did u check that they not burn?if not you should Check the wires going into the steering column if you don't have separate turn signal lights and brake lights because if they use the same bulb then the turn signal may be bad. If I remember correctly that particular car doesn't work this way, but I include it just in case.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge neon tail lights inop

looking at your schematics and , you say tail lights don't work , you didn't mention if front parking lights and license plate lights are working , they all come from the same source , a black /yellow wire , a good clue if front work and rear don't , please advise .if fronts work then you have a open circuit somewhere between junction S118 (near breakout for left headlamp) and rear sockets.

Look under the Hood and Locate the Fuse Relay Box. There are Relays in this Box for these Lights. They might be Labeled ILLUMINATION, Not Sure But, They are in there. The Diagram of what is What should be Inside the Box Cover, If not, It is inside the Owners Manual. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Just found the answer on another site. Sure enough went out removed the 3 philips head screws in the steering column opened it up and walla a wire connection had pulled itself free. When my son uses my truck he always uses the tilt steering, when I get in I have to readjust it. because of this the wire connection pulled itself out. I simply pushed it back in an blinker and brake light are now working. My husband is now trying to figure a way to secure the wire connection so it doesn't pull itself out again. Hope this helps others, either by saving the cost of a dealership or machanic or from getting rear ended.

I have no brake lights, the blinkers run really fast and if the headlights are on the blinkers will not run at all while braking. Any ideas?


Have the multi-function switch and its circuits tested. The multi function switch is the blinker arm and the components its attached to in the steering wheel column. The multifunction switch has to do with blinkers, cruise control, wipers, wiper spray, high beams and also tied in with headlight dimmers/daytime running lights(if applicable) and hazards usually.

A good place to start.

Are these interior lights our the headlights? If it is the interior lights, you should pull the dimmer switch and check for a bad connection especially the ground connection on the back side. If that is okay, you may need to buy a new switch. If it is the headlights, check for a bad relay.
