Question about 1997 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Starter licking, but starter good..car wont turn over

I have a 97 Dodge neon. I ran it other day to a friends, went inside to talk for about an hour and when i came back out the car would not start. The starter just makes a clicking sound. I know the starter is fine cause husband also has a 97 neon and we put his in my car and my starter in his car and his starts fine but my car still just has the starter clicking. The crank turns so motor not locked up, battery is at 11.9 on a volt meter with car off(as it wont start). Please help, I hate to throw the car away. Thanks, Neon mom

    Thank you. I have to wait to try this, as the car is not at my house had to leave it in town 10 miles away when it died, cops are a little rude and wouldn't let us tow it on a chain behind a semi(with no trailer)..lol.. so I will try tomorrow and let you know...Thanks for the info.

    if they alternator is bad wouldnt the battery be low..and why would it not let the car even try to turn over...changed alternators and still doing the clicking noise

    Would a bad PCM cause this problem also?

2000 plymouth neon wont turn over it just clicks twice replaced battery tested starter and it is good


Try replacing the hot cable from the battery to the starter, replace the clamp, cable and all. Sometimes they corrode down inside.

1997 Dodge Neon. New battery. Ran fine for a couple of days now it wont start. All I get is a ''click''. Had starter tested and it was fine


If battery is good and fully charged and starter is good, possibly starter solenoid, if not on the starter. Also check battery cables, make sure that all 4 ends have good clean solid connections.Also cables themselves can get so corroded inside that the fix is to replace them. Good luck, please rate this. Thanks
