2002 Neon with no brake lights or turn signals

This all started when to lo-beam headlights would not turn on. So I replaced the multifunction switch on to find that the connector was melted. I managed to get the new switch in with the old connector and
the headlights worked but the turnsiganls did not. I am assuming that this is a problem with the connector. At this time the brake lights were still working.
Now in addition to the turn signals the brake lights are not working. The tail lights and back up lights do work fine. So I started with bulbs and no luck. Then I checked the fuse, all good there. So then I thought switch although the cruise still works fine. Replaced the stoplamp switch and still no luck and the stop lamp switch still turns off the cruise when the brakes are applied.
So I'm ordering the connector from the dealership for the turn signals, but I don't think this is going to fix the brake lights. Does anyone have any other Ideas before I start tearing wires out.

The brakes go through the signal light switch portion of the multi function switch on just about all cars today. If the signals don't work, and the brakes don't work, chances are significantly better than 50/50 the problems are related and located at the MF switch.

if the headlight switch was melted somebody put the wrong kind of headlights in the car and thats what caused the headlight switch to melt a quick fix is go to a junk yard and ask them to cut a plug for the headlight switch and splice it in and that should fix the problem thats what happened to me when my wife got a wild hair to put brighter headlights in her neon big mistake
