Headlamp Switch
vza - 1 week ago
99 boxster base..When turning on the fog lamps the manual says to pull the knob to the 1st position for the fronts and 2nd position for the rear. Is the knob supposed to remain in the pulled out position, mine returns back to the normal position so essentially my fog lights only stay on when holding the knob...Just confirming I need a new lamp switch thanks v

In order for the dogs to work the lights must be on.
First turn the switch, then pull it.
Happy Boxstering

So...turn switch to the right to turn on lights. then pull turn to the left for fogs? Manual says something about pulling to 1st stop for front fogs and pull to 2nd stop for rear fogs.My switch springs back to normal position when pulled is that normal?
Pull and turn before letting go

Also, there's only one rear fog light.
... one click you will light up the right side parking lights.
Two clicks light up the left side parking lights.

Ok..rewired my headlamp harnesses and figured out how to operate my headlamp switch thanks to your responses and all is working good so no need for a new switch BUT I noticed my xenon low beams are different colors. I read that 1 may be not aligned with the other....is this true..makes sense cause when I look at the beams at different angles the color matches. thanks v
