When driving at nighttime, your vision isn't the greatest, never mind if you're dealing with snow, fog, or rain. With all of this going on, sometimes your headlights just don’t seem like enough. That’s exactly why fog lights exist and are so popular among drivers. These lights help to illuminate the road that extra bit more and can make a massive difference in how well you’re able to see. Fog lights are found on the front bumper of your car, but are positioned quite low to the ground. The idea is that they produce a wide flat beam of light across the road.

Obviously, you won’t need them on at all times, which is exactly why there is a fog light switch. This switch gives you the ability to turn them on and off as you please, so that they don’t have to run constantly. This switch is completely separate from your headlights, meaning it works on its own circuit and has its own wiring.

While your fog light switch is meant to last the entire lifespan of your vehicle, this isn't always the case. Should your switch become faulty, it's important to get it replaced as soon as possible. Here are some signs that your fog light switch isn't working as it should.

  • You turn on the fog light switch and nothing happens. It’s safe to assume something is going on here, but having a professional mechanic diagnose the problem will uncover what exactly needs replacing.

  • Keep in mind that sometimes it may not be the switch that is faulty, it could be as simple as your fog light bulbs being burnt out. It’s wise to check your bulbs first to be sure they are in fact okay.

  • In order to replace the fog lights, you'll need to have the trim panel removed and then put back. An expert mechanic is really the best for this kind of job.

Your fog light switch is what you use to turn your fog lights on and off. When this switch becomes faulty you won’t be able to use your fog lights, which can compromise your safety. It’s best to have it inspected as soon as possible to determine what the problem is.

If you’re experiencing any of the above mentioned symptoms and suspect your fog light switch is in need of replacement, get a diagnostic or book a fog light switch replacement service with a certified mechanic.

BMW Z4 - Serpentine/Drive Belt - Roseville, California
Jeff was prompt. Jeff knew his stuff forward and backward. So much so that I went from my initial brake and rotor job, which turned out great, to setting an additional appointment to have a serpentine belt and a/c belt replacement job to be done by Jeff as well. Both jobs were done at my house. I would definitely recommend Jeff to my friends and I will plan on using him again if the need arises

Toyota 4Runner - Brake Warning Light is on - Las Vegas, Nevada
Yelp has, once again, helped me find a very reliable/dependable service. Patrick was mentioned more than once on all the reviews so when I booked my appointment with Yourmechanic, I was crossing my fingers that they would send Patrick to look/inspect and work on my truck, and they sure did! Patrick showed up at my place of work as scheduled (7 a.m). Talk about prompt and punctuality (and utter convenience for me)! I contacted Yourmechanic because my brake warning light indicator suddenly lit up. I also decided to get the valve cover replaced since Meinekere commended it every time I would get my oil changed. Yourmechanic quoted me way lower than what Meineke quoted me for the same work/service. 25 percent less, to be exact. Upon inspection of my truck, he made recommendations for the needed service/work but, surprisingly, not including the valve cover and gasket replacement. I found Patrick to be very professional, efficient, honest and highly knowledgeable. Most importantly and what matters the most is that he is genuinely a very honest man (unlike some, if not most. of auto/car mechanics who will take advantage of one's knowledge, or lack thereof, when it comes to car maintenance/repairs/service) . I found his dedication to his profession remarkable as he spent just about all day as worked on my truck in the parking lot under the desert sun! After he's done with the service and test-driving my truck, he gave me some "post-service" tips/recommendations. Patrick is THE man! I found me my regular to go mechanic!
