Fog light question
Have been meaning to ask: ever since I picked up my 2008 Lux 3 a few months ago, I noticed that neither fog lamp turns on. The switch (push in) activates the icon on the dash, but no joy with the actual fogs. I can't even tell if there are bulbs behind the bezels, which are not cracked or have any apparent damage. My question is, do I actually HAVE fog lamp bulbs in there? is there a dedicated fuse for them that can be out? (Everything else is working, including the cornering lamps). Perhaps a wiring issue? My previous Deville DTS had fog lights that were straight forward and independent of the headlights. Any thoughts are appreciated.

If the fogs light are not working when you have it at low bean there 2 things that you have to check the fuse at the at the fuses box on the passanger side front the other one is that that same fuses box bolt there 3 of them get loose and it loose the connection of the harness.

Re: Fog light question
I am not sure if there is a difference in configuration between the US model of the 2008 DTS and the Canadian model. There should be a section in your owner's manual entitled "Electrical Systems" that has diagrams for the different fuse blocks on the vehicle. I do see on p. 5-98 and 5-99 in the US manual that there is a designated fuse for the fog lamps.
All the best,
