What is the Fog Light Switch?
Your fog lights function to reflect off not just fog, but also snow, glare, and dust particles – in brief, anything that can obstruct your vision. They can also help you to see animals, tree branches, or other debris on the road so that you’re able to avoid them. Fog lights are situated near the bottom of the front bumper of your car, and they deliver a flat, wide beam resembling a narrow bar. They function on a separate unit from your standard car headlights, which means that they use a separate switch, wired on a separate circuit.
Bear in mind:
Many drivers don’t know that their vehicle is equipped with fog lights.
How to Fix:
