Spooky fog lights

When lights are turned on fog lights come on independently and turn on and off from side to side...any thoughts? Will return to main dealer eventually taking bulbs out tomorrow as a quick fix

The 500L certainly has that feature on certain models (possibly all that have fog lights).

Re: Spooky fog lights

Yep, it'll be the cornering lights. Should come on when cornering or turning the wheels when stationary.

If you don't want them on, you can disable them in the menu by using the buttons below the stereo and scrolling through till you find 'Cornering Lights' and select 'Off'.

I take it you haven't read the manual?

Will do it when indicating when stationary also and is normal.

Even on the Fatherhood video as he comes out of the drive

Thanks for locating that vid. I knew I'd seen a video somewhere that showed them working but couldn't recall where it was.

Re: Spooky fog lights

Why do people start messing about with their cars before they even know how they are supposed to work properly - I just don't get this one?

I knew more about my 500 than the salesman when I went to pick it up In fact before I ordered the car in the first place

It pays to do your research

Re: Spooky fog lights

If that means lights coming on and off,then having wife complain about it on top of everything else, then yes!

In addition the car is the popstar launch edition was familiar with all the extras that it had fitted...ones even the salesman didn't know about but was unaware of this particular feature. Normally I know my cars inside out as now on number 14 from the fiat, lancia, alfa stable since 1998, perhaps more importantly saved 5k over list for 5 month old car.
