    Fuse 22 (touch the lead on the metal bits on top of the fuse at both sides)
    Green/yellow wire at back of main light switch
    yellow/violet wire at back of main light switch
    yellow/violet wire at back of fog light switch

    Fuse 22 = both sides 11.38
    Green/yellow main light switch = 11.34
    yellow/violet main light switch = 2.7
    yellow/violet fog light switch = 2.7
    Yellow/gray fog light switch = 2.7
    Pin 86 of relay base. = no steady reading
    The rear fog light switch has 11.34 both wires
    Hope this helps

    try shorting across the two main light switch wires mentioned above with a piece of wire and see if the fogs come on. Switch off the fog switch first, place the short then switch on the fogs.(relay must be in base)
