Fog lamp switch bad?

Car Description:
99 Prelude SH
Manual

OK so my issue is that I have OEM fog lamps on the prelude that I just recently bought (which is super awesome btw!:)) and well the fog lamps werent turning on, but the fog lamp switch was. When i would click it, the little green light would turn on. So i went to buy bulbs. I bought the LEDs Sylvania and man were they pricey, even w my discount $15 each. So I get home and install one and hit the switch and it lit up awesomely. So, I installed the other buld and put all the stuff back how it was. And when I go into the car to turn them on. The switch wouldnt come on!:( I tried turning all the lights on, the cruise light, turning the car on, hitting the switch repeatedly, disconnecting and connecting the battery. I checked the fuses but wasnt sure which one was the FOG LAMP one in specifically. What is it labled?

And I made sure they were connected in the front. Could it be my switch all of a sudden went bad?
Where can I get it?
How would I check?

Thanks!!!

Re: Fog lamp switch bad?

The fog lamp fuse should be part of the harness you're using and not within the actual fusebox.


it's possible the switch went bad - only way to test is to remove it, wire it back up and check for incoming/outgoing voltage when you turn the switch on/off

Re: Fog lamp switch bad?

Are you talking about the green light on the switch itself is not lighting up now? and the fogs outside are working? You know there is a little bulb in the switch that can be replaced. Maybe it has a bad connection or its possible the bulb is burned out. I already changed the bulb in my cruise switch, now my sunroof one is out and I have to change it.
