Came out from work today and my left front fog light was on. Strange i thought and drove home. The fog light still refuses to turn off. Tried fog light ON on the stalk and both lights come on. When turned OFF the right one turns off while the left one is still on.

Tried removing fuses in both the engine bay area and the ones in the drivers compartment but no fuse is listed for the fog lights in the manual and i did not find the right one. So desperate to not flatten the battery over night i removed the bulb.

So WTF is happening? Why on earth did the left fog light decide to be always on? :?:

Hi borsiin, welcome to the forum.

You could try fuse no. 4 (20A) in the engine bay, worth a try as front fogs aren't mentioned in my manual either.. ... -t494.html

As for why its on, could be a short circuit through some damaged wiring? Has any work been done on it recently, or maybe water got in somewhere it shouldn't, but that's uncommon for such a young car.
