Sounds like you need a new battery to me. If it were your alt, you would not be able to drive very far( a block) and the car would die. Take your car to local parts store, and they will test your battery for free, and some times even change it out for you,depending on time, difficulty and liability issues on your car.

SOURCE: Car does not start when it is warm/hot outside, unless jumped!

Hi, when you say the car won't start, do you also mean the engine specifically stalls--has a hard time engaging when the ambient/environment temperature is hot?

If so, I have a diagnostic article that will help solve your problem:

http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Vehicle_Car_Zone_Cars_Trucks_Vans_Engine_System_Engine_Stalls_When_Hot.htm

Three (3) common causes, according to the article, are 1) vapor lock; 2) percolation; or 3) a faulty PCV system.

Hope this helps!
Brad

SOURCE: car won't start gave jump

the starter is bad, locate the starter, it should look like 2 cylinders one lying on top of the other hit the smaller one of the two with a hard object like a hammer or a metal rod. be careful not to hit the back of the cylinders were the cables are loacted only the side round part of the cylinder. this will get the solinoid un stuck and it should start. you miht need to wack the soliniod a couple of time to get it unstuck it the solinoid is just plain dead you will need to repalce the entire starter. before you buy a new starter have them autozone or a autopart store test the original starter you will have to remove the starter in order to have them test it. do this after you have determined the battery is bad. pull the battery out and have an auto parts store test it. they usually do this test for free.

Sounds like a problem with the key switch, probably the security system. You may only have power to the fuel pump when the engine is cranking.
Is the security light on or flashing ?

try tapping the starter lightly with a small hammer to rule out a stuck armature. Also make sure all of your connections are tight.
Please explain how you "jumped" it. was it with another battery?

I have a 2004 Dodge Neon and I just replaced the battery and for some reason sometimes when I'm running a lot of errands when I turn it off it won't turn on again. It won't even make any noises...


Something is wrong in your start circuit. From battery to ignition switch, and ending at the starter solenoid. You would have to start checking for where power is lost between the switch and the starter. If you have power to the starter solenoid on the small wire at the starter (can check with a test light while someone holds the key in start), then the starter would need testing.

Could quite possibly be you have a bad starter. I would have it tested. Could also be a bad battery. If, when jumping it, you used too high of a voltage, could have shorted out a wire somewhere
