Factory fog lights

I have tried to search for this but haven't seen anything so starting a new thread. My factory fog lights do not turn on when I turn my lights on. Is there a way for me to adjust it so they will? I see plenty of other wranglers with them on at night, not sure why mine don't.

I bought a flashcal when I upped my tire size, and I saw an option on there to make them daytime running lights, and it works fine. So at least I know they are functioning, but when I turn the headlights on my fog lights shut off.

Anyone have any input on this? Dealers around me are pretty horrific, and it's not worth making an appointment over, so I'm hoping someone else has had the same issue and has an easy fix.

To turn the fog lights on you have to pull out on the switch that you twist to turn the headlights on. They don't just turn on with the headlights.

Turn on your headlights and pull the switch out on the end of the stalk.

Sorry should have clarified that I understand how they're SUPPOSED TO turn on. I am aware you pull the switch to turn on the fogs. When I pull it, they do not turn on. Hence the thread.

Thank you both though, as that would have definitely been an EASY fix!

There is no way to make them day time running lights. But you can turn the park lights on and then pull out the switch to get the fog lights on.

If you program the Flashcal back to the stock settings and the fogs still don't work, then it sounds like there's an issue in the stalk.

Actually, yes you can on a JK using Flashcal or equal programmer. I've done it on my 2015.

.........also With the Procal/Flashcal you can program DRLs to your hi's, low's, fogs, front grill turn signal indicators.

Then take it to the dealer. They're not working properly.
