Check all your fuses on the left of your dash, just check them. You can pop your dash out and check for burnt wires. Im thinking you just blew a fuse. If you can give me more info then what you posted, I can help you out a little bit more. Ive had 3 neons now and ive had plenty of problems with them all.

It's the governor. It keeps the car from going too fast. My 2004 Dodge neon does the same thing and it has done that since the day I got it.

My 2005 Dodge Neon lost steering today. Both wheels point in the same direction, but you can't turn them with the steering wheel.

Have helper turn the wheel as you look under hood. You will likely see a steering column joint that has failed.

Steering wheel shakes hard when shifted into reverse on cold day

Turn your wheel to the left if you begin to navigate to the right and visa versa. The movement of the wheel is always going to be opposite of the direction you want to travel. For example, you could turn the wheel farther left to go to the right.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steering went out what to do

Is the belt that turns the power steering pump loose or broken? You mention replacing the tensioner, so I'm guessing the belt is too loose. If it isn't spinning the power steering pump, the steering would be very difficult. The tensioner should have a mark on it which helps to determine if it is worn and needs replacement. This is a good time to replace the belt also, if needed. Once the tensioner is replaced, you will still have difficulty with the steering wheel and ignition until you can start the car. You might try to raise the front end, so turning the steering wheel will be somewhat easier. A slight turn to the right or left should allow you to get the key to turn, and once started, it should be ok.

Bar in trunk

Do you mean pitman arm. Yes neons steer with the front wheels. All production Neons have Rack and Pinion steering. If it is a pitman arm that is an older steering system found on older cars and large trucks and bigger SUV's.

sound like your powersteering pump or steering rack and pinion
could be bad.i would say it is your rack and pinion because if your pump was bad your steering would be real hard to turn instead of being jerky.jerking is usally the sign of a bad rack
