04dodge neon sxt Sounds like it want to start but won't turn over

My 04 neon sxt has about 47k on it and it will act like it is going to crank but wont turn over. after several trys it did turn over but the check engine light remained on. what could it be. Only had the car about 2 weeks. runs great and is in great condition. I have seen a car fax report on it and it said it had a new battery and starter installed at 35k. what could be causing this.

    Yes I am writing an answer to my own problem. It turns out my cam (shaft) sensor had gone bad. It was working intermitently. I got the car to start that day and took it to an Advance where my friend works adn had them read the code the computer threw and it was a cam (shaft) sensor malfunction we clear the code and the car ran fine until the other day when my car would not rev over 2500 RPMs and sounded like the exhaust system was rattling. Turned out my Cam (shaft) sensor was working and not working on and off AKA intermitently. Once the Cam sensor was changed out the car ran liek a dream. No problems turning over no problems getting up to speed.



    Thanks to those who helped!

Check your battery voltage with the car running and verify that your alternator is working (should see 13.5-15v if it is)

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

Hi its me again. 2005 Dodge neon sxt. Auto tranny, put key in, turned it, started to crank for split second, all electrical went completely dead, no dome light, no head light, no dash light. battery was...


Ok, even if the battery is new, get a voltmeter and measure the battery, if its below 12v, thats the problem. That way you completely eliminate all these factors without a doubt. Also check negative wire from battery to the ground box and connections. It sounds more like a corroded terminal.

Car won't start 2003 Dodge Stratus sxt coupe cranks but won't start what could b the problem? I tried spraying starting fluid in the air system but it still won't start!


i would check and see if spark pluges are firing. you can take one out and plug into spark plug wire then let the bottom of the plug sit on engine and get someone to try to start while you look at the plug to see if there is any fire. if you have no fire or fuel it would be the crankshaft sencer. it could be the timing belt but the motor would sound different turning over then it used to.

My 2005 dodge neon sxt wont start, no spark, changed cam shaft sensor, coil is good, cant find the crankshaft sensor, also wondered if it could be the timing belt, what do you think?


the crank sensor is on the back side of the engine just above the oil pan there will be two sensors there one is the crank sensor and the other is oil presser sensor. All so check the wires from the crank sensor to the cam sensor. If you think it is the timing belt pull the cover and check it. hope this helps.
