Question about 1999 Dodge Neon

Open Question

Dodge neon stereo has no sound

Just bought a 99 dodge neon and the stereo does not work. it has proper power and ground and powers up but there is no sound. while driving home i hit a bump and heard it for a second and thought it was a loose ground but no such luck. i swapped it with a head unit from my truck and that one did not work either and the first one worked in the truck. all fuses are good and everything seems to be working as it should except that it doesn't. thank you in advance.

I'd get a 12vdc test light if you don't have one already & start from plug, and keep probing back from there. It may be as simple as a bad connection under truck where joined into harness.

SOURCE: 2004 dodge neon fuse problem.

The dome tight is actually a combo fuse/light. If that light is burned out; 1 the locks won't work, and 2 the odometer will flash "FUSE" and 3 the "DOOR" warning light will stay on - try replacing the bulb. If it stays on with all the doors closed, more then likely one of the switches that are built into each of the door latches is not making the correct contact to shut off the dome light/dash light. The correct fix is to replace the defective latch. The other option is to just cut the wires that feel the switch inside the door - then the car will think that door is always closed and the lights will not come on when you open that door.

Take a look at the down shift cable and make sure its not broken especially were it connects to the throttle linkage.And maybe try cleaning the electrical plug that plugs into the trans.Its about a 7 to 9 wire plug.They tend to collect water and short the wiring out.

SOURCE: 2004 dodge neon fuse problem.

yes thats possible, because sometimes like you've explainde some items are on the same fuse, but some items are on the same ground, thus causing something else to appear faulty. so its possible that all of these items are on the same ground and because a fuse or relay for the a/c is faulty, it may cause something else like the dome light and door locks not to work , very crazy with these newer cars.

I have a 1998 dodge ram I recently replaced the radio antenna and now my stereo does not work and neither do my headlights


The new antenna is not properly grounded, or the power antenna is not a powered one. The radio uses it to ground, or the radio and light circuit needs alternate ground.

How do you remove radio, from my 2001 dodge neon, that just went dead, for no reason. I replaced the fuse on the side of dash board. Still nothing.


Safety Precautions
  • Before removing the stereo or any other electrical component, it is vital that you first disconnect the grounding cable from the Neon's battery. The grounding cable connects the battery to the frame or chassis of the vehicle.

    Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to loosen the grounding cable's camp from the negative battery lead. Make sure to rest the clamp away from the negative lead post until the removal is complete.
  • Remove the Dash Trim Panel
  • The dash trim panel that surrounds the Neon stereo needs to be removed to access the stereo. The panel contains, but is not connected to, the climate control knobs on the dashboard.

    Grab the panel at the bottom corners and pry it from the dash. You will likely be able to remove the panel without the assistance of a trim pry tool, but if you are having difficulty removing the panel by hand, wrap a thin cloth around a trim panel removal tool or flat head screwdriver to remove the panel.

    Once the lower edge of the panel is relieved from the panel, you can work your hands (or flat pry tool) around the perimeter to separate the remaining edges.

    Since the panel is not connected to the climate control knobs, you will not need to disconnect the wiring to the knobs. The panel, once free, can be set aside until you replace the stereo.
  • Remove the Stereo
  • The Neon stereo deck is held into the stereo mounting bracket by 10 millimeter bolts on either side of the radio. Remove the bolts and store them in the ashtray for safe-keeping.

    Pull the stereo from the dock. The unit will easily slide from the mounting bracket with an even pull from the left and right of the stereo. Pull the stereo far enough to reach the wiring on the rear of the radio.

    The wiring to the stereo includes the antenna, the power supply and the speaker wires. There may also be patch cables connected if an amplifier is connected to your stereo system. Pull the cables from the stereo. The antenna and power supply are single cables. The speaker wires (and patch cables) will be grouped by wire binders. The plastic wire binders should be pulled as a unit. Do not pull the wires themselves.

    Once the wiring has been disconnected from the stereo, the unit will be completely free from the Neon.

    If you plan to operate the vehicle before installing a new stereo or re-installing the factory deck; reconnect the grounding cable to the negative battery lead. Otherwise, leave the cable away from the negative lead until all of your work is completed.

    IF I HAVE A 98 DODGE NEON AND A DB165 CLARION STEREO HOW DO I MATCH THE WIRING TOGETHER?


    Well, this depends on how easily you want the job. If you want it quick and easy, go to ANY best buy, sears, or car audio place and ask them for the appropriate wiring harness. A wiring harness is a pre-wired "Modual" that Links up with your car's current wiring modual. These are a WHOPPING 12-15 dollars. These piddly price can literally save you 1-3 hours of needless work. IF your just bent on saving that 12 bucks... and wanna solder ALL those wires together one by one and do all teh matching, etc, the first place to look would be the wires on the back of the Stereo unit. Most stereo output wires are labled in small print. Then find a manual for your car , year , make and model, and see what the stock wiring is... simply match em up and solder em together.

    2001 neon wont start when hot starter, relay and ign. switch have been replaced. Even my mechanic cant think of the problem. Has enough power, turn key all power comes on (lights, stereo, gauges) but turn...


    Have him check the resistance in the wiring when the vehicle is hot. It sounds like a wire is heating up too much and not letting current flow through it properly.

    Dodge neon shuts off after i accelearate


    a loose belt will not cause the engine to shut off. a loose belt will squeel. it almost sounds like the AC compressor might of locked up and it causing your neon to shut off. if your neon doesnt have ac or the ac is working properly then its something else.

    2001 Dodge Neon Power Locks don't work.


    Hi my name is Allen!

    You need to first check all your fuses!

    Question: Do the locks not work from the driver or the passenger switches, if they do not work from either switch then its a power or ground problem. If they do work from one of the switches then you need the switch that went bad.

    Let me know what you find, and we will take it from there!

    Waiting for your reply!

    Have you checked the fuses. Usually under the dash or in the glove box.
