Wow, that's a small list of problems to fix! If you are mechanically inclined, sounds like you need to start from ground zero. Disconnect the negative battery terminal for 3-5 minutes then reconnect the battery cable. This will clear out any old code readings. Then go to you local auto parts store and buy a basic code reader for your make and model ($30-$125). On the way to the auto store, the electronic computer control (ECC should recieve a fresh set of codes. Plug in the new code reader to the OBD-I or OBD-II port and see what kind of codes you get. This would be a good starting point. Please rate this response if you found this helpful, thanks.
I don't even know where to start, Here is a link for you and hope it's going to shine some light at the end of the tunnel. it's going to give you instruction on to how to retrieve DTC codes and possible causes to why your neon is doing what it's doing.\015\012

I have a 2001 Pontiac Firebird. When i start my car, my left turn signal light comes on but the right front turn signal light remains off. If i turn my lights on, the right turn signal light then comes on also. However, even when my lights are on and both turn signal lights are on, only the left turn signal will flash, the right turn signal will just stay on.


Perhaps a dicky connection somewhere. Perhaps corrosion, even moisture in the connection plugs. Inspect all connections to your indicator lights. Also check for worn or damaged wires. Also Have a look inside the lenses of the lights to see if the the ... Pontiac Firebird

Sounds like you dont have the bypass mod for your type of car. Do a search for GM bypass or passlock and locate the one for your car. They are plug and play and make the car fuction normal after the remote start is added.\015\012\015\012 ... Chevrolet Impala

My 1989 300SEL the check engine light flashes intermittantly starting at around 70 MPH. If I accelerate it stops until I settle in at another highway speed. The car also hesitates slightly at the same time, and then picks right back up. Also have to really pump the gas to get the car to start (Check Engine List flashes a lot during this time also) once I get the car started it's fine.

1986 Camry hatchback 4dr that wont start at all. i don't even get any dummy lights, stereo, or wipers... (anything related to ignition) also when i turn the key theres no start either... No click in the relay box beside the battery. ALL fuses & Battery good and still nothing. I'm positive that its apart of the ignition because i still get head lights, horn, and 4 way blinkers. and this all happened in between the time of 8:AM (had car running fine) and lunch (car was dead).

My volvo V70 1998 won't start. The indicator lights go on so the battery seems fine but the engine does nothing when I turn the key-- no clicking or attempts to start. I've have this happen before, but it would always start on the 2nd or 3rd attempt. Also, PNP replaced. Also, right before this episode, the car started 2 times when I got it into neutral using the gear shift override button. At the same time, the headlights didn't work-- but the high beams did! Help!!

2002 Saturn SL2 was working fine an hour previous to the 'lock out'. I went to run another errand and it wouldn't start. Battery good, all lights, etc coming on. Wouldn't turn over. Anti-theft feature is only suppose to disable the car for 15 minutes. It wouldn't start all day. Next morning I get in the car and try it, it starts right up. Is some component going out - a fuse? Some kind of computer chip? How can I avoid this in the future? Also...remote is brand new and was programmed on


Your owners manual will tell you that the anti-theft can be turned off, but doesn't tell you how (dealer only?). If it is turning over but wont start, (trying to hit and outside temp is below 32) check the coolant temp sensor. Saturns notorious for ... 2002 Saturn Sl

The turn signals on my 2003 Impala intermittently stop working. They will work fine one minute and then the next time you use the signal they don't work. Sometimes if you leave the signal (left or right makes no difference)on it will come back. Activating the hazard lights also will work but not every time. It's very random when they go out (wet weather, dry, same trip, cutting the car off)
