Question about 2001 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

I was at a stop light, and my neon just turned off.

While I was sitting at a stop light, my lights go off, and then all of the sudden the car just goes off. I put it in park, tried to start it up, it didn't work. I tried again and it started just fine. I got home okay, but this is weird, never happened to me before.
I am over due on an oil change though, maybe this could be the problem?

Do you have a lot of keys on your key ring?

3 times I have ran in to this and found the key ring was over loaded and ended up wearing out the ignition key switch due to the extra weight. The contacts become misaligned causing the car to shut off at anytime, not remain running after key is released during starting.

This happened to my Wife, and Grandmother if you have a lot of keys put them on something else and not your cars key ring if you can help it.

Hi- i have a 1999 Dodge Neon that started just fine this morning. i just tried to go some place and it won't start, the lights won't come on, there is no ''clicking'' noise, the power locks don't work....


i have worked on a neon before that had that same problem.so check the connections to your brake lights,stop lights,reverse lights,and turn lights.they could have a bad connection and its draining the battery.that was the problem i had so maybe your having the same exact problem.it had took me weeks to find that problem.i would jump start the car and it would run fine,let it sit for a couple of hours and the battery would be dead.so anyways ya check that i can almost bet thats your problem.

My 1996 dodge neon wouldn't start...mechanic told me it was the battery...replaced battery still after sitting for too long won't start took it to another mechanc...not the alternator. he said that a wire...


try and check for small lighting...under hood light, trunk light...maybe those turn off buttons could be stuck in. Or, maybe you have map lights under the rear view mirror on?

Left rear stop light & turn signal went out.


The wiring harness runs through the trunk between the quarter pannel and the inner liner. You might check these wires to make sure it hasn't been shorted or frayed.
