Nov 06, 2011 (2:33 pm)
I had a 2000 Dodge Neon got 252,600 miles out of it before engine finally went. Loved it!! So I purchased a used 2003 Neon SE and it has been a nightmare this past wk. First 30 days it drove fine, made first payment and BAM! But here is crazy thing...my husband had just replaced the ignition coil on old neon so called advance store and they said it was exact same part....so hubby put new one on 03 car and troubles started after that....then today went to advance store and purchased a new ignition coil and it had a different part number. So my question is if anyone mechanically inclined can help is this...because car ran FINE before switching coil...did those different part numbers have something to do with the coils ARE different and now my computer needs to be reset because it has caused something to screw up in the electrical system? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Good deal, I have found a lot of parts match up of the newer neons to the older ones. I enjoy my little go cart on steriods.

Jun 03, 2012 (5:28 am)
Ive recently had a a busted trans oil cooler hose that cause the reason for low idle and stalling that fixed problem somewhat i just need to flush transmission. But then not even a full month later im at a stop light and my car shuts off, it did this when i transmission leak so i put it in park and it cranks back up. thinking im low on transmission i buy more but i was fine on transmission fuel. i have full tank of gas. i turn key lights come on dashboard but no noise is heard. we hit starter and tried to crank but nothing, tried boosting but nothin! just checked fuses inside and out and all my #20 's fuses are blown! the inside are just burnt except 1, and thats the #20 fuse. i have had oil change, engine isnt locked up, there is oil in car, no leaks besides inside passenger under dash. have aprox 116,300 miles Any solutions will work.

#167 of 169 Neon won't start tested starter and changed out solenoid NEED HELP!!!
Aug 05, 2012 (12:51 pm)
So as the title says I already said tested the starter they said the solenoid was bad so I put a new one on and tried to turn it over, all we got was a clicking noise.
So cleaned all the connections and still nothing. Can't seem to figure this one out and running out of $$$ so if anyone has any idea what it could be I'd appreciate it thanks.
#168 of 169 2000 Dodge Neon Stalled
Aug 22, 2012 (5:06 am)
I have a 2000 Dodge Neon that stalled while driving (It has 370,001 miles on it, yes I like my Dodge). Anyway, turn key over NOTHING, but panel lights up, so I know battery has power. My question is, does anyone know what would cause to stall and then nothing, engine acts as if it is locked up, Check Engine Light did not come on. NOW the security light in the middle flashes when I turn key over--Could this be a computer problem? I appreciate any help.

I also had a 2000 Dodge Neon that was a great car. It had close to 200,000 miles on it when I got rid of it and bought a 2005 Dodge Neon with 56,000 miles on it. The 2005 ran great for over a year, approx 18,000 miles. Then it started cutting out and the service engine light would come on, but it would only do it occasionally. It did continue to get worse until one day it did it when I was on the freeway and it wouldn't let me drive over 35 MPH it was cutting out so bad and the service engine light stayed on. I drove it to an Advance Auto and they ran a diagnostic which said cam shaft sensor was bad. Part and labor was only about $85. It ran fine for a week or two, no cutting out or anything then out of the blue wouldn't crank one night when I came out of the store. It wouldn't turn over or anything. After about an hour it did crank up again. Once I got home it wouldn't crank back up. Still wouldn't turn over or anything. I tried jumping it off and it cranked right up but then would cut off and not crank again. I bought a new battery from Advance Auto (they deliver to your home and install!) and the guy also checked to see if my alternator was bad. It wasn't. After the guy installed the new battery and cranked it up and had me do that thing where you rev the engine for a certain amt of time to reset your computer, all was well. It was still running while I was out signing the paperwork but then it just cut off and wouldn't do anything when I tried to crank it again. He checked the connections, still nothing, so he took the negative battery cable off and put it back on and it cranked right up. Then before he could put his tools away...it cut off again. Still wouldn't turn over or click or anything when I tried to crank it. He took the negative cable off and put it back and it cranked right up. He said there's something wrong with my computer. That it was not resetting itself and that was what he was doing, resetting the computer, when he would take that negative battery cable off and put it back on. He said I should try to drive it a while so the computer could reset itself. I drove it for a while around my neighborhood and it didn't cut off but as soon as I parked, it cut off and wouldn't crank again. I took it to the shop where they told me I had a different bad cam sensor. They replaced it and let it run idle in the shop for a long time but then the mechanic asked if it was okay with me if he drove it home that evening to make sure it was not going to cut off on the road with me. He did and it did. Again and again. So he cleaned the computer chips or something like that. There are approx 60-100 of them he said, and it ran good for a week then while it was running idle it cut off and did the same thing again. Wouldn't crank, wouldn't turn over, nothing. I was at the airport and security offered to jump me off. I figured it wouldn't work but it fired right up. I stopped by the store on my way home, left the car running while I grabbed a newspaper...it cut off again. After a few minutes it did crank up on it's on. Then a few days later my daughter drove it and it wouldn't crank when she got off work. She called AAA. This time it wouldn't jump off. He got in the car and shifted the gear to Neutral. It cranked right up. He told her that those cars have a sensor on the gears or transmission or something like that and sometimes they think the car is not in Park so it won't crank. He said to try shifting it to neutral and see if it will crank when it cuts off or won't crank. It has worked every single time since. Whenever it won't crank or it cuts off, I just shift into Neutral and it cranks right up.. You do have to have the key in the ON position to shift the gear out of Park. I'm afraid to get it fixed. Scared they will fix that sensor and another will go bad. As long as this works I'm just going to leave it like it is. It does not cut off while I'm driving down the road. Only when I'm sitting somewhere with it running idle. Which I try not to do but some stoplights are 10 minutes long. Good Luck Neon owners. I hope this works for you also.
