I can’t turn the switch to turn the fog lights on.
When I go to turn on the fog lights using the headlight switch… it won’t go into the switch position detent. Of course it says “pull”, so I pull, but the switch feels like it’s going to pull off, so I back off. My instinct says I need to pull a bit and turn to the left a bit to get the dial to go to the fog light position. Whatever the case, I haven’t figured it out yet.
I’ll figure it out. Like with everything cars/electronics/software, I just need to noodle with it until I “get it”.
In other news, my Alltrack cracked 33 MPG today driving from Castle Rock, Colorado, to Denver. I drove mostly with a light right foot, keeping her in 6th gear. I’ve found rain or snow are good for a 1-2 MPG penalty on any highway driving. And today it’s been snowing, causing visibility and wet roads, but no snow accumulation on the roads.
I like the friendly temperature reminder/warning that appears on the instrument cluster screen about 2 minutes after starting the Alltrack. There’s an audible tone that accompanies this.
It looks like these happen under 40° fahrenheit. I got one that said 38° and the other said it was 33°. That’s good information presented simply. My 1997 Volvo 850 would illuminate a small orange light next to a snowflake graphic on the instrument cluster that stayed illuminated for the entire drive, as long as the temperature was roughly 28-38°, which was not quite annoying, but close.
