I have a 2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.7. I have fog lights. the bulbs are there.. the wiring is there, but i cannot find out why they wont work. i read on here that ppl have a switch on the headlight stick and u pull out. well mine does not have that switch. i cannot pull out on anything. there has to be a way for them to come on. why would jeep put fog lights and wiring if their were no way to turn them on? plz help thanks
well i know its not on the stalk.. cuz i actually ended up breaking it trying to pull it out.. but, are their really auto ones? that do not have a switch? because all the wires are there, ive checked and the relay was already there.. and the fuse is in good condition for the fog light as well...
There are switches which allow auto headlight operation, but not auto fogs. Sounds like you either got the wrong switch coming off the factory line or the switch went bad and was replaced with the wrong one. I am sure you can get the right switch from someone parting out a WJ.
Also, you have to twist the knob to the parking brake or headlight setting before it will pull out. If you just try to pull it out in the "off" position, it won't move... and you'll break it.
yeah i tried pulling it out when the lights were on, my jeep has the auto headlight and the switch i have has that setting, just no fog light setting, i took it off and notice the harness that goes back toward the fuse and relay box has 1 empty spot, and its the same spot that the switch i have now has a spot without a prong, is it possible jeep put the fog lights with bulbs in and the wires, just never connected them to the steering column?
better yet, what color is the wire for the fog lights? maybe i can find that and go from there...
i wonder id at somepoint somone got a used bumper that had fogs in it and hooked the wires up thinking they would work, i believe the wires up front are always there or atleast theres a goid chance of them being there even if you didnt have factory fogs right?
On my 04 it was a blue wire that went up to the stalk that powered the fogs. I know this bc I installed the oem fogs and the stalk they sent me didn't work. The stalk is easy to switch in and out.
If you know someone with a GC with the same stalk but with the fog switch you could hook his up real quick and check to see if its your switch
