Question about 2003 Dodge Neon
All fuse and relay's are good - battery cables are good - battery good - horn blows - head lights shine - signal lights work - radio works - wipers work - air conditioner and heater works.. when i turn ignition switch on i hear a sound as if a circuit is making up/powering up, it last about 2-5 seconds, but no sound from the starter/motor.

The circuit you hear powering up for two - five seconds should be the fuel pump priming the fuel system . What type transmission ? manual or automatic ? Do you know what a wiring diagram is an how to read it ? Free wiring diagram's here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model and engine size. Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting .Click the search button then the blue link . If you look at this diagram you will see the fuse at the top of the page that powers the ignition switch . You will see the ignition switch , the starter relay and the PCM - engine computer ! The PCM supply's a ground to energize the starter relay . But only if it see's that the transmission is in park or neutral ( automatic trans ) Or the clutch switch is closed ( manual trans ) .To see this you would need to go to transmission controls under transmission/transaxel . Plus the PCM will not energize the relay if there is a anti-theft system problem . You could do testing right at the relay base (where the relay plug's into ) With a test light ,voltmeter etc...

get a boost... sounds like the battery is run down.... if you want to test that theory... have someone try and start the car while you check hte voltage on the battery.... it may well even need replacement

Before I even got done reading your post I was thinking clock spring. They aren't the easiest things to change but are definitely changeable. You will, however, need a steering wheel puller, more than likely. Most clock springs aren't cheap either.
Hope this helps out,

Yes they do but I would rather think you have a bad battery cabe connection to the system, sometimes the battery cable corrudes and you can't see it try replacing the cable ends and the connector ends espically if they are by the battery.
