Ok I have just recently bought a 95 neon that needed some reparirs. After the repairs I found that the speedometer wasnt working at all. Can you either email me a good description on where it is located and how to find it or email me a picture of it so that i could find and try to fix it. thank you.

it is located near where the engine is connected to the tranny but on the back side of the tranny near the bottom it looks exactly like the coil plug in

I had the same problem with my 95 neon. Youre going to have to pull the battery out and move the casing for it. The sensor is mounted right close to the engine. Just make sure you get the hooks from the sensor out instead of dropping it into the tranny like I did!

I have a 1996 neon
i bought the car, the A/C did not work, the whole dash was intermittent, and it squeaked really bad. But i have fixed all of the problems, at a very cheap price, and i have no complaints, especially with my excellent MPG.
The dash, if your dash doesn't work (some may sometimes, others more than others)
Simply take out the dash, the top pops out and in, then take out all the screws around the cluster (dash) and pull it out, behind the green cluster boards are joints. They should all be silverish, mine were grey. I simply sautured the joints. Took about 5 minutes, and 15 minutes total. Placed it all back in, and it works perfect, everything on it, 2 months later it still is awesome.
A/C = sounded as if the compressor was cycling on and off, on and off. I simply got all the free-on sucked out (garage did it) and filled it with free on. The car had sat for awhile before i bought it, so the a/c works great.
And for the squeaky noise, i simply opened up my hood, and loosened the bolts holding the serpentine belt and then pulled it up alittle to tighten the belt and tightened the bolts
and no more sqeauk
so the car runs great now
i also added brand new euro headlights, altezza tail lights, cold air intake, fog lights, all by myself. I am 17 by the way and no prior mechanical experience. Just read other peoples experiences on the web and the owners manual, some self motivation and you can fix all the problems yourself and price efficient!
I just currently, got vinyl spray paint and did my whole inside of my car blk/red and now am going to get a dynomax cat-back system soon and some LED side mirrors (currently manual)
So neons have the jumps but as long as you just take a breathe, you can figure all the stuff out.

I have the same problem with my neon and so does a buddy of mine. The instrument cluster is inoperable, gas gauge, speedo, temo and lights. Someone mentiond saturating the joints. Saturate with what??? if you could explain further. Thanks

He means "soldering" the joints. As the connectors age they tarnish and and you end up with an intermittant connection to the instrument cluster. This is a common problem in the neon. Resoldering the connectors in the back of the panel will allow the electrical current to flow to the guages again. Be careful not to use too much solder or you will not be able to get the connectors together again.

I just bought a cluster for my 95. all the gauges work except for the speedometer, same as the old. The joints are all in good shape as well as the wiring. My mechanic told me it was the cluster head, so i replaced it and still no working speedometer. Any advice?

My 95 dodge neon brake pedal sinks somewhat on putting the brakes on occasionally 30 % of the time. Braks and roters are fine fluid new and bled. Could it be the booster of some sort of check valve?

I would definetly check out the soldering. I have a 95' neon with the same problem and it is a known issue. Do a search of neons.org , they have picutres and step by step instructions that show what you need to resolder.

I have a 95 neon and mine either wants to die at a stop if I dont hold gas pedal down or it wants to go with the brake pedal down? Or it just dies?
