Rear Fog Lights

Recommended Posts

A friend was driving behind me during some very inclement weather and said I only had the drivers side rear fog

light working. I checked the bulb on the passenger side and...it was missing. I swapped the drivers side bulb in

and it still didn't work. Is this normal ?? Is the passenger rear fog light a euro option only, not intended for US

use ??? Any suggestions welcome !! Vehicle in question is a 00MY Cab Tiptronic

You only have one rear fog light.

On RHD cars the rear log light is on the right side. For LHD, is the left side. Porsche has a socket on each side to accomodate both LHD and RHD markets.

The light helps drives behind you see the proper place to pass. If you had 2 rear fog lights, they could be mistaken as brake lights.

Most US drivers will have no idea why your driver's side rear "brake" light is BRIGHTLY on but not the passenger side.

I wired both left and right "FOG" lights into ONLY (no street/parking) the brake circuit so there is a more pronounced indication of braking.

Some cars, in good weather, drive with full fog lights on.....so you can be forced to drive behind a car with an uncomfortably bright, rear light. Short of Stooge slapping them, there seems to be little solution. I suppose, like some engineers want on high-end airplanes, you could add a dog as a copilot--that bites you every time you reach for the controls. People shouldn't own cars if they can't even manage simple controls. Seems like I've seen this more on Jaguars than any other marque.

Just like people who don't know we have parking lights for the left-side and right-side of our cars, depending on which side of the street we park on.

I was lucky enough to have another Porsche owner driving behind me one day who saw this and later explained it to me.
