Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I own a 1998 2.0 dodge neon. I trying to figure out why my trunk light won't work, when I bought the car it was obvious that the trunk was replaced. When I look on the trunk lock mechanism there is a wire hanging and one attached to a ground bolt that holds the mechanism to the trunk. I think I am missing a jam switch or something

Locate the trunk light bulb.Trace the wires from it and see if a wire goes to the hanging one you talk about.If so then ground that wire and see if the light comes on.If not check the bulb and a positive feed to it.If no positive feed check the fuses.If the light does come on then you have a missing switch which is what it sounds like.Good luck!

SOURCE: 1995 dodge neon trunk will not open. Key works

Hello, you could pick up one of those little containers of lock deicer and lubricant and spray it in the key lock. From the description the key lock works intermetiatly. After you put the spray in work the key in and out a few times and work at turning the lock. While your trying to turn the key try moving it in and out slightly. Your key lock might just be freezing up from lack of use.

SOURCE: I am changing the alternator in a 1998 dodge neon, need diagram

No diagram...
The pivot bolt is the long bolt that holds the alternator to the frame.
If you loosen it, the alternator can "swing" with the pivot bolt as its .... well, pivot, or swing center.

The long bolt must be removed completely in order to remove the alternator.

Be sure to doisconnect the negative cable from your battery.

Hope this hleps w/o a diagram.

SOURCE: '91 LS400, trunk will not

If you hear the sound of the electric latch switch, then it's working but stuck somehow. Just put the key in the switch and turn it to the right and then pull up the trunk or ask someone to help you. it will open. I tried it today and it opened with me. It was stuck from inside by some kind of a broken plastic pieces. Just removed it and now it's working fine. good luck

Water leaking into the back passenger floorboard of Plymouth 1998 Neon


I had the exact same problem with my 1995 neon. It was leaking around the tail light. I pulled the tail lights off and put a heavy coat of RTV silicone on the gasket, and 2 years later never happened again

Brake light dodge neon 2002


Check the brake fuse in your dash's fusebox. Since the turns work, you know the bulbs are good, unless your Neon has separate brake lights. If the fuse is good, bulbs are good, then check for power at the brake light switch on the upper portion of the brake pedal. Should have 12 volts there all the time. Use a testlight or voltmeter to check. Good luck.

Third eye brake light won't work and the buld is new. I've tried location the fuse and can't find on specifically for that, would it be tied to something else?


all of the brake lights are on the same fuse. If the other brake lights are working than the fuse is good.

If I remember correctly this third brake light is located in the trunk lid. I would suspect that there is a broken power or ground wire going to the socket for the bulb. The usually area for this to happen is where the wiring harness flexes when the trunk is opened and closed. I think the connector for the harness is in the same area and I'm pretty sure it is on the drivers side. Take a peak at the wiring in that area. you may have to remove some tape to get a good look. If there are wires broken than a simple repair should get it working again.

How do you get a 2000 dodge neon trunk open when the key won't work? No button in glove box.


The only other way I can think of is to remove the back seat to gain access to the trunk latch.
Otherwise, a locksmith would be my next solution.

Just bought a used 1998 Volvo S70 (as is). Have 1 remote & it opens the car. Have 3 keys that all start the car, open trunk, but none of them can open the driver's door. That is the only door...


obvious and thats because someone has damaged the lock ,go to dealer and order a new lock for that door with the chassis number and change the lock ,unless the back of the lock mechanism is damaged do the keys turn in the lock and nothing happens or wont they do into teh lock??

My 1996 dodge neon wouldn't start...mechanic told me it was the battery...replaced battery still after sitting for too long won't start took it to another mechanc...not the alternator. he said that a wire...


try and check for small lighting...under hood light, trunk light...maybe those turn off buttons could be stuck in. Or, maybe you have map lights under the rear view mirror on?
