If it's a lighted switch, you should have 3 terminal connections on it. One for the "ignition on" wire (from your fuse box). One going to the fog lights to turn them on when you flip the switch and one ground for the switch light to work. If your switch doesn't light, you should only have 2 terminal connections (no ground).

Find an "ignition on" plug on your fuse panel. It is only hot when you turn your ignition to the on position (not crank position). With your keys out, it should not have any power to it. Hook your "hot" wire from fuse panel to switch, take your keys out of the ignition first to be safe. Now hook the other wire from the switch to the "hot" on your fog lights. You will have to find a pass through rubber grommet on your firewall to go through. Use a clothes hanger to help fish it through. Now ground your fog lights to a grounding screw somewhere in the engine bay. There should be a few you can use, possibly one of the bolts that hold the front shroud on. Make sure it's a metal surface and use sandpaper to scrape off paint to get a metal to metal contact. Cover area with petrolium jelly to ward off rust. If your switch is lighted, hook to ground wire on fuse panel. Test with ignition on. If it doesn't come on, check your grounds again.

Dimmer switch


you could always add a good pair of aftermarket fog lights that come with a relay kit and switch you mount to the dash .The only thing is by most laws you cannot run high beams w/aftermarket fog lights on at the same time only low beam ,they have to be manually turned off for oncoming traffic.You can get a good set for around $65.00.These kits come with easy instructions.

Trying to install fog lights. instructions say to run lead to positive side of fuse box. How can I tell what side this is? Nothing on box indicates.


Everything in the fuse box is positive--they are not explaining it right. What I think they mean is to connect to the hot side, as opposed to the fused side. You can connect to any terminal there that has voltage. Do they have a fuse in their kit? I assume they give you a switch too? There should be a fuse somewhere to keep the wires from melting in case of a short.

I bought a 96 jeep cherokee sport & the interior lights only come on for the front passenger door. the three other doors & the hatch dont turn on the interior lights & i cant find any fuse box...


Can you turn on the lights with the Interior light switch?. If a light works, obviously the fuse is good. You will need a wiring diagram and a test light to figure out where to start.

Installing a trailer brake controller and need to tap the brake light wire. This is the wire that shows 12 only when the pedal is pressed. What color is the wire on an '05 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd? I could...


Don't bother with a schematic...they all differ. Use a simple test light and just probe the rear light harness with everything turned off except for the brake lights, only one wire should show power. You can also check the color of the wire coming directly out of the bulb socket. I own a jeep, can read and draw wiring diagrams and have yet to find a diagram that has the same color coding as my vehicle.

Need a fuse box diagram to wire in fog lights


Fog lamps are installed on the front bumper. The switch is located to the left of the steering column on the dash panel. The fog lamps are turned off by the circuit relay when the high beam driving lamps are turned on. The circuit relay is located on the right front wheelhouse panel near the blower motor.

Good luck, and remember rated this help.
Removal & InstallationFog Lamp Element
See Figure 1
558610d.gif
Fig. 1: Exploded view of a fog lamp assembly

  1. Remove the lamp stone shields, the four bezel attaching screws, and the bezel.
  2. Remove the reflector assembly from the lamp body.
  3. Remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Remove the element from the bulb.

DO NOT handle elements with your bare hands, always handle with a clean cloth. Oil from your hands will cause the element to fail.
  1. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Fog Lamp Switch
The fog lamp switch is removed and installed by simply prying the switch from the instrument panel and unplugging the electrical connector.
FOGLAMP BEAM ADJUSTMENT

  1. Position the vehicle on a level surface, facing a wall approximately 25 feet away. Remove the lamp stone shields and loosen the adjustment nuts.
  2. Turn the fog lamps ON and adjust as follows:
    1. Distance between the light beam centers should be equal to the distance between the lamp assemblies on the bumper.
    2. Height of the light beams on the wall should be 4 inches less than the center of the lamp assemblies when mounted on the bumper.
  3. Install all previously removed items after turning OFF the fog lamps.

Where is the fuse for the fog lights on a 1998 jeep grand cherokke limited edition? Is there a fog relay also if so where is that at?


If the fuse blows when the switch is off the switch is bad too. If thefuses only blows when the switch is turned on you have a short in thewiring or bulb.

So first, I would removeboth driving bulbs from their sockets and see if there is corrosion.Fix that problem if there is corrosion.

Then install a fuse without the bulbs and see if the fuse blows. If youhave a test light you can bridge the fuse panel without putting a fusein. If there is a connection you have a hot wire grounding. If there isno problem install one light, fuse or bridge the fuse holder and see if1 light works. Try each side. This way you can isolate the problem.Then visibly inspect wiring.

Review this information:

Good luck, and remember ratde this help.

98 Jeep Cherokee Fog lights


It's definitely the switch...I bought two of 'em so far...known bug. I don't use the fog lights as much anymore , but the "Airtex" oem equivalent switch from Rockauto seems to be holding up well. If you dissamble your broke switch you'll probably see evidence that it is beginning to melt and theres alot, maybe too much, grease, which may or may not have been the cause of the bad, heating contacts inside switch.
If I remember right, even though the foglights have a relay there is still full amperage going through the switch or something....don't qoute me on that last statement.
