Check your power wire to the pump. It must have a bare spot somewhere, and is grounding out. Probably on top of the gas tank.

I replaced the fuel pump in my 2004 dodge neon and it still keeps blowing the fuel pump soon as i start it it blows..

There is a wire grounding out somewhere. Start from the fuel pump (u know that is good) and follow the wires inspecting them carefully for any chafing or corrosion. It should go up thru the floor around the back of the back seat. Pop the seat out and continue looking at the wires taking the wrapping off as you go. It may be bad under the carpet where water collects from boots and shoes, so look at these areas carefully for corrosion. Happy hunting!!

My fuel pump fuse keeps blowing on my 97 neon. i replaced fuel pump. no help.

What is no help ?

Surely you know what a fuse is for !

Replacing a blown fuse won't fix a thing

Have to diagnose the fuel system electrical,
to find a problem

Replaced the fuel pump why?
Was it tested & failed ?
No Fuel Pressure?

I have a 2002 dodge neon that everytime i try to start it the engine relay fuse keeps popping. i recently had a small accident that broke a few wires off the computer but the car still ran with those...

This all depends on what wires are broken. The most likely reason for the fuses popping is because of something shorting out against something else. Whether that be wire to wire or wire to frame.

I have a code 43 popping up on my 98 Dodge Neon SOHC. It says it is multiple cylinder misfire. I've changed spark plugs,wires,and the coil pack,and I still have a rough idle and doesn't have good power...

There is a very chance that it has jumped timing, I can’t remember does that engine have a timing belt or gears? If you can tell me that I can tell you how to check it

My 2004 dodge neon keeps blown the fuel pump fuse. Can some one help

It's either the fuel pump having the problem or you have short in the electrical wiring going back to the pump. Make sure the fuse is the proper size for the fuel system. Hope this will help you.

Fuel pump fuse keeps blowing on 99 dodge neon. Changed relay, but didn't help. Fuel pump or something else? It mainly does it when you hit the brakes.

Usually if a fuse blows when applying something else( brakes) indicates they are on the same circuit. Verify the brake lights don't work when the fuse is out or blown. If lights still are working then it's probably not related. If on same circuit then the extra load of the brakes is enough to blow the fuse. Insure you are putting in the correct fuse. Also, this indicates you fuel pump is in a strain either due to restricted fuel filter or worn pump. Replaceing the fuel filter now will only buy you a little time before the pump goes on out. It's blowing fuses because it's drawing more amps in order to run, but always replace filter when replacing pump.

1997 neon, fuel pump fuse keeps blowing

I had a neon that did this in my shop. I found one of the wires to the Oxygen sensors was melted near the exhaust and when you would give it gas the exhaust would flex and short out the o2 sensor.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
