If the bulb is ok then the cause of this problem woukld be the the Body controller module, the interior lightingh goes through this module, it is also known as the BCM, it can be function tested by the dealer with a scanner to see if the dome light circuit is at fault or the controller itself, there is no simple answer here.

Maybe is bulb failed; check it. Also review the your back hatch, can was without alignement?

If this doesn't solve it; then you have a short:
1. One of the door wires is corroded. Remove each door switch and tug each switch wire out; one door at a time to see which one causes the light to stay on or turn off. (Leave each door open with the switch / wire hanging out as you test all doors). Do not put them back in or let them touch "ground" during the test.

2. The wire near the dome assembly may be corroded. Remove the dome assembly and let it hang out. The light should go OUT when all door switches / doors are closed.

Hope helped with this. Good luck.

    In here is not an independent fuse, the headlight switch has a circuit breaker built into it. Also need check it.

How turn on my fog lights on 99 montana or its turn on by itself


Fog Lamps The fog lamps switch is located in the instrument panel switchbank. Push the fog lamp symbol on the switch to turn on the lamps. The indicator light will glow. Push the ribbed part of the switch to turn them off. The indicator light will go off. Your parking lamps or headlamps must be on for your fog lamps to go on.

Where is the fog lamp switch on a 2008 dodge nitro? I have fog lamps but I can't seem to turn them on, am I missing something here?

My fog lights are not working, the relay is fine but not sure where the fuse is? Don't want to buy a service manual for this one simple thing. It does not tell you in the manual.


I have a 2004 f150 xlt triton. I couldn't figure out the how to turn on the fog lamps and the manual was not helpful.

Solution: turn the light switch all the way to the right and pull the switch (out) towards you. Push switch in and it turns off. The manual says to turn switch all the way to right but doesn't say to pull switch out.

AND HALF WAH DOWN ON THE TOP SIDE IS THE SWITCH FOR THE FOG LAMP CONTROL IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REPLACED THE ELEC. SWITCH - (PUSH BUTTON OR ROCKER STYLE ).IN THE DASH. IF - - LIGHTS AREON AND THE FOG LAMPS ARE TURNED ON AND THE HEAD LIGHT GO OUT OR WONT CHANGE FROM DIM TO BRIGHT REPLACE HIGH/LOW SWITCH ON COLM. SAME PROCEDURE AS FOG CONTOL SWITCH.

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
558610d.gif
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.

Can't turn on the fog lights


hi from uk if you are meaning rear fog light/s ? they will be on the switch that has a picture of lamp with horizontal lines ? these will only work with headlight on also if you are meaning front drive/fogs then the same goes for these ie a similar switch near to lights switch or you may have to turn on h/lights then pull outwards the actual switch as on uk cars? the idea being if weather conditions req fogs then h/lights must be on also preventing driving on fogs only and no obligatory side/tail and h/lights here in uk hope this assists you locating switch ? wish you merry xmas

Lights


FROM: Lusty Kid:

Your fog lights should not work with high beam... they should work with the low beams. they are connected wrong, which probably drew too much current through the light switch burning out the contact points for the parking lights in the switch

Start by Fixing the fog light connections to work with low beams. Appears to me this was not factory installed. Aftermarket kit maybe! Then see if your parking lights work. If parking lights don't work still and everything else works, replace the light switch $50 at the dealer. The switch works the fog lamps when you pull out the knob to turn on the fog lamps when the lights are turned on. When the fogs are on you will see a little amber light to let you know your fogs are on. When you switch to high beam the fog lamps go off. Again if its not working that way, then is wired wrong. Needless to say, there should be connectors in the harness of the lights for the fog lamps. Use those if possible with the kit that you can get at the dealer, or you can splice the connector with those blue splicing clips sold at the auto part store. Make sure ground is ground when splicing and water proof the connection sith silicone and tape.
