Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt. I had been having problems with the car, it would start missing and backfiring as I drove. When I would get in the gas, it would do this everytime. I would shift to neutral, turn key off, then restart it and it seemed like it would reset something and drive fine until I would realy get in the gas again. But the last time I attempted this, the car did not restart and I coasted off the road. When I started working on it, I disconnected the battery. This was a big mistake because it cleared my codes so now I cannot diagnose the problem. I have replaced the cam sensor, crank sensor, and the coil but I still have no spark. I now have no idea what would be causing the car not to fire. Please help

You did several things wrong

You continued to use a vehicle that wasn't working properly
That was the biggest mistake

Yes --you lost your codes but the car can still be diagnosed,
just not by you

You did what everyone does & that is throw parts at it & waste money

Logically you first have to find a problem,any problem,then fix it
& continue on

You have to do the proper TESTING to find a problem
Then ONLY the PARTS THAT FAIL A TEST get replaced

You need a repair shop,then educate yourself on today's
technology for future work by yourself.

Without professional scan tool & basic electrical knowledge
your done,everyone is

SOURCE: My Dodge Neon will crank, but not start?

If you are asking about the battery light, there is a battery temperature sensor at the front of the battery tray to the right of the battery holddown hardware. If the snow loosened the wires or blocked the airflow to the sensor, the battery light will come on. The battery and alternator voltage can be correct, and the sensor will make the light come on.

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Camry Won't start.

you should check 3 things. AIr, Fuel, and "spark"
your cars could have many problems. Ignition module, fuel injectors, Mass Airflow Sensor.
You should check into all of these 3 things.
a crank-no start could be many things.
it could even be a cam positions sensors resistance going up when the engine heats up. Cracnk- no start means testing. n like i said
The motor is getting Air, There is Fuel being put into the cylinders, and the Spark plugs are firing.

SOURCE: 98 Dodge Dakota "pick up coil" cam position sensor repeat failure

Honestly? Cruddy parts.

I have a Dodge Stratus....97....same thing here. Unfortunately, shoddy parts, even from the dealership. I think the best thing is to keep a fresh one on hand. I know that the wiring is garbage too due to how the harness curls up to the sensor. Not much to tell you on this one.

I have 2 engine codes on my 2005 dodge neon. they are p0325 and p0340. the car has problem starting and misses badly for a while. What is the problem and how do i fix it? thanx for the help!


the p0325 code pertains to a knock censor. the p0340 is for your cam shaft sensor. i've had this problem before. try replacing the cam shaft censor first and run the codes again to see if the other still comes up. it should fix the problem. hope this helps

I own a 2005 Dodge neon SXT. Once in awhile a solid red circle pops up on my dashboard. What does this light mean?


The red circle means there is an intermittent problem with your vehicle security.If your car starts and runs fine it would be hard to diagnose until it wont start at all.
