Well that's just awesome, front fog lights now don't work.

Strange thing is, I can turn them on with the alarm fob. It's a feature I asked for when I got it installed.

Hold the auxiliary buttons and the front fogs come on but not with the switch.

Any ideas?

Sounds like your alarm installers have "censored" up
Black is not a colour ! .... Its the absence of colour

I'm not sure they have tbh, I know the guys well and they are "censored" hot, been trading for years.

I really need an auto spark to look at this.

Ok, after checking every fuse yet again and then checking all the relays where pushed in properly.

Then pushing the relays in the drivers footwell I have both front and rear fogs working. Although the near side front has blown a bulb.

Changes the bulb and all is well.

However, and I have noticed this for a while, I have the front fog switch constantly on so whenever I switch my sidelights/headlights on the front fogs always come on.

When I switch the sidelights/headlights off it takes a fair few seconds for the front fogs to switch off, is this normal?

I don't remember either of my previous MR'2s doing this. Does anyone else encounter this "issue"?

Oh, and before I forget, the UK MR2 front fogs are the fucking stupidest design ever for removing just to replace a sodding bulb.....
