Default Fog Light Fuse- Location?

I've been a long-time lurker here, but just registered to ask a simple question. I know there have been some threads about fog lights staying on or not coming on at all due to a faulty multifunction switch, and that's what I'm dealing with at the moment on my '05 GT.

Since I don't use the fog lights, I'd like to yank the fuse, but my manual says the fog light fuse is located in slot 22 on the exterior (engine) panel. Guess what-- it's not. I've heard that it's actually in slot 8 on the interior (console) panel. Can someone confirm this for me?

And thanks, everyone. Though I've never contributed, these forums have been a great resource for me. I bought my PT Cruiser two years ago; I was torn between a BMW X5 and a Nissan Murano, and ended up going with the Cruiser instead. Reading these threads has helped me to love and enjoy my car far more than I expected, so thanks to all of you for your contributions!

It's the No.#8 fuse in the interior panel for the 01-05 cruiser.

Thank you! I appreciate your help. That's the direct answer I needed, and makes me feel much better after the conversation I had with the dealership mechanic, who made that classic assumption about girls and cars and told me that the fog lights weren't on a fuse by themselves, and it would be $400 to replace the multifunction switch. I felt like telling him that my other car is a '66 Galaxie, which I keep running just fine on my own, and the last time I worked on a Chrystler, I was jury-rigging the intake manifold of an '83 Lebaron with a hairpin, so he should throttle back and treat me like an equal.

Your quick response has made my day, and La Gata Negra (my car) thanks you!

Miss Rixatrix, Welcome to the Forum. How about filling our your profile so we have some idea where you are located.

I would have told him that you aren't a ditz, unfortunately there are men who still think that. I have know a few write up people who are women and they knew their business.

I changed out my muilti switch in mine a few months ago..It took all of about15 minutes to do (4 screws and a couple of plugs). I luckly found one at a salvage yard for $20 bucks (i had to remove it) we'll see how long it works for, (no problems so far. If you do decide to change it out post again and can give instructions on how to do it. Good luck!!!

What kills the MFS is the use of the fog lights a lot. The best thing to do is to remove the fog light lamp load from the MFS by the use of a relay to turn on the fog lights.
