    already removed both fog lamp fuses. there was a big squre and 15 in front of that. they were still on

  • Rene J Solis Aug 07, 2010

    Then, you have a short on the wiring, remove both bulbs to prevent battery drainage and carefully check for crimped or exposed wires. Use a test light while troubleshooting..

    I dont' know how! I tired that too. there are a hex srew on top of the light which looks it it ajusts the height and then there is a philps srew underneath which does not turn. It feels like I'm striping it!

  • Rene J Solis Aug 07, 2010

    You have to disconnect the battery negative cable so the bulb can cool off, once cool, twist the bulb counterclockwise and pull it out of the housing, then remove electrical plug from bulb. Connect battery cable back and start troubleshooting.

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.

How do i turn on the fog lights on 2007 srx?


good afternoon Anonymous.

The manual for this model can be found here:
https://www.cadillac.com/content/dam/Cadillac/Global/master/nscwebsite/en/home/Owners/Manuals_and_Videos/01_images/2007_cadillac_srx_owners.pdf on the Cadillac website. There is mention on manual page 181 of turning the fog lamps on and off with the Fog Lamp Band. If you look on page 167, it ties an illustration to Fog Lamps, showing you where the band is on the Turn Signal Lever.

Hoping this answers your question!

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.

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!

How to replace a front fog lamp


  • If your fog lamp is connected to or behind a grille, pop it out. This can be done by first removing the clips or screws connecting it to the car and gently pulling it out. (If your fog lights are not connected to a grille, proceed to step 2.)Find the bolts that hold the fog lamp in place; you may have to get underneath the automobile to do so.Using your ratchet wrench, remove the bolts.4Grab the connector on the back of the fog lamp, turn it counter-clockwise and pull it out. This should remove the actual light bulb from the lamp fixture.Remove the fog lamp from the car and place the new one in.6Place the light bulb into the new fog light and turn clockwise to lock into place.Bolt the fog lamp back into place, if you had to remove the grille, put it back now and screw/clip it back into place.Turn on the fog lights and make sure everything is working properly

    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.

    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.
