Default Ford Ranger, 2001, Fog lights?

When you turn on your high beams with the Turning signal switch it cancels out the fog lights. However, when you go back to normal beams the fog lights are suppose to come back on. Until recently mine wouldn't come back on except after a few seconds would go by up to a couple of minutes. Now they won't come on at all. Do you think the "turning signal" switch needs to be replaced and, if so, how big a job is that? Thanks for any help.........

Sounds like the turn signal switch dose need to be replaced. It sounds like there is a short in the wiring And unless your a good mechanic don't try to change it yourself the steering wheel has to come off and then there is a bundle of wires under that part of them go to the turn signal and the rest of them go to the rest of the
truck if you get the wrong wire you will have more problems.It is a good day job to get to the wiring

If your low beams are staying on and the fog lights are going out it is not the dimmer (multi-function) switch. Chances are that the fog lamp relay is faulty. A lot cheaper that a multi-function switch too.

if its anything like a 250, the fog lites are operated by the headlamp switch. grab the headlamp switch and pull out.
