Question about 2005 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Car takes a long time to start, won't go over 2000 RPM

I have a 2005 Dodge Neon, when I turn the ignition, it takes a lot of time to turn over and makes a "chunking" noise, finally goes. (This doesn't happen every time I turn the car on, but it is getting more frequent). Also, it randomly won't go over 2000 RPM so it won't shift gears, meaning I can go 20 mph on the freeway and can't get up any hills (which there are a lot of in Seattle!!).

Possibly unrelated, last night I tried to start my car, made a slight clicking noise and didn't start, the lights were really dim inside so I thought it was a dead battery. I tried to jump it, but nothing happened and I noticed that flashing on the dash display was "fuse". Could this all be related and, hopefully, just a blown fuse?

My car 2005 dodge neon sxt isnt turning over but my lights and radio come on could the problem be my car key pad and if so where is the reset button located?


Bobbie, No starter reset button, the problem could be faulty starter/solenoid, fuse, relay, bad wire/connection,security lock out, neutral safety switch,etc. best to have a good Tech. look at it and estimate repair.
Check the attached links,info.,instruction and guides, Good luck

2005 neon hard brakes engine races


While your car is running.......pop the hood and find the throttle body. The throttle body is where your air filter tube/hose goes to the engine. Locate the throttle position sensor which should be on the side of the metal throttle body. This should be the item causing this. If you grab the plug that is on the sensor and wiggle it while the car is running then the engine should rev and act up if thats the problem. If not let me know and I can direct you further. Thanks.
