About Fog Light Relays

The Jeep fog light relay is a remote electrically operated switch and is used in some vehicles wiring to minimise the voltage loss from the battery to the fog lights. In basic fog light wiring systems, the power will travel from the battery to the fog light switch and then to the fog light. When a model> fog light relay is fitted, the voltage foes from the battery to the relay and then directly to the fog light. Because the power has a shorter distance to go, the voltage loss is smaller meaning that the fog lights perform better and put out more light.

The fog light relay is also used to protect the switch from overheating from high amperage, and can offer more flexibility to your circuit. This can mean that you can operate the lights to only come on when other conditions are met such as only lighting when low beams are on.

Relays can fail because of oxidisation, or due to a faulty connection in the relay socket or overheating. If the Jeep fog light relay shows signs of failure your fog lights may become dim. This can eventually lead to fog light failure.

Jeep trivia

  • There is a 1953 Willys Jeep on display in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, with the curators calling it "an example of automotive design in its purest form." The Jeep was added to the museum's collection in 2002.
  • The Jeep is the only vehicle to have won an American Purple Heart medal. The award was given after a Jeep was the first US presence on the beach at Guadalcanal. The Jeep was only slightly damaged, with some bullet holes in the windscreen, but General Eisenhower called the Jeep one of "the three tools that won the war."
  • Nobody knows where the name 'Jeep' comes from or why it was used. One theory is that it's a play on the phrase General Purpose Vehicle (GP), while others maintain that Jeeps are named after a character in the Popeye cartoon, Eugene the Jeep.
  • Jeeps have been seen a lot on the small screen, with perhaps the most recognisable being their use in the award-winning TV show Breaking Bad. Both Hank Schrader and Skyler White drove a Jeep, although it was Schrader's 2006 Jeep Commander (XK) that looked the best.
  • People that own a Jeep are very keen to show it off. In 2015, research was carried out that showed Jeep is the second most popular car brand to see on Instagram. The Marque is the most popular Jeep model on social media. While this is a surprise when you consider the bigger names in car manufacturing, the fact that Jeeps can become such an integral part of the travel experience may go some way to explain the Instagram popularity.
