Asked by Oct 26, 2013 at 08:00 PM about the 2003 Dodge Neon 4 Dr SXT Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

they settle down to normal operation...or continue to go berserk....have a mechanic wirebrush the main 1/0 battery connection...I suspect that the ground to the chassis is "iffy" and the gauge panel cannot tolerate varying voltages from below 12.5 volts goin' up and down in a random fashion because there is limited potential electrically...bad ground....clean the ground...get a NEW battery if older than five...will screw up the alternator charging a battery that won't take a charge~
