I had the same issue and it turned out to be grounding issues. by that I mean ALL of my grounds were rusted/loose/ too small wire/ ect.

To curb this issue i had to locate multiple grounding wires on the engine and that little wire running from the ground terminal to the front cross member was heating up because so much current draw through it- after locating grounding wires, Sanding the connections and using petroleum jelly AND replacing the ground terminal and Positive terminal the issue cleared up.

The only reason i knew it was ground issues on my car was finding that one chassis ground wire heating up from just running my car.

I've been going through a similar problem with no spark. It seems one issue could be the computer terminals have corroded on certain ground points. Turn the key off and on three times without starter engage and check your error codes . check engine light will flash two sessions for each fault code .
12 is battery disconnected in recent past and 55 is end of session . http://www.techknowman.com/Dodge%20Neon/Dodge%20Neon.htm.

    Check the cam sensor. on the cam end you have a magnetic disc. double check it has the locating pins and it has not loosened.

Check your engine wiring harness for a short or a broken wire. It has a black cover on it. Pull up slightly on the harness at the right side of the valve cover. There is a bracket that is bolted to the cylinder head in this area. You might have to **** on it, but do so with caution. Start the car & let it idle. Start pulling up on the harness as I described. If you pull too hard, you may disconnect a sensor by accident. If the harness has a short in it, the car should die like when you were driving it. If the car hasn't started since that day, the crankshaft position sensor may be bad.
