ok so the model should only have 1 rear fog light that will come on , not both. is your car right hand drive or left hand drive? the light that will work will be on the same side as the drive side, also have you confirmed that there is a wire going to the fog light bulb itself?

ok, thanks, ***** ***** trying to pull up a wiring diagram to see what we can test, does the fog light switch have a light on it that comes on to indicate that the rear fog light is on? are there issues with any other bulbs?

UK Auto Mechanic: Lou P, UK Car Mechanic replied 1 year ago

ok, so we know the switch is working, so has the rear fog light ever worked? there was an issue where the fog light wiring was left disconnected at the control unit for some years that i have found.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the violet has no power
UK Auto Mechanic: Lou P, UK Car Mechanic replied 1 year ago

ok so we need to trace that one, did you confirm that fuse 25 is the fog light fuse?

Ask Your Own UK Car Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
actualy number 10 is the fog rear..and I checked that okay
UK Auto Mechanic: Lou P, UK Car Mechanic replied 1 year ago

ok so my diagram is close but not 100%, so there is a front control module that controls the lights from what i can find, but i cannot find where the module is exactly at that is the issue i am having. we need to test for continuity from the violet wire up to the control unit.
