Ust had the same problem. Think mine is either start relay or neutral safety switch. Just took small wire going to clip on starter (brownish) and bared area of wire 6 inches from clip (do not cut) and wrapped bare end of new wire around it, taped with electrical tape, ran that wire to a push button ( I used a horn relay button from Canuck Tire) and wire from other side of button to battery. Turn ignition on,,, push button and instant start. Make sure car is in park. Will replace defective part later but it'll get you to work or wherever and it'll prove it is not the starter motor. Cost of temporary repair.... $6.00 :D

Sounds like your not getting power to the starter. check the connections on the battery and the starter to see if any thing is loose. if not you could try taking off the starter, and taking it to a part store and have them test it.

2000 Dodge neon won't crank

Start by checking battery voltage, should be 12.5v to 12.8v. Then check battery draw, use a voltmeter on the battery while trying to start the car and watch the voltage drop, if drop is below 9.6v, it's not enough to start the engine and you will have to get your battery load tested. If there is no or very little voltage drop, then check the starter wire on the starter with the voltmeter, if the readings on the starter wire is battery volts, then you may have a bad starter. If no or very little volts at the starter wire, then go to the power distribution box and check for a faulty starter relay. Good luck, Gary

2004 dodge neon sx2.0 won't crank over Hi, My mechanic thought it was the starter because after he hit it, it started, So he said that it's fixed after he replaced the strater. He also claims that he...

Check and make sure the battery is good,have it load checked,then check the battery connections to make sure they are clean and shiny.No grey or black residue on the battery connection,or the battery terminals,where they go on the battery,this will act as a insulator,and the battery will not get charged up enough,or put out enough amps to crank the vehicle,if it still does this ,with all this checked and corrected,then the starer is defective,replace the defective starter with a new one.

You probably have a bad or failing battery. Will it jump start and continue to run OK?
