How to replace bulb on fog lamps suzuki xl7 2003


this info is in the operators guide, lost that? in the glove box.
my 07 manual shows no fog , lamp instructions
it says contact dealer and as you know they are DOA. Chapter 11.
any mech can do this..
some fogs are optional added lamps to some years, and makes and in some countries (not stated)
but in general its 3 ways.
Look at the lamp , see it?
does the front have screws on the lens. , remove it.
if not its a rear access lamp
gain access to the rear and remove the socket, and replace the lamp,
if all this is too hard, and still a wana DIY,
you could go to alldata.com and read how. under lighting,.
or post a photo of said fog lamp.. my 04 has no such lamp. BTW.
if the lamp need body panel removal. then in the FSM (or above link) you'd read the section under body. for how todo that.

Anybody know why my fog lights on a mkV R32 won't


Well, First, you get the "dttech DIY auto repair person of the week award" for at least LOOKING in the Owner's Manual first! That is better than MOST Fixya users would do. Probably 90% of the Owner's Manuals in peoples glove boxes are still in the wrappers they came in from the factory!

The reason the Owner's Manual is no help in finding the fog lamp fuse is because the fog lamps do not have their own fuse. The power for the fog lamps is actually supplied by the Vehicle Electrical System Control Module (VESCM), which is located under the left side of the dash.

The fog lamp indicators in the instrument cluster are actually a completely different circuit than the fog lamps themselves. The Instrument Cluster Control Module (ICCM) turns these lamps on when the VESCM sends a message over the data communication line to tell the ICCM that it has turned the fog lamps on. So my guess is that there is no indicator on the dash because the VESCM is not commanding the fog lamps to turn on.

The possible reasons for this could be that the VESCM is not recognizing that you are WANTING the fog lamps on (due to a switch malfunction or a wiring problem between the switch and the VESCM) or the VESCM is malfunctioning, or the VESCM has detected a short circuit in the fog lamp circuits and is refusing to turn them on in an effort to protect the vehicle from burning to the ground.

So, in short, the BEST way to figure out why your fog lamps are not working is to scan your onboard computer network for possible fault codes and check the live input data from the light switch to see if the VESCM is recieving the message that you are trying to turn the fog lamps on, as well as see if the VESCM is commanding the fog lamps on (probably not, or the dash indicators would be on).

Welcome to the world of modern auto repair where the vehicle manufacturers go to GREAT LENGTHS to keep you from figuring out these thing for yourself an FORCE you back into their dealerships for repairs......A whole other subject that really eats my craw!

Looking for fuse for fog lights on a 2008 dodge charger. we installed a fog light kit. the car is pre-wired for them. we replaced the head light switch with the one from the kit. fog lights arent...


Check your instructions with the fog lamps, I believe you will need to take your car to a dealer to have them activate the fog lamp driver in the Totally Integrated Power Module.

Need a fuse box diagram to wire in fog lights


Fog lamps are installed on the front bumper. The switch is located to the left of the steering column on the dash panel. The fog lamps are turned off by the circuit relay when the high beam driving lamps are turned on. The circuit relay is located on the right front wheelhouse panel near the blower motor.

Good luck, and remember rated this help.
Removal & InstallationFog Lamp Element
See Figure 1

Fig. 1: Exploded view of a fog lamp assembly

  1. Remove the lamp stone shields, the four bezel attaching screws, and the bezel.
  2. Remove the reflector assembly from the lamp body.
  3. Remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Remove the element from the bulb.

DO NOT handle elements with your bare hands, always handle with a clean cloth. Oil from your hands will cause the element to fail.
  1. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Fog Lamp Switch
The fog lamp switch is removed and installed by simply prying the switch from the instrument panel and unplugging the electrical connector.
FOGLAMP BEAM ADJUSTMENT

  1. Position the vehicle on a level surface, facing a wall approximately 25 feet away. Remove the lamp stone shields and loosen the adjustment nuts.
  2. Turn the fog lamps ON and adjust as follows:
    1. Distance between the light beam centers should be equal to the distance between the lamp assemblies on the bumper.
    2. Height of the light beams on the wall should be 4 inches less than the center of the lamp assemblies when mounted on the bumper.
  3. Install all previously removed items after turning OFF the fog lamps.

Fog Lights stay on


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.

Need to change fog light bulb in my 97 mitsubishi 3000gt and cant figure out how to help please


Firstly remove undertray from front bumper approx 15-20 screws 2 of which are screwed into either side of the inner wheel arch near the bottom, you should then be able to see the back of the fog lamp. On the back of the fog lamp you will see a black circular shaped peice of plastic, turn this anti clockwise then remove, you will then see a metal clip holding the bulb in place this unclips from one side and you can then remove the bulb and replace with a new one.
