Factory fog lights.......GRRRRRRRRRRR

On a 95 YJ. The fuse on the engine compartment firewall is good, I've replaced the relay at the same spot, the light on the dash switch is lit, I've replaced the bulbs, dimmers are on, the wires from the relay to the light are good, everything is grounded. What else can it be?!?!?! I'm stumped.....is there another relay, fuse, light oil dipstick (haha!) somewhere that I need to check? I'm about ready to just buy some utility lights for cheap, mount em up, run them to a switch and then call it a day.....

Any thoughts?

How about the switch itself? Do you have another switch that you can wire in to check it? What happens when you power the lights directly? Do they light up?

Contact points and everything are cleaned, the lights light up fine when I run them directly. The switch itself has three input wires to it.....not sure how it's wired. That may be the prob.....I'll see if I can get another switch.

Okay, I got them working...seems whoever previously had the switch apart had the wires hooked to the wrong connecting pins, so that when you switched the switch on, you didn't have the contact you needed to live the wires.

Thanks for all the replies!
