Fog lights quit working. I have checked power at the plugs and there is power. The light comes on on the dash but no lights. I have checked the switch and it works. I followed the wiring from the lights and found that its tied into the parking/headlights. Any thoughts on this?

Do you
have the same problem?

If there is power to the bulb itself then sounds like a bad ground to the bulb.

The black ground runs back to the wires at the head light

So does your ground wire to the bulb have less then 2 ohms to ground?

So the lights work now?Because if you have a good power and ground to the bulb it should be working.

Nope, not working. I did some more messing around with the switch and found that is probably the answer. The switch is one where you turn it for the parking and headlights and press it for the fogs. I found that after pressing in repeatedly on and off the fog light looked like it was trying to come on. Im gonna replace the switch and hope thats it.
