It is a 2005 dodge neon sxt and it is intermittently

Customer Question
It is a 2005...

It is a 2005 dodge neon sxt and it is intermittently starting then dying after a few seconds. if I turn the key off, lock the car, wait for a few seconds and then restart it it would go on running fine, now I am to the point where I have to do that routine 3-4 times before it will go to orking

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Dodge. The Dodge Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes I was a Mercedes tech for a while but am out of the business now, It seems likeit has to do with the security system(stock) on the neon, but Im not completely sure.

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Ive cleaned the throttle body, and checked for vacuum leaks, but I wasnt sure where to start on the security system side, other than the reset routine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Leaks can get messy. The Dodge Mechanic will know what to do. Is there anything else the Dodge Mechanic should be aware of about your Dodge?

It has 115000 miles on it and my girlfriend had a minor(radiator support pushed back slightly and hood buckled) accident with it but I believe that the first instance of the issue was before that.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
