Interesting, I wonder if you have the switch to turn the fog lights on to right of the headlight switch. Also you may want to remove the fuse under the hood for the foglights, as they might be shorting if it says they are on. I am not sure this is one of those odd, symptons. If it makes you feel any better I do have fog lights, and even when they are on, the indicator doesn't come on. Although I think the bulb in the dash is just burnt out.

You sure it's not your High Beam indicator?
E36 do not have fog light indicators in the dash guage area?
is the indicator light blue?

Check your manual, it will tell you exactally what fuse it is. I would try to explain where it is but that would probabally just confuse the hell outta you!
