      No fog lights?

      I thought fog lights were standard on the v70? (2007) is there any way I could add them?

      I had this issue with my S60 so i gathered switch and lights from donor car used the pre-wire that existed and no joy.
      Is this a dealer option that needs to be turned on with a VALID subscription of VIDA?

      Can be used to add pods, or use the wiring to power factory fogs. The kit is plug and play.

      Fog lights were not standard equipment, even in 07. I believe they were part of the climate package?

      It "may" be possible to hijack/re wire the factory switch module for fogs, otherwise finding a location for a fog switch might not look so good.

      i should have included this in the original post: i have the fogs button in the cabin (on the left of the steering wheel, not on the HU).. it lights up when pressed, then stops when i press it again... but no fogs. i'll be checking for prewiring tomorrow

      Even with no front fogs, we get a rear fog for safety.

      Turn it on and the driver side rear tail light should get brighter
      (and an icon should light up on the dash I think)

      Possibly the car was in an accident in the past and replacement bumper cover was installed without the fogs? Try putting the fogs in and see if they work. Otherwise have to visit the dealer to have them activated.
