First thing to check is the bulbs. The rear fog lights are the 2 bright red lights (a little brighter than the brake lights) next to the licence plate on the back of the car. They are turned on by pulling the light switch out 1 click when the headlights are on.

2005 audi A6 intermittent tail light failure

I can't solve this problem, but have had the entire left tail light unit on a 2005 A6 replaced under warranty 5 times in 3 years. Once it was out of warranty, the dealer kept replacing bulbs and charging me $30 each, but it never solved the problem, even for a day (clearly looking to duck their lifetime guarantee on work they did).

Fog lights on 2002 jaguar x type

More specifically, with the light switch in the "on" position (not the "auto" position), pull the light switch out. First click is the front fogs, the second click is both the front and rear fogs.

I have a UK registed, Feb 2000 AUDI A6 2.7T QUATTRO AUTO ESTATE, Is it right that these are fitted with just one rear fog light that operates and the other is just for show.

Yes it's true. What I did on my US-spec A4 is to pull back the trunk lining on the passenger (right) side, where there is no functional foglight (my rear fog from the factory is on the left side). What I found was that the "bulb tree" has a fully powered socket for a bulb that would fit into a rear foglight on that side, but no bulb was installed. The part of the taillamp that would have a hole for such a fog bulb had a **** instead. I used a drill to widen the **** into a hole large enough for a bulb, and installed a bulb in the bulb tree, and voila - dual rear fogs:)
