Question about 1997 Dodge Neon
Check the connector, clean it out and then put some dielectric grease in it. It may be rusted, and causing issues with the connection. Thats what it sounds like.

I am assuming that the right (passenger side) turn signal light (blinker) is working fine. This will usually mean that the electronic flasher is not malfunctioning due to the fact that one side still works.
Since the right side brake light is working, I can also assume that the brake light switch is okay.
It is possible that more than one bulb may have been out. The quickest way to test this is to turn on the hazard lights and slowly walk around the vehicle. Make a note of which lights are flashing on one side of the car and compare that to the other side. One bad turn signal bulb (front or rear) is enough to prevent that whole side from blinking. It is also possible that a single bulb is responsible for both turn signal and stoplight. Make certain that the bulb that was replaced was not the back-up bulb. Replace all other bulbs found to be burned out.
And finally, check to see if there is power to the bulb socket. If it is a double-contact socket, there should be power to one of the contacts for "parking lights", while the other contact should be for "brake lights". Make sure the correct bulb was installed.
