Default Re: Fog lights.

I don't think it's fixed. The indicator light does go off when I push in the MFS switch, but it doesn't stay off.

If I use the turn signal or even hit a bump on the road, the indicator light goes on again.

How much does a new MFS cost normally? Are there any instructions on this site detailing how to change one?

I'm not very mechanically inclined and I don't have a small torqx driver. Are they relatively inexpensive? I figure it can't hurt to have one in the long run.

Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated...

Good luck finding a switch there is over 5000 of them on national back order, most of the suppliers I called only could say good luck locating one I ended up bypassing mine all together for $60.00 at a local car stereo shop doing the wiring.

I have an 01 Cruiser Limited non turbo.

That's what I figured after reading through another thread on this same subject.

Bypassing? To another external switch or something?

I don't have any fog lights installed yet, and I am hesitant to do so until I can fix this indicator light problem first.

I know I'm mostly encountering problems that are old news around here, so any insight or tips is much appreciated.

To turn the dash light out for now just pull fuse #8 it the fuse block that is in the dash, behind the little door. IT is just for the fog lights.

I found a multiswitch at he junk yard for $20 bucks(had to pull it myself) when I first bought mine in July. I got it out of a newer car so hopefully it has some life in it. I hoped it being from a newer year it will have a lot of life in it and made better then in 2001. Real easy to change...15 minutes.....4 screws(torx) and pop off a few wiring clips

I installed my set on Saturday using a separate switch and a relay.
(they work like a charm) I may sell the multifunction switch that came with the kit.

Wow. That looks sharp.

Let me know if you are selling that MFS. I'm interested in buying, if you decide to sell it.
