Wiring for front fog lights on 1996 fiesta 16v

Hi, I have been trying to find the connections for some standard fiesta fog lights to connect to. i have been told that it should be just a case of locating them and then plugging them in, but i cant find them anywhere? i bought the dashboard switch and plugged it in and it seemed to work so the wiring must be there somewhere. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Many Thanks.

No it will not have the connectors to the lights, but it will have a connector where the fog light sub harness would connect. You should be able to buy the entire kit at the dealer, it will come with fitting instructions and wiring diagrams.

Wiring for Bosch Hologen Fog Lights? Wiring harness has 5 wires from relay, Red to battery, 2 Black - 1 to each light?, 1 Yellow to?, 1 Blue to?, & where do the xtra Black and Green wires go to? These...


Look on the relay for the terminal numbers.
Terminal 30 goes to the battery positive.Red Wire
The two terminal 87 go to the fog lights.Black Wires
Match the color wire with what you have on the relay connection for the rest of the wires.
Terminal 86 should connect to your low beam headlight.
Terminal 85 should go to the fog light switch.
The fog light switch should connect to the terminal 85 and the other terminal on the switch will connect to ground.

1996 jeep cherokee sport. I am trying to install a fog light kit. one switch, 2 fog lights. Need color wiring diagram or how to instructions. kit directions are terrible


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.
