This definetly sounds like the starter motor has gone.

    First of all before you spend a lot of money with computer mechanic or personal machanics
    try a little trouble shooting yourself. My sons neon would not start it started out as beinging a intermittent problem 1. It had a very old battery we replaced it seemed like this sovled the problem it started and ran for a couple of weeks, then same problem. This seemed like it may be a wiring or inition problem, jumped from the + batt. to the starter relay coil w/ key turned on it started every time was thinking it was the inition. Tried one more thing switched A/C relay w/starting relay in engine compartment fuse box. wa la no money for the greedy mechanic.

Could be that car is not recognizing that it is in park or neutral. That is only if it is automatic.Standards have a switch on clutch pedal. You can jump the starter to see if it is ok without removing from car. If the starter is faulty you would usually notice problems leading up to failure.

Hope this helps

Checck the key starter switch ,if it is switching the voltage to the solenoid of the starter located near the starter motor,.
If voltage is absent, then it is the key switch failure, but if present check if solenoid is switching, if not it is the solenoid switch. But if the solenoid is contacting and the supply goes to the starter without a response then it is failure of the starter motor, it can be the windings, failrue of the commutator,or the brush. But you will need to remove to confirm. maybe a cleaning an d adjsutment of the brush might work.
Hope this advice helps.

Why does my 2005 neon make no sound when the key is turned?


all the neon I have seen have way to small battery cables and ground wires. We had this issue with our neon. Replace both ground to engine block and battery to starter cables , and terminal ends with heavy duty ones . and add a heavy duty ground cable from battery to body. this will permit the charging / starting systems to work with greater efficiency.

97 dodge neon turn key have lights but no crank or no noises


Is the car still in gear? If it is, then it will not start till you put the car in park. I've done this before and the same thing happened, had radio, lights etc...till I put car in gear and it started. Check the gear selector, if it's not in park, then put it in park and try to start. Hope that helps.

If you start a Dodge Neon three times with an unchipped key the car will lock down, you have to contact a Dodge dealer to have them "unlock" the car. I found this out when I first bought mine, luckily I didn't start it three times with the blank key so I couldn't tell you how much it will cost a dealer to repair the problem, as I am assuming they just reset the computer. Or you could attach a diagnostic computer to the car, it will usually allow you to reset any issues which may work as well.

if the starter is clicking, try tapping on it with a hard piece of wood, like that of a hammer handle, while someone tries to start the car. if it starts, replace the starter. also make sure electrcal connectins on the starter are tight and clean. and check the starter relay if applicable

Are there any main fuses on a 2001 plymouth neon


Have you checked the starter solenoid. Your battery + cable connects to this then + cable runs from it to your starter. You also have an ignition switch wire connected to this. Just follow your cable from the battery and it will lead you right to the part. Some times these will break inside or the contacts go bad inside and therefore you will not get power to start the engine, but you will have power to turn on lights or whatever other accessories.The part is about $15

97 dodge neon will not start, once in a while


Do you have sufficient power to the vehicle? Do the lights work and radio? If not your battery is low, if yes than your starter solenoid may have failed. Since there is absolutely nothing, I take it you hear no cranking or igniting. correct?

"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.
