Question about 2000 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Replacing the highbeam switch on a 2000 Neon - is it a big job?

Went to dim my lights and noticed a funny smell (electrical - burning). The lights dimmed but they won't switch back to high beam. How big a job is it to replace this switch? Do I have to pull the stearing column apart?

Blower motor resistor burning out

Sounds like you are drawing too many amps through the circuit. Window defoggers draw a lot of power which could be the culprit and it tied into the circuit. Unless you are good with schematics and vehicle wiring, it's difficult to narrow it down to what it could be.

Possible some wiring is burning or melting from under the dashboard have it checked again, the smell does it seem like burnt rubber or plastic?
Have it checked since you mentioned that the lights has gone. see the fuses as well just to be sure.
Better get an expert check it to be sure that nothing will be missed on the issue. If it is a wiring issue then the best thing is have the electrical rewired for best results.
