Question about 1998 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

98 neon problems running

I had my car stall on me while driving through a parking lot. I could start it up and it would run for about 10 seconds and then it stalls. It does that consistently. When I try to drive it in those ten seconds it dies automatically. I ran my pcm trouble codes and only came back with a #12, which is Direct battery input to PCM was disconnected within the last 50 key-on cycles. That shouldn't keep it from running. I think that it might be a fuel pump relay, cause the engine is obviously getting primed, but it doesn't seem like the fuel pump picks up from there. The problem is, the book doesn't tell me ****. No troubleshooting section, and only one paragraph on what realys are, not what they do or where they are located. Can you help me by providing me with more info or opinions?

    yes I can hear the fuel pump kick on and the priming system is working, but after that it cuts out. It only runs for 10 sec.

    It is not on the engine at all! You are a moron and I am sorry I tried this place. It is in the fuel tank. This is why I don't use online help. The only reason I was here is because my brother recommended it. Can someone more intelligent with more experience then what they learned in the classroom answer this question. I will give you one chance to redeem yourself, cause everyone makes mistakes, but time is of the essence right now. This is a project that can't wait.

    Easiest thing to do would be to get the fuel pressure tested . Can you not hear fuel pump hum for short time when key cycled to on (not start)?

It appears you may have a bad ignition coil that cuts out after it gets hot. Not uncommon.

How do i fix a rough idle and stall?


Hi Cody:
I'd be checking all of the vacuum hoses and the PVC valve.
Also it wouldn't hurt to put some fuel conditioner like SEAFOAM through it.
My approach tends to be to make sure the basics are looked after before starting to second guess for major problems.
Cheers.

1998 dodge neon stalls after awhile wait a little bit then it will start and go for awhile then stalls again.


Not trying to highjack your post. I just bought a 98 neon sport, manual sohc 2.0. Im having the exact same issue i think, car will run for a while then tac drops to zero and it dies, 5-40 minutes later i can restart but i usuall only make it a few blocks and it dies again, wait again and it will restart. Did you solve this problem with your neon and if not can anyone give me more places continue to diagnose. It has new cam and crank sensors, fresh plugs, wires and coil, new battery. I got the car cheap, thinking of fuel savings but i dont want it to became a parts money pit.

Get those new codes, sure sounds like a MAF issue, also I have run across engine movement stalls, they turned out to be a break indside the engine harness, when the engine moved it would break the connection and stall or run really bad, I found these kinds of problems by pulling and twisting the harness to the engine, then I would cut it open and do the same thing wire by wire.

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.
