You might think about checking the relay/fuse for the ignition/starter, if you look in the owners manual that will tell you exactly which ones to look at. if you have done that then start looking for a wire that was missed upon reassemble of the starter. 10-12 gauge signal wire may not be hooked up or it might be broken up the wire some where. check it out and let me know if i can try and help you anymore.

I have a 2004 Dodge Neon and I just replaced the battery and for some reason sometimes when I'm running a lot of errands when I turn it off it won't turn on again. It won't even make any noises...


Something is wrong in your start circuit. From battery to ignition switch, and ending at the starter solenoid. You would have to start checking for where power is lost between the switch and the starter. If you have power to the starter solenoid on the small wire at the starter (can check with a test light while someone holds the key in start), then the starter would need testing.

It sounds like your ignition tumbler is going back or your ignition switch. Hopefully this helps you out and gives you a place to start looking. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask. Good luck.

I have a 1996 neon. When you turn the key in the ignition the dash board lights come on but when you turn the key to start the car there is a click sound from starter ,the car does not start and the lights...


check your cables at the battery and the starter,,make sure they are clean and tight and check the water level in your battery if it is not a sealed battery and also have your battery tested, if everything is ok, it seems like you have bad starter.

Are there any main fuses on a 2001 plymouth neon


Have you checked the starter solenoid. Your battery + cable connects to this then + cable runs from it to your starter. You also have an ignition switch wire connected to this. Just follow your cable from the battery and it will lead you right to the part. Some times these will break inside or the contacts go bad inside and therefore you will not get power to start the engine, but you will have power to turn on lights or whatever other accessories.The part is about $15

My 98 dodge neon will not start., when i turn the key i can here the solenoid click but the car will not start, the battery tested good. and all ther fuses were fine also. do i need to change the starter.


Try finding someone to help ya on this procedure. While another person tries to start it, lightly hit the starter and see if it starts to work. If it does start working, then the starter is defective. If it dont start cranking over then check your battery cables for damage, lose or corrosion. Good luck.

1998 Plymouth Neon only "clicks" when you try to start it.


Hello;
Check the voltage at the battery. It should be in the 12.5+ volt range. Check your connections also to be sure they are clean and tight. A quick check to see if there is enough juice to crank the engine over is to turn the ignition switch to start and at the same time honk the horn. If the horn blows and the starter does not crank, you probably have a bad starter.
The starter is located on the radiator side of the engine block and is held to the transaxle by 2 bolts. Follow the positive cable to the starter. Hope this helps;
Thanks;
