Question about Dodge Neon

1 Answer

2005 dodge neon won't start but the dash lights will not go off and electrical system (radio, windows lights, etc) is fully functional even with the key removed from ignition. Disconnected battery and dash lights went out but as soon as battery was reconnected electrical was running again. What could be the problem and how do I get the electrical to go off other than disconnecting the battery?

    I have done plenty of repairs on previous cars, replacing radiators, water pumps, combination switches and such. Is this something I could do myself or is specialized equipment needed?

Sound like you have ignition problems, your ignition switch works like a master switch, over time it loose it contact. some has better luck than others. try to play with your ignition switch by wiggle the key and turning the key back and forth to see if you can get the contact to work. replacing ignition switch can be pretty expensive.

My 2004 dodge neon will not start head lights and radio work no dash lights.


Start from scratch, check all the fuses. Have someone with a little knowledge check all the wiring harness multi pin plugs. As some things are working I get the impression a harness plug either in the engine bay or under the dash is not fully engaged.

Why does my 2005 neon make no sound when the key is turned?


all the neon I have seen have way to small battery cables and ground wires. We had this issue with our neon. Replace both ground to engine block and battery to starter cables , and terminal ends with heavy duty ones . and add a heavy duty ground cable from battery to body. this will permit the charging / starting systems to work with greater efficiency.

Hi its me again. 2005 Dodge neon sxt. Auto tranny, put key in, turned it, started to crank for split second, all electrical went completely dead, no dome light, no head light, no dash light. battery was...


Ok, even if the battery is new, get a voltmeter and measure the battery, if its below 12v, thats the problem. That way you completely eliminate all these factors without a doubt. Also check negative wire from battery to the ground box and connections. It sounds more like a corroded terminal.

The radio won't turn on in my 2004 dodge neon


Has any work been done under the dash. Sounds like you have wire grounded to radio or something else the fuse sends power to.
Maybe you could unhook hot wire to radio. if fuse blows again you know it is not the radio.

2005 Dodge Caravan will not start and engine light flashing 10x


most likely it is the electronic control module which is the brain computer that runs the car and all of the functions and it is not allowing the electrical system to operate or come online. your power supply is not reaching the ignition due to some sort of either an electrical short or blockage.
