Fog Lights...

I searched but couldn't really find anything relating to my question. In the manual it says some models have fog lights, on the other models is there still a socket for the fog light? It's just that I have fog lights but have no clue on how to turn them on. Is there a button somewhere?

are you asking how to turn on your fog lights? If so, its right where you turn on your headlights, just a lil closer to the steering wheel

that's weird because that switch only turn the top light on, not the high beams but the lights above it. I'm referring to the bottom fog lights, it seems I can't get them to work at all, hmm.

Look at the indicator stalk. You will notice there is a rotating switch on the END of the stalk. That switch turns on your running lights and headlights.

You will also notice a ring switch just before the end of the stalk. That ring switch turns the fog lights on and off.

It is worth noting that because of legal requirements, the fog lights will not turn on unless the headlights are also turned on. This can be modified by re-splicing some wires under the fuse box. there's a good DIY called "Foglight rewire" if you want to do this.
