First pull a bulb and check it. Next check for power at the socket.

Hopefully someone with a like coach can tell you where to push the magic button.

yup
did that and turned on the switch on the dash labeled fog lights,
tried with the engine running and not running with key on. I am loosing patience with them
they must be on the same gremlin as the big white docking lights, just behind the front wheels, still cant get em to workie , even tried reverse and engine running and thought i saw em come on...but it was an illusion


i emailed damon and asked for a CURRENT wiring schematic

much grass

wellll
today i chased wiring
the two center lights are labeled as DRIVING lights
i followed it all the way back to the relays in the forward "E" Bay under the drivers seat
it connects to the same relay that powers the fog lights and they work. but for some reason the terminal at the relay for the "driving" lights does not power up? so tomorrow i plan to remove said relay and trouble shoot it


i assume' no one drives or gets caught out at night around here but me
still chasing the big clear lights behind each front tire.....

yep its me again, i called Damon and was sent a great wiring diagram breakout sheet.
sooooooooo
here is what i found, these are "driving lights" set to operate in conjunction with the high beams,

Here is what I found using the diagrams.

In the Forward ECC compartment under the driver’s window at the 2nd relay (starting at the front and moving aft) indicated in breakout box “B” on sheet 5 of 6.

Headlights on, and switch pulled out, key “on”

Wire labeled “fog lights”; orange w/ black stripe 12 plus volts, this wire originates at the BCC fuse panel

Wire labeled “driving lights”; dark green w/black stripe, no power

Wire labeled “fog lights”; Brown w/ black stripe 12 plus volts this wire is connected to the relay and drops down to the firewall pass thru connector

Wire labeled “high beams” green wire, no power

Select HIGH BEAMS in the cockpit and the following are the readings I get at the relay

Wire labeled “fog lights”; Brown w/ black stripe. No power

Wire labeled “driving lights”; dark green w/black stripe, no power

Wire labeled “high beams” 12 plus volts


Now on low beams the outer fog lights will come on if either the headlight switch is pulled out or the dash rocker switch is selected, however I discovered by accident if you push in the headlight switch and only select the fog lights with the dash switch, the fogs will come on and then if you select high beams the center driving lights will illuminate. Then the wire labeled “driving lights” gets energized.


so for all of you mystery sleuths the answer is short and sweet, if want the center set of driving lights to operate, then select the fog light switch on the upper dash and leave the headlight switch pressed in vice pulled out for fog operation, this will let the fog lamps illuminate and when you select high beams the fogs will go out and the driving lights will come on. i couldn't have done it without damons customer service folks

The fog lights will not come on until the coach is in gear either. They work fine for us in low beams while driving but shut off as soon as you shift out of gear.

i have em all working now with just the key on, no engine running.

i seem to think no two are wired exactly the same, especially after talking to the tech guys today... it must be a monday , Wednesday thing on the assembly line
