    is there spark and gas present ? ...check all of your may be a bad ignition switch { worn contacts in the ignition switch itself but lets consider this the last resort at this point does it turn over at all / and just not starting completely or not at all. if not at all is the battery up to full strength , and have you examined all the wires to the starter for corrosion or broken etc wires ...if so it turns over just wont start check to see if you are getting fuel make sure to visually inspect all the vacuum lines to ensure everything is not dryrotted and that they are leading to their connections and that all wires are free of dryrot as well check all your fuses to ensure they are good check all your fluid levels aswell some models wont start from low fluid levels such as the oil etc... did you sheck the fuse between the negative cable and battery as well right now im in the process of eliminating so start withthose areas first terminal's

It sound like the nutral saftey switch their is a swith thats connected to the clutch arm up under the dash. When you push your clutch in it tells the computer that it's okay for the car to start because it knows then knows that the transmission is disengaged and in nuetral for saftey reasons. It's a pain in the but to to sometimes depending on how much room you have to stick your head up under the dash. Get a flashlight and just push the clutch in and out you might hear it click to help you find it. It might be a little box conected to the arm itself or just a simple switch that just pushs in and out. I hoped this helped you out. It would be appreciated if you could rate my answer. Thanks, Good luck MIKE-

2004 Dodge sx 2.0 runs great but check engine light is on.?

I take it the light stays on? You might want to check your air filter, might be stuffed. You can reset the Check engine light by disconnecting the battery while the ignition is in the 'on' position, either negative or positive( I generally go with the positive, feel better about it for some reason) leave disconnected for about a minute, during this time I turn the ignition to 'off'. Reconnect the battery, if the light comes back on, you might want to get it scanned with an OBD and see what error codes it gives you, could be an O2 sensor or anything.

I have a 2004 Dodge SX 2.0 and it wont turn on..the lights come on and the accessory lights come on but nothing from the doesnt even make a noise when i try to turn it doesnt turn over at...

it sounds like your lock rod cylinder in your sterring colum is broken. That can be expensive to fix! $500 or so. There is an alternitive though. Go to a alarm and window tint shop. Have the install remoteless key start up on you car. Car will start up fine. All your doing is bypassing the ignition swith and sending a signal to your starter directly. It will work beleive me. To check if this is your problem run a cable or wire from the starter to your batter from under the hood, if the car starts(make sure the keys are in the on postion) its your lock rod cylinder! If it doesnt its a bad starter or ignition switch...most likely ignition switch.

My cars engine turns over, but it won't start.

You'll need to determine if it's getting fuel, & spark, if you know how to check it. Also try cycling key on, off, on, off, on, and leave on and count flashes from check engine light. Will always be 2 digit number. For example flash, short pause, flash would be code 11, flash,flash,flash, pause, flash flash, would be 32. After every 2 number set, it will pause a little longer then start again if more codes are present. Try this and write them down & get back to us. These are trouble codes to try & tell you whats wrong.
