It sounds like your multifunction switch has an internal failure and needs to be replaced. This is the part that you flip to use the turn signals, wipers, cruise control, fog lamps, etc. This can be an expensive part, but it is almost certainly the cause of your concern.

Let me know if you'd like to know how to replace it. It is a fairly easy part to replace.

Hope this helps!

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.

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!

If i were you i wouldn't worry about the second relay too much .because there is only one , the DRL relay !Guessing never fix's automotive electrical problems ! Testing is the name of the game , with the aid of wiring diagrams an reading an understanding how the electrical circuits work . An learning how to diagnose correctly .

The instrument cluster controls the headlamp systems that include daytime running lamps (DRL). The system allows the headlamps to operate at a reduced intensity when all of the following conditions apply:
• The engine is running.
• The transaxle is not in the PARK position.
• The normal headlamps are not on.
The instrument cluster turns the DRL system on by grounding CKT 592, thereby energizing the DRL relay. This action allows a reduced voltage of 6 volts to flow across the headlamps. If the vehicle has the optional fog lamps, the fog lamp relay will also be energized. The park lamps will turn on and the fog lamps will operate normally. When the headlamp switch is turned to the ON position, the instrument cluster allows normal headlamp operation.
The instrument cluster also has an input from the park brake. If the park brake is in the ON position, the DRL will remain disabled until the park brake is placed in the OFF position. On vehicles with an automatic transaxle, the instrument cluster will disable the DRL until the transaxle has been taken out of the PARK position.
Headlamps
A rocker type switch is located on the left side of the instrument panel (IP). The rocker type switch controls the headlamps. One switch position turns on the following lamps:
• The parking lamps
• The side marker lamps
• The taillamps
• The license plate lamp
• The IP lamps
• The interior lamps
The second switch position turns on the headlamps in addition to all of the above lamps.
An IP lamp dimmer control is provided in order to vary the intensity of the IP lamps. Turn the control past the full bright detent in order to turn on the courtesy lamps.
The under hood lamp is designed to turn on under the following conditions:
• When the hood is raised
• When the parking or headlamp switch is on

You probably have a open circuit in the wiring for the passanger high beam .

Your best bet would be to have a qualified repair shop check it out . May have a broken wire somewhere in the wiring harness .

Fog lamps dont work i check fuses and relay the switch shows the fog lamps are on


If you have not replaced the headlamp with HID, the next thing, are the high beams on ?

If you turn the high beams on, the indicator lamp on the main headlamp switch should go out.

Next thing would be to check the fog lamp relay in the fuse panel ( passenger side kick panel by the fuel inertia switch ).

The fog lamp relay is a half size ISO relay, you should be able to swap with the trailer tow parking lamp relay ( R201 ), to test with.

The fuse you checked is the F17, the fog lamp fuse for Relay R202, correct ?
