You may need to call a lock smith. if you attempt to remove the cap by force you will damage the filler neck adn cause an evap system leak. if you cut the cap off i would be concerned with debris falling into the fuel tank and causing drivability problems not to mention the possibility of making a spark at the top of you fuel filler neck,.... well you see where that is going. maybe there is a number stamped on teh cap near teh key hole that would be helpful to teh locksmith.

I recently purchased a 2001 dodge neon thats missing the radio. When i unlock and open the door the alarm goes off untill i start the car. Car runs with no problems.

Are you using the key to open the door or the key fob? The key fob should turn off the security once the door is unlocked.

The key turns hard in the doors and the ignition and in the trunk...the trunk will not open

Sounds like the key might be worn. Do you have a spare key? Does it do the same thing?

Key no longer works in ignition. I stopped to gas up and the key I normally use would not open the gas cap door. I re-entered the car and the key would not turn the ignition. The key unlocks the steering...

take it to a lock smith to remove the broken part or you could jam the broken part down to where the ignition will turn with the broken key. I advise taking it to a lock smith to remove the broken part

1995 dodge neon trunk will not open. Key works

Hello, you could pick up one of those little containers of lock deicer and lubricant and spray it in the key lock. From the description the key lock works intermetiatly. After you put the spray in work the key in and out a few times and work at turning the lock. While your trying to turn the key try moving it in and out slightly. Your key lock might just be freezing up from lack of use.

Could be the immobiliser.  Do you have the original keys?  If your key does not have a remote unlock, it's likely to be a "spare" key, which doesn't have an immobiliser chip in it.  If you take your VIN to your dealer, they can get you a new key - at a cost.  I've been quoted over $400 to have a key replaced.
Hope this helps.
