    At first the radiator fans came on and would not turn off, even when the car was turned off and the key was removed. Now the fans won't come on at all. I installed a new radiator about six months ago. Cooling system was working great until about a month ago. HELP PLEASE!!!!

I own a 1997 Dodge Neon. My car started to overheat while idling especially with the air conditioning on. We ended up resolving the problem by replacing the fan relay switch which is located under the battery case near the driver's side wheel well. It is a small black square sensor that is approximately 1 1/2 inches across and about a 1/4 inch thick. It was $50 dollars. However, it took us several repairs to figure this out. We first took the fan out and checked to make sure it was working. An easy test is to turn on the A/C and the fan should run if the A/C is turned on. We connected the fan directly to the battery and it worked fine. We then replaced the collant temperature sensor which is located on the engine cylinder on the driver's side under a few hoses, it was difficult to get to. The last option was to pull the PCM computer and replace it which is an expensive option. New PCM's run around $300.00. Ultimately the fan switch relay fixed the problem. Hopefully this helps!

Hello, Try starting the car, then turn on the ac. The engine cooling fans should automaticaly come one once you turn the ac on. If they don't it could be your relay or the fans.

because you removed the battery this sometimes corrupts the CPU program so use a scanner to reset the CPU and see if that fixes the problem.

My 2004 Dodge Neon is overheating


you might have air in the cooling system, or water pump might not be functioning right, I would try burping the system first too see. with the car off and cooled down pull the radiator cap off and start the car, let it run for about 30 minutes should force all air out of the system, keep a eye on the coolant level while doing this.

We just bought our daughter a 1998 dodge neon for her first car. High miles..170,000. It ran great but the next day after bringing it home it began to make a Scrapping noise...LOUD! It sounded like...


This could be badly worn struts/rotars. For having 170,000 miles a lot of things could be worn. When did it make the scrapping noise? when you hit the brakes? If it sounded like it came from the rear of the vehicle i would have the axles checked for rust/old damage.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
