i am new to this forum but so far i am really enjoying myself, anyway onto the question. i have an 03 dodge neon sxt and i just put new bulbs in the factory fog lights. i cannot get them to come on, any idea what could be going on here?

my first thought was it could be a fuse so i checked the fuse and it was fine. then i seen a wiring diagram for the fog lights made by someone here on this site and seen that the number 15 fuse was somehow intermingled into the fog light system so i checked that as well and that fuse was fine too. any ideas or trouble shooting steps would be much appreciated.

Welcome to 2GN! hello2

I'm sure that you'll answer "yes" to this question but was your multifunction switch ("MFS") working before you installed the new bulbs?

Check grounds/power if the fuse is fine. I assume your headlights turn on right?

I just went through this about two months ago. mine didnt work either when i got my neon. i had to replace my MFS

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000EQ9ZTW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

everything else on the MFS worked fin except the fogs. it was a 15 minute swap, its 2 phillips screws and two torx screws. easy. does the fog icon light up on the dash when you pull out the knob? is the fuse good? are the bulbs good?

I believe there is a design problem with neon's MFS. It looks like it is a common problem.
I described here http://forums.neons.org/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=410518&sid=8619d2b4a0570208bbe8fe083e51a116 how I solved mine for $0.
