Common Problems of Toyota Corolla Fog Lights
Having trouble with your Toyota Corolla fog lights? We can help you get to the bottom of the issue. Discussed below are some of the more common Toyota Corolla fog light problems:
Are your Toyota Corolla fog lights producing subpar illumination? The lights themselves are most likely not to blame. Instead, there's a very good chance that this is an electrical system issue. Weak illumination is being produced by your fog lights because there isn't enough energy to go around your vehicle. That isn't normal, of course. It only means that you have a depleted car battery or a busted alternator. Replacing one of those (the faulty one, of course) is the only way to put an end to this problem.
There are only two things that can cause one of your Toyota Corolla fog lights to flicker-a loose bulb or problematic wiring. With that said, check if the bulb is loose. If it is, reattaching the bulb properly should resolve the issue. If the flickering persists, move on to the wiring and check if it's loose or damaged. Just like a loose bulb, loose wiring can be fixed quite easily. Damaged wiring, on the other hand, would have to be replaced.
Fogged Fog Lights
Ironically, your Toyota Corolla fog lights can become fogged. This is a problem that shouldn't be underestimated since fogging can significantly affect the illumination produced by your fog lights. And there's only one culprit behind this-moisture. The only way moisture can make its way inside one of your fog lights, though, is if there's an opening within its structure. Fortunately, fogging can be remedied without much hassle. All you have to do is to wipe the fogged lens with some soap, warm water, and baking soda. But to prevent this problem from occurring again, make sure that your fog lights are sealed properly. If moisture entered your fog light through a crack in the lens, then you'd have to replace the lens.
Lack of Power
If your Toyota Corolla fog lights won't turn on at all, you can bet your house that the fuse that's connected to them is blown. You won't be able to use your fog lights until you've replaced the blown fuse. Don't worry; a replacement isn't expensive. Installing it shouldn't prove to be difficult, too.
