SOURCE: Block heater for 98 dodge neon

Well the block heater itself is usually way under the engine where you can't see it, so I'm thinking you want the plug & cord that makes it work so you can plug it in. My 95 neon had it coiled up laying near the top of the fender under the hood on drivers side, if i remember correctly. It had a black cap over the plug which made it hard to find sometimes, even though I thought I knew where it was. Sometimes it would fall down behind or beside the engine controller.(gray looking computer box) I was always looking for a shiny plug-in type end but it was covered with a hard to see black little cap over it. I used a flashlight, and went along the top of the fenders until I spotted what looked similar to a black extension cord, then followed it to the end, and that's how I found it most times. Try going along drivers side top of fender first, then passenger fender, and then along the front, and maybe even attached in behind grille at front of car sometimes.

SOURCE: sunroof will not close

If the motor is stuck, you can probably hold the switch to the forward position, and smack the roof. This may allow the motor to start working. I don't think there is any way to do it manually.

SOURCE: what size socket do I need to change the oil and brakes.

The oil drain plug is a 13 mm. The tools for the brakes, a 10 mm socket for the caliper pins, a flat head screwdriver, or a meduim size prybat to get the calipers out of the mounting bracket, and a 4" C-clamp to compress the pistons into the calipers so you can put the new pads on.

Sunroof in 2002 Chevy Impala won't close, is there


Sorry, no. Pull down on the headliner at the front of the window and you can see the motor. Cable is most likely broke or motor bad. Remove all the columns front, middle, and back. Remove the headliner. Then you can access the motor and regulator for the sunroof. The columns and headliner just pop off.

2001 dodge neon. My sunroof will not open at all. When I flip the switch all I hear is like a grind sound like a gear missing or something any ideas ?


I rented one of these a few years ago and the sunroof wouldn't open! The mechanics had to pull off panels in the headliner to get to the motor and drives. Also, the tracks that it mounts in need to be checked for alignment...good luck!

Cable retainers have snapped on the cable and are hanging up at that point. Only way to fix is to replace the cable and retainers and that requires removing the headliners and sunroof.

This can be really tricky to get at if you want it done properly and neatly. You'd have to remove all the trim on the inside of the car that covers the headliner and then slowly pull the headliner down which will be held on by Velcro fasteners and some glue. You have to be gentle as the headliner may rip if you're too rough. Once the headliner is removed, you can get to the motor and cables. You'll be able to disconnect the cable connecting the sunroof and manually close it, and then re-secure the cable temporarily.

Switch and motor out for sunroof on 98 monte and it's stuck tilte


I had this same problem. I am working from memory, so this might not be totally accurate.

The motor for the sun roof is located right above the switch. Take a flathead and pop the switch out, the whole trim comes out, not just the button!

The headliner is held in place by velcro around the sunroof, and held up by the trim pillars in the front and the top trim above the doors, loosen all this so you can pull the headliner down enough to get at the motor.
If I am not mistaken this motor has a straight-through shaft with a notch in one end, use a screwdriver and turn said shaft until closed.

I got lucky and found an exact match of my '98 monte in the junkyard and pulled the entire assembly out of the car to replace mine. Hope this helps.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
