Question about 1997 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

My 1997 Dodge Neon shuts off on me, but starts right back up.

When I'm driving, my car, it just shuts off on me, and all power is lost.. But it starts right back up.. I've had an oil change, cooling system flush, wire changed to battery, and it continues to do so.. Any suggestions, it would really help... Thank You..

It might be what I recently found out about mine. take it to an auto parts store and run a diagnostics test and if a code p0505 comes up then it would be your Idle Air control motor circuits

I had the same issue and it turned out to be grounding issues. by that I mean ALL of my grounds were rusted/loose/ too small wire/ ect.

To curb this issue i had to locate multiple grounding wires on the engine and that little wire running from the ground terminal to the front cross member was heating up because so much current draw through it- after locating grounding wires, Sanding the connections and using petroleum jelly AND replacing the ground terminal and Positive terminal the issue cleared up.

The only reason i knew it was ground issues on my car was finding that one chassis ground wire heating up from just running my car.

After it kills, pull a plug wire and check for spark. If it has spark, check for fuel. I can't remeber where the service port is on the F.I of a Neon but it'll look like a tire air valve cap but a little larger. It''l be on the fuel rail or line somewhere under the hood.

Take the cap off and depress the valve. If fuel doesn't squirt out (not drip), you're losing pressure. Neons were bad about fuel pumps so it MIGHT be this. They run a little over $200 for just the pump. I had a retail unit that kept doing this due to fuel deposits from Ethanol. It kept clogging the "filter" sock in the tank. After it set a while the stuff would sink back to the bottom and the car would start back up.

SOURCE: My 95 dodge neon wont start! I parked the car and

Solenoid should be just behind the front bumper, hanging off the side of the starter. Try tapping it with a solid object like a hammer or 2x4. Sounds primitive but sometimes that can get it started one last time to get it where it needs to go. Unfortunately if it is the solenoid, you really can't buy them separately anymore. Take it to the shop.

SOURCE: need wiring diagram for 2000 dodge neon

i would recommend buying a Haynes manual, as they have very good diagrams and schematics. If you do not want to buy one, though, you can create an online garage on Autozone.com by registering (which is free) and add your car to the garage to get access to a free manual online. These manuals are kind of hit-or-miss, though, and i have had mixed results with them. But for free, it is worth looking into first.

i hope this helps,
matthew

Dodge neon shuts off while driving


the neon has a problem with the wiring near the engine mounts in that it breaks or otherwise looses connectivity and that set of wires are for the cam position sensor
with that sensor not reporting to the ECM , the engine is turned off when there is not reaction from the engine , connection is restored and so ti start up again
check in the wiring harness in that area for the problem

that code is set when you disconnect the battery. It can happen if you have bad connections. Sounds like you have a lot of things wrong.

My boyfriend hooked a toggle switch up to my fan in my 97 dodge neon, he got the fan to work, but now my car won't start! We thought it just drained the battery, so we tried to jump it, but that


Where did he get the power from to run the fan,if he just used a hot wire from inside the car it most likely blew the fuse for ignition as the engine fan gets its power from a relay in the power distribution box under the hood as far as the fan goes if it ran with the wire then the engine coolant temp sensor is probably bad

I have a 1997 dodge avenger es 2.5 liter here's


Check the vacuum line on the fuel pressure regulator for any sign of gas being sucked into the line. A failed regulator will let extra gas get into the engine. If it's okay, have the fuel pressure checked. That's sure a lot of gas, way too much for the engine. Good luck.

Lost all electrical car died wont start


Will it start when you give it a jump or install a good battery? If it does the problem is your alternator. What most likely happened is the alternator quit working while you were driving and the car was relying on the battery directly to keep it going in which the battery completely lost power and shut the car off.
