If fog lights are controlled through the same switch as the wipers it is most likely the switch assembly shorting out

SOURCE: Front fog lights!

The fog light switch is located to the right of the rear wiper switch. Also the fog lights will not operate when the high beams are on. If the rear fog is the defrost switch,you are in the right area.If the switch is not there,they could have been dealer installed and are wired to come on when the low beams are on. Hope this helps,Good luck

SOURCE: Wiring front fog lights to a 2002 freelander ES.

Do not fit these lights yourself,you must take the vehicle to the dealer to have it done .Firstly as vehicle wasnt factory fitted you need the original homoglonation certificate from the manufacturer for the model with the foglights fitted,then you need a installation project drawn up by certifide auto engineer with the relevent technical qualifications (i have them) then they can only be fitted by a garage with an added value tax certificate,then vehicle must be presented to the local vehicle inspection depot to be mechanically inspected all over weither its due or not,the relevant paperwork plus the fee presented ,then a new vehicle registratrion document issued showing the changes.Failure to to this will cause the vehicle to fail its inspection when next presented as paperwork isnt correct ,the lights are ilrevelent as to weither they work or not,but if fitted from new they must work.Also if stopped by the guardis civil and paperwork checked,and they notice then you risk having the vehice impounded their and then on the spot ,big fine and the cost of the removal truck.

SOURCE: 1999 galant, no high beams

Get the turn signal switch, and fuses in the fuse box inspected.There are two fuse box one under dash and other under hood.-------- Also to check if its a power issue, just check the voltage at switch, the turn signal switch and head light switch.Should give you 12 volts at the terminals with ignition on.If there is no voltage then problem is faulty switch or fuse.First inspect the fuse, you will have to remove and check the fuses manually and inspect if any of then is got short and causing this.----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Try and see what happens when you put it in REVERSE? There are many American Vehicles that the light only works when you are in Reverse to see what is behind you

Where is the fog light switch located on prius 08


I'm assuming that you have the factory fog lights on a NHW20 (2004-2009) Prius. In the US 2004 Owner's Manual, it is listed in Section 2-4, "Operation of Instruments and Controls,""Lights, Wipers and Defogger,""Front Fog Lights,"

Fog lights staying on


1st most newer car cars have a timer delay that helps light the area you are in for a couple of seconds. You may have had the knob turned all the way up on the turn signal switch. The same thing will happened if this switch is turned all the way up, the interrior light will stay on. Turn the lights on with the switch and see if the fog lights come on, do this without the car running.Trun the lights off,see if the fog lights stay on then go out after a while.if so you have a delay on the fog lights or relay. You may need to replace the relay only. Part $ 15 trace fog light wiring to relay usually under hood away from water sources.......runjoe

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.

Dodge dakota selector switch and relay switch


A selector switch is what you use to turn on or off a circuit such as the lights or wipers. A relay switch is used by a circuit that has a large current draw and a relay uses a small source of current to control a large usage of current. Most fog lights use a relay to control the fog lights. You turn the fog light switch on (that is a selector switch) and the current from that circuit then activates a relay switch to let the larger current draw that the fog lights use go to the fog lights and you have light. A relay also controls if the fog lights are on when the bright lights are on. (on most cars if you turn the bright headlights on the fog lights will go out until you go back to the regular lights)

Hope that helps.
Good Luck
