SOURCE: 2004 Dodge Neon Fuse problem?

Sounds like corroded battery terminals/cables. The battery should have held a charge after jump starting. When a car won't even jump start, it's a sign of a dead battery or corrosion on the posts or cables. Throroughly clean the posts and cables and try to jump start again. The error code should clear itself since the battery would be disconnected. If you are not able to jump start the car, post back and we'll diagnose further. My guess is cleaning the posts and cables will get you running again. Best of luck!

SOURCE: 2003 Dodge neon, car won't start, battery dead.

Its asking you to check the fuses, one of them must be blown and is also causing the battery to drain its charge. So first check the fuses in the dashboard, check the wiring for any shorting of the circuit and then get the battery recharged once.................sodeep

SOURCE: I have a 1997 dodge neon and the speedometer does not work

Need to access the PCM with a scan tool and see if the vehicle speed sensor is still working. If it is, the problem is most likely in the instrument cluster and a junkyard part would be a good solution. If you have no VSS operation, that's your problem.

Replaced input and output speed sensors for erratic speedometer. Now the speedometer remains at 0. Anyone have a suggestion on what else could be wrong?

input and out put speed sensors tell the TCM and the ECM the difference between engine rpms and transmission input roms so that the correct gear ratio can be selected
A speedo sensor reads the out put shaft (drive line ) shaft and refers to road speed for speed and odometer readings and to calculate the fuel consumption rate
it is possible that you have replaced the wrong sensor
Talk with an accredited transmission specialist shop and have the problem diagnosed

What causes a battery drain on a 1997 dodge neon

How old is the battery? Is there any aftermarket alarms or stereos installed? And are the cables clean and tight? If the battery is new and the cables are tight you have a parasitic drain. you need a DMM, disconnect negative terminal and place one lead on cable, one on post. Set DMM to amps and compare reading to man. specs usually between 20 to 50 milliamps. If out of spec disconnect one fuse at a time looking for a fall in the reading and that will tell you what circuit has the issue

My rpm gage is not working, my speedometer is not working, my gas gage is not working, and my oil gage is not working, and my temperature gage is not working pretty much when i start up my car and drive it...

I'd wager that the fuse that controls the gauges is shot, or one of the internal connectors got unplugged (Fuse sounds more likely). Radio, Lights, and Turn Lamps are usually on seperate circuits.

Speedometer/RPM Gauges Stuck

Gages are always a problem. Check with you dealer for most are sold as rebuilts with exchange of your old one. Most American made cars have cluters made by Nippondenso and are all imported to the USA. No one here repairs them for the circuitry design and mileage factors are called in before the order is placed
