Default Fog Light Fuse

Both lights are not working in my 2001 Cruiser which I just recently purchased. My high beams are not on when trying to turn on the fogs. I immediately thought about the fuse. I go to the owners manual and it tells me that Fuse #21 is the fog lights' fuse. I then go to the fuse panel and there is no #21. It stops at 20. Any englightenment would be most welcomed. Thanks.

Your looking at the wrong fuse panel. Not the one by your left knee, the fuse panel under the hood has the number #21 fuse for the fog lights. It's the black box right in front of the brake resivour. The one in the picture below where I have the K&N sticker.




Inside the fuse box. Picture is 180 degree backwards from the way the fuses are set in the box. I have no idea why Chrysler put the picture backwards, but this is how it looks in the owners manual. Pink colored fuses are spare for any accessories you might add.

Thanks Crewzin for the quick response. I looked and the space for fuse 21 is empty. I put a spare into it and still no luck. Any further suggestions would be helpful. BTW, nice underhood!!!

A simple question: Did you check out both fog light bulbs (easy to get to by lying on the ground and reaching up to take the bulbs out).

Another problem might be the multi-function stalk. That's the stalk on the steering column that incorporates the turn signals, lights and fog lights. Many owners have had the stalk "burn out" from using the fog lights as there's a very cheap part inside that overheats and melts causing the fogs to stay on or other problems with the normal lights. Sounds like the previous owner might have had this "burn out" and pulled the fuse to get the lights to go off, and now after some time, they won't go on even with the fuse put back in. There's no actual way of testing this except to use a volt meter to see if there is current going to the fog lights themselves when you turn them on.

If the stalk is "burn out", it's an easy do-it-yourself job to replace it but you need to buy another new stalk which I've seen run from about $40 to $80 depending on where you get it (eBay or dealer).

Thanks for the compliment. Here's the whole thing in case you haven't seen it before.
