    Fuse and Relay

    I have been unable to locate the correct fuse for the front fog lights. Since it may not have one, I wanted to find the fog light relay to check it, but don't know where the relays are located. Can anybody give me instructions? The Owner's Manual is useless in this regard.

    What lights are you referring to? The only actual fog light (as I understand it) is the single rear red fog light.

    What I normally would have initially thought is a fog light is our hi-bright halogen light.

    If we are talking of the same thing that is.

    You guys are so right. They are the high beams. Now I am embarrassed!

    Don't be embarrassed. When I picked up my Z8 at a BMW dealership I had the sales person running around trying to fix the front fog lights. It wasn't until he brought over a mechanic who had reviewed the shop manual that we figured out the "fog lights" were really the high beams.

    ... and the hih beams are the only source of light on the Z8. The low beams merely suck all the light out of the surrounding darkness.
