Default Strange Switch found. What is this?

My buddy and I found this today, Iíve never seen one like it before. Fog light/rear fog light? Fog light/roll bar lights from an MJ? I donít know which Jeep it really came from, it was sitting on the dash of an 85 waggy.

My guess is European version XJ. I think there is some kind of law in parts over there that vehicles have to have rear fog lights.
Never seen switches for '96 and down type XJ's, but then again all I really pay attention to is '97 and up ones, but on the '97 and
up ones that I have seen the symbols are reversed like that.

The style of switches is the same on my 95 XJ. I'd say front and rear fog lights. To make space for a front fog light switch I'd imagine they were either on manuals so no Power/Comfort switch or no rear demist switch.

Curious, I'm from NJ as well, where / what yard did you find that? I'm always on the lookout for a junkyard with XJ (84-96) parts.

I'm gonna agree with this. I know that Land Rovers come with front and rear fog lights

I have a “wanted” ad requesting a factory foglight switch only. The connector on the rear of the switch would be helpful too. Not the panel, just a single switch.

If anyone has one available, please contact me.

Thank you!

The switch itself looks identical to the comfort/power trans switch. If you don't mind not having the label, you could probably just pop one of those in the hole.

Definitely front and rear fogs. (Front on the left). Rear fogs are required in the EU, fronts are a common option.

Don't you get fog in the USA? 😀
