How do you have your fog lights wired up? OEM or aftermarket?

Should i wire them to a switch or to the parking lights or to the headlights?

or to a switch then the parking lights so i can turn them off or on but only when the parking lights are on?

I would probably see if there is a place in your existing fuse box for fogs and tap into that...if that does not work then wire them into your parking lights and make sure to wire it up right....

wire them to your parking lights with a relay and a switch so when the parking lights are on the fogs come on but you can still turn them off.

yeah, i was thinking a 30A relay...

you think a diagram like this



where it says supply would be from my parking lights (yes i know not to wire it from the blinkers, but the parking lights specifically) Is the 3A fuse there correct? and is the 20/25A from the battery to the relay correct? Is there anything wrong with this setup?

I will only be able to turn them on if the parking lights are on though?... i think i just might wire them from the battery.... so i dont think they would need a fuse.

ya keep the fuses as they are and you look like you're all set with that diagram if you are in fact gonna go from the battery....

now if i'm not wiring them from the parking lights then i don't need a relay... correct? just connect the middle wire from the switch to the fog lights?

wired it up pretty easily... hardest part was putting the bumper back on....

they work like a charm, but are pointed a little too high... i need to readjust.
