well if it was like mine when I bought her she had the 2 inner boot lid lights disabled Brake/side lights and made souly into fog lights, but some have them under car a few differences, now I made mine work as brake lights, side lights and fog lights
worth a check
put side lights on first check them the flip the switch and see what happens, had the exact same switch in all 3 of my imported cars, slight difference being some had a illuminessence light or on on/off light

I've got exactly the same switch just in a different place for the rear fog.

My rear fog is in one of the reverse lights.

i have the exact same switch in mine to turn off the abs motor so i can skid without having to pull the fuse out.

I have 2 buttons like this, one where yours is has a little light on it, this is fog lights for me, tried and tested.

the other one makes some kind of compressor noise happen in the engine bay, and I am unsure as to what it is so I leave it off lol.

any ideas?

maybe it's like the abs button and I have been driving around with it off all the time lol, glad I leave breaking distance lol ;-)

mine stays off all the time now that i can afford tyres :twisted:

Peter do you take the abs motor relay out whenever you skid or do you just put up with it?

i swear this car is the worst for it, every time i touch the handbrake it activates the abs pump and the pedal drops to the floor when it is needed the most. i destroyed my front bumper in my mates yard when i forgot to switch it off. :oops:

Its funny you mention it now. ABS kicked in pretty bad and didnt slow me down at all on saturday. Think it was one of the reasons I went up the hill :lol: I was thinking of pulling the motor, because the fuse it soo much hassle. But wiring a switch is an awesome idea. The thought crossed my mind on saturday right after the crash :lol:

I normally just skid with it on, royal pain in the arse
