Question about 2005 Dodge Magnum
My 05 Dodge Magnum (2.7 6cyl 2wd) was stored for about 6 months. During that period we only did intermittent starts and small drives to not sit the tires in one spot.
Now we are back to driving and the blinkers and wipers are not functioning. The emergency flashers, headlights and brights work. I couldn’t figure out (by the manual) which one was the correct fuse so I checked them all.
Everything else seems to be in good working order, but I can not figure out what else to check.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

While not likely, it is possible that the light bulbs in both sides are have bad filaments. Turn on ignition key (but don't start engine). Then turn on parking lamps (first detent or "click" on headlamp switch). Walk around car and look for illumination on front parking lamps and rear tail lights. Turn on the right turn signal. Are those (right hand) lamps now changing brilliance? Try the left turn signal in the same manner. Are those (left hand) front and rear lights changing briiliance? Take note of any positions that did NOT change briliance when the turn signals were activated. If NONE changed briliance, you either have a bunch of bad bulbs (unlikely) or a bad flasher (more likely) or a bad turn signal switch (most likely) or perhaps wiring problems (possible if the car has been in a collision or has been "worked on" by some "non-expert" mechanic). Check the action of the emergency flasher control switch located on the steering column (facing up). Pushing it in (down) should result in the button going to two different heights alternately (low, high, low, high). You could just have bad flashers or corroded flasher contacts! Good luck!

You remove a few phillips head screws on the cover beneath the dash under the knee panel. The hood release is attached to the panel. You can reach it from below or remove the knee panel around the fuse box door. Look for the screws around the trim piece. It's a fairly simple process. It's a small, silver, and looks like a little can. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer, thanks.

Sounds like you need to replace your brake light switch. It is located on your brake pedal and you should be able to pick it up for around $20-$30 at your local parts store.
