I pulled the relay, a temporary solution. Seems common. Mine is a 2003 wrangler, but can't find the solution on the web. Is it a relay or the switch or computer? Chrysler help us out! (oh yeah, they are bankrupt)! can you say the dropped the quality of a good product.....
I have the same problem. I figured out a temporary fix in lieu of pulling the relay. With mine (03) the fog lamps will only work when the low beams are on. So I turned the high beams on, shut the lights off, and voila! No fog lights. I think the advice of changing the whole arm is the only solution, but this will keep me from getting a dead battery in the mean time.
Coincidentally, starting today, 6/22, my '04 Wrangler with 85K miles started having the same symptom. It's not the relay though. My lights will turn off if i press in on the fog
light switch in the off position on the turn signal lever but when I
release the pressure they come back on. I also pulled the fog light relay to shut off the lights. Unfortunately, I believe the only solution is to replace the turn signal lever.

I have a simular problem. Only mine does not some on. I tried to replace the turn signal switch assembly with a used one. The replacement work ok on the fog lights but the rest was bad. As near as I can figure it, the switch assemble is not well made and had many ways to go bad. Either replace the whole assemble or wire in a bipass switch. I am going to go with a bipass switch. I don't trust the new jeep products.
Or you could just pull out the relay under the hood, it's marked fog lights, pull the relay out. If your hi beam indicator is flashing with your fog lights on them selves. Could be the multi function switch. That controls turn signals, headlights, fog, I have seen many of those go bad.
Sounds good to me except, the switch light shout be on the relay primary circiut and light off until you turn it on. When you turn the switch on, it lights up and energizes the relay, the relay closes and completes the secondary circiut for ythe fog lights. VIOLA' I have a silverado. done deal thanks
There seems to be a problem on the power side. You should have at least one terminal at the relay that is hot. The switch activates the relay and transfers the power from the "live" terminal to the hot lead to the lights. Good news is you can completely disconnect fog lights and make your own harness (including a relay) and use a push button or toggle switch on the dash, just like the aftermarket add on lights use! (and it's likely cheaper and more reliable than the original setup)
