This may sound stupid but did you check the bulbs? My Dodge Caravan sport had foglamps and BOTH bulbes went out at the SAME time.

Montanez,

First Take off the CAPS LOCK...it's like shouting on the internet. Second, yes pulling out the end of the stawk will do two things...turn on the running (amber) lights and turn on the fog (white driving) lights. The fog lights won't work until you have the high, low or running lights on. Do the rest of the functions on the stawk work..ie left and right turn signals, high & low beam headlights? Some owners have had problems with the multi-function stawk itself. ALSO, the number #8 fuse (15A) in the fuse panel by your left knee is the fuse for the fog lamps...check it out.

Minor correction - fog lights won't come on if high beams ("brights", and a blue light on dash lights up) are on, only low beams & running lights (first and second clicks on the same stalk you pull out). If high beams are on, pull stalk toward you, then pull outward on stalk for fogs.

Picky, Picky, Picky !!! It's probably the fuse anyway. []

Is there a way to make the foglamps come on when the brights are on?

Has anyone used those ultra bright headlamps? What is involved with switching to such a system?

I changed both the low beam headlights and the fog lights to the ultra white lights. Got them all at Wal-Mart. The fog lights are easy to get to, just a rubber flap between you and the connection as your lying on your back. The headlight can be changed by going thru the oblong port in each of the wheelwells. They're a little bit of a hassle as the space to work with isn't very big, but it can be done.

Thanks for the advice guys..I have tried all of the mentioned troubleshooter tips but still no fogs. I am feeling that there is a problem with the stawk itself....notice the CAPS are off? Thanks again. 2001 Limited Edition all stock for now...Montanez

Well, you're not alone:

I've read that replacing the multi-function switch isn't that hard...
