Lost interior/fog/rear running lights

I turn on the lights in the 164 this evening and the dash/interior lights didn't light up. I did a quick fuse check and nothing seemed to be blown.
Later that evening i found out my fog lights, rear fog lights, and rear running lights do not work, but my brake lights and blinkers work fine. I cant find a blown fuse

I'm still guessing its a blown fuse, but what fuse controls fog/interior/rear running lights?
Thanks in advance.

Do your high beams work? If not then you have lost red wire power (hot at all times) from G56 terminal to G1 fuse box connector N pins 1 and 2.

This affects all that you listed. See pages 228 and 414 in wiring manual.

The high beams work fine, but just in case i checked the wire i think you are talking about and its connected.

Just a hunch, but what do the relays/fuses between the battery and left rear fender control?

On S suspension relay, rear window defroster relay and rear seat relay if split seats are behind battery. Also radio antenna relay. Fuses for rear window defroster, antitheft, rear seat movement and suspension on S.

Check 7.5A fuse F11 top row second from right with key on for 12v. It feeds N41 lamp control unit under glove box.

similar problem

I had a very similar problem on my '95 164Q. I did have a blown fuse, and it turned out I head wiring behind the passenger side headlight that was rubbing on the alternator pulley and shorting.

Good luck!
