Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

1 Answer

2001 Ford explorer sport fog lamps are not working. I just bought 2 brand new ones and they worked for two days then both went out at the same time. Also the button on the interior does not illuminate either wen pressed. checked the fuse underneath the hood and it isn't blown. I'm thinking it's electrical? Any suggestions?

The light on your interior button should only come on when the lights are on, so I wouldn't worry about that until the lights are fixed. There should be a relay for your fog lights. I would check your underhood fuse relay box. switch that relay with another, such as fuel pump. I lights come on and now vehicle won't start, you know that it is the relay you have now put in your fuel pump circuit from your fog lamp circuit.

Fog lamp will not come on 2001 ford explorer


Fog lights normally have their own relay, which is usually in a black box under the hood mounted on or near the wheel well. Take the top off and there is a diagram glued in that shows which relay does what. Find a relay that's the same in the box and plug it into the fog light location. If the lights work replace the relay. Also check your fuse box for your lights. If the lights still do not function you may have to replace the switch.

How to replace a front fog lamp


  • If your fog lamp is connected to or behind a grille, pop it out. This can be done by first removing the clips or screws connecting it to the car and gently pulling it out. (If your fog lights are not connected to a grille, proceed to step 2.)Find the bolts that hold the fog lamp in place; you may have to get underneath the automobile to do so.Using your ratchet wrench, remove the bolts.4Grab the connector on the back of the fog lamp, turn it counter-clockwise and pull it out. This should remove the actual light bulb from the lamp fixture.Remove the fog lamp from the car and place the new one in.6Place the light bulb into the new fog light and turn clockwise to lock into place.Bolt the fog lamp back into place, if you had to remove the grille, put it back now and screw/clip it back into place.Turn on the fog lights and make sure everything is working properly
