Default Fuse and relay panel?

Hey, My foglamps were working great for 2 or 3 weeks but they quit on me last night. Apparently the foglamp fuse is on the "fuse and relay panel". Where is this located?

You will know if its blown if the horn does not work.
At lease on a 90 it won't.

Horn still works. I pulled the fog fuse and it was busted. I put in a new 20A for the fogs, try to turn them on and no go. I pull it out. Its busted. I tried once more to make sure it wasn't just a fluke and it blew again.

What do I do now?

Sounds like theres a short to ground somewhere after the foglight relay. shouldnt that fuse be a 25A? You could start testing wire resistances to see where the short is, maybe narrow it down.

Make sure on the proper size fuse, don't go and put a bigger fuse in there if it is not called for. I seen a car recently that the lights went out on it, so the guy just put a bigger fuse in it and melted the entire wiring harness under the dash of the car. The source of the problem was that his license plate light was grounding out.


I would start checking as much of the wiring leading up to the fog lights as you can, inspect it for any kind of missing plastic covering that would allow a wire to ground out. Oh and another thing, be careful, the fuse blew for a reason.
