    I did not add the fog lights. They these came on the truck when I bought it new> I have always thought that these were installed by the factory

Normally when lights are added after the factory, you add a fused circuit and a switch. How do you turn them on? Start there at the switch. There is going to be a fuse feeding it (hopefully) you should check it too. Look at the main fuse box and look for a wire stuffed under a fuse end, sometimes a guy will grab a circuit that way, it's at least fused.

    Then you know which switch turns them on right? Use a knife blade or putty knife and pop the switch out of the dash so you can check voltage coming to and leaving the switch. Check for a blown fuse at the main fuse panel too.

Location of fuse for fog lights on 2008 dodge grand caravan

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.

Dodge dakota headlight

The most likely cause of this is a failing Central Timer Module (CTM). The CTM directly supplies power to the headlamps and dash illumination. The head lamp switch sends a signal to the CTM, and then the CTM sends power to the lamps. Replacing the CTM should take care of this.

I have a 2001 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo that did not come with fog lights but has the plugs for the bulbs. I purchased the fog lights plugged them in but they didn't turn on. I was wondering if there...

If this vehicle came prewired, and all you had to do was plug in the fog lamps, then 50A fuse 7 in the power distribution center would be hot at all times, applying power to 15A fuse 24 and the fog lamp relay. Setting the left multifunction switch to FOG causes the body control module to close the fog lamp relay and turn on the fog lamps. It is possible your Jeep came prewired but without the fuses and relay so a dealer could install them to make your fog lamps work. You can check whether the fuses are in the box and OK and whether the fog lamp is installed or just an empty socket. Once everything has been checked and any missing parts installed, your fog lights should work.

Is headlamp connector a three wire connector? One should be voltage, hot all the time, use a digital multimeter to check for voltage. The others should be ground. Your dimmer and headlamp switch are on the ground circuit. One way to check ground would be to use a redundant ground jumper wire, If the lamp then works correctly, the problem is ground. Hopefully you can bypass switches to rule them in or out. If you bypass switch and lamp works correctly, then the switch is faulty. Just my opinion.

99 dakota fog lamps wont work although headlamps still work.

Check the relay to the fog light, it's the fuse and relay box under the hood behind the battery. Take the relay out labeled fog light and switch it with an other relay for now just to see if it is the relay, it the fog light's work then it's the relay. If they don't work then it's the switch, good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
