Quite a project just to let you know.
Ok if you have the key i will be a lot easier.
Remove the 2 screws holding the cover around the steering column there is also 2 snaps holding it together.
Remove the blinker/washer assembly 2 screws from the top.
You should have a clear picture of the ignition
It gets really fuzzy after this but i had to punch in the pin that holds the ignition in on mine because i lost my keys which is located on the bottom side. Removing the ignition should be turning the key as you pull it from its holder.

Now if you got a junkyard ignition and key this wont work the keys have chips in them that corresponds with a ring that goes around the ignition that corresponds with the computer.

No matter what you have to end up going to the dealer. They can not reprogram the keys it is a one shot thing. So the best thing to do is just tow your car up to the dealer and pay like $90 for one and $120 for two because you will have to anyway.

If you change the ring reader it will not colaberate with the computer.

I have a 2000 Dodge Neon and wount start.I checked starter, battery, cables and just changed the key cylinder. When I try to turn the key it feels like its not catching anything and I do have power but it...


I dont remember but sounds like you are having a problem with a netural safety switch it's located on the top of the transmission it should have several wires going to it,probably 4 to 6 wires.Just a thought.I could be wrong.but it's free hope you can use this.

Ignition lock -98 dodge neon


Sounds like the ignition cylinder is jambed, if you remove the covers and put the key in, you might be able to turn it with pliers, just turn it to the accessories position, then there is a small metal clip that pushes in, push it in and pull the lock cylinder out of place, get a new one from the dealer and reverse to install. If it's above you, your dealer can help, usually about an hours labour or so.
Hope that helps, Good luck
