Question about 2004 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

2004 Neon...this is wild, you turn on anything except for the radio and everything including what you turned on shuts off and or goes whacky! The gauges fail, the windshield wipers won't work, nothing! Luckily the lights still come on but when they do everything shuts down again, seems like nothing works, all the fuses are good and alot have been replaced. Any idea what might be causing all of these problems???

I have a 2004 xuv and the speedometer and ther gauges go whacky until I pull the fuse and reset it. I was told it was a short in the dashboard and would cost over $400 pluse labor. Anybody know a fix

$400? wow. When things get "whacky" with the guages, replace your ignition switch. NOT the switch your key goes into, it's located on the bottom of the steering column. Need to remove the plastic skirt that coveres the steering wheel column.

No power to radio pontiac grand am 2004

Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing ? Following wiring diagrams , checking B+ voltage at different points along the circuit . Did you use a interface module with the aftermarket radio ? The GM radio is hooked to the class 2 serial data network . Your best bet , take it to a qualified installer .

My 2004 Dodge Neon shut off unexpectly while driving down the road And yes I do have spark at the plugs

I assume that is just goes dead and when you try to start it everything turns on and turns over but won't start like it is not getting gas. If this is the case then the first thing I would check is the fuel relay located back by the gas tank. A parts store will help you out with locating this. Very easy to fix by yourself when you know where it is. These relays are notorious for corroding.

Tried starting my neon, it cranked then shut off, won't turn on now at all, lights and radio work. not even a turn over

probably a dead battery and possibly caused by a failed alternator. First try jump start and leave cables on. If car runs with cables on and then dies when you remove the cables, your alternator is not working. Let me know if that isn't it, and I'll provide additional troubleshooting steps.

The radio shuts off and all the warning lights are on

Bad ignition switch or an adjustment. Your talking,electrical switch here, not the key cylinder.

Security light comes on and radio shuts off.

It is probably either a short in the wiring. You would have to take it apart to make sure there is not. It could be part of your cars security, again you would have to take it apart to check the wiring, or it could be a faulty ecu. Something you would have to take out and get tested at a dealer. If you are worried about it and not a DIYer i would take it to the dealer.
