    ive been told the light should go on in the headlight knob when the foglights are turned on - ive changed the bulb, but it still doesnt work - any ideas?

    Have you pulled your knob out fully (stop it now). Two clicks for the rear fogs? Then checked.

    Pull harder !! :eek: The first click is for the front fogs the second pull for the rear. It only illuminates when the rear fog light is on.

    You may find that your headlights must be on to get the rear fogs on (switch out two clicks)
