Auto electrics - Halp? - October 9, 2009, 08:51 AM

So I've got an '02 Dodge Neon. Pretty darn good shape.

However, this week I noticed my fog lights no longer turn on.

For the past couple weeks, the fog light indicator on the dash has come on when I turn on my headlights; I thouht it was odd, but I just had to tap the control and the indicator would go off.

So perhaps that was foreshadowing of the lights themselves crappin out. ?

Any ideas, experiences with a problem like this?

Check the fuse box, maybe the fuses went bad or need replacing.

Starts with the "D" ends with the "e".

Fuse box first. They are on their own fuse.

The problem is that you own a neon. Replace the neon with another vehicle (preferably not a dodge) and you'll be good to go.

I'd double check that list on the inside fuse box but remember there's another fuse box under the hood check it's list too bec you should have more then one fuse for the headlights.What I recommend is having new or fuses you know that are working handy then pop out the suspected fuse with headlight switch off and try the same amperage of fuse in it's place.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way the owners manual should tell you what fuses are for the headlights , plus you might wish to buy a service manual for that vehicle.
Keep in mind that fuses that are burnt black and are the correct stated required amperage have been fried or burnt out due to a short usually and the short could be in the wiring or bec of moister or in the headlight switch itself so you'd have to check the system out.

either your bulbs or fuse. if its the bulb i think it takes 9145 and make sure dont touch the glass (or use gloves) when you are replacing them.

BOOST, you rock. Glad to see someone else had to ask the question. I will check the fuses.

Stop with the car make hate, people.
I have a Dodge, a Chevy, and a Ford. They are all fine.

Wish I could afford a beemer or jag, but no.
My little neon has been nice and reliable for the last 7 years, with no maintenance requirements beyond normal wear and tear. So

lol I just couldn't help myself and I had to take a jab a Dodge. It is a pretty simple issue and your question was already answered. Had I been first I would have suggested checking your fuses and grounds to ensure things are good.

BTW - You could have one fog lamp blown/broken and it is shorting causing the weird issues. Check the condition of the bulb before replacing the fuse to prevent blowing another.

You have a Dodge, therefore you have electrical problems. Terms of ownership. It's not hate, I own a Ram.

I have a Ram and a Neon.
What does that mean???
And Sara, my Neon doesn't have foglights so I can't help. But I do have a sunroof and spoiler!
