It sounds like the Starter Solinoid is Frozen up. Get the Starter and Solinoid Checked and Possibly Replaced. If you have a Garage, Try putting it inside with a Space Heater at Night and see if that Helps. When it is that cold a Number of Things could go Wrong.

My 2005 dodge neon's battery won't hold a charge, lights flicker and dim and on the dashboard the word fuse flashes, what is going on?


Could be a bad battery but I suspect your battery cable is either loose or corroded or dirty. Before you pull the battery disconnect your battery cables and clean them both ends and when you put them back on make sure you have good connections and tighten good.If that does not work pull your battery and get it tested at a battery out let . they should do that for free.

97 dodge neon turn key have lights but no crank or no noises


Is the car still in gear? If it is, then it will not start till you put the car in park. I've done this before and the same thing happened, had radio, lights etc...till I put car in gear and it started. Check the gear selector, if it's not in park, then put it in park and try to start. Hope that helps.

1998 dodge neon wont turnover and headlights go dim and start flickering when i try to start it


Sounds pretty "cut-and-dry" to me. You need to charge or replace the dead battery, and make sure your battery cables are CLEAN AND TIGHT and then check to make sure your alternator is charging correctly.

If the altenator shows good, what would cause a new battery to go dead over night?


Hello,
An open circuit, ( an electrical short ), could cause it.

A bad connection at the battery terminals could cause it, not only can a bad connection prevent the vehicle from starting, it also prevents the alternator from putting a charge back in to the battery.

Often the battery cable clamps can crack on the bottom side and prevent the clamps from being tight enough for a good connection.

Also, very common in cold weather, even with a brand new battery, the new battery may not have the minimum cold cranking amps, ( MCCA ), to start an engine in the cold weather. You may want to make sure, if you already haven't, that your battery meets the manufacturer's MCCA requirement.

I hope this helps you.

Changing a brake light switch on a 1998 dodge neon


if you look under dashboard toward the top of the brake pedal assembly there is a little white/cream colored box mounted to the same bracket as the pedal, onec you locate this box all you have to do is turn the plastic unit 90 degrees and it will slide off the bracket, there is one electrical plugin on this switch. fairly easy job just difficult to get to
