Left side, below the trunk lid release switch.
Document ID# 360971, 1998 Pontiac Bonneville, Fog Lights Circuit Description
When the park lights are activated, battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied to the foglamp switch through CKT 9 (BRN). Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied at all times to the switch side of the fog lamps relay position A in the RH IP fuse block through the IP fuse block FOG LPS fuse and CKT 1440 (ORN). With the foglamp switch in the ON position, battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied to the coil of the fog lamps relay position A through CKT 317 (YEL). The coil receives ground from the lamp control module (LCM). With the fog lamps relay position A coil energized, the coil contacts close, supplying battery positive voltage (B+) to the fog lamps. Turning on the high beam headlights produces the following effects:
The LCM removes the ground from the fog lamps relay position A.
The fog lamps turn OFF

96 Bonneville. SOunds just like a problem i am having. Car stalls out and stops running while driving, and the windows wont roll up or down. Car will crank over but not start for a while. After a few minutes or 20 minutes car will magically start up and go for a while and windows will work. IT has thrown me through a loop. Thinking it must be a short somewhere. Took it to a shop, they are tellin me it is the fuel pump, but can that account for the windows not working as well??? What did you do to fix yours? Also my climate control flashes and blows cold air in winter and extremely hot air in summertime, sometimes it will work great, but mostly not. This is accompanied by a "burping" and "growling" sound from what sounds like behind the glove compartment. ANy ideas what so ever?? Thanks

Thanks guys, i got my car running and windows working. The shop i had it at didnt even know what was wrong. I had to tell them. Saved a lot of money and a new fuel pump i didnt need. Does anyone have an idea about the climate control in the original post.

Must not have a 1997 (since you thought it was a 1997 or 1998), in my uncle's 1997 owners manual looked up "fog lamps" in the index and on page 2-45 there was a listing and picture of the switch which is still on the overhead panel with the interior reading lamps ( same location as my 1992).

You are right; I said it was a 97 or 98. It is a 98. Does that make any difference???
#1477 of 2268 Re: Oil Pressure Indication [desertrat5]
Apr 07, 2005 (7:16 pm)
The crazy oil pressure readings from the DIC are due to a failed oil pressure sending unit. I have a 2004 Lesabre Limited that, without warning, started showing psychotic oil pressure numbers; they'd race high, then low, then high, all the while causing the dash warnings to ping and wail. Bottom line was that actual engine oil pressure was fine. The dealer replaced the sending unit with no question or problem, and the problem was solved.
