    Gremlins are controlling my foglights!

    I have a U.S. spec 2000 S4 with a fog light problem.
    When running my front fogs, they will mysteriously turn off.
    They may stay on for more than an hour or they may stay on for a few minutes.
    I thought that there was a short between my high beams or turn signals, because they would turn off when I would turn on the highs or signal lamps. But recently they are turning off spontaneously.

    By the way: I have no electronic mods at all - it's totally stock.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    I had the same problem, i don't either have any electronic mods. I'm not sure what it was but i hasn't done it for a long time. Dealership will charge around $300 to fix.(i didnt get it fixed)

    i dont know about you guys but on my a4 the foglights only work on low beam, so that may explain why they go off when you switch to high beam

    Switch or relay would be favourite in my eyes.

    Or you could have the gremlins which originated in all BMW's [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Even in my beemer, until I grew up! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
