Question 96 Dodge Neon lights,signal fuel gauge problem

Hi All,
My 96 Neon left turn signal (always) interior light (only comes on by switch not when door is opened, and both tail lights and fuel gauge (intermittantly) do not come on. Checked all fuses, bulbs etc. No obvious wiring problems. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I would also say check all of your grounds, door grounds tend to be one of the first to go out either from breaking or rust. Try pulling the door pin out and cleaning around it. Either that or your wires have been cut somewhere

Door Pin?

Thanks for the responses, but where is this door pin? ( I knew my lack of knowledge would shine thru!)

Thanks again

if you look along the where the door is (with it open) there should be a little pin (usually has rubber over top of it). when the door closes it pushes this pin in which disconnects the ground from the dome light.
