Component Description

FRONT FOG LAMP OPERATION

When the lighting switch is in front fog lamp ON position and also in 1ST or 2ND position or AUTO position (headlamp is ON), the BCM detects FR FOG ON and the HEAD LAMP1, 2 ON or the AUTO LIGHT ON. The BCM sends a front fog lamp request ON signal through the CAN communication lines to the IPDM E/R. The IPDM E/R then turns ON the front fog lamp relay sending power to the front fog lamps.

The combination meter also receives a front fog lamp request ON signal through the CAN communication lines at which time it turns the front fog indicator ON.
