Electrics really arent my thing
Ah yes. I remember the loose HT lead on the way back to the ferry in France last May!!

Not that I can talk. I wondered why the fog lights on my BX weren't working - didn't realise that they didn't work on sidelights! Odd because they do on every other car I've ever owned...

That HT lead was quite possibly the most annoying breakdown ever!!

Funnily enough they caused 2 more breakdowns until i replaced them! For some strange reason that one lead kept popping off the plug!

I think the purpose of the foglight cutout system is for the benefit of caravan and similar light couloured full bodied trailers. I suppose that a bright red light would reflect off the front of the caravan in the dark especially and could distract the driver. - switch them off - problem solved. Also sounds good in brochures and would reduce the electrical load a bit which could be handy at times.
