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.

Can't get power to foglights on my 2003 Explorer


Power is applied to the fog lamp switch which is a separately controlled part of the main light switch. When the fog lamp switch is turned on, power is applied to the fog lamp relay in the battery junction box which closes to turn on the fog lamps IF 20A FUSE 19 and 15A FUSE 44 in the BJB are OK. Setting the multifunction switch to HI closes the high beam relay in the BJB, removing power from the fog lamps and directing it through 20A FUSE 46 in the BJB to the high beam lamps. In other words, you can have fog lamps or high beam lamps but not both at the same time

the multifunction switch is set to HI, the high beam relay in the battery junction box closes

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!

My fog lights won't turn on Nissan sentra GEX 2002


There are several things that can cause your fog lamps to not work. The fog lamp circuits need to be diagnosed. Your entire fog lamp circuit can be tested at the plug for the fog lamp relay located n the relay box.

PIN 5 on the relay should have battery power at all times. This power comes from Fuse #43 (15 Amp) in the fuse and fusible link box in the engine compartment. If there is power at this pin, the fuse and the circuit between the fuse and the relay is good.

PIN 3 on the relay goes to the fog lamp bulbs. There should be continuity to ground through the bulbs on this pin. If you have continuity to ground, connecting a jumper wire between PIN 5 and PIN 3 should make the fog lamps come on unless there is a short circuit to ground, which will cause Fuse #43 to blow. If there is no continuity to ground on this pin, the problem is either that BOTH fog lamp bulbs are burned out or there is a break in the wire between the relay and the bulbs.

PIN 1 Is the battery power for the primary coil in the relay. This power comes from the headlamp switch and power is only supposed to be present here when the headlamps are on and the dimmer switch is on LOW BEAM. If power is not present at this pin, the problem is a bad headlamp switch or an open circuit between the headlamp switch and the relay.

PIN 2 Is the control circuit for the primary relay coil. The control circuit should have continuity to ground when the fog lamp switch is set to the ON position. If there is no continuity to ground with the fog lamp switch on, the problem is a faulty fog lamp switch, an open between the relay and the fog lamp switch, or an open between the fog lamp switch and ground E37 (right front of engine compartment) and ground F7 (left rear of engine compartment) Please note: This circuit has redundant grounds....if one ground is not making good contact, the other ground can still make the circuit work.

PIN 4 on the relay is not used.

If all of the circuits/pins are working as described above, replace the relay.

That is pretty much it... That is all you really need to know to get your fog lamp circuits diagnosed. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Put new foglights on my 2002 hyundai elentra gls but dont know how to wire them


First of all, did the vehicle previously come with fog lamps? I'm assuming it didn't. Normally, each YM (Year/Model) Hyundai wiring harness is complete for every feature which might be included with certain trim specifications. However, you probably don't have the multi-function switch which has the 'Fog Lamp Switch' on it (Left Hand Turn & Parking/Headlamp Switches). However, the wiring for the fog lamps is probably there, you just need the multifunction switch which contains the fog lamp switch. The illustration attached shows where the wire harness plugs into the fog lamp bulb. This connector may be taped up in the wire harness out of the way (since I'm assuming the vehicle didn't originally come equipped with fog lamps).

I purchased a used 2008 Jeep Patriot and it didn't come with fog lights. I have purchased OEM fog lights but I am having a hard time finding the connector plug to with them. Suggestion?


I have not run into this problem before. Usually, people either purchase the vehicle equipped with fog lamps from the factory or they add aftermarket fog lamps to the vehicle after purchase. In your case, you are trying to connect factory lamps that were not there from the factory? I'm not sure that you will find the connectors you are looking for. I do know for certain that the factory fog lamps are computer-controlled and that if the vehicle was not equipped with them from the factory, then the computer will not be programmed to make them work. If the wiring and connectors are there at all, they will be coming from the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) located on the left fender. The factory wires are WHITE/YELLOW for the left fog lamp and WHITE/ORANGE for the right fog lamp. What about control switches,wire, etc. Did you purchase all of that as well?

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.
