problem #1

Jun 102002

Neon 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The fog light multifunction switch in my 2002 Dodge Neon was malfunctioning and the fog lights were turning on without being turned on. This continued for about a month until smoke came out of the steering wheel column for ~30 seconds, until the car was pulled over and the ignition turned off. The fog lights no longer work and there have been no more incidences of smoke. Nothing has been done yet to rectify this, but the dealership will be contacted shortly. We found no obvious recalls for this for this vehicle.
