This seems kind of weird: on my car, there are no foglights, but I still have a foglights switch, and when it's depressed, the "foglights on" indicator appears on the instrument cluster. Normal?

Yeah, stupid me. I checked it after dark, and it's for the rear. Strangely enough, it's located on the HEADlight switch, and the icon that lights up when the switch is activated also looks like a headlight. Where is the (front) foglight switch located when the car is so equipped?

On the other top corner of the headlight switch.
Perhaps you could consider it an external lighting control.

Anyone know where I can purchase a rear foglight bulb? Or, better yet, should I bother my dealer for it (since I just bought it 14 days ago). Seriously, I'm sort of crappy at this kind of grovelling crud. I just want it to be in the new condition it is supposed to be in (for at least a month damnit);oops:.

For some cars the fog lights may be disabled due to DRL. you need to go to the dealer and have them reprogram it. cost around 130USD
Not quite true, the front fogs are only disabled if the dealer disables DRL but doesn't re-add the fog lamp capability when doing the Tech II changes.

The instrument panel indicator lamp is green for the front fogs and amber for the rear fogs. And yes, front fogs are activated using a seperate switch on the main light switch.

At any auto parts store that sells P21W, cost $1.19 - $2.99. for a pack of 2.

Excellent! How easy is it to take off the light lenses to change the bulb.

Actually you go in through the back by going behind the carpet material that is on the inside of the trunk lid. It is open behind there and very easy to get to.

If you only see one light it is because there is only one light bulb for the rear fogs for safety reasons. That's the condition the car is supposed to be in.

Never quite heard that that before, or I'm misunderstanding something! 130 dollars for a 10 minute Tech II change is Robbery, you've been had.
