Either poor grounding near the lights or a high-resistance connection in the power wiring to the lights. Possible bad control switch or loose fuse connection. Try removing the bulbs, then replacing them several times to clean the socket connections. If this helps, spray some WD-40 into both sockets and turn the bulbs several times. Hope this helps!

Main beam lights not working


It's possible the "main" lights elements have burnt out.
I believe it's a single bulb per side with both high and low beam elements inside.
Try replacing a bulb and see what that does.

How do you switch on the rear fog lights on a 2004 jeep cherokee uk model . The front fog lights work. Should the rear fogs come on when you switch on the front fogs or is there a seperate switch...


Try and see what happens when you put it in REVERSE? There are many American Vehicles that the light only works when you are in Reverse to see what is behind you

Fog lights dont work


On my Jag the headlights had to be on and the engine running.
Does your owners manual say anything about these requirements ?
Have you checked the fuses to see if they have power ?

2001 jaguar s type - Right tail lamp failure message.... I replaced bulbs and fuse and tail lights still don't work but the dual element right break light does illuminate when I press the break also right...


There is a harness that you unplugged for the rear tail lamp. Make sure it is fully pressed and locked. This is always the cause on jags for tail lamp failure.

99 A4 tali light assmbly missing top bulb passenger side


That's the rear foglight socket. The rear foglight idea is European, and they ship the Audi over with a rear foglight as well, but it's only on the driver's side (that's the way rear fogs are done in Europe). That socket is fully powered though, and wired to the same dash switch as the driver's side rear fog. What you can do (what I did on my 99 A4) was to use a drill and **** out the rectangular opening in the rear taillight panel, and then put a bulb in that socket. Voila, instant dual rear fogs.

This is a good idea because in Europe, the police understand that a rear fog is only on one side. In the US, our police don't always know that, and you may get pulled over if you have that on - they may think you have a blown taillight bulb. Do the dual fog mod as described above - it'll save you the hassle and it looks better too.

Low fog lights dont work s type jag


look in the fuse box (should be one in the engine compartment possibly near the battery) for the relay that controls your fog lamps... it may need replacement... you have checked the bulbs to make sure they are not burnt out ?

I have a UK registed, Feb 2000 AUDI A6 2.7T QUATTRO AUTO ESTATE, Is it right that these are fitted with just one rear fog light that operates and the other is just for show.


Yes it's true. What I did on my US-spec A4 is to pull back the trunk lining on the passenger (right) side, where there is no functional foglight (my rear fog from the factory is on the left side). What I found was that the "bulb tree" has a fully powered socket for a bulb that would fit into a rear foglight on that side, but no bulb was installed. The part of the taillamp that would have a hole for such a fog bulb had a **** instead. I used a drill to widen the **** into a hole large enough for a bulb, and installed a bulb in the bulb tree, and voila - dual rear fogs:)

Rear Lights Malfunctioning


Hi,

Usually when this kind of thing happens it will be a bad earth, that means that somewhere within the lighting circuit the earth cable has broken down. Try and locate the earth cable that connects the rear bulbs, see if any rust or damage is visible.
If not you could try adding a seperate earth cable to a clean point close to the bulb holder in the rear.

If this fails to work then it may be an idea to talk with an auto electrician.

Good luck.
