Rear Foglight Switch

Recommended Posts

Hi y'all...recently posted re: a foglight switch problem....see below;

I recently picked up a Jap import Carina E GLi 1.6......fog light switch does not appear to be working....it does not light when depressed/pushed in......headlights on dip/dim, engine running.....no instrument panel light is visible.....swapped for another switch, checked bulb s in both......still nothing...I'm guessing it's possibly an open-circuit wiring fault somewhere.......anyone any ideas on anything simple I may have overlooked before I go rooting in the car innards...and anyone any advice on a painless and hair-preserving method of tracing the wiring fault also?

I downloaded the Carina E manual from the net, it's helpful re: wiring, but some of the terms for the location of the earth points on the car body are a bit vague...e.g. RH 'kick panel' anyone?

I'm looking to swap out the rear foglight relay....5 J8.....does anyone know from previous painful experience where I might find same on/in the car, and the earth points E8, E12, and E14 also?

Cheers

Jonny

Hi. The right hand kick panel is the trim by the side of the accelerator. Some of these are removed by prizing out, some by unscrewing a concealed screw. Look for a slight indent or plasric plug. Good hunting. Sid
