Default Fog Lights Off

My 1997 SSEi has both fog lights OFF. The switch is in the ON position. I checked one of the bulbs and its OK. What should I look first? Is there a relay that controls this circuit?

first, you know that the fogs won't work when you have your brights on, right?

And ONLY when the parking lights or low beams are on.

I already know about the high beams. They used to work but now they're off. The switch in the overhead console is lit when I turn it on but the fog lights don't turn on. I checked both bulbs and they're good. Is there a relay that controls them?

I checked the service manual and it refers to the Lamp Control Module Relay. Where'* is it?

do you have a digital multimeter? You might want to get one before you go any further as it may save you some headaches....I am pretty sure that most of the help suggestions here will include testing circuits for power...

I don't have a 97 FSM handy to check the schematics. PM Echo or Sonoma. I know both of them do.

Yes, there is a relay, and it'* very likely above the passenger side hushpanel attached to the a-pillar (above your RF passenger footwell).

It MAY have a legend when you get in there to show which is which. Or it may simply be marked with a relay letter designation.

With the parking lamps on, you should be able to toggle the switch and feel one of those relays clicking if it works, but you'll need the specific relay location if it'* bad.

No such thing.

The LCM is a module, not a relay. I know mine is buried up by my column. Not sure on yours.

OK I checked the fog light connectors and they're no voltage. I don't hear the relay when I turn on the switch.
