Just had the same problem. Think mine is either start relay or neutral safety switch. Just took small wire going to clip on starter (brownish) and bared area of wire 6 inches from clip (do not cut) and wrapped bare end of new wire around it, taped with electrical tape, ran that wire to a push button ( I used a horn relay button from Canuck Tire) and wire from other side of button to battery. Turn ignition on,,, push button and instant start. Make sure car is in park. Will replace defective part later but it'll get you to work or wherever and it'll prove it is not the starter motor. Cost of temporary repair.... $6.00 :D If you have problems with intermittent reverse lights or none at all that points right to the neutral safety switch being the problem. I think this is a common problem with 2000 neons.

Got 2000 dodge neon will start when cold run good but when motor warms up won't start


Nikki is the engine light on, are there any codes,have you had a tune up or any other work done lately.when you say it won't start when warm(do you mean engine will not turn over, or does engine turn and refuses to fire.
If I had to guess failing fuel pump, they tend not to build fuel pressure when ran a while(warmed up) and when left to cool build somewhat better pressure.

Can the pcm cause the starter not to turn in my 2000 dodge neon?


Is it getting fuel? Check the pressure regulator or the fuel pump. Even if you have the plug wires on wrong it should do something.

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.

The car turns over like it is going to start but won't. It is still firing, has good battery, alternator and gas in it. It is a 1996 plymouth neon. Started fine when I went to work this morning, b


tell individual working on it to check the crankshaft sensor voltage and signal when it wont start also check the fuel pressure and cam sensor, these are all possible problem with that particular car. it also has wiring issues that an expert tech would have to diagnose

WHEN I TRY TO START MY 2000 PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER I ONLY GET 1 CLICK AND NOTHING.IF I KEEP TURNING THE KEY BACK AND FORTH IT WILL EVENTUALY START IS THIS A STARTER ISSUE


it sounds more like a battery terminal that has corroded , or is just loose.
Check the battery terminals to be sure they are in good shape.
If they are , then I am thinking starter too.... like the click you are describing is the solenoid and the contacts are just not making contact to engage the starter motor...

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

Well it could be your fuel pump. That is most likely the first thing I would think of. Or it might just be your starter. Oh, since it won't even crank it will most likely be your starter. If its not that check your fuel pump.
