SOURCE: Wiring of fog lights on 95 Mustang

If you bought the fog lights from Ford and they plugged into factory plugs at the front bumper, then I suspect you need the headlight switch that came optional for your car. You will need to install a relay into the fuse box. Check for any fuses for that circuit. I did one on a Ford f-150 and the switch came with the lights from Ford.Usually the fog lights are not on until you push a button or turn the switch.

SOURCE: how to factory wire fog lights on a 2000 ford

This is a common problem on 97-00 MY trucks, regardless of the trim level ( XL, XLT, Lariat ).

If you install the fog lamp fuse in the BJB ( aka Battery Junction Box, Engine Compartment fuse panel ) Fuse # 9 ( 15 A fuse ) and jumper the normally open contacts in the fog lamp relay socket ( see diagram below ) the fog lamps should illuminate ( to confirm what you have doing on ).

The problem usually is the main headlamp switch to the BJB is not in place ( this is the yellow wire from the main headlamp switch connector to the relay socket pin #1 ).
One easy route is to make an aux lighting relay & harness, or purchase one online. With this, you can cut the factory ends and attach them to the harness you purchased. There is an air inlet next to where the steering wheel column runs through the firewall. This would give you an easy route to the fog lamp switch. The fog lamp switch, you can buy the factory one, and change the yellow wire from the connector to your added relay, or just add a switch for this function.
This will give you an idea of what the DIY relay and harness would look like.

Hope this helps, more than confuses at this point

SOURCE: head light, fog, and park lights are out. I think

There is a "power distribution box" located in the engine compartment on the drivers side, On top of the wheel well towards the rear off the engine compartment by the brake master cylinder. It's black and there is a cover over top of the fuses and relays in there. Just look at the instructions printed on the cover on how to remove the cover. The fuse I think you are looking for is in the # 16 position. As you look from the top on the inside of the box from the drivers side (The box will be long ways) it will be the 8th one over from the right in the second row. It will be a blue 15 amp fuse. That fuse is the one for your headlamp and foglamp switches. You may have other problems as there is a reason why the fuse would have blown in the first place if the fuse is blown. I hope you understand the location of where it is and I hope this helped and good luck.

Can't get power to foglights on my 2003 Explorer


Power is applied to the fog lamp switch which is a separately controlled part of the main light switch. When the fog lamp switch is turned on, power is applied to the fog lamp relay in the battery junction box which closes to turn on the fog lamps IF 20A FUSE 19 and 15A FUSE 44 in the BJB are OK. Setting the multifunction switch to HI closes the high beam relay in the BJB, removing power from the fog lamps and directing it through 20A FUSE 46 in the BJB to the high beam lamps. In other words, you can have fog lamps or high beam lamps but not both at the same time

the multifunction switch is set to HI, the high beam relay in the battery junction box closes

Location of foglight wiring harness


The Easiest Way is to Get the Wiring Harness Diagram with the Colors and Verify that you plugged the Fog Lights into the Correct Harness. I once had a FORD that had a Fuse BOX that had a FOG LIGHT and No Power to that Fuse.

Make sure you test the Fuse at the Box and then Trace the wires and if the Switch was wired at the Factory, you should be all set

I was just wondering what fuse i would have to change to get my fog lights working, I need to find out if it's a problem with the fuse or the bulb. Thank you!


Hello,
Well there is a fuse for your fog lights. I don't have the make year or model so I can't say where but there is a fuse. More than likely in the under the dash fuse panel. If your having trouble finding the fuse you can still check to see if it is the bulbs. Swap a working bulb with a suspected bad bulb and see if it lights up. If both are out then find that fuse and see if it is blown. Might be your fog light switch too.
Regards, Tony

Check your instructions with the fog lamps, I believe you will need to take your car to a dealer to have them activate the fog lamp driver in the Totally Integrated Power Module.

I wired my fog lights for the power into the fuse box, but they stay on all the time when I turn on the car. I have them wired into my low beams, but I only want them to come on when I turn on my low...


OK, you need to connect a relay to one of the 'power' wires under the hood that leads to the bulb of the low beams. Then, the fog lights will go on only when they are turned on or off.

Otherwise, you could have a relay that is controlled by a switch that independently operates the relay and thus the fog lights.

Both methods are legal in, Pennsylvania, anyway.

Sometimes hooking up the relay to the fuse box will only turn the fog lights on if the ignition switch is turned on for switched fuse box contacts. And, sometimes, hooking the relay to the fuse box will keep the fog lights on all of the time, as the fuse box may be energized at all times at certain contacts.

Good luck on installing your fog lights, correctly.

Half of electrics stopped working but yet the fuses are okay


Time to do a wiggle test of the fuse box wiring. The circuits mentioned are not directly connected , but may travel through common wiring plugs. Try the fuse box fuses again (there may be more than 1 fusebox) Interior light / Radio / Antenna / Clock may be on a battery circuit but not connected to the Fog light not the turn signals other than a connecctor plug or simular.

GM installs wiring harnesses and fuse blocks configured according to the original options for the vehicle. While the fuse block may have a spot for the relay, that doesn't mean the wiring is installed under the block for it, and that presents a problem as contacts in the block are pressed in and wired for specific options, and may be missing for this option in your truck. Even though you may have the fog light wires to connect to the relay and there is a place for the relay in the fuse block, there may not be the necessary relay socket connectors installed and they are almost impossible to retrofit (although you can try if the fog light wires you have also have the correct connector on the ends).

You can check if all necessary relay socket connectors are installed, and if so, you could try to figure out which wire is installed for the connection you are trying to make, and connect the purple wires to that wire. Otherwise, you may have to install the relay away from the block, and then make the necessary wiring connections (power, ground and output) to it.

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.
