I have taken me Neon in three times this month for the same problem. The first time they could not find as to why the fuse for the fule pump blew because the computer did not find anything wrong withthe car. The dealer did tell me that it is hard to locate electrical problems. I understand that, but it happen again two times in one day. I again took my car into the dealer and this time they said that the only thing on this fuse is the fuel pump and suggested that it was going bad. So, we replaced it and then it happen again. At this point I am very concerned because I job coach and drive my car all day to and from different clients job sites as well as Transport them to and from work. This concerns me greatly du to the fact that with some of them I must drive on a highway and with the cars fuel pump fuse blowing at any time for what ever reason this frightens me wiht the way people drive on the highway the last thing I or they need is a car that just stops in it's tracks. I have had my car in the shop for three days and they still can not figure out why the fuse keeps blowing. It is at the point where they are driving my car around to see as to why or as to what is wrong. Please if you have had any other complaints about this problem write to me or E-mail me so that I can let them know. In regards to where I purchased my car. It was at a dealer ship in san diego California four years ago and I now live in Wisconsin. It may be possable to locate the dealer with my VIN number. Thank you debora brey.
