Could be battery like you said make sure all electricala connections from battery to solenoid to starter are thight and snug if that doesnt fix it then take the starter and hook it directly to a 12 battery or battery charger to see if it throughs out the gear and spins. do that a few times if it doesnt spin or 1 in 5 tries its doesnt spin then its probally you starting motor its self. you can try to start the car directly by connecting only the positive battery terminal with a booster cable and with the ignition in the on position touch the other end of the booster cable to the starting motors terminal. if the car starts goo then its most likely your solenoid or cables. if you try this make sure the car is in park "for auto" . or neutral on a manual transmission.

Just changed the water pump on a 2005 dodge neon and now it wont start. What could it be


You're not giving much to go on. Is it a 2.0L or a 2.4L?
You say it won't start. Does it turn over and not fire, or does it just sit there and do nothing when you turn the key?

Both engines require you to remove the timing belt in order to change the water pump. The 2.0L is definitely an interference engine, and I'm not sure about the 2.4L. But if the timing belt was not re-installed properly, it will result in a no-start condition since the valves will not be in sync with the pistons and spark. Best case scenario you correct the issue and are good to go. Worst case scenario is that if the belt is out too far, you bent valves and have to service the head(s).

If timeing is off will this mess up the engine


Yup! All Hyundai motors are interference! If the timing marks were off 2 or more teeth, suspect valve damage

I'm leaning towards your TFI module on the Dizzy. They get hot from engine and are a known issue by ford. I included a picture of what the TFI or ignition module looks like in your Stang. Be sure to tell the store clerk if you have a auto or manual when you purchase one Good Luck Ryan MN

recheck the timing belt to make sure it was done right,if the belt slips your engine will not start, maybe it was installed incorrectly.

Wont start


The fuel pump will run for a short time when you turn the ignition key on to prime the line then waits until the engine is running. Check the fuel filter and replace if plugged then check the fuel pressure should be abouve 27 psi
