Sounds like you have a bad brake pedal switch or it has come loose from the bracket.

It is located under the drivers side of the dash near the brake pedal lever. It will twist to disconnect it from the bracket. once removed fro the bracket it can be unplugged and replaced.

SOURCE: Programming keyless remote for Neon 2004

There is a way to program a remote if there is already a valid remote. Unfortunatly if you don't have a valid remote the only way to get one programmed is at the dealership with their scan tool.

I have pasted directions for programming a remote if there is already a valid transmiter.

CUSTOMER PROGRAMMING For a customer to be able to program RKE transmitters themselves, at least one RKE transmitter must be programmed already. This procedure is to add additional transmitters. If all transmitters are lost, the DRB III® scan tool must be used to program the new transmitters.

  1. Insert the key into the ignition switch, and turn the ignition switch to the RUN position without starting the vehicle (allow chimes to stop).
  2. Using the RKE transmitter programmed to the RKE module, press and continuously hold down the UNLOCK button for 4-10 seconds.
  3. Within the 4-10 second time range, continue to hold the UNLOCK button and press the PANIC button. Both buttons may then be released. Upon the PANIC button being depressed, the message for customer programming mode will be transmitted to the RKE module.
  4. A chime will be heard to verify that the customer programming mode has been entered (allow 3 seconds to hear chimes).
  5. Press and release any button on each transmitter that is to be programmed to the RKE module, including any transmitters which were previously programmed to the RKE module (with a maximum of four possible). After each transmitter is successfully programmed, a chime will be heard to verify that successful programming of the transmitter has occurred.
  6. After thirty seconds, or upon the ignition switch being turned OFF, the RKE module will exit programming mode.

SOURCE: Cam Shaft Sensor Problems

Had the same problem before on my 04 Neon SXT...camshaft sensor is on left side of engine block, take out the battery and to the left of it (face car) is the camshaft position sensor. To change it you'll have to move a few hoses but its plan to see there on the left side of the engine...pretty easy remove and replace. Fixed my problem of car not going above 2k RPM when i replaced the sensor.

SOURCE: 2003 Dodge neon, car won't start, battery dead.

Its asking you to check the fuses, one of them must be blown and is also causing the battery to drain its charge. So first check the fuses in the dashboard, check the wiring for any shorting of the circuit and then get the battery recharged once.................sodeep

SOURCE: 2004 Dodge Neon SXT, added new battery need code to reset car

if you are the original owner, look in your paperwork. if you cant get to the original owner or they dont have the info, you can go to your dealer, and they can reset it for you. and charge you

or you can just start entering codes till it works, which will take you weeks or more.

good luck

SOURCE: My Dodge neon A/C only work when I press on the

look in the fuse panel at fuse #22 and fuse # 23 for power. fuse # 22 controls the a/c compressor clutch relay, and fuse # 23 controls power to brake switch. with the car running and the a/c switch on check for power on both sides of both fuses again. remove fuse # 23 and recheck for power on the a/c fuse. if no power to fuse for the a/c then you either have a short in the wiring between the a/c and the brake switch fuses. if you have had someone to do any electrical work on the inside of the car they have tapped into the wiring under the dash or the fuse panel to connect the the two wires together to get power. the brake switch wire and the a/c wires are not on the same circuit. the wire you can check on the outside next to the fuse panel will be a pink/dark blue wire controlling the brake switch (power). and the wire for the a/c compressor clutch relay will be red/ lite green or red/ black controlling power to the relay. you may look under the fuse panel to see if the wires for fuse #23 and # 23 are touching together causing a short.hope this will help!!!!

Brake light dodge neon 2002

Check the brake fuse in your dash's fusebox. Since the turns work, you know the bulbs are good, unless your Neon has separate brake lights. If the fuse is good, bulbs are good, then check for power at the brake light switch on the upper portion of the brake pedal. Should have 12 volts there all the time. Use a testlight or voltmeter to check. Good luck.

I have a 2002 Dodge Neon. Drove my car to work and when I got off work my car had to jump started. The brake light,odometer and seat belt light was blinking for the 20 minute ride home and the battery...

Since the battery light was 'on', it seems the vehicle's charging system has failed.
Get the charging rate, and probabley the alternator will need overhauling.
