First off what is the make and model of the car and how many miles are on it. How long have you owned it? When you try to start it does the starter turn/ the motor crank? Three things a car needs spark fuel and air. Once you find out which one it is not getting you can go from there.
Thank you,

    Well if the battery is fully charged and the starter isn't turning then you need to get a multimeter and test make sure the starter is getting 12v, and then that the starter solenoid is getting 12v when the ignition is being turned. If it's getting voltage but the starter isn't turning then it most likely needs to get replaced.

Truck stalled wouldn't start.

I can understand you being frustrated.
There really is no way to tell if the fuel pump was the problem at this point.
If the security system fails, you should see "security" light up on the cluster.
The key lock has a sensor that reads the chip in the key. If the sensor fails or the chip fails the computer won't let the vehicle start.
Most of the time when the security system is at fault, the vehicle won't start, but it won't cause the engine to stall.
You might want to have someone check the fuel pressure and spark at the plugs if you don't see the security light on the cluster.
Could be the fuel pump relay and a list of other things.
I would probably check the computer for trouble codes too.

Dodge 2500 diesel wont start

This one is easy. When you remove the filter for service and are ready to install the new filter, fill the filter with transmission fluid. Yes, you read that right, transmission fluid. I am an ASE certified master technician, this will stop the air bubbles that are introduced into the fuel system, and causing the fuel system to lose it's prime.

Since the air is already introduced into your system, on the side of the engine (driver's mostly on the same area of the filter) there is a rubber boot covering a PRIMING button. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START YOUR TRUCK AT THIS TIME!!! DIESEL FUEL IS UNDER EXTREME PRESSURE WHICH CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURIES!!! PLEASE, pay attention to this warning!! crack the seal on the filter open, remove the filter, fill the filter with transmission fluid, re-install the filter, and then prepare yourself to push that rubber button for some time, perhaps as long as five to ten minutes. When the button gets extremely hard to push, the system should be primed. Remove all tools and your hands from area, and attempt to start the engine. If it doesn't start, go back to the rubber button, and reprime the fuel system. Sometimes the process may take as many as ten attempts before it starts.

Hope it helps!
Warmest regards,

The "service engine soon" light came on my 1997 dodge neon shortly after I put in some oil. I bought the car second hand so I am not sure what oil was used previously. I am wondering if anyone knows why it...

The Service Engine Soon Light means that your ECM (Computer) in your car has stored a Trouble Code for a Sensor or Component that needs attention or replacement. You will need a OBD II scanner to retrieve the code. Once you have the Trouble Code, a Mechanic or you can now diagnose the problem, fix the problem or replace the part. You can go to AutoZone and they can retrive the code for you at no charge.
