    The bulbs plug in inside too don't they?

    The fact the lights working on the dahs rules out the switch, relay and fuse

    Check you have 12volts when they are swithed on at the black wire of each connector, likewise check the brown wires earth

    Autosparks the bulbs do plug inside the fog on spade sockets if thats the term for them tried swapping them around and visa versa but no look. How easy failing 12v don't run thru to wire them in to sidelights what am i up against is it mot legal???

    What wires wud that be SQ Man. I have touched or seen any wires on the inside, as far as i am aware the only thing inside you need to worry about is the relay and switch and fuse

    The wirings inside the car mate, the fog light symbol wouln't come on if its not

    Running the fog lights from the sidelights it against the law, will probably result in a pull by the police and will fail the mot
