Question about 2005 Dodge Neon
Put a volt meter on the battery at idle it should read approx 13.5 volts. if it does not the alt is not charging the battery. That does not mean for sure that its bad, connections and battery power to the alt wil need to be verified. Is the battery light on, if so, the alt isnt charging.

I was having the same exact problem with my 2005 neon as well. The guy at Discount auto suggested the starter itself was the problem(cost approx $200). The car isn't old enough to be having a starter issue so I figured it was something more simplilar. My dad took a look and founf out it was the starter relay. It is located in the black fuse/relay box on the driver's side right next to the battery. I had to get a new relay at the dealership(cost $20) and my car starts perfectly. Hope this helps

The pivot bolt is the long bolt that holds the alternator to the frame.
If you loosen it, the alternator can "swing" with the pivot bolt as its .... well, pivot, or swing center.
The long bolt must be removed completely in order to remove the alternator.
Be sure to doisconnect the negative cable from your battery.
Hope this hleps w/o a diagram.

First you need to take off the other belt. Turn the tentioner (2), usually a 3/8 ratchet, and remove the belt.
Second, you need to loosen the alt tension bolt, almost straight down from the (1). Push alternator toword motor and remove belt. Installation is the opposite.
Hope that helps
