1998 plymouth neon will not crank


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and they key switch. Also the ground connections.
Yes there are fuseable links.

HELP! My 2000 plymouth neon wont crank and no mechanic i bring it to can figure it out!!


If the headlights and dashboard lights are working but the vehicle still does not start, the ignition switch is most likely the problem. or a bad wire from switch. If your battery checks out, but the starter is still silent, it may be a faulty ignition switch. Turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start). If the red warning lights on your dash don't light up (and your battery connections are clean), the ignition switch is bad. If they do light up, turn the key to the start position. The dash warning lights should turn off at this key position (most cars). If you're not sure, turn on the headlights. When you try to start the car, the lights should either dim (a lot) or turn off completely. If they do, your ignition switch should be ok. If not, the switch will need replacement. check the wires to starter and see if you have power when car is switched on, do this first! good-day! if it cranks but does not start. check to see if spark and fuel, and check all fuses also.

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.

2ooo plymouth neon wont start it just clicks twice rplaced battery, park neutral switch and tested starter please help


Could be the ignition switch is worn out. Not the key part but the electrical part connected to the key. It has wires coming out of it.

Won't start


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.

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;
