No fog lights.

Hi guys,

I just bought an 08 F350 and the fog lights are not working. I replaced the bulbs and the fuse is not blown. There is no power going to the lights and I can hear the relay clicking when I pull the switch on the dash. Any ideas or has someone encountered a similar problem?

I would say you have a bad switch on the dash. Had this issue on an old truck. You can pull the switch out of the dash and test to see if you have power coming from the switch but I bet you dont.

The switch is probably ok if you can hear the relay clicking when you engange the switch.

Use the attached Fog Light diagnostics guide.

The relay contacts might be bad - new relay?
