Default problem with driving lights

Since I have owned this car the driving lights have not worked. I have put new bulbs in checked fuses and all wiring looks good, is there anything I'm missing?

When you say driving lights are you talking about the fog lights?If so,are you pulling the end of the light switch out while the lights are on?

Have the same problem with my fog lights. Currently there is no fuse in my box for the fog lights. I found out why. When there is a fuse the fog lights will not turn off. So I have no fuse and no fog lights. Have you had a problem with your headlights not coming on? I get that from time to time, need to replace the controls I do believe.

Monitor51, your problem is the multi-function switch (the stalk on the left side of the steering wheel). They go bad and when they do, the fog lights won't turn off. The previous owner was too cheap to buy a new stalk and just pulled the fuse. The new stalk will run anywhere from $75 to $100 and your problem with headlights and fog lights will go away.
