Question about 1997 Plymouth Neon

1 Answer

Dome/ Trunk Lights don't work

I have 97 Plymouth Neon that i bought over last summer and the Dome light and the Trunk light have never worked (among a few other unrelated things) and i went to Kragen today bought new bulbs and replaced them yet they still don't work. So i took my DMM to the circuit and there is no power reaching the dome light, after i looked through the fuses (and was unable to determine which fuse it was) i decided to come online and look for a diagram for the electrical wiring for it. any idea where to find one or maybe even wut the issue is?

The dome light problem is likely that the crappy switches that get pushed in when the door closes don't make contact when opened. You can find them at the lower right corner of the door sill. (Driver's side door. Same relative position on the other doors.) Take a phillips screwdriver and remove them, AFTER removing the correct fuse. Spray the inside of the switches with contact cleaner. Grab the black nub of the switch and twist it while holding the switch body still.

The trunk has a weird setup. the switch contact is where the trunk latch is. When the trunk is closed, the simple spring switch is held open so the light turns off. When trunk is open, the switch closes and the bulb lights. Hope this helps.

Why aren't my turn signals, brake lights, parking lights, dome lights and trunk light not working when the fuses are good?


A mechanic would check for power at the headlight switch and turn signal switch then go from there.
Might be a fuseable link in the engine compartment.

My car( neon 97) didnt have fog lights originaly and i dont know how to instal it


its not a bad job on a neon ,the fog light kit you will buy will come with a switch and the relay and wiring for installing them,they also came with a real good set of directions for doing this,if you need to get someone to help you with doing this,sometimes running the wires is tricky,but other than that the fog lights can be mounted in the same place as the originals was,and they look good,i sold my 97 neon and i had fog lights on it,they were after market but looked and worked excellent,with a little work and time anyone can install a set on any car,good luck.
