If you start a Dodge Neon three times with an unchipped key the car will lock down, you have to contact a Dodge dealer to have them "unlock" the car. I found this out when I first bought mine, luckily I didn't start it three times with the blank key so I couldn't tell you how much it will cost a dealer to repair the problem, as I am assuming they just reset the computer. Or you could attach a diagnostic computer to the car, it will usually allow you to reset any issues which may work as well.

If the key is returning to the 'Run' position as it should, then either a relay controlling the solenoid or the solenoid itself is hanging up. The heavy contacts that send power to the starter can develop rough surfaces that can temporarily weld themselves together causing the starter to run on even though the engine is running and the key has returned to the proper position. There is also a spring that should normally help return the solenoid's contacts to their 'off' position that may be weakened.

Well it could be the pump itself going bad or a short in the wiring, possible clogged fuel filter. There is a valve what looks like a tier valve cap on the fuel rail if you can get you hands on a pressure gauge and hook it up, you should see the pressure increase and decrease, if it does not start looking elsewhere.
