If your Neon is running, go to one of the chain auto parts stores and ask for a free scan of your computer's error register; it may have one or more error codes stored.
If you plan on any DIY work, I suggest you invest $25 in a Haynes manual for the car, You can get these at most all parts stores or on line:

2002 dodge neon wont shift outta first and speedometer wont work ,already replaced input and output sensors


Maybe the speedometer connection at the transmission might be interfering with the shift lever at the transmission. Not sure if this would apply to the 2002 Neon but on some older model cars I believe it could happen. Just a thought.

Flashing S button 1991 Honda accord


the flashing S light on your car is your tcu "transmission control unit" sending a trouble code to your dash this could mean alot of differant things if im not mistaken it will be an electrical problem not mechanical. is your speedometer just randomly jumping? the reason i ask is i drive a 91 as well and my S light is blinking and my speedometer jumps and sometimes doesnt work at all the the code for the S or tcu is 4 which is the vss "vehicle speed censor" eventually your check engine light will probably come on and if the code is 17 then its your vss as well but you can check the code by getting either a paper clip or small wire and using it as a jumper wire there is a little blue wiring harness on the passenger side of your car under the glove box use the paper clip or wire and plug them in "dont worry you wont get shocked ive done this plenty of times and in the rapair manual it tells you to do this" when you do this make sure the paper clip or wire is secure and put you key in the ignition and turn it to where your dash lights up but dont start the car the S light will start to blink count the blinks "1 long blink is 10, 1 small blink is 1" example if the light stays on for a couple of seconds and turns off and then blinks 4 times that would be code 14, if your check engine light blinks count that as well if you need help with checking any of it there is a video on you tube i believe the title is how do you check the check engine light on a 91 honda accord. or something of that nature. if you get the codes tell me what they are I may be able to find them and get more specific about what is goin on I hope this helps

So what code do you get? what came first, the jerking or the inoperative speedometer? It may be time for a repair shop to properly diagnose the problem.

Speedometer and tac gauge does not work. I've checked all of the connections, replaced both censors and all of the fuses. What did I miss? Due to it not working, the transmission isn't reading it and it...


It is possible for the Speedometer and Tac gauge not to work but will not affect the way the transmission works. If the problem is in the interment cluster the transmission can still receive the input from the speed sensor. Does the check engine light come on? If the transmission isn't receiving the signal the check engine light will come on and set code. If the check engine light isn't coming on or doesn't set code for speed sensor signal you problem is more likely to be in the interment cluster. The RPM would be the same.

My probles is the spedomometer no funtion


If your odometer is working but you have no speedo check your connection at the speed sensor first. Is your Check engine light on?
If so check for speed sensor codes. if your odometer & speedo are both out your may be having a problem in your sppedo head which will require repair or replacement.

Speed sensor and overdrive


OVERDRIVE ENGAGEMENT IS TIED TO THE SPEED SENSOR SIGNAL, THE SYSTEM WILL NOT GO INTO OD UNTIL THE CAR REACHES A CERTAIN SPEED, IN MOST CASES AROUND 35-40 MPH, THE SPEED SENSOR SIGNAL TELLS THE ECU WHEN THE CORRECT SPEED HAS BEEN REACHED.
