Lightbulb Low light questions

Is it normal for the "low light" led to light up when I turn on my lights for driving at night? If I start with and keep my brights on the led does not light up. Should this be happening or is there something that I should be checking out?

Sorry if this is nonsensical...

There is no indicator for the low beam but there is one for the fog lights (green one). Try switching off the fog lights and see if the indicator goes off.

Does any one know the power or wattage of the stock fog lights, I may have to get some.

Just go to Ebay and find them used or go to mye28.com and look them up in the FS section. My car also came without them when I bought it so I just got them used. Get the factory ones and they will be a direct bolt-on.
