    Make sure you have a power and ground at the plug end. If you are missing power or ground then that will be your next step in finding the problem

If you can read an electrical schematic of your car, get one and map the direction/location of the wire harness that sends electricity to your dead fog lamp. Check the wires for current until you find current. then check the wiring between the found current spot and the fog lamp for bends/breaks or any other problems that would cause it to not carry the electricity to the lamp....if you can't read a schematic....just uncover and follow the wires back to your fuse box...carefully....not causing any problems along the way.....removing the wire harness covering and inspecting the feel or by sight....looking and feeling for a broken connection or burnt wire....use an amp meter to probe the electrical current if you know how to use one......somewhere within the wire run there will be your problem....the hard part is finding it....or if you are electrically inclined....rewire the whole run back to the fuse box....and even back to the switch on your could be the switch in your dash is faulty and doesn't make a good connection to the one bad side when switched use the amp meter to find where the electricity stops in the wiring....this will tell you approximately where the problem is....use the sharp pointed probe ends to check the wire conductivity inside the plastic wire wrapping, and make sure to have a good ground spot for the other probe end or other end with a ground clamp to attach to. I like the newer amp meters that open by depressing a thumb trigger and close around the wire to be checked, reading the current through the plastic coating just by being installed around the wire in ground probe and no forcing a sharp end into a small wire stuff to deal with.....

turn the switch for the fog lamps on and start probing the entire system until you find the short or dis connection.... be careful when working on the cars electrical system....any work on wires in or around the area of your air bags should be done with a great deal of caution and preferably with the air bag system disabled. Don't be abusive to any other wires in the process...

Good luck and I hope I was of some help....

SOURCE: replace the fog light bulb.

you don't. you disconnect the wire on the back of the light assembly and then the bulb twists counter clockwise and pops out, to re-install reverse the procedure. the wire is accessible from below the car under a black plastic flap the pulls down out of the way directly underneath the fog light.

Check the headlight fuses in the engine fuse box compartment. Not sure if the lights have relays, but they will be clearly mark in the inside of the top cover for location.

Need to replace backup lights switch on Yukon XL 2002

The neutral safety switch which also powers the backup lights is a black switch mounted on a metal plate, so I would guess it is mounted to the shifter or the transmission. If you have a column shift check the bottom of the column, if it is in the console look around near the shifter.
Otherwise it would be on the transmission near the shift lever.

Are the fog lights and running lights on the same fuse? I have one fog light and one hazard/running light out on the drivers side of the car.

The fuse for those systems would control more than just the 2 lights on one side so it is not the fuse.You should check the bulbs if you already haven't and check the connectors to those particular lights.Good luck! Greg

The fog lights on most vehicles sit directly underneath the headlight bulbs. The ballast and wiring work just like the headlights, so changing them takes not much time. The procedure to change the fog light is as follows:-- 1) Open the hood and reach down underneath the headlights to unplug the electrical plug from the fog light assembly. Squeeze the top of the release tab and pull the connection off the bulb's ballast. 2)Turn the fog light counterclockwise to remove it from the fog light housing. 3)Install the new fog light bulb.Then connect electrical plugs properly. 4) Test the fog lights by turning it ON. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

2002 yukon no brake lights but third brake light works

ed7882 I had the same exact problem and thought it was a fuse or the wiring. Come to find out it was just a blown bulb. They are inline together with the cruise so if one blows it all goes. So change out the lights and that should fix it for you.
