Thanx. It sucks because I really like the little car and would rather spend the time and money on some accessories instead...! In any case, last thing suggested was to check the EGR valve but all I've been able to find is a picture of the gasket. Does the 05 even have an EGR? The Chilton's manual is terrible! I gotta get me something better! I have a new crank sensor that I haven't installed yet but I doubt that's the problem...

#143 of 178 98 Plymonth Neon won't start/stalls
Mar 14, 2011 (3:21 pm)
I have a 98 plymonth neon that stalls out at a read light a couple weeks back, after 5 mins it started back up, but stalled at the next read light. I put it on the computer and it said battery temp sensor (replaced) So now check engine lights off but its still stalls at redlights or if you let it warm up to normal temp. sometimes wont start at all! I've replaced core pack, spark plugs, crank sensor, computer, tested fuel pressure, i can hear fuel pump run. any ideas????

Im having the same issue with my 2002. check the wiring harness back by the manifold. Good chance its hitting the manifold and has melted though and some wired are cross arcing on the manifold when you hit a bump

I have been having this same problem for years and took to a dodge dealer and other mechanics who could find nothing wrong. Finally took it to a local dealer in my hometown who folks recommended as really good and honest. Mine had the exact same symptoms as you describe and it was a problem with the fuel pump. A problem with fuel injectors could also be the culprit.
#146 of 178 Does your neon Die? even while driving
May 21, 2011 (6:46 pm)
With my neon I have run into two problems that a lot of other people run into and I have not seen any answers to them. I have fixed those problems and now I want to share them with you other Neon owners. First thing, There are a lot of problems involving the fuel pump, then people change it out (sometimes with the rest of the fuel system) and still have not fixed the problem. The cause on mine was the crank position sensor, which controls the fuel pump making it appear as if it the pump or something else in the fuel system. On mine I would be driving then I would lose all power to the engine, the radio would still be going, and the speedometer would drop to zero even when I was still moving. sometimes it would restart afterwards sometimes it would not. Then I took a look at the crank position sensor and found that it had leaked oil into the electrical part, and started shorting out the sensor therefore cutting off all fuel flow to the engine.
Second, the "door" light comes on when all doors are closed, and it would leave the light on and drain the battery. When I replaced all the Door jamb switches that fixed the problem.
My neon is a 2000, but I have seen a lot of similar problems with other years as well. And These may not fix your problems, but I hope that this will at least help.
#147 of 178 I have 1999 w/same sort of problems
Jun 15, 2011 (3:25 pm)
Hi, I have a 1999 Dodge neon. Few weeks ago I was accelrating on highway & it lost all power then instantly died. Started right back up. i took it to mechanic they changed throttle body, throttle position sensor, fuel pump & fuel filter. Before taking it to mechanic the computer scanner did not pull up any codes. I got car back & it now had long start up & hesitation on take off & misfiring. Took it back to mechanic they adjusted throttle body. Still had same problems & had it scanned again scanner showed bad cam sensor. I replaced that & has it scanned again it still shwoing bad cam sensor & now ambient air temperature sensor. Currently car still has long start up, & loses power on accelerating too fast. could my PCM be bad? Or if anyone has any other ideas I would greatly appreciate it.

i have the same exact problem. my tranny just went today too, when my light comes on it says its my "idle air" so that could also be a cause.

I have a 2002 Dodge Neon. It will run fine for a while and then when you try to start it, it will start and die 3 times and then it will not start for a while. When this happens, the security light stays on. The computer has been replaced along with the ignition module and a new key has been programmed. Any ideas?
