Fog light indicator (i dont have fog lights)

I was in a car accident 1 month ago and my front end needed to be replaced. tonight i noticed a green light on on my dash i looked in manuel and it said it is that my fog light is on (if equipped) i dont have fog lights. when i turn my headlights off the green lt stays lit on the dash. will this drain my battery and what does this mean. when i turn the car off it still is lit. could the body shop have done something when they reattached the headlights.

You likely have a pinched wire in your harness somewhere.
Those cars are prewired for Fogs whether you have them or not. If the wiring is pinched with another wire that carries current, it will backfeed through the system illuminating the fog indicator light.
That light does not normally have power with the key off, so knowing that it stays on with the key off, there is little other possibility other than a damaged section of wiring.
Take it back to the repair shop quickly so you can have a insurance supplement claimed.

    It's possible, depending on what else might be damaged. If it is strictly the dash light that is getting power and your battery is in good condition, I would say that it is unlikely it would kill the battery, at least not for a few days.

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.

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.
