Question about 2001 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Engine dies while driving.

While driving the speedometer, temperature, and gas gages all moved like windshield wipers and the car lost power and stopped running. After setting for 5 minutes it started with no other problems. One week later it did the same thing but could not get it to stay running till the next morning. When it was having problems I turned the ignition on and heard a noise from the rear of the vehicle. With the ignition on and the noise present the car would not start. It did not make any starting noises at all. After several tries the noise from the rear of the vehicle was not heard and the car started.

The noise you heard in the rear was the electric fuel pump working but it sounds like you have an electrical issue check your wire harness for areas that wires chaffed on metal and cause break in the electric current some known areas are inbetween the radiator and the transmission down towards the tranny pan also check fuse panel might have a loose fuse

Why does speedometer read 65, when I'm only doing about 35?


Circuit/System Verification
Important: If the suspect gage is the speedometer, the drive wheels of the vehicle must be raised and the transmission must be placed in drive or first gear.
  1. Ignition ON, with the scan tool, perform the IPC Gage Sweep Test in the IPC Output Controls. Verify that all gage dials move from minimum to the maximum value and back to the gage minimum value.
  2. ?‡'
    If the gage does not perform the IPC Gage Sweep Test, replace the IPC.

  3. Start the engine, with the vehicle drive wheels raised and place the transmission in drive or first gear. Verify that the speedometer value matches the scan tool Vehicle Speed parameter in the ECM/PCM Engine Data List.
?‡'
If the speedometer is incorrect, test or replace the IPC.

My battery light came on then my abs then the check engine light and all the Gage's comes on . When I turn the windshield wipers on it turn off everything


check that the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight. Check that the drive belt for the alternator is in good condition and adjusted as it appears that there is a loss of battery power

1996 camry lost speedometer and a/c while driving. Put in new battery and alternator, still no change and now car just lost all power while driving . What is wrong with car?


lost speedometer, what does that mean 0mph at 50? ??????
YES, CHECK all fuses first. all cars, for any electric issues.

A./c lost, (ok there are 6 things that cut A/c some are normal)
one is HVAC dash blower fan must blow or AC brain cuts A.C
this prevent ICE up. (normal)
please:
why guess? please stop guessing and throwing parts and cash.
what does lost all power, driving mean.???
lost engine power (cant drive)
or lost all electric power (a prime reason for EFI to die , for lack of 12vdc electric power)
does lights die on the car, at the moment of problems?
Dash cluster , head lights, any lights.
does engine STALL? (0 RPM is stall) 300 RPM is bad idle.
800 RPM is normal hot idle, never less.

if this is just and engine power issue, (cant drive at all ,or only slow or
slow up hills?)O
my car will not move fast,? in any gear? and transmission don't slip
and no DTC scan codes (checked and smart to do first)

I'd be all over fuel pressure. this is a $20 gauge , that must be connected to the fuel rail to read pressure.
28psi is minimum for all cars.
if i knew what engine was in your car, id look yours up
alldata.com has this info.

the ecu can not report wrong fuel pressure, it cant
so is always and issue, with total engine power loss.
so is skipping 60,000 mile FULL TUNEUP's

if you need those charts they are easy to get. for any car.

tell more get more.... regards

Gas gage and speedometer not working


You should start with you fuse block itself. For that many different things to be not working the one thing they have in common is the fuse box. if the fuses are good you may have a faulty fuse box itself. Use a voltmeter and test the slots to the fuses for each electrical item. If you dont have voltage going to your fuses then the box needs replacing. If you do then either fuses need replacing or damaged or broken wiring.

My rpm gage is not working, my speedometer is not working, my gas gage is not working, and my oil gage is not working, and my temperature gage is not working pretty much when i start up my car and drive it...


I'd wager that the fuse that controls the gauges is shot, or one of the internal connectors got unplugged (Fuse sounds more likely). Radio, Lights, and Turn Lamps are usually on seperate circuits.

My 1997 Ford F150 dies whenever i turn on wipers


sounds like a new problem, I would try unpluging the windshield wiper motor under the hood turn on the switch inside the truck and see if it still dies, if it doesn't suspect a short inside the wiper motor itself (replace wiper motor).
