Hi all,

My fog lights are no longer working. I have checked and replaced the fuse, as well as checked all other fuses in the car and nothing is blown.

I have not replaced the lights but it seems odd that both of them would die at the same time.

Any ideas. As many of you may recall I had headlight trouble a few months back and it turned out to be a fuse.

BTW - the fog light switch (green light on dash) works.

Oh and yes my high beams are off.

THanks
Kevin

If your light on the switch illuminates, then there should be power to the foglight relay coil. Other than that are the fuse, lights, or the relay. See attached .pdf

One of my fog light bulbs burned out a couple weeks ago. I'd check the bulbs; there's always a possibility that they did die around the same time.

Start by checking for power. Take a trouble light or multimeter and check for currrent at the bulb and start working back from there until you get power.

The other thing you could check to see is if the plug for the fog light switch is fully plugged in or if one of the pins "wire" has been pulled out.

Pull the little pocket off drivers side & reach your hand up & push the switches out.
