Size:  8.1 KB symbol on my dashboard. The manual says it's for rear fog lights. Is anyone's Mirage equipped with them?

    Does anyone know what color it's supposed to be? I assume red but...?
    I would like to open up the hole and add a LED in there that comes on with DRLs for a little visibility from the rear.
    Will weld for beer.

    Yellow.

    /Edit: The dashboard symbol is yellow. The rear fog light itself is red. In my previous car it contained the same light bulb as the brake lights. Don't know about the Space Star.

    Color depends on country. Some colors are amber and some are red and same luminance as the brake light. In the USA and Canada, red would be the case. Amber is dedicated for signal only, whereas red can be clearance, signal, or brake.

    Where is the control to turn them on?

    The pole(?) containing the light switch has an extra ring, to switch both the front and rear fog lights. One tick forward is switch on the fog front light, two ticks is fog rear light. So it's not possible to switch on the rear light without switching on the front light.

    I didn't realize there were both symbols on the fog light switch you mentioned it. Makes sense now.

    What's the A within a circle use for?


    Zero, my 2014 ES Plus gone but not forgotten. We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century
