FAQs—Ford Fog Light
- My Ford fog light is damaged and I need to replace it. What are the factors to consider when getting a replacement?
Before purchasing a new fog light for you Ford, verify first with your local laws if it is legal. Some countries, states, and locale have restriction on the color and kind of lights that you can use in your vehicle. When selecting for the bulb type of your Ford fog light, you may want to consider each type's pros and cons. Halogen, which is the cheapest and the oldest type of light, is most susceptible to burnouts. LED, on the other hand, is the most durable, but is quite expensive.
- There are so many available Ford fog light styles available. How do I know which one is best for my Ford vehicle?
Because manufacturers and suppliers offer a wide range of fog light styles, it is best to choose the appropriate style based on its compatibility as well as your personal preference. A grill mount, for instance, is commonly rounded and larger compared to the other styles. This is usually installed in trucks and SUVs. Rack mount style, likewise, may be round or rectangular and is also normally mounted on trucks and SUVs. For factory-style fog lights, bumper mount lights are fitted on designated holes.
- While driving, one of my Ford fog lights suddenly became dim and then, died out. Where do I start checking and how do I fix it?
Similar to any other electrical components in your vehicle, a broken fuse may be the reason for a faulty fog light. You can start checking by using a plastic fuse puller to take out the light fuse. Then, inspect for any indications of damaged wiring. Replace the light fuse accordingly with a new one from a reputable supplier and ensure that it fits properly inside the fuse box. You may also want to test the fog light switch and relay by using a test light. In addition, inspect the bulbs and wiring.
- Due to the wet season, the lenses of my Ford fog lights become fogged up, making it look awful and inefficient. Is there a way to clean the lenses without taking it to a mechanic?
Before removing the cover, make sure that your vehicle is off and cooled down. You can start removing the light grill covers, the unit, and the bulb. You can use facial tissues and cotton sticks to clean the inner sides of the lenses. Use water and soap only when cleaning. Do not use abrasive scratch pads. You may opt to leave the light unit open overnight in a dry hot area to make sure any water residue can evaporate.
- My Ford fog light has burned out and I am thinking of not replacing it anymore, as I don't use it much anyway. Will there be any implications?
Fog lights are essentially designed to protect drivers during low visibility circumstances such as rain, snow, fog, or total darkness. Without fog lights, you are exposing yourself to possible blown tires and other accidents. You may opt for an aftermarket Ford fog light. Aftermarket fog lights may give you a wider price range and style selection.
