Question about 1998 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

2 out of 3 brake lights not working

The 3rd brake light works but not the other two (in the tail lights). I Checked the bulbs. The ones I pulled out, the glass was darkened as if they were blown but the wires in the bulb were not broken. The metal holding the wire was darkened/burned. I put in new bulbs but still have no brake lights. The fuse for the brake lights controls other features that are working just fine. Please help!

Have a 1997 Buick Skylark Has tail lights but no Brake,turn or hazard lights don't hear the flashers.


Hi,
If you check the brake switch first, pull connecter off and see if you have 12 volts on one side of the plug. if you have power use a small cotter pin and jump the connector the brake light should come on with the 3rd brake light also. If that doesn't work more than likely its your turn signal switch that is the culprit.

My brake lights and rear blinkers are not working. I have replaced the bulbs in both brake lights. What next?


most blinkers uses relays, and when they flashes fast one light is out, but you replaced your burnt bulb might be a bad relay.

I recently replaced the front rotors, brake pads and master cylinder in my 2003 Durango. I've since discovered that the brake lights are not working, including the 3rd brake light in the tailgate. I...


Hello, Well there is not much more it could be unless you have a shorted wire or a burned fuse. I would normally think that the turn signal canceler was bad but the 3rd brake light will still work if that is bad so I would check all fuses and for bare or shorted wires.

Brake lights don't work, one in back window works but ones on tail lights don't checked bulbs and fuses and they are okay


I would check the wiring to the 2 side lights, and make sure they are grounded or none has been cut or corroded. You have good power going to the rear if the 3rd brake lite is working fine so I would trace the wire from the 3rd brake light to where it splits and goes to the 2 rear brake lights...

Tail lamps, turn signals work, running lights work-no brake light


check the socket for 12v if there is 12 volts then your terminals inside the socket are not making contact with the bulb terminal replace the socket

Brake lights do not work (3rd brakelight does) changed bulbs checked fuse


Problem could be the Brake Light Control Module. That's about the only other thing other than a bad wire somewhere if the bulbs and fuses are good. 91 Accord has 2. One on each side in the smaller of the 2 rear tail light lenses. In order to change the module you have to remove the smaller of the rear tail lights. Drivers side is 5 pin. Passenger side is 6 pin.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
