the tach i put in my neon has 4 wires, power lights ground and rpm signal. for ground either find a ground wire and tap into it or find bare metal on the car to soldier the wire to. for power find a good power source to tap into, radio, light switch, defrost button, list goes on. for lights, tap into your light switch so when u turn your lights on the tach light will come on too. and for rpm signal do NOT connect it to the coil you will be angry because you will only get 1/2 a signal, unbolt your PCM under the hood and look for a grey and blue striped wire should be bottom left if i remember correctly, it is a hard one to find but gives the correct signal. for more information I found a forum devoted to your topic, enjoy.
Need a 1996-1999 Wiring diagram for PCM for dodge neon
A Dodge Neon does not have a distributor.A Dodge Neon does not have a distributor.
theirs a green wire by distributer that is for the tach
I Have a 96 dodge neon and it holds 10 gallons. 2000-2005, 12.5 gallons.
Check the wire connections on the coil. If ok, the tach may be bad.

yes, it is a interference engine
The Dodge Neon does not have a MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor. It does, however, have a MAP (Mass Air Pressure) sensor located on the intake manifold between the two left runners.
You need to have a diagnostic meter to read the codes, then book to tell you what they mean.
my 1996 noen did the same thing, mine was the solder on the back of insterment panel. this is the second neon that we fixed this way
I had a 95 with the same motor in it that was right around 20-25PSI at idle.
there is a basic relay under the hood for your fuel pump. They do not have a fuel shut off
Under the cowl where the wipers are. Remove that and two screws to pull resistor out.
The instructions will come with the new tach.
You can't. 95-96 were the only Neon's that came with fuel filters, after 97 Dodge stopped equiping external fuel filters
this is a good question. my 98 escort lx didnt have a stock tach so i bought aftermarket and tried to splice the wire off disturbtor off one of those reading one and it gave me half reading such as for 3,000, it show 1,500 instead, even on the setting of 4 cylinder. if you can get your hand on a stock tach from used escort, you can install that and keep same odometer, it is fairly simple thing to do, and even all escort comes with pre wire for the stock tach, i replace my dash stuff and added stock tach, and it works great, very accurate reading. tried to use same connection on tach from the dash pre wire, didnt give reading, guess it needs a special signal to mak eit work, if need more help with gettin stock tach to make it work, email me at evanescenceobsessor (at) tmail (dot) com eventually im gonna do more project on my car and find the wire. one friend told me it is a pink wire in middle console, that gives right signal on tach but i will need to check on that.
Replace or tighten the A/C belt. If equipped with a serpentine belt, replace it.
