Default More questions

Here I go again. Just took my car in for (Virginia) safety and emissions inspection. My fog lights won't turn on so that'* a failure since my car has them, they have to work. Any troubleshooting ideas?

My car is posting the P0410 OBD II code (secondary air control). What should I be doing to fix this?

Lastly, near the front of the bumper on the passenger side, there is a random connector hanging out. I don't know where it goes, and there is a similar situation in the trunk. The connector in the trunk is clear, and I have no idea what it is supposed to be connected to.

As always any help will be appreciated.

1. Are you sure the bulbs are still good? Fuses, relay, plugs, etc? If you don't want them, you could probably pull them out to pass

2. Tech info is your friend: https://www.gmforum.com/obd-ii-trouble-shooting-153/p0410-285584/

3. Pics will help identification immensely

Make sure the fog lights are plugged in. That might be the random plug you see hanging down.

Just discovered that the plug was in fact the fog light! I didn't realize it because aside from the plug the entire rest of the assembly that goes into the lens is missing. Anyone know the part # for the socket that the headlight goes into? This time I did read the tech article before posting, I just don't know where the AIR system is located so that I can inspect it. Can I get a photo or description of where it is/ what it looks like?

I swear that I'm not this stupid in real life. Looks like the light just plugs in. Thanks for the help.

To follow up with all of this:

1. Fixed, by uh replacing the light bulb.
2. Are there any visual guides anywhere for this? From what I've read, it'* possible that replacing the fuse for this part can maybe fix the code. http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/inde...howtopic=38241. Does this apply to my car?
3. Photo of the other plug in the trunk

I really wish I didn't have to ask all of these simple questions, but they don't make Haynes manuals for these cars. Thanks everyone for your help!
