they are not fog lights, they are actually cornering lights used in fairlanes ect, originally they light up when the indicator is used lighting up the direction your turning,

so there is a chance you don't have the wiring??



oh, and this has nothing to do with the 6 cyl engine.. so thread moved to exterior medication forum..

Usually Faimont Ghias and Fairlanes were fitted with cornering lights. Most if not all Fairmonts did not come with them, (may be optioned up). I would say that yours has been fitted later with the cornering lights just for show and never hooked up. Standard Fairmont looms don't include the wiring.

I had cornering lights that I put into my old EL Fairmont wagon. I bought a complete driving light wiring loom kit from Supercheap for $19 and wired them up as you do with driving lights. I wired them up to the parkers so they come on when you put the lights on.
