    Is this possibly a case of RTFM?

    My apologies if it's not.

    Check list.
    1. Ignition on
    2. Engine running. Maybe not required - depending on age of vehicle.
    3. Sidelights on
    4. Fog lights on.

    I didn't think mine were working until I found out they only come on when their switch is on and main-beam is selected.

    Not sure if this is factory or a previous owner mod.

    You shouldn't need main beam or dipped beam - only sidelights. :)

    Legally, front fogs should not come on when on main beam - only on dipped. Driving/spots with main beam is good but when you dip it should switch on your fogs - when you go to high beam it should be spots but no fogs.

    Fogs also have to have a "tell tale" light on the switch for MOT.

    Lots of people (I'm not saying you're one of them...) confuse fog lights and spot lights but there's a serious legal difference and it's all down to the classification of the lens. It will be stamped on them somewhere.

    Mine are definitely 'spots' (sorry, I misread the OP's question) and are legal here in France.

    Pretty amazing light output too from a factory setup.

    I thought my Serengeti had fog lamps, but they turned out to be driving lamps. Driving lamps have "HR" next to the E-in-a-circle, fog lamps have "F".
