The 2003 neon alternator is actually controlled by the PCM, so swapping alternator is not possible, you have to add on an alternator and dedicate it to your stereo, I'm researching the same thing, I'll post my solution to this when I figure it out myself!

I have a 2003 dodge neon sxt. Will start and run fine then drive for awhile shut it off then it just cranks won't start till it has cooled down


The 1st thing that needs to be done here is to have the PCM (powertrain control module) scanned for both active and stored codes as well as a running test.

Remote locks do not work on a 2003 dodge neon


Either the sensor in the car is busted - in which case see your local Dodge dealer for help - or else you just need to replace the battery in your key/fob remote!

My 2003 dodge neon sxt with a manual transmission will not shift into Reverse


is it grinding when you try? try to turn car off hold in clutch put into reverse and then start car
if it pops right out you need to get it to a transmission shop.
i recently replaced a transmission in an SXT that had no reverse, all it would do it grind and pop back out

I have a 2003 dodge neon sxt 2.0 and i need to put a high output altenaor on it. is it possibale to have 2 altenators on the car? i need somthing around 200amps. for a large stereo


you would blow the computer and every sensor and light on the car. They sell an aftermarket altenator that is a higher amp. add another battery to the trunk and an offspring wire from the front battery to the rear to keep it charged

Well it could be your fuel pump. That is most likely the first thing I would think of. Or it might just be your starter. Oh, since it won't even crank it will most likely be your starter. If its not that check your fuel pump.

Cam Shaft Sensor Problems


Had the same problem before on my 04 Neon SXT...camshaft sensor is on left side of engine block, take out the battery and to the left of it (face car) is the camshaft position sensor. To change it you'll have to move a few hoses but its plan to see there on the left side of the engine...pretty easy remove and replace. Fixed my problem of car not going above 2k RPM when i replaced the sensor.
