Hi Hugh,
I have rewritten your code a bit.
You can write the function RHS with vector notation, then your problems
disappear.
========================
ClearAll[RHS];
RHS[x_, y_, f_] := Module[{},
-{{1, 2, 3, 5}, {3, 2, 1, 2}, {5, 7, 1, 1}, {3, 2, 4, 5}}.x + 3 y
]
sol = NDSolve[{x''[t] == RHS[x[t], x'[t], 1], x[0] == {-1, 0, 1, 0},
x'[0] == {0, 0, 0, 0}}, x, {t, 0, 2}
]
===========================
Neverthelesse, there is something fishy. The second case should actually
work. However:
MatchQ[#1, x_ /; NumericQ[ x[[1]] ]]
returns True. Maybe you want to report this to Wolfram.
