Question about 2005 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT. All was working fine until I tried to start my car at a gas station this morning. I heard a pop and then nothing. The car would not turn over, no lights, nothing came on. I was able to get it to start a couple of minutes later but my stereo was reset to all of the manufacturer settings. Please help!

It sounds like you have a poor connection with your battery. I suggest removing the whole battery from the vehicle and throughly clean it with a bucket of baking soda and water focus mainly on the batteries terminals. Don't worry you will not be electrocuted. If the the terminals began to foam you know that there is a lot of acid and corrosion by theses terminals. Dry the battery with a rag. Check the connectors. Are the wires all exposed and broken? If so you may have to solder or tin the wires which helps fuse them together. Then place some electrical grade shrink plastic on to the exposed connection and heat until the plastic is snug on the connection. This will protect it from further corrosion and the elements. Now finally place the freshly cleaned battery into the car. Remember positive connector first negative last. Attach them snugly with the proper wrench. This should prevent your battery from cutting out again. If you have any other question don't hesitate to email me.

2005 sxt dodge neon number 6 cylinder spraying gas checked plugs rail and cylinder but nothing still


Sorry, my US database doesn't list a 6 cylinder for this vehicle. If it's a 4 cylinder, now were talking. If I understand you correctly, maybe the fuel injector is faulty? I don't know what kind of testing you have done?

Starting my neon and keeping it running.


I believe you should just set the idle higher at the throttle body or MAF so it gets enough air and fuel to keep running. Those butterflies have to be cracked open a little to start with so it's getting enough air to run without you having to keep your foot on the throttle pedal.

I own a 2005 Dodge neon SXT. Once in awhile a solid red circle pops up on my dashboard. What does this light mean?


The red circle means there is an intermittent problem with your vehicle security.If your car starts and runs fine it would be hard to diagnose until it wont start at all.

I have a Dodge Neon 2006 which was working fine


you may be right, try a spare key, that will elimanate the key chip, you will need a scan tool to diagnose this problem, also with key in crank position is there power at starter, the scan tool can tell yuo if computer is reading key chip signal and if signal if right and also you can see if starter is receiving start signal, good luck.

I have a 2005 Dodge neon sxt and in the morning when I start it the engine makes a really loud knocking for about 15 seconds then it gets softer. The noise is there all day. I have about 66k miles on it...


This is probably a bent pushrod or warped head or something of that sort. SERIOUS problems. Take it to a mechanic. Knocking of any sort is a bad, BAD sign. Good luck.
