I have OEM fog lights in my 05 Ram 1500. The other day I noticed the lights were not coming on. I checked the fuse (#41 I think) and it is good. Could the light/fog switch be bad? Both lights went out at the same time, so I do not think it's the bulbs, although I have not checked them. Please give me some ideas.

I think they use a relay for those, it could be bad. Just swap it for another one in the fuse block.

Relay, switch or even bulbs. Check them. I had both headlights go out on me at the same time once. Happens rarely, but it can happen

Where is the relay? Is it in the fuse box? Are they all the same so I can use another one to see if that works?

I know it might sound stupid, but make sure the harness is plugged in at the back of the fog light assembly. Mine stopped working and somehow they both had come unplugged. :crazy:

I've had the same problem a couple of times. One time both of the lenses had cracked which caused both bulbs to blow out (happened twice). Another time the harness had a bad connection and burnt, right where the bumper harness plugs into the main harness, right below the drivers side headlight, on the rear of the bumper.

Thanks for the help. As soon as I removed the bulb assembly from the fog light housing, the lights came on. It was grounding out somehow. It has been raining here non-stop so I have been driving through many deep water puddles. Water must have got into a connection. Thanks again!

I have never used it on lights before, but is di-electric grease okay to use? I wondered if that would help keep water or slush etc out of the foglight connections. I have a scarred up foglight connection because it came loose and moisture got in there. I wondered if di-electric grease would be okay to put in the harness?
