May 7, 2006Forgot to check that, oopsie. Had 2 PM's from you hehe
May 7, 2006Check your box again....you have pics now! Hope they help!
May 7, 2006Henry, did you re-wire your fog lights so that they can be turned on when the headlights are off?
If so, I would investigate wherever the power has been spliced in from (often the cigarette lighter, or some other place in the console).
In the past were you able to turn the fog lights on when the headlights were not on?
By default, the fog lights cannot be on without the headlights, and cannot be on with the high beams. (So, you might also check to see if your high beams are on right now... that would keep the fogs off).
May 8, 2006I just used the wires that was pre-wired from the factory. No re-wireing is done. Just using the stock wires.
Gonna use a meter so see if there is power at the fog-light connection.
May 8, 2006I bet you have to add a relay & a fuse. I did on my truck when I added fog loghts.
May 8, 2006Henry, I took a look at my mom's old car over the weekend, since I put her's in. (Now my bro-in-laws car) anyway, I looked it over and there was only one wire that I had to tap. It was a yellow wire that I had to wire into a 12 volt power source. Provided you have all the wiring down correctly, it sounds like you may have either a bad switch or a bad relay.
Does the light on the switch light up at all? Turn the headlights on and flip the switch to get the small amber light.
Wish I could help more
May 8, 2006The little orange amber light come on, when I push that button. Guess I got to tap that yellow wire.
May 8, 2006Sorry Henry, wish I could help out a little more man. Good luck!

Did I say Relay yet?
May 8, 2006Here you go Henry. Sorry I am slow on this one. This is just the first chance I have had to sit down and get everything together.
Not sure how readable they are but it looks like if you have the orange indicator light (left side of the circuit is working) and your horn works (uses the same fuse) the only other thing that would stop them from functioning is the lack of a Fog Lamp Relay in the engine fuse box. Get a relay, plug it in and I bet you are golden!
And I would not tap that yellow wire (runs from fog light switch to relay) for power! By doing so you are pulling power from the circuit that is only designed to energize the relay. It is not designed to power the fog lights. The fuses and switches in that circuit are not designed to handle the higher current loads of the fog lamps.
The only other failure point that I could see is a bad ground coming off the fog lights or a bad wire somewhere.
Let me know if you need higher resolution shots of these diagrams.
May 8, 2006Sam I didn't catch that, can you please re-type it?
Thanks for all your help guys. Please email me the high res once at firstname.lastname@example.org
Will jack up the car and look under and over it after dinner, right now I'm enjoying the 75 degree weather in the yard. Been driving with the top down all day, so the car needs too cool down a little too before I put my hands on it.
