I bought some OEM style fog lights for my 2006 accord. Well the wires from the switch end has two free hanging wires with clips, like they are supposed to clip into the vehicle somewhere. I can not find where they go I searched under the dash for about an hour and came up with nothing. One wire is white with a brown clip and the other is a red wire with a grey clip. is one positive and the other negative? I just don't get it, it is a simple project gone wrong. please help.

Re: Wiring harness for fog lights?
Just contact your local dealer and ask them for instructions for the OEM fog lamps. I have ordered Honda fog lamps, and you can usually find a pdf document on line with detailed instructions. The nice thing about Honda accessories, is the harnesses will only plug in one way. Hope this helps

i wired my front fog lights on my escort van using the rear fog lamp switch u change the actual switch to the double switch(front an rear fog switch) if you buy this off a scrap car you cut the wiring and connect rear fog plug to bottom of switch and connect front fog wiring to the top plug.
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
This is the diagram for the fog lamps ( headlamp is a different cell ). If you are trying to add them to the existing wiring, do not expect the headlamp switch to cab fuse panel wiring to be there ( that is usually what is missing when you can find the fog lamp connectors under the front of the truck ).
File Save as so you can magnify it with the JPEG viewer you use.
OK, you will need to first check the fog light wiring harness. make sure there are no worn wire lines or connections, replace if you see noticeable flaws in the wiring harness. Next, check the clip that fits over the back side of the fog light bulbs. Make sure that the inside copper pins are in good condition and, the the fit is tight. replace the wiring harness if these clips are worn or not fitting properly.
If the above inspections show no apparent wiring harness issues, you will then need to check for bulb failure. make sure that your fog light bulbs are operational. if the bulbs are ok, replace the switch.
You will need to completely wire your own setup. The "stock" fog lights on the HHRs are wired through the Body Control Module computer which can not be reprogrammed without being replaced. Cost of the computer is over $300 and certainly NOT worth it for a set of fog lights. Put in your own switch, wiring, etc. I would highly recommend that you use a relay to power them since the electrical system for the HHR is very sensitive to external additions.
You don't need to touch your harness for the fog lights as its a major harness and is connected to many other things. You need to pop out the light switch opn the dash. it pops out and in the back of it you disconnect it. It has a conector on it. Buy a new switch at dealer, aprox $90 canadian and snap it back on. I know my fog light switch went last year. I have same the same car.
