6.5 - Installing Front Fog Lamps ( )

1. The connectors are behind the bumper on either side. Pop out the connector unplug the male end. Open up the connector, push out the male contacts, remove the resistor that is soldered between the two contacts. Solder a wire to each of the male connectors and reinstall into the housing. The wires should be about a foot long. You can shorten them after you install the lights.

2. Install the lights using the threaded inserts on the underside of the bumper (Not all models have these). You may have to make a pair of brackets, depending upon your lights.

3. Connect the wires. Use red/ orange as hot lead, black as ground.

4. Remove the screw holding the two halves of the light switch instrument panel. There are three tabs that hold the board into the housing. Depress the tabs and drop the board down.

There is a blank dummy panel between the flasher and rear fog lamp. Remove the panel. If you don't have a toggle "cover" for another lamp, and don't use the rear fog light, then pull the rear cover toggle upwards and off the board, move it over to the center spot, and replace the rear spot with the blank. Reinstall the board and cover.

You now have a pair of fog lamps up front that work only with the low beam headlights. They will not light up with the high beams.
newer the car, the less problems you are likely to have inside the bulb fail modules.
