Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2001 Dodge Neon Owner Comments

problem #4

Mar 172009

Neon ES 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


I've had the car 5 yrs. No problems. Last week while I was driving, the radio went off and overnight, the battery died. It happened again after I had the battery charged, and with the radio fuse out. I now keep the radio fuse out, but the battery is still being drained. At night I disconnect the battery cable and in the morning I reconnect it; I can't afford to have the electronic system checked. A real pain in the ass! Any help?

The car actually started just a week before and was driven. I went to replace the bottom radiator hose and installed a new fan, but when I went to start it the car just went 'click'. The battery is fine, but I thought that maybe it was a fuse or a loose wire or even the alternator. The latter doesn't explain why it drove a week ago. I don't know.

car won't start. When turn the key only a clicking sound heard but no ignition attempt. i believe its electric because when the key is turned the stereo turns on but as soon as i turn the lights on the stereo turns off and the lights inside the car dim down. this is one of the two horrible problems i have with the car. Any help will be very much appreciated.
