Insatlling/wiring PIAA 516 fog-lights on Subaru Legacy

Hi, I'm about to purchase/install a pair of PIAA 5161 fog-lights on my 98 Subaru Legacy L... Was wondering about the wiring... I am a bicycle mechanic by trade, so I am handy enough with wrenches, nuts and bolts and stuff, but I am not very experienced with electrical wiring. Should I just pay my auto mechanic to do it? It seems simple enough from what I can tell, but I haven't necessarily found a good resource/diagrams/website or whatever to show exactly what will be involved. I want to install the lights separate from the existing, factory head/fog lights, with an independent switch, assuming this is possible. Any thoughts, tips or help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Do you hear a 'click' when the key is turned to start? Have someone try the key while you listen under the hood. It should be the starter solenoid clicking. You need either a test light or voltmeter to test further. One large terminal on the solenoid has the large wire from the battery positive, and should always show voltage/light at all times. Test the other side of the solenoid (large terminal) that is connected to the terminal on the starter motor. It should show light/voltage when the key is turned. If it doesn't, the solenoid must be replaced. If it does show light/voltage, then the starter motor is defective (probably brushes). If you get no click when turning the key, test the small terminal on the solenoid, you should see a voltage/light change when the key is turned. If you see a change, but no click, the solenoid coil is open or the case of the solenoid is not grounding where it is mounted. Try loosening the mounting and re-tighten. If no help, replace the solenoid. If you see no change at the small terminal, remove the wire from it and using a spare piece of wire, touch the small terminal to, first, the large terminal that the battery is connected to, then to the the mounting bolt for the solenoid. If the solenoid is good, the starter should operate with one of these two tests. In that case, the starter position of key switch is open--replace the ignition switch.

hi when you purchased these they should have come with a wiring kit supplied, if not then you will have to go to ford and ask them for the wiring kit for them, on most replacement fog lights not ford made come complete with wiring included...hope this helps

Check engine light


Check up under the steering column possibly way up under there and may be taped up. There will be some black connectors as well. They come as pairs and they are colored terminals... not the wires themselves.
