    Do we have daytime running lights on our ZX's? I have a 99 and my fog lights don't work and the book says that the fuse is shared with the daytime running lights. The fuse is fine and the driving lights are new, but still nuttin. Any suggestions. Thanks yall

    Add me to the list with this exact problem. And yes, DRL's are mandatory in Canada.

    I have a '98 and there are no DRLs. Fog lights only work when the headlights are turned on though. When I first got it I thought they were not working.

    Just to pipe in. Even if your car doesn't have DRL, you'll have the fuse for them. My car doesn't have power windows, locks, or sunroof, but I have the fuses for them. As long as it was a factory option, the means of it to work will be there.

    Strangely, the DRL relay power is drawn from the 10A DRL fuse. But, the power to the DRL's is drawn from the 10A FOG fuse. Check both fuses. Since each DRL is controlled by its' own relay, and you have issues with both, then the problem has to lie in a shared connection. You may also want to check the DRL resistor (if replacing a blown fuse isn't the issue) to make sure it still has continuity and the wires aren't melted.
