    My 2000 Dodge Neon only blows cold air. The coolant level is good and the thermostat is less than 2 years old. Is there a way to troubleshoot the heater core before replacing? Also how can I check the flap door? Could it possibly be a fuse

2000 dodge durango.Had a new heater core put in found out remote start not working

Take it back to whomever replaced the heater core and tell them that your remote start no longer works. They probably moved some wires around or disconnected something that is now affecting the remote start..The heater core is usually replaced by taking apart the heater housing under the dash board, where remote start devices usually are. Good luck!

Where is the heater core located on a 2004 dodge neon and what do i have to do to change it

Inspect/Replace If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

How do i take the dash apart for a 2004 dodge neon sxt? that way i can get to the heater core. and also how do i take the heater core out?

your attempting to try a job that you really shouldn't try,
the steering column will have to be dropped,the entire dash comes out of car,the AC needs vacumed down and disconnected,and that just gets you to the heater box assembly,your still another hour away from seeing a heater core .when we did these jobs at the dealers with all the tools available to us,it was a 12 hour job,then you have to recharge the AC yet

How to replace heater core in a 2000 neon

It's under the dash on the passenger side. Yeah, you've probably got to remove the dash. Lots of fun, I know. Buy a manual. Hayne's Repair Manuals are the best. Good luck.

Where is the heater coil located and how do you change it,the easy way,ive heard taking the dash off is that the only way

It's not heater coil, it's heater core. Unfortunately, it's on the passenger side under the dash. If you're really, REALLY lucky, you can replace it without removing the dash, but it's not likely. Buy a Hayne's Rapair Manual for your car at Autozone. It's a life saver. (And a money saver.) Good luck.

1996 Dodge Neon Heater Core

All you have to do is follow your radiator to it. From the front of the car into the dash.Your Heater Core is in your dash somewhere behind the intake manifold.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
