No, it's to piss off the person behind you who thinks there is a fault with your brake light.

bulb (c) will cover the entire lower part of the tail lamp cluster and it should be a multi purpose bulb. there is no outer and inner part of the lamp. the brake lamps are at the very top and they are isolated for only brake usage. so the rear fog lamp would be incorporated into bulb C.

Opening up this thread again. Does anyone have access to the Euro wiring diagram? I have the Euro light switch and Euro led tails and want to enable the rear fog light. Also, are there any changes that I need to make in Forscan or Focccus to make this work?

I have the wiring diagrams at the house. I think the tail light sections call out the fog light wire (as well as the pin location). If nobody does before I do, I'll pull it up when I get home.

If you can find it, I would love to have a copy of it. The US wiring diagram does not show the rear fog light option. I haven't plugged the tails in yet because I'm not sure if there's a wire going to the switch.

Let's see if this uploads.

You can see that the wiring diagram doesn't mention it, but the connector pin-out does. Pull the Ford.eu owner's manual and find out which bulb is supposed to be the "rear fog" bulb (look under bulb replacement).

I suspect that if you replace the switch, have the correct wires going to your tail light plug, and have a dual-fillament bulb where it should be, then should be able to go into Forscan or FoCCCCCCCCCCCCCCus and enable it.

Anyone have any other comments? I'm making a WAG here based on my own plans for enabling the rear fogs.

I'll check this out. I looked at the UK wiring diagram and didn't see any mention of it either. I didn't think to look at the actual connector. I suppose I'll need to deselect "US fog" and choose standard fog in Forscan/FoCCCus. Can anyone check to see how this is built on an "as built" EU or UK model? Or any other besides the US for that matter lol?
Something else bothers me, I don't see the reverse or stop/tail lamp pin out on the connector.
