Hi,
you could just run a possitive wire from the back of your high beams straight to your fog lights then earth the fog lights stright to the car. this will work just make shure you disconnect your battery before playing with the wire's. if your not sure what you are doing i would recommend you take it to an authurised electrican. as for the high and low, same system but i would say it probably would over load the fuse creating more work for you.

Have a dirt bike with headlight. Three wires for hi/lo, how do I put two fog lights in place of that head light without too much wiring work. I don't need hi/lo option


one wire will for high beam
one wire will be for low beam
the last wire will be ground wire
as fog light have only one beam you can use the low beam wire and parallel wire it to the fog lights
that way you have the head lights still and the fog lights as accessories correctly wired according to regulations
how to do it simply-- find the low beam power wire ( light switch on low beam and power at the light bulb check ed with a multi meter set on volts
solder , piggy back, or double plug in a connection into that wire and run one wire to the left fog light and one to the right fog light connect each fog light to an individual ground wire and connect those wires back to the ground wire for the main lights
Now having done that simple addition to the lighting system another problem has come up
The wiring will now be too light to carry fog light current and or the light switch will burn out
To over come this problem, the circuit needs a relay
fit a relay on the bike and now run the low beam wire to a terminal of the relay
run the other terminal wire to ground
this enables the relay to operate when the low beam is switched on but at this will not switch on the lights yet
now you have to run a heavy gauge wire (fused at the battery) to one of the power terminals of the relay and from the other power terminal to the connection for the fog and low beam lights
Now it all works switch on the high beam and no for lights
change to low beam and the fog lights come on as well
All nice and legal
Of course if you don't care about being legal just buy a 30 amp toggle switch and run a fused wire directly to the switch from the battery to the lights and then to ground from the lights
You will know that the generator / alternator for the bike will not be able to run the fog lights with or without the main lights so what will you have achieved

High Beams and Fog Lights on 2004 Pontiac Grand Am do not work


You can not have High Beams on and FOG LIGHTS at the same time. The Body Control Module controls this. You may have a bad Body control Module

High beam indicator comes on with fog lights


Could your Mazda have daytime running lights? If you checked all fuses, did that include the three in the joint box?

There is an auto light-off control module that is central to all functions you describe. It is assumed that you would only turn on the fog lights with headlights on and set for high beam. If you set the headlight switch to LOW, the module closes the headlight relay to turn on the low beams. If you then turn the headlight switch to HIGH, the module turns on the high beams and allows you to turn on the FOG LIGHT switch, closing the fog light relay and turning on the fog lights. Since this sequence is not working, I suggest checking both high beam lamps as both could be burned out. Other possibilities are a defective headlight switch or the module

HID will not funtion hooked up right. They won't light. Everthing works as it should hit hi beams fog lights go out hi beam light comes on inside on dash. Its easy hookup maybe missing something? This is a...


yeah, shouldn't be that difficult. red-power, black-ground. unplug them then put everything back to normal, then try them to see if the originals(low beams, high beams, fog lights) work ok. if they do it's in the wiring. turn on your low beams and that's the wires that you need. just find the one that sends 12volts to the low beams and hook it up to red on HID's then hook the black(ground) from HID to chasis, not the ground wire from car and check to see if they work.

High beams wont turn on.


First place to start is with headlight switch. I did have a case many years ago when both high beams were blown out at once, but this is rare. When you have the headlight switch out, jump power from te low beams to the high beam contacts. If high beams come on, replace switch.
