Is your battery dead? You might need a new battery.

If the lights are on as normal, maybe there is a problem with the shifter, if automatic. There is some kind of a switch that only lets the car start in Park and maybe Neutral too.

Will the engine turn over?, Is it automatic or standard?, Check battery and selnoid. Remove and clean battery cable connections at battery and all oher connections going to and including the connections to the starter. When testing for current flow past the battery be sure to have key in start position.

turn the headlights on. Now try and start the motor - do the headlight go dim?

If they don't your starter circuit has a problem.

If they do then look to the battery.

There are ways to continue but if you asking these questions your motor might be better of in a shop.

Check to see if stop lights are working. Shift interlock and stop lights are on (perhaps blown fuse) the same circuit. If stop lights are not working, try turning the key to the 1st position (unlock) and try to shift to neutral to start car and then you can move shift lever.

If the other lights work, look for a bad fuse (I believe the tail lights and dash lights work off the same fuse). As far as the vehicle not wanting to start, it's hard to trouble-shoot without knowing the symptoms (is the starter spinning or not?, etc).

What is wrong with your 01 Neon when you start the car it does not turn on and all the power and gages turn off but the engin still clicks?

First of all is the lights working in the car? (over head lights or any kind of lights) If your not getting anything at all (no lights) then you should check the battery. If the lights are working then I would check your starter. Most of the time if you take the battery somewhere to get checked they will do it for free. So I would start there. Did you try to get a jump to see if that would start it? Hope this helped some.

When using Remote start lights don't work on your 2003 f250?

If the lights are not working after using the remote start on a 2003 F-250, then something is wrong with the way it was wired when the remote start was installed. The remote start has wires to hook up to the lights so that a person knows the vehicle started. Perhaps this step was skipped in installation.

My '93 Sport does the same thing periodically. This may be a cool safety feature Jeep uses to indicate your brake lights are not working. If this is the case it is as simple as replacing fuse or bulbs. if your lights flicker on and off i wouldheck for a short in your electricle systm or if they went out and stayed out i would start by checking the fuses in your fuse box.hope this helps.
