Default Looking for fuse for foglight on my '90 SSE...


Hello, first pardon me for my bad english, I'm doing my best...
First time here, so I'd like to say i'ts very great to read all your useful comments !
I bought a beautiful '90 SSE last month and I had to repair a lot under the car: brake and gas lines, all the brakes and other little things but now I'm very proud to drive my Bonnie.
I would like to change the fuse for the foglight... if I ever find it !?!?
Can someone help me ??
Thanks...
GreyWolf

The fuse for your fogs is to the right of the glove compartment box.
I don't know what # it is right now, but I do know it'* the same fuse for your horn.

I'll look up the fuse # tonight when I get home.

Default Thanks, Merlin, you're right !

The fuse for the foglight is right behind the glove box, where you told me !
Unfortunately, I changed the fuse and it still not working. Maybe an electrical problem...
By the way, Merlin, the fuse for the horn and the one for the fogs are one under the other. If you read the owner'* manuel it says on page 334 that the fuses are under the direction column at the right ?!?!
Many thanks for your help !

Check for voltage at the fogs. Do you have burned-out bulbs?

Second idea is a bad relay.

Default Thanks for your comment, fuddyduddy121 !

I'm going to check the bulbs first, I think it'* a good idea, like you can see, I'm not a mechanic. By the next week-end I will go to see my friend who is a mechanic and I will ask him to check the voltage.
Would you be kind to explain to me what "a bad relay" is ?
Many thanks,
GreyWolf

Must be different for the 90 model... cause I know the fuse for the fogs are the same as my horn for my 91..... I had major problems when I "upgraded" my fogs, and anytime the fuse blew, my horn stopped working.

A relay allows you to switch on a large source of power, like a fog lamp, with a small source of power, like a small fog lamp switch. They are located near the firewall and also under the dashboard.

in 1990 the Maxi-Fuse center didnt exist, so all the fuses and stuff are in the car. 1988-1991 had a major problem with the fog lights. they dont ever last long. the case leaks and the wires and things rust very badly. so if they dont work now, i bet they will have to be replaced. But yes, on the 1990 the Horn is on the same as the Fogs, its not labeled liek that in the manual. if you look at your manual and compare the fuse chart to the one on the plastic cover under the steering column they list different things is different places!!! so dont always trust your manual for fuse locations!
