Question about Cars & Trucks

2003 Dodge neon

Everytime i turn the lights on it will **** but as long as i have no lights on or the radio on it will run just fine. I had the alternator and battery checked and the with lights off it was putting out 45 amp with it on 60 amp. They said it looks like its bogging the motor down. Any ideas as to what it could be would be helpful!

The rectifier in the alternator is bad,and loading the engine down,replace the alternator,and make sure the post on the battery,and cable ends shine after you clean them.

I have a 2003 dodge neon and everytime I stop at a red light my oil light comes on but as soon as I take off it goes off. Oil has changed a month ago, it's full and still clean. What could cause t


Your motor is getting Tired or your Oil Pump is going bad.

Dodge has a problem with their motors and their Oil Passages get GUNKED really bad. This is what you should do,...

A. Get 1.5 Quarts of Diesel Fuel and drive to where you have your Oil changed

B. Add the Diesel Fuel to the Oil and let it IDLE (don't Drive the car under operating conditions). Let it Idle for 15-20 minutes and then have your Oil Changed

C. Have them use 20W-50 Oil, this is going to raise your oil Pressure and the light will not come on anymore.

Reason... Metal parts are wearing and that is oil gets into the system to lube the bearings. Pump Screen may be clogged and this will dissolve the Carbon Build up.

Good :Luck

It sounds like your ignition tumbler is going back or your ignition switch. Hopefully this helps you out and gives you a place to start looking. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask. Good luck.

"fuse"


Had a similar problem. Apparently the driver had driven a little too far into a parking place and struck the front of the frame (Neon has a low frame) with the concrete parking block. A wire got pinched and eventually failed shorting that fused wire to ground. Check that. It fixed my daughters 2001 Neon and it now starts and runs. BTW, do the turn signals work. With mine, the headlights worked, the radio worked, etc but the turn signals didn't work and the car wouldn't start. My problem was found by a 'fantastic' mechanic, not me.

How old is the battery? Clean the connections, charge the battery. Try starting it. Get the battery tested at Autozone or some place like that.

the computer may need to be reflashed. if it is running then it is not a bad sensor. either of those being bad would cause it not to run.
