Replaced PCM, Brain. Battery, Injectors cleaned, Tranny fluid changed, oil changed, Radiator fluid flushed and changed, cam sensor changed, crank sensor changed, cadilatic convertor changed, coil pack changed, 2002 dodge neon se. Runs perfect till temp rises halfway This car is driving me insane. Used to be able to drive it much further before it would act up with these issues. Please tell me you have the answer. Broke single mom is trying to get this f-ing car to run so I can let my daughter have it to drive my three year old grandaughter around. Cannot afford the dealer.

Yes it stays on all the time. When you turn car till radio comes on without completely starting car it blinks on and off ten times with no pauses in between.

Car sputters. Makes little backfire noises acts like it has no power. Stalls at light unless you put it in neutral and rev engine. RPM gauge starts moving up and down then it stalls out. Will start back up but then it only goes about 15 mph then if you give it gas it will go with some hesitation. Once it cools off again runs normal for 6 or 7 miles then goes crazy again.

Code does not mean sensor is faulty but circuit. You will need a DVOM disconnect from CMP key on measure voltage on Tan/black wire
What is it?
