Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
98 Jeep Cherokee
Fog lights no longer work. Bulbs are fine. Green light on fog light switch no longer lights when switch is turned on. Have checks connectors 2 switch they seem fine. Can not tell if the relay/fuse is bad? How should i go about troubleshooting this.
It's definitely the switch...I bought two of 'em so far...known bug. I don't use the fog lights as much anymore , but the "Airtex" oem equivalent switch from Rockauto seems to be holding up well. If you dissamble your broke switch you'll probably see evidence that it is beginning to melt and theres alot, maybe too much, grease, which may or may not have been the cause of the bad, heating contacts inside switch.
If I remember right, even though the foglights have a relay there is still full amperage going through the switch or something....don't qoute me on that last statement.

I had the same problem with my fog lights did not working in my 1998 jeep cherokee classic. I found that behind the fog light switch their is a white connector that connects to the wire harness. This connector was bad. I bypassed by using a male and female connection and they now work fine. If this does not fix it, there is also a relay switch behind the fog light switch that could also be bad. In my case it was only a bad white connector

I had the same problem. Check along the wires for breaks or cuts! Mine was installed too close to the engine and the wires were melted too the engine!

Replace the relay it's a fairly cheap part and likely the source of the problem.
