Running a modern car without the battery can damage the engine computer.

check the large fuses and small, the charge system on the neon works different than the older cars, a volt spike could have happened, it cranks,,,ok unhook the battery leads , touch together with key on ,turn off key ,connect leads to battery and crank, hope for start

High voltage most likely fried the electronics, I had a customer that did the same thing it cost him well over 1500 bucks to get it running again.
