Fog Lamps Dont Work!

4 posts in this topic

Got a 2001 Chev 2500 for some reason the fog lamps don't want to turn on when I push the button? I checked the bulbs and the fuses and still nothing. Anyone have any suggestions or experience with this happening? I also noticed the daytime driving lights are not working,(same thing with the bulbs and fuses)! Thanks

Fog lamps will only work when low beams are on, not high.

Is the truck from Canada? They have to have day time running lights installed up their and for some reason, when sold in the US the dealers used to deactivate that system (Fords it was like a recall). I think the power of the lights where to great for DRL standards or something to this affect, but ok in Canada.

Did you just get the truck? Have the DRL or fog lamps ever worked?

If yes and no, the DRL might have to be activated via the BCM and a scan tool.

Ya, I just bought the truck so I'm not sure how long they have not been working. The button for the fog lamps does not illuminate when pushed, nothing happends. I see your point with the daytime drivers. I don't know why anyone would have them disconnected,just from a saftey standpoint. That's kind of my issue, I preffer to have them on for the visibilty factor for other drivers. I know I prefer it when others have thier lights on,it's just alot easier to see people.

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
