If you want make sure it is or is not the bulbs you can disconnect the bulb and check the terminals at the connector with a test light to see if the bulb is getting 12 volts.

    you will need to check the fuse/relay box under hood.you may find seperate fuses and/or relays for low beam lights.try this.

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

My day time running lights are work as do my high beams, however my low beams do not, but i thought they were all the same bulb? Also, now by fog lights won't come on -only work when low beams work


Your fogs only working when low beams are on is normal, as far as your low beam lights not working, I would have the headlight switch checked, or check for a bad fuse or possibly a relay if your car has a light relay. Some do and some don't, I am not that familiar with your model of car to tell you for sure.

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

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.

I want to use fog lights with high beams


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.
