    What about a new dimmer switch, have you tried one of those???? Also check the Grounds under the hood, and to motor ground. Sometime this will cause problems.

Rear fog lights not working on 2002 a6


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.

AIMING

  1. Park the car on a level surface, at least 25 ft. (7.6m) from a wall that is perpendicular to the ground surface. Make sure there is no excess weight in the trunk, unless you normally travel with that amount of weight in the car. Bounce the car a few times to settle the suspension.
  2. Measure and record the distance from the ground to the center of each fog light lens.
  3. Turn the fog lights on and adjust so the hot-spots (lit area of most concentrated intensity) are 4 in. (10cm) below the height of the lenses. The ADJUSTING screw is located at the top right corner of the fog light.

My headlights on bright and fog light is not working. I have changed the bulbs and they still don't work. The fuses seem to look okay. What else should I look for? Do they have another fuse or circut fuse...


Most fog lights turn off when you put your brights on. Check their operation in normal mode first, if they turn off when you turn your brights on... this is normal.

To disable this you need the wiring diagram for your car, you will have to cut 1 wire to be able to have all your lights on at the same time.

Drivers side reverse light on while i drive.


Your car has rear fog lights. The rear light that you see come on with your headlights is your rear fog light. The light in your dash is the rear fog light indicator. To turn off your rear fog lghts push your headlight switch in half way. To turn off your front fog lights push in all of the way.
