problem #3

Sep 172005

Neon 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 705,585 miles
Turning signal headlights 80% failure, when temperature in vehicle over 100 degrees. When lights are engaged, all rear marking lamps, side, and instrument panel failed, and fog lights came on when in off position. I spoke to a tech off the record, this is a common problem. This resulted in a near collision since instrument panel was not visible to driver. When temp in car went down later that evening, switch worked. Today in the am it worked, but failed this afternoon.
