2004 Dodge Neon Fuse problem?

To put it short, we left the lights on for a while. We used jumper cables to crank it back up but didn't leave it on long enough. We come back out, it makes a skipping noise when we try to jump it again. Tried jumping from a diff car and no result at all, not even the skipping sound. When I tried to turn the key, the odometer read "FUSE". Couldn't find my manual that details which fuse is which, any solutions?

Sounds like corroded battery terminals/cables. The battery should have held a charge after jump starting. When a car won't even jump start, it's a sign of a dead battery or corrosion on the posts or cables. Throroughly clean the posts and cables and try to jump start again. The error code should clear itself since the battery would be disconnected. If you are not able to jump start the car, post back and we'll diagnose further. My guess is cleaning the posts and cables will get you running again. Best of luck!

The problem you are experiencing has to do with the dome light, faulty door pin, and/or delay turn off module.

The dome light comes on when a connection is made to ground. Typically, this happens when you open a door - power is always going to the light (as long as the fuse is in), but the light will only come on when grounded, which is where the door switch comes in (completes the circuit).
You have a short to ground somewhere in all that wiring, which includes all door switches, the delay timer, and the illumination/dimmer switch.
In most instances you have to replace the timing module that controls the dome lights.

Your "leaving the lights on for a while" may be a failed door pin switch, and not your fault at all.

My 2005 dodge neon's battery won't hold a charge, lights flicker and dim and on the dashboard the word fuse flashes, what is going on?


Could be a bad battery but I suspect your battery cable is either loose or corroded or dirty. Before you pull the battery disconnect your battery cables and clean them both ends and when you put them back on make sure you have good connections and tighten good.If that does not work pull your battery and get it tested at a battery out let . they should do that for free.

When not running the engine for a week, the battery dies. When I jump start it, engine will start cranking very slow and pickup speed before it starts running.


it seems like the battery is going. clean battery terminals, also the grounding to the body (engine block, transmission, etc.) all should be shiny cleaned. suggest you go to autozone (or other auto parts) for a free battery & alternator tests.

I have a 1995 ford mustang and im at a total loss my headlights are extremly dim the passenger side is so dim it might as well not even be on ive put new bulbs in it and a new headlight switch and even...


Like Pit Crew, my first suspision is a bad ground [aka earth] or a bad connection in the power supply to the headlamp. If the left headlamp is normal, that eliminates the headlight switch and dimmer switch. Unplug the electrical connector from the passenger side headlamp. Using a set of 14AWG or heavier jumper cables, connect the lamp to the battery via the jumper cables. If the lamp is bright, use the jumper cable only for the ground or the power. This should point you in the direction of the problem. The ground point for the passenger side headlamp, parking lamp and turn signal is the same. It's G103. You should find this ground wire on the passenger side of the radiator support. Remove the wire and clean the connection between the wire terminal and the sheet metal of the radiator support.

Saturn jumper cables hooked up backwards


Try charging the battery more. Even though your lights may come one, starting a vehicle requires massive amounts of amperage from the batter. It's possible that your jumper cables aren't a thick enough guage to supply enough power as well. Sometimes the vehicle you're jumping from might not have enough power to support your vehicle's starting power requirements.

The radio won't turn on in my 2004 dodge neon


Has any work been done under the dash. Sounds like you have wire grounded to radio or something else the fuse sends power to.
Maybe you could unhook hot wire to radio. if fuse blows again you know it is not the radio.

2004 dodge neon will not turn over


have you replaced the battery? the car draws it's electricity from the battery, then the alternator replaces the charge to the battery. if the battery is shot and will no longer hold a charge the car will not stay running once you remove the charge as in removing the jumper cables

Left lights on for couple hrs, ran the battery down. After connecting jumper cables and drove home it wouldnt start back up.


It could be a number of things like a short in the wiring harness but a simple test would show maybe the alternator is wore out or shorted. Start car after leaving the negative battery cable loose enough to take off. If you disconnect it and car dies it is the alternator. Hope this is all it can be as wiring problems can be very expensive and thanks for using FixYa.

you need to leave the jumper cables on for about 10 minutes to charge the dead battery enough to start the car.
