I recently purchased a 98 Forester (on eBay, and about 20 miles after picking it up I deduced the head gaskets were blown, but that's another story... with a happy ending thankfully).

I can't seem to get the foglights to come on. I have the lowbeams on, but when I press the foglight button on the dash to the left of the steering wheel nothing happens. In the owners manual it looks like the button itself should light up, and the foglights should come on, but neither happens. Is this a wiring problem, do I simply need a new bulb, or is it something else?

From what I understand the OEM fogs are pretty worthless anyway, but if it's a simple/cheap fix I might as well do it.

Thanks for any help!

Most likely a burned out fuse. Check the fuse box.
