You have a phantom drain somewhere... a component that is not turning off when the vehicle is shut down (faulty relay).
This will take some time to sniff out.
I recommend getting a multimeter and set ut up on the battery.
Set it up and every hour or so, take note of the voltage.
Then - after recharging (short trip around the block) start removing fuses... one at a time.
Take an initial reading... then remove one fuse from the INSIDE cabin fuse panel.
After an hour, check the voltage. If the voltage dropped the same amount as the original test - replace that fuse, and go to the next.
Once you isolate the fuse that is causing the drain... you can determine what that fuse feeds, and check into the culprit.

It is a long, tedious process - but its the only surefire way to determine the cause, rather than replacing parts willy-nilly, and throwing money blindly at the vehicle.

    Check the dome light for the (fuse) issue.

    If it was pulled by the previous owner - chances are the phantom drain is because of one or more faulty door switches (causing the light to stay on) so they pulled the light - but the vehicle still thinks the door(s) are open - and other items in the vehicle stay powered up. The FUSE light on the cluster is indicative the bulb is out or not present.

    Check it out!!

    Also, check the IOD fuse in the under the hood fuse box.

Got 2000 dodge neon will start when cold run good but when motor warms up won't start

Nikki is the engine light on, are there any codes,have you had a tune up or any other work done lately.when you say it won't start when warm(do you mean engine will not turn over, or does engine turn and refuses to fire.
If I had to guess failing fuel pump, they tend not to build fuel pressure when ran a while(warmed up) and when left to cool build somewhat better pressure.

You may need to replace the cable end that joins the ground cable to the top starter bolt.Useing booster cables from the ground post of the battery to the engine block should confirm this.

Try replacing the hot cable from the battery to the starter, replace the clamp, cable and all. Sometimes they corrode down inside.
