Which fuse do I need to fix

Asked by May 28, 2013 at 12:40 PM about the 2004 Dodge Neon 4 Dr SXT Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2004 dodge neon had a light come on for a fuse out. The next day when I went to start it it wouldn't start. So im guessing its a fuse problem since that's the light that came on.  Which fuse do I need to replace.

The dome light is actually a combo fuse/light. If that light is burned out; the locks won't work, and the odometer will flash "FUSE" and the "DOOR" warning light will stay on, so try replacing the bulb. If it stays on with all the doors closed, thenone of the switches that is 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 or spray with WD-40 to clear out the dirty connection.

If it's flashing "fuse" and chiming at the same time, check the IOD fuse... It's in the underhood fuse box in a special plastic retainer (a bit of a pain to remove). These fuses control the flow of power for the "Ignition Off Drain" (radio & clock memory, pcm memory, etc.). When these vehicles arrived at the dealer brand new, these fuses were not installed in an effort to maintain battery charge during transport. If the clock on the radio isn't holding its memory after a "key-on, key-off" cycle, it's more than likely the IOD fuse.
