    Default where to begin

    I have just got myself a vectra late 52 plate so i think its a C. lovely car but a few things i woudl like your input on (this is my first car so sorry if my questions are too newbie)

    1. where are my fog lights?
    2. on the drivers right i have a switch for fog lights, a dial for lights and 2 other dials i think to adjust the brightness of the display and one i think to lower or raise my headlights, none of these dials or switches does anything. should it? or is it an optional extra?? I check the fuse for it F19 and it gets no power!
    3. a link in my wipers snapped and my passanger wiper wont move anymore. is this an expensive repair?
    thanks for ya replies

    thanks for reply. im guessing none of my dials in that section work as nothing happens when i turn or push them. if the wiper thing is common then hopefully its a cheap fix.
    again thanks for reply

    His profile says it's an LS, in which case it won't have front fogs as standard fitment.
