Its probably the anti theft system that is in all newer vehicles. One way to try to reprogram the anti theft is to put battery charger on battery then turn key to just before it starts the car leave it in that position for 30 minutes and then turn back off and do the same thing for 5 more minutes turn off and then try to start the car. 2. Try unlocking and locking the driver door 5 times without opening the door

It will need programming as the new immobiliser will not work in the CPU . Take it to a dealer service centre and they will have the equipment necessary to reprogram it all

SOURCE: 2000 Saturn SL2 - replaced ignition then BCM failed. Related?

the problem is not the bcm. the passlock security sensor is in the cylinder and housing, if the cyl and or housing was replaced the system must be relearned. if you replace the bcm you still need to relearn the system or it still will not start.

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 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,

SOURCE: 2004 dodge neon key will not turn in the ignition

It could be the tumblers in the switch, possibly a worn out key(try another key if you have one) or the steering may be in a bind, are the front tires against a curb.

While trying to turn the key try to turn the steering wheel in both directions.

Let me know what you find.


Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

SOURCE: 1997 Dodge Intrepid cranks over won't fire

I have this same NO START problem...
Began with tach giving readings not exceding 1200 rpm with strange 4000 + spikes.. Cruse control would not turn on or off at times and indicator light would only work sometimes..Had several episodes of excessive cranking to get it to start.. Stalling out while driving and even at freeway speeds.. Pulling the negative cable for 10 min. allowed it to start although with lots of cranking and put it in limp mode which required another computer reset to get out of.. Had thrown error codes related to cam and crank sensors which were replaced along with coil and manifold temp sensors.. Had the 9 volt power to sensors when key was on but the check engine light does not stay on with all the other idiot lights..
I wish people who respond would read the post first..
Original post states,
Cranks,No spark,No fuel pump run, changed some sensors ect...
If it cranks it ain't the neutral safety switch, starter or battery!! WAKE UP!!
Seems the computer is not turning on the coil, injectors or fuel pump for a reason.. Find that reason and you will find the solution to the problem.. Seeing as that the computers logic states are a dealer secrete the poster as I have changed many parts in blind hope that it will fix the problem.. Relays, sensors and ecu computer.. Did a visual check of all harness potential wear spots like where it crosses over the power rack..
Could it be in the wiring harness inside the dash??
Could it be a bad ground??
Can an alternator that has failed cause the computer not to start??
Can a bad oil pressure sensor cause the computer not to start??
Can signal loss from the TCU or BCU to the ECU cause this??
Is there an undocumented kill if the ECU thinks it was in an accident??
I can ground the relay line from the ECU and the fuel pump runs and pressures up and the other relays turn on as well..
This crank but no start problem seems to be common with a lot of 1994-2001 Dodge and Chrysler owners.. All these systems have become interlaced with undocumented safety features that baffle the DIYer..If you have seen this and have fixed it PLEASE RESPOND!!!!

I'm sorry but you may broke the clock spring connection from the column to the steering wheel.First make sure all the wire are connected under the dash after you work on ignition switch.
for clock spring disconnect the battery for 10 discharge the SRS system.
turn the wheels and steering straight.
remove the airbag and store in safe place
remove the steering wheel
remove column cover
disconnect the clock spring and remove
installation in reverse order
the new clock spring have yellow lock tab. after removing the tab DO NOT turn the spring. the wire inside have limit of 2 1/2 turns each way.
good luck

Someone tried to steal my car and popped the ignition, also causing damage to the black thing connected to the immobilizer. I have replaced the steering column, but car still will not start. Everything...

You need a new immobilizer and then have it and the keys reprogrammed to your car.
Here's a company that has pages and a description of how to rebuildthe ignition and lower portion of a Jeep (or Dodge) steering column. The removal of the lock cylinder is alsoincluded. They are broken down into stepby step detailed instructions on their website.

Have a 2002 dodge neon and the ignition locked up i had it towed and the tow truck driver told me it was my ignition switch... this isint the first time this has happened so after i got it home i just...

Inside the steering column the ignition switch ties in with the steering and shifter lock. The lock plate will sometimes get off center/ out of alignment especially if the wheels aren't straight. This can make everything lockup. If more jiggling doesn't help, you may have to remove the steering wheel and ignition lock, align or replace the lock plate (if damaged) It could also be that the casing on the ignition lock cracked or broke and part of it has jammed in there.

I need to remove the lock cylinder housing from the steering column of my 1998 dodge neon as it was smashed when it was stolen. I have removed everything from the steering column but the cylinder housing...

that is actualy a fact the reason is the pressure screws that are placed to hold these in place are actualy pressed in place. ok Well this is the deal you need a dremel Rotary tool and the cutting discs to cut a notch in the head of the of this screw for a flat tip screw driver to fit and then you just remove head on over to a junker do the same and reinstall

2001 dodge neon key turns no noise no click fuel pump doesn't even turn on, changed steering column out was fine before that.

Sounds like either the ignition switch on the column is not working or you have an ignition fuse blown. Check and make sure the switch is plugged up and have power coming out of it with key on. If no power coming out check the fuses then the switch. should fix the issue.
