RE: How do I turn on my fog light?

Not sure but on my 96 C220 you pull out on the light switch after turning it to the headlights on position. I click out is rear brakelight on driver's side (called rear fog) 2 clicks out is that plus the front foglights. Headlights have to be on low beam.

It should be the other way around, 1 click out for front, 2 clicks out for front and rear, unless your switch has had some mod?

Hammer to the switch or light bulbs..I guess the seller of your car forgot to tell you they were 1 time only fog lights...

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

turn the headlight switch all the way to the right, then pull the switch out. Make shure that your high beens are off or else you won't beable to turn on your fog lights.

you may need to get a new knob, but DO NOT GLUE THE KNOB BACK. Just push it back on. I recommend that you go to a junk yard and get a used knob. I think it should only cost you about $3 or less. If you were located in the Houston area I would just give you a replacement knob at no charge.

Mine works, but the knob pulls off, I just apply a small bit of extra twist then pull, and they turn on... Also mine work regardless of high/low beams [:)]
