    Thread: Fog Lights??

    1. 12-03-2013 07:00 PM #1
      Hey everyone! I just got a 13 CC R-Line in Candy White last month... I love cars and had researched everything about the CC before I bought it, but there is one thing I can't figure out. When the headlights are set to "auto", when do the fog lights come on? I have noticed them being on at random times. I can't decipher a patter or reasoning and it drives me crazy.

      You need to pull the headlight switch out to actuate the fogs. They dont turn on automatically.

      Maybe what you are seeing are your turning lights? Your fogs won't come on in auto, turn the knob all the way to the right then pull out on the switch to turn them on.

      They actually do come on in auto. I never switch the knob from auto and I have noticed numerous times when I'm behind a car or facing a window in a store that my fog lights are on. It is random though. They aren't always on and there is no rhyme or reason to it.

      When you have your wheel turned left or right, doesn't matter which way, the fog lights will go on which are the turning lights

      Yes, I think that will happen if you are at a stop or in neutral with the wheel turned. Also if you are at a stop and turn your blinker on that side turning light will turn on.

      Interesting... I do notice a slight delay with fogs turning on when I turn the switch. Aren't the turn lights part of the headlight assembly vs. the fog lights?

      Fog Light isn't that smart with the Auto, most of the time the user have to switch it on.

      The light that comes on when you turn is the Puddle light from the bottom of the mirrors, they come on in 2 occasions
      1) directional turn
      2) signal light on and vehicle is under 20 mph

      **Update : Just reviewed the manual, and I'm wrong, but it's just weird how one fog turns on the illuminate the corner @@**

      I agree with you.. But I just don't understand what is happening with my car. For instance at lunch today... I was behind a truck and noticed my fogs were on with my DRL. It was a sunny day and my lights were on auto. Am I the only 1 with an R-Line that this happens to??

      It has nothing to do with the Fog Lights for the R-Line, and shouldn't for the Sport and Lux too
      I have to disagree with that, I replaced my puddle lights with LED's and the light that I see is not from under the mirrors. My puddle lights are a nice crisp white and the light that is projected when turning is yellow.

      That is correct, the fogs on the 2013 and newer turn on when turning the wheel to assist with illumination.

      On the 2012 and older, it's the highbeams that turn on.

      Highbeams dont turn on for turning ! There are dedicated cornering lights which turn on when you turn on turn signal or turn your steering wheel.

      If highbeam was a light that turns on how would you get light on side of your car and not on front of you hmmmm
      And what about at night.. dont you think you will be blinding people every time you "turn"

      I'm not sure what year this CC is, but here is a quick video of a side cornering light in the headlight. Now I have to look and see if my 13 does this with the fog lights?

      I have a 2013. Never have my fog lights automatically turned on without me pulling the headlight switch out with the switch on "on" mode. Our cornering lights are also in the headlight cluster as well.

      Yep, me too. Furthermore, at least on my 2013 R Line, I have a separate dedicated bulb that is actuated with steering/turn signal. Fogs do not turn on automatically.

      Here are pictures to prove it. I have my lights on auto. Noticed my fog lights on. Took a pic. My LEDS look like they are not working but it is camera. This is why I'm confused. My fog lights are on in auto!

      Your LEDs look different in this pic too. Do they light up and wrap under the head lamp?
