It is that one REALLY bright red light on
the left side, in the inner lamp cluster on the hatch/trunk.
You can turn it on during low visibility like severe rain
snow or fog, and it helps other drivers see you from a distance,
especially useful on the highway when many travel at high
speeds regardless of visibility. It can prevent someone from
coming upon you from behind too suddenly and then being surprised
and trying to slow down in a panic, as they will see you much
easier and from further away.
Why is there only one? I am under the impression
that it is so people do not mistake it for brake lights. Although
these rear fogs aka"European fogs" are much brighter
than brake lights some drivers following you may not know
the difference. Also it may be illegal
in your area. That is why I say do this modification at your
I added a bulb to the inner lamp cluster
on the right hand side. Now I can be VERY visible in bad weather.
The two lights are actually almost obnoxious, they are that
bright... So often they can serve another purpose and help
keep tailgaitors at bay. Either because when turning them
on suddenly they can be mistake them for brake lights, or
they are just too bright to follow closely behind.
