Fog light problems

2008 Wrangler Sahara jk fog lights won't go on.....checked ground and it seemed to have continuity, when I pull the multi-switch on steering column, power is getting to the fog light bulb sockers, but I only am getting about 7 volts power to the fog lights instead of 12 volts. Used a volt meter to determing that. Installed new bulbs and that didn't do anything....totally puzzled as what trouble shooting to do next.......any help appreciated...thanks

Sounds like you have corrosion somewhere, did you get a consistent 7V?
