Default 2005 XK8 Fog Lights - RESOLVED

The front fog lights on my XK8 do not work. As a novice owner, I would welcome any and all advice, instructions, and guidance as to how to go about fixing the problem. Thanks!

When you press the button, does the LED on top of the switch light?

Friendly check: you remember that the fogs only work when parking lights or low beams are on,right?

Were you able to check the fuse?

Let us know, I'm sure we'll figure it out with you.

First things first - check fuse no. 17 in the engine bay fuse box on the left-hand side. It should be a 15 amp fuse....

Default Fog Lights in XK8

Gents,
Thank you for your timely and "right on" responses. I am wearing a dunce cap in light of the fact that, yes with the low berms on, the fog lights do work! Duh!
