    My 2003 DodgeNeon SXT has 170,000 miles. It started when I would crank it, it would just drag, had the starter checked it was ok. Was told it might be the starter sensor, can u tell me where that sensor is located?

    2003 Dodge Neon SXT - My battery keeps dying when the car is sitting over a period of 24hours. It starts with a jump. I noticed today that it was saying "fuse" where the mileage was. Any suggestions anyone?

    You say it wants to start, but won't turn over ? Is the engine cranking over ? Remember, you need 3 things to get an engine running. Fuel, compression, & spark, and at the right times. Who changed the engine? Has it run since it's been changed?

SOURCE: Cam Shaft Sensor Problems

Had the same problem before on my 04 Neon SXT...camshaft sensor is on left side of engine block, take out the battery and to the left of it (face car) is the camshaft position sensor. To change it you'll have to move a few hoses but its plan to see there on the left side of the engine...pretty easy remove and replace. Fixed my problem of car not going above 2k RPM when i replaced the sensor.

SOURCE: how do i take the dash apart for a 2004 dodge neon

your attempting to try a job that you really shouldn't try,
the steering column will have to be dropped,the entire dash comes out of car,the AC needs vacumed down and disconnected,and that just gets you to the heater box assembly,your still another hour away from seeing a heater core .when we did these jobs at the dealers with all the tools available to us,it was a 12 hour job,then you have to recharge the AC yet

SOURCE: where is the camshaft sensor on a 2004 dodge neon

disconnect the negative battery cable. the cmp sensor is located on the left end of the cylinder head. move thebrake booster hose and electrical wires out of the way to access the cmp sensor. disconnect the sensor plug by pushing the locking tab back toward the firewall. remove the 4 bolts from sensor and lift out sensor. remove the trox bolt which holds the target magnet to camshaft. when installing target magnet be sure to line up holes to dowels on end of camshaft. torque torx bolt to 30 in-lbs. be sure to install new o-ring on sensor and torque bolts to 80 in-lbs.

SOURCE: where is the starter on my 2004 dodge neon sxt

The starter is located right smack dabb in the front of the engine, half way down behind the radiator, it's plainly visible.

The easiest way to get it out of the car is to remove the battery and the battery holder, along with the radiator fan on that side. With all that removed it is just a matter of undoing the two mounting bolts. The lower of the two you will have to get from underneath. Make sure you have a couple different extensions and a universal joint and you should be fine. I tried following the instruction in the book and found out a better way. With the fan on the battery side out the starter came out easily. Plan for two to three hours of work on it.

SOURCE: where is the cam sensor on a 2005 dodge neon sxt

Camshaft Position Sensor-On top of engine Operation The Engine Management System (EMS) uses the camshaft position sensor to manage sequential fuel injection and as part of misfire diagnosis. The EMS constantly monitors the number of pulses on the signal circuit. The EMS compares the number of camshaft sensor reference pulses and the number of crankshaft position sensor reference pulses received. If the EMS receives an incorrect number of pulses, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) should be stored in the EMS. Some engine management systems will then default to multi-port or "gang-fire" injector operation. The camshaft position sensor signal is required to sequence the injector operation to the proper cylinder timing. If the camshaft position sensor or circuit is faulty, most engines will start. However, the EMS misfire diagnostic will likely be affected.
The following symptoms can be caused by an intermittent wiring connections or faulty signal to the EMS.

  • Intermittent rough running
  • Unstable idle
  • Bucking
  • Hesitation
  • Stumble

2004 Dodge Neon 2.0 - Got a new battery, turns over but still wont start. Is getting fuel though.


Has it been running since you got the new battery? If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check for fuel injector pulse. If more than one issue, check cam and crank sensor. Check theft/security where applicable.
Don't replace anything unless testing points you in that direction.

My 2005 dodge neon sxt wont start, no spark, changed cam shaft sensor, coil is good, cant find the crankshaft sensor, also wondered if it could be the timing belt, what do you think?


the crank sensor is on the back side of the engine just above the oil pan there will be two sensors there one is the crank sensor and the other is oil presser sensor. All so check the wires from the crank sensor to the cam sensor. If you think it is the timing belt pull the cover and check it. hope this helps.

My cars engine turns over, but it won't start.


You'll need to determine if it's getting fuel, & spark, if you know how to check it. Also try cycling key on, off, on, off, on, and leave on and count flashes from check engine light. Will always be 2 digit number. For example flash, short pause, flash would be code 11, flash,flash,flash, pause, flash flash, would be 32. After every 2 number set, it will pause a little longer then start again if more codes are present. Try this and write them down & get back to us. These are trouble codes to try & tell you whats wrong.
