One thing to check is the positive and negative battery post's. check for any corrsion and even do a voltage test to the starter. check the grounds. The battery might be bad have you tryed to jump it? The battery light comes on when their is a dop in voltage in the sys.

Why does it seem as though my battery is completely dead but it isn't?


A bad cell could have too much internal resistance when the battery has to draw many amps to turn starter over. Put headlights on then hit the starter, if the headlights go off, the battery is bad or a connection at the battery cable or ground cable is dirty.
If you have a voltmeter, attach to battery and notice voltage of ~12v or greater, then hit starter, if battery is bad, the voltage will go from ~12v to under 9v and result is starter won't turn over the engine.

check the drive belt for condition and tension as you drove on the battery only because the alternator was not working . The battery you replace was a good battery just needed charging. Putting the car in gear lowers the rpm's below that necessary to spin the alternator fast enough to keep the light off . When the alternator is needed the drive belt of some other failure in the alternator comes into play . have it checked out at an accredited auto electrician

Try a bigger battery or a battery charger.swap it to give enough power to start the engine. If that doesnt work than try checking the starter solenoid at your local auto store

I have a 2005 dodge neon that just clicks when i turn the key. the lights and everything else work fine. it happend the other night on my way home from work so i poped the hood took out a few fuses put...


The first thing to check is the condition of the battery. If you have one or more bad cells, it will not provide enough power to turn the starter over. Also, check connections on battery to make sure they are clean and secure. Lastly, check to make sure the connection from the battery to the starter is clean and secure.

If the battery and cables are both okay, you most likely have a failing starter solenoid. A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.
The starter motor is a series-wound direct current electric motor with a solenoid switch (similar to a relay) mounted on it. When low-current power from the starting battery is applied to the starter solenoid, usually through a key-operated switch, it pushes out the drive pinion on the starter driveshaft and meshes the pinion with the ring gear on the flywheel of the engine. When the solenoid has low power being supplied to it or is failing itself, it will make a clicking sound.

2004 Dodge Neon - Engine died, coasted to stop, and won't restart. Not even a click. Brand new battery, clean terminals, fuses good, starter relay good. Radio and lights work. Power windows work fine.


Does the starter turn the engine over,or not?Or is the engine not running when you turn the ENGINE OVER AND OVER? If there is no starter turning on the car,then check for a start,or main fuse to see if one is blown.Also look for a fusible link burned into.It will look like a wire,but if it is burned into,you can pull the link apart like taffy.It will either be on the starter with the battery cable,or on a positive cable junction near the battery.If I can help,let me know.

Parked car after getting home from work and it want start the next morning. I had an oil change and got my tires rotated and balanced a week earlier and it was doing fine. I checked the oil and it was fine...


Does the starter turn the engine over? If not, the battery may be discharged from leaving the lights on or a stuck-on door light switch? If so, put a battery charger on it over night and check for lights anywhere staying on (trunk, under-hood, or jockey box too). Hope this helps.

My 95 dodge neon batter wont jkeep a charge


Check the accessory belt tension. The belt should move 1/4 to 1/2 inch when you push on it. The alternator belt is closer to the firewall on a 96 neon. Also for a temporary fix until you figure out the problem get a solar charger that plugs into your cigarette lighter. Other possible causes; bad battery cables or connections. Check all connections are clean and tight (check both ends at the battery and at the starter and ground wire. Caution always remove negative battery first and replace last.

2002 Dodge Neon Starter


might want to try charging the battery for a while on a battery charger.
usually when a vehicle does this, its because the alternator is trying to charge the battery more then normal causing the motor to rev higher.
