Lost my fog and running lights!!

On my last trip home I noticed that my fog light switch was no longer illuminated while turned on. When I got home I saw that my fog lights were not on and I lost power to some of my running lights too.

As you can see in the picture I still have my tail lights, rear clearance light, back and middle side markers.

I have lost power to my fog lights, front side markers, amber lights on the head light assembly, and front clearance lights.

My headlights still work, they are off for the picture.

What could be causing this? Where should I start looking?

I think you need the ignition and running lights to be on for the fog lights to work. This sounds like a running light issue and not a fog light issue (I think fog light power comes from the BCC). Have you checked the fuse panel by the left side of the brake pedal? I don't know if there is a relay control or not.

The coach is running in this picture with the running lights on. The front half and the fog lights do not have power though.

I will check that fuse panel.

There is also another fuse panel under the hood. Check both fuse panels it could be in either location.

1st thought is a fuse. Possibly a relay but check fuses 1st.


Good Luck !

I think there maybe 2 fuse locations Uber the hood and one inside under dash
Under hood one area maybe against the firewall the other is in a black box that is more easily accessible than firewall

Looks like there is a firewall fuse panel and relay panel and another fuse on to the left of the brake pedal on the firewall inside. Here's a bunch of possibilities to help you zero in on the right fuse.

May be some changes in 2017 but likely not to the standard fuse locations.

I checked all the fuses in the panel at the back of the coach, the panel under the dash by the brake pedal, and the fuse panel under the hood. All the fuses were good.

I took fog light switch out and replaced it, but that did nothing because there is no power going into the switch.

While the front side markers and the amber lights on the headlights do not illuminate, they do come on for the turn signals.

I talked to the Forest River tech support today and he told me that there is another panel in the house battery compartment. I will be checking those tonight.

That would be the battery control center (BCC) box.
