2001 dodge neon will not start! will turn on and make a noise like its gonna start but doesn't. Replaced fuel pump, sensors, and something else but the damn car wont start! what is the problem?? Please...


Hi:
My name is Tom and I know I can help you. I will go out on a limb and say: When you try to start the car you hear a clicking sound. That is your starter solenoid engaging. The car will not start because the starter is bad.

Therefore, detached the cables from the battery so no current can get to the solenoid and starter. Remove the starter.(If you have problems with this I can talk you through it). Take the starter and solenoid to you auto parts store and ask them to test your starter and solenoid.

Put in the new parts and reconnect the battery to the car. I believe that you will have not more problems.

Sounds like solenoid on starter has packed it in Try crossing solenoid terminal (small wire on solenoid) to power feed on starter (End of battery cable) If nothing happens Remove starter & renew solenoid

check the connection to your starter.you might not have enough current going to you starter allowing it to turn over or your battery may be low.

My car makes a wierd noise when starting it up


IF ITS MAKING A CLICKING NOISE WONT TURN OVER.CHECK BATTERY CABLE FOR TIGHTNESS AND NO CORROSSION. THE BATTERY VOLTAGE. SHOULD BE 12.5 VOLTS.IF NOT HAVE IT CHARGED AND TESTED.IF ITS GOOD HAVE ALTERNATOR CHECKED OUT.IF BOTH IS GOOD HAVE THE STARTER REMOVED TO HAVE IT AND THE STARTER SOLENOID TESTED.NOTE DUE TO LOCK OUT FEATURE.TURN OFF RADIO SO YOU WONT LOSE CODE WHEN YOU DISCONNECT NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.

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

I have a 99' Neon starting problem..


Well being you can pop start it,the engine isn't siezed. I would cut the insulation on both battery cables & see how nicely green they are. Then I would toss them for scrap,must recycle! & buy a new set of cables. You might have so much resistence in the cables,especially the ground to start the car.

1997 Neon Starter Solenoid Engages,,BUT


ase mechanic here, sounds like the starter is on its way out, will have to replace since you cleaned all the connections, but in the mean time try hitting the solenoid portion with some object and see if the engine starts. if so the starter needs replacing.
