in the Power Distribution Center if the fuse is blown the starter will not turnover, but the headlights will still come on with no problem.The PDC is located under the hood beside the battery.

I have a 2000 neon starts and stalls all the time. Sometimes it stalls when you first starts but mostly stalls after it is warm. Replaced fuel pump but still did the same thing. So we took it to the shop. Could find nothing wrong,no codes. So they checked the fuel pressure and it was between 95 and 100 psi, way to high. The fuel pump is only 1 day old, bought it from AutoZone.So I put the old regulator on the new fuel pump and got the same reading. So AutoZone is going to replace the pump, they won't let me just trade them regulators. Just wandering if any one else has checked the fuel pressure for being high and if that fixed anybody's problem. Will be putting in new pump Friday will let you know if that fixed problem.

I had the same problem. i found out its the wire/connector that connects to the starter
push it in and try that. email me for anything else.

i don't know if you fix your neon yet but i had the same problem. i took my neon to get fix but I got it back and it still didn't work I told the mechanic that it could of been alarm system so they disconnect the wires work for a little bit but the fuses were still blowing out. my noen blew the fuses when I moved my steering column. So I told the mechanic and he told me that the problem was in the steering column. NOw my neon is working never was told what caused it but it was in the steering column.

we have a 97 neon, sometimes it just quits completely, will turn over but gets no spark. sometimes you may wait 5 min and will start back up, sometimes may wait an hour. seems to do it more when its hot out. not codes show up. any suggestions what to check.

I just got done dealing with this issue. At first I thought fuel pump too. I have the exact same car. I had my car scoped at Auto Zone, it threw a code for the cam position sensor...fixes could be replacing that part, to the connections to it, to your timing being off, to a tune up. Taking the path of least resistance (and also having 47K on the car, it was time...) I got the tune up. It solved the problem for 5 days. I had it rescoped and it threw the cam sensor again. I had it fixed, so far so good.

Im still working on my 97 neon, have replaced fuel pump, oxygen sensor, cam sensor, timing belt, (only code that comes up says the timing belt is one tooth off but its not), and tune up. still having the stalling problem. going to test the throttle position sensor,dont think thats it but worth a try. Im wondering about the computer. has anyone had to replace theirs.

Funny because I had the IT Guys from work go out and mess with it and everytime they stuck something in the throttle hole(lol no sure the exact term) my car would start.. and they did this 2 days ago and so far no problem... so now we think that the throttle sensor was just stuck or they said something about the choke being stuck... when i had my car hooked up to computers at 2 different shops no code came up so they just started replacing cords wires pumps and all that good stuff... after 800plus dollars we have it narrowed down to a $15.00 piece that needs replaced...How annoying is that!!!!
