Hi Shawn, I'm glad to help! Unfortunately the "FOG LAMPS" or controlled by the TIPM under the hood. Something are controlled internally which is the case with your fog lamps. What you need to do is check power and ground at the fog lamp connector, if neither power or ground exsist then you'll need to take it in to the repair shop. If both power and ground is there then you need bulbs. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Shawn.
Remove the plastic screen surrounding the fog light (held on by 3 Torx screws). Elevate the front of the car and remove the plastic tray under the front bumper(held on by 5-6 eight mm headed sheet metal screws). Unplug the wire to the lamp and remove the four screws holding the fog lamp on.(4 Torx screws). You can't get a screwdriver into this tight space, so you'll need a torx bit and a 1/4" drive ratchet to turn it. It is a tight work area and you'll have to take your time and just "worry" those screws out with the Torx bit.. Remove the lamp unit and replace it with the new one. reinstall four screws. Plug wire into the new lamp. Then reinstall the plastic splash tray under the bumper and the wire grill around the light. Done!
You may have to jack up the front end of the car to be able to slide under the vehicle a bit or if your arms are long enough you should be able to reach underneath the vehicle and feel for the connector.
So now you see the connector simply give a turn counterclockwise and it will come loose.
Now pull the bulb assembly out.
The fog lamp will pull strait out of the connector.
Replace with a new 9006 bulb.
Now put the bulb assembly back in the fog light assembly.
Your 2008 Elantra fog lamps are probably still under warranty. Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership) or call the nearest one. Give them your vehicle VIN and ask them if the fog lamps are still under warranty. If they are, they will replace them for FREE!
I just replaced the fog light bulb on my 2008 Azera. I went under the car and removed two screws from the protective shield. I pulled down the shield and reached up and turned the fog light socket and pulled it out of the housing, remembering which side the wires were on and removed the old bulb (Don't touch the new bulb with your hand) and replaced it with the new bulb. The job took less then 15 minutes
