Dodge neon wont start
Wondering what is causing my 2000 dodge neon not to start. It gives a click
then acts as though it will start but no go! Not even a rev. I've changed
the camshaft position sensor (CPS) by suggestion of the clerk at o'riellys
auto parts. It also was having trouble shifting so I guess I see why he
suggested it. Now I just have the issue of not starting in the first place.
It's very intermittent and will start on occasion a few times in a row then
starts over with the same no crank no start scenario. Ive taken the starter
out and had it checked at autozone and it passed. A few times. I brushed
off the terminal bolt and made sure everything was tip too with the battery
terminals. Any ideas would be helpful!!
Oh! And hen I did the key dance the OBD codes I got were p1684 and p1685.
The first one is disconnected battery removing the starter and replacing
the CPS) the second came up as SKIM key incorrect. I still don't get i
No Crank, No Start Diagnosis - EricTheCarGuy

Whenever you have a no start condition when attempting to start your
vehicle it's important to make the distinction between "no crank, no start"
and "crank, no start" situations as they are treated differently. This
video covers what I do when confronted with a 'no crank, no start'
situation and in this case it's a worst case scenario so be sure to watch
till the end.

Ignition Key Transponders
Ignition Key Transponders
Describes the workings and applications of modern automotive key
transponders. These tiny chips transmit a digital signal that's then
processed by the Anti-Theft (antitheft) module. An OK signal or command is
then given to the ECM and related computers to allow injection and starter
activation. Learn how they work with this clear and concise video. Future
videos will detail what to do to reprogram ignition keys. Each manufacturer
is different and so is each procedure.

Key Stuck In Ignition HHR
For lack of a video dedicated to how to remove a stuck key in the ignition
of an HHR, I've decided to upload this video. The only other video as of
Feb 2012 shows the man shoving his finger into the access panel and back
out, and then spending the last of the nine minutes talking about how he
replaced the gear shifter. It's interesting, but I didn't want to sit
through nine minutes of video with the car stuck in the running position to
see if he even goes back to what he pressed. Apparently this plunger is
there to release the key in the event of a broken gear shifter or low
battery. In my case, the evidence points to a seized ignition lock
cylinder. In any case, trying to remove the key for me is impossible due to
the cylinder being seized up, but the button should work in any other case.
This video will hopefully be seen by people, whom, like me, learned of such
a button on their smartphones, but not have to spend a good hour in an
emergency situation trying to find this button due to lack of information
on the internet. Before any owner's manual Nazis flood my comments page
with "Read the owner's manual, STUPID!", my Chevy HHR never came with an
owner's manual. I saved a PDF version of the manual on my computer, but not
on my phone, and my computer was forty miles away. I tried to find a PDF
version of the owner's manual on the Chevy website, but their mobile site
wouldn't let me do that.
So I turned to internet forums and YouTube, but couldn't find any real
description of what to feel for, what to look for, nothing. So my car was
running for an hour while I tried to find this information before pulling
out the fuel pump relay fuse and disconnecting the negative battery
terminal before spending another good hour and a half still looking for
this magic button.
The other Google site that I found the night of my plight, was on the
ChevyHHR.Net page when I typed in the key words: Key stuck in ignition
I didn't find anything that described what the button looked like, so I
updated the page, since it is on the first page of results from Google.
Here is the link. The info is on page 2:
