I am installing a set of PIAA fog lamps on my 99 Wrangler. The car is pre-wired for Fog Lamps. I have ordered the Switch (Standard DS1082) that fits in the unused spot next to the Rear Wiper and Defroster switches for the Hard Top. There is already a plug set up in the jeep that will fit the Fog Lamp switch. Now I need to find out where are the wires that I can hook up the fog lamps. I am assuming that they are already run into the engine compartment on the engine side of the firewall. Does this make sense? Where can I find the wires? U can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. THANX 4 THE HELP!!!

If this vehicle came prewired, and all you had to do was plug in the fog lamps, then 50A fuse 7 in the power distribution center would be hot at all times, applying power to 15A fuse 24 and the fog lamp relay. Setting the left multifunction switch to FOG causes the body control module to close the fog lamp relay and turn on the fog lamps. It is possible your Jeep came prewired but without the fuses and relay so a dealer could install them to make your fog lamps work. You can check whether the fuses are in the box and OK and whether the fog lamp is installed or just an empty socket. Once everything has been checked and any missing parts installed, your fog lights should work.
You have a short to ground somewhere in the drl-fog lamp circuit. Check for obvious wiring connector or wiring to drl & fog lamps. check wiring for pinched or broken wires coming from sockets. If you don't find problem, you can trace wiring from lamps to main harnesses and hopefully find source of short.
hope this helps.
i dont think current wiring harness is set up for fog lights but fuse box should have a spot for relay and fuse (although it may or may not have metal leads installed) if your getting parts from ford i ask them if they have wiriring harness for it
if you decide to wire them in yourself i would HIGHLY recomend u put a relay in the system if you dont you will have to use bigger wire tho the whole sytem. with a relay u only have use the bigger wire from relay to lights. You will also have to use a heavy duty switch u will burn up factory switch if dont use a realy
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
Fig. 1: Exploded view of a fog lamp assembly
Remove the lamp stone shields, the four bezel attaching screws, and the bezel.
Remove the reflector assembly from the lamp body.
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.
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
Position the vehicle on a level surface, facing a wall
approximately 25 feet away. Remove the lamp stone shields and loosen
the adjustment nuts.
Turn the fog lamps ON and adjust as follows:
Distance between the light beam centers should be equal to the distance between the lamp assemblies on the bumper.
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.
Install all previously removed items after turning OFF the fog lamps.
