ok i was wondering if someone can help settle this little debate me and 2 friends have going i have a 71 z and was told it had the factory foglight option on it and my friend has a 72 240z with the factory foglight option .now the debate is in the switches he has a switch that is next to his leg on the side of the console and it is a 2 way switch just on off for the fog lights and on the dash where the flasher switch is there is a switch above the flasher that has a triangle on it that works his anteanna.
now on mine i have the flasher switch then above that is the same switch that he has with the triangle but mine is a 2 way switch that works the foglights and down by my leg on the side is a switch with jap writing and then in english says antenna and it is a 3 way switch up down and neutral so who has the right set up

I don't know if this will help but I bought a Gnose and other parts off a guy who imported his Z from Japan years ago. He gave a a fuse box cover ( the part that is the dash on the center console) and it had two fog light switches in it. This was obviously factory, but may have been a Japp only option.

I had posted on this topic earlier, you might search the archives for my name as author.

What I got informed of was that there were actually TWO sets of what we would probably misname as fog light switches. One ON the dash, just above the hazard switch was for the actual FOG lights, the one to the right of the Rear Window Defrost was for the Running lights, (Parking Lights) and that they had both a right and left switch because that way when you parked the car you could keep the side towards traffic lit. That's why that switch from Japan would have two switches, not for the FOG lamps but for the Parking Lights.

FWIW
