1997 dodge neon will start then die.
Hi, my 1997 dodge neon recently has had
some issues. I was a grocery store And I
was starting to leave. It started up fine but
when it turned on my lights the car locked
up and died. We tried jump starting it but
the car would sound like it was going to
start but it wouldnt. We towed it to a near
by auto shop. They said it was the battery
voltage was low. So we changed the
battery. Then a few hours later they said it
wouldn't start and that the power
distribution block wasn't doing so good.
We went back to the car a few days later
and it started, we started to drive it and i
tried turning on the defroster but then the
car died. The car will start for a few
minutes and then die a few minutes later.
One of my friends said it might be a wire
and not the whole block. Does anyone
know if it's true or something completely
I would check all battery connections and the negative connections to the frame and motor. All must be clean and tight. Sounds to me like you may have a loose negative connection on either the frame or motor. Also test the alternator. It should be putting out 14.5 volts.
