Question about 1999 Plymouth Neon

2000 Plymouth Breeze won't start

Step-son has a 2000 Plymouth Breeze 2.4L car. Couple of weeks ago he said it started getting hot. Eventually it died and would not start at all. We checked the fuel pump and it was working. Checked the coil pack with a multimeter and it was good. Upon further research I found that if either the camshaft sensor or crankshaft sensor are bad it won't get any fire at all from the coil pack. When I went to remove the camshaft sensor I found that the wires were melted and looked like they had been for a long time. To the point the melted plastic just came off like dust. Anyway I can replace the wire I just need to know what color the wires are and where do they go or connect to?

SOURCE: 1997 Neon dies, starts after electric fuel pump relay swapped

Hello, I would assume this is your fuel pump inside your tank. I would first however do some basics like a general tuneup. For starters I would replace your spark plugs and wires, rotary cap and button and check your fuses. Run some injector cleaner through your system. You know quick simple cheap things before you get to the fuel pump inside the gas tank which can be kinda expensive. The warm up then dies can be caused by, "blownout or fouled," spark plugs. I hope this gives you a general direction in which to go. A sidenote is that coil packs do not normally run an igntion code and I for one do not like them becuase they are expensive.

Start by checking for a wire shorting to ground if that checks good you will need to go thru the circuit and check the amp draw at each component, fuel pump,ignition coil,ect. until you find the bad part

Yes, I had this on my 97 Stratus....could be a couple of, the there may be damage to the wire connector harness going to that sensor. That was the problem with mine. I replaced the cam sensor, crank sensor, coil pack, mas ended up being a burnt spot on the wire harness. They said this is a common problem for the stratus/breeze/cirrus/intrepid.....the most it could be is a bad ECM....there is a bad pin on it located half way down the side where the big connector is. It is the silver block with the big wire harness going to it in the engine compartment. Try wiggling that around...the harness area.

This looks like you have the fuel tank vacuum. When is in repaus, the tank is sucking some air. When you start the engine, the fuel pump is sucking the fuel from tank and if this don't have a breathing hole or if this is clog or obturated then the fuel pump cannot **** anymore fuel and the engine stops. If you let it for a period of time alone then the tank might **** some air but not enough, so the engine will start but the simptome will show again. I had this simptomes with my car. Try to remove the fuel tank cap and see if you can drive more than 6-7 miles. If so, then the special breathing air hole in the fuel tank is clog. Identify it and clean it. I am not so sure about this problem but is just an ideea. Might be helpfull, who knows? Otherwise should be a PCM problem. In this case you should make a computer test. Good luck!

97 Plymouth Breeze won't blow cold air due to freon leak.

Your AC system is a closed system, so the fact you have to put more Freon in, means there is definitely a leak. I would check it out with a mechanic.

Just got a 2000 Plymouth Breeze last week (Feb 11th, 2015) Twice now on the freeway going about 70 mph my car died. No signs just died. I was able to restart it right away, and no warning lights.

An owners manual wouldn't help you much in this case. And neither will a shop. If you can't make the problem happen on demand, its going to be tough to diagnose.
Usually if it quits and starts back up, its something electrical, but that could include dozens of components, including the key switch and several relays.

My plymouth breeze won't start, won't make a sound, but my lights and horn still works , help me.

any real answer yet? did the problem ever get resolved? i have the same problem with my sister's car. too cold to diagnose tonight, but will post the solution probably tomorrow. since the lights and heater works, but ignition and radio arent getting power, my first guess is there's probably a fried fusible link which controls the 2nd accessory power to the ignition switch. will post a solution soon.

that is possible I have had cars do that before. although fixing it will not be easy because of the setup. You need to get the front cover off and check the timing marks to see if the cams are in time with the crank if one cam is off you can lose one or more cylinders...
