Check your neutral safety switch as well. Shift the car into neutral (WHILE HOLDING THE BREAK) and try to start it. If it doesn't work, then it could be the starter as Trevor said.

The 2005 Neon has a problem starting at times. The car can be jumped and it starts right up. The lights are all ok, everthing works but it clicks and won't start. The starter and selinoid have been changed, a new battery has been installed and it continues tu have this problem. Sometimes it starts ok and other times it don't????

small battery is a concern in neon, try while jumped to another car, after cleaning terminals and connections at terminals are checked. If same test light to starter, if has electricity when key on, its the starter, pull it and test it. When mine made NO NOISE when the key was turned, it was the starter.6537

I found the reason for a no crank is a small 20 amp fuse....however I have no power to drive...now what?

Turn your key to on position then back off twice, third time leave switch on and watch odometer, see if you get a code

My 2005 Dodge Neon won't start. The dash lights and headlights work. Had the battery and starter checked ann they said it was fine. They think it may be a computer problem. Any ideas or advice?
