No Fogs w/Auto Head lights and wipers

I noticed to day that the fogs don't come on with teh Head lights when the wipers go on. They work fine when it gets dark.

Re: No Fogs w/Auto Head lights and wipers

Hmmm...I never noticed that. I always thought they came on whenever the headlights came on regardless...as long as the button was pushed for them to be activated. Was the fog lamp light lit on the dash?

No I didn't have the light on the dash and if I push nothing happens but if its dark out or even early morning they work fine.

Re: No Fogs w/Auto Head lights and wipers

Did you have your high beams on at the same time? As far as I am aware, there is no inter-connection between the operation
of the wipers (either manual or auto rain-sensing) and the fog lights.

From the 2012 Owners Manual, page 184:


The fog lights will operate only when the parking lights
are on or when the vehicle headlights are on low beam.
An indicator light located in the instrument cluster will
illuminate when the fog lights are on. The fog lights will
turn off when the switch is pushed a second time, when
the headlight switch is rotated to the off position, or the
high beam is selected.

Maybe it has something to do with my auto high beams being on.

Re: No Fogs w/Auto Head lights and wipers

If fog lights is on with head lights, the only time they should go off is when the high beam are on. Mine does not go off when the wipers is on.
