What is the fuse label for the front fog lights? My 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe's right turn signal blinks fast but all the lights work except for the fog lights. I looked at the fuses but unsure which one it is or feeds off of. Any help if thats the cuase of the fast blinker or is something else wrong?

I have a 2003 LX. The fog lights work only with the headlights on. They do not work alone.
You didn 't give enough info and my first thought was you were trying to use them alone. Hope this helps.

in Santa Fe fog lights only work with headlights on normal, if keep it on high or on the turn signals it will be turned off automatically

It may sound simple but you may want to check if your high beams are on. The fog lights automatically switch off when the high beam arm is in the on position, even if the headlight switch is turned off.

You can do a simple mod, that lets you run the fogs without the headlights being on.

I thought that the factory setup was stupid, since there is often a reason to run fog lights with the headlights off, and rarely a reason to run them with the headlights on.

I actually wish that they would outlaw running the foglights at night, with no fog.......... Oh wait, here in NY it's already illegal, but no one seems to care.

I would like it, too, if I could turn the fog lights on and off independently of the low beam lights (2007 Santa Fe). How does one go about making that modification. Please give the steps involved.
================================================== ====

New Up-Date.

I was able to get to the wiring of the Fog light switch (located to the left of the steering wheel on my 2007 Santa Fe). The panel of switches pops out quite easily and then you can access the back of the Fog light switch where the wiring harness is located. Several wires are connected to the switch. I was able to find the input wire (bright yellow wire) from the headlight input (it is only 'live' when the parking lights or headlights are on).

I figured that if I bridged a 'live' wire to the input socket of this yellow wire at the back of the switch, then I could 'trick' the switch into thinking that the headlights were on (when in fact they weren't, the headlight switch was in the 'off' position), and then the Fog lights could be switched on (without the headlights being on).

Well it sort of worked. When I turned on the ignition to standby with the 'bridge' wire in place, the Fog lights did come on (without the headlights being on), but the Fog light switch itself did not work; the Fog lights could not be turned off while the 'bridge' wire was in place.

Anyone out there with the electrical knowhow of how to proceed from here?

Mike
