Howard,Connecting cable, long enough, and clamps have been missed out. How??? Start from the light backwards and keep clamping the cable wherever you can.And end up at the switch. Not forgetting the connecting the positive to the battery and earthing the negative. Starting at the battery->switch->->light->earth (on the body).

    As the fog lamps are not so power hungry there may not be any need for relays etc.
    Start from the ignition switch. take a lead from the Accessories portion of the ignition switch. This single lead goes to the switch, wherever it is convenient to you. From the other terminal of the switch the lead goes to the fog lamps connected to each other in parallel. From the other terminal of the lamps the lead is earthed on the body of the car. So your circuit is complete and the lamps light up only when your ignition is on and you switch on the lamps when the need be.

Detailed instructions on front bumper removal. NOTE: From all the videos, it appears the CAB is different than the sedan. An example is the grill does NOT come up with the hood.


Remove wheels. Remove fender liners front. Remove three nuts per side from inside fender wells. Remove fog lamp grilles. Remove vertical bolt just inside grilles--pointing up. Remove two screws per side under hood near front of fender. Put milk crate under front bumper. Remove belly pan first. Slide bumper forward onto milk crate, disconnect headlight washer line at quick disconnect if so equipped. Disconnect fog light connectors. Remove bumper.

Where is the fog light switch located on prius 08


I'm assuming that you have the factory fog lights on a NHW20 (2004-2009) Prius. In the US 2004 Owner's Manual, it is listed in Section 2-4, "Operation of Instruments and Controls,""Lights, Wipers and Defogger,""Front Fog Lights,"

How do you switch on the rear fog lights on a 2004 jeep cherokee uk model . The front fog lights work. Should the rear fogs come on when you switch on the front fogs or is there a seperate switch...


Try and see what happens when you put it in REVERSE? There are many American Vehicles that the light only works when you are in Reverse to see what is behind you

2004 tundra fog lights do not turn on.


Try to wire them straight to 12v to rule out anything with the lights themselves. You've tested with a meter to the leads at the light with them switched on?

Tail lights and fog lights not working have replaced bulbs


Check the fuse, and the fuse relay under the hood, make sure you check all fuse associate to the fog lights and tail lights as there are may be more then one fuse assigned to the lights. For the fog lights there is a switch mounted with your light headlight switch, make sure that is turned on too.

How to replace a front fog lamp


  • If your fog lamp is connected to or behind a grille, pop it out. This can be done by first removing the clips or screws connecting it to the car and gently pulling it out. (If your fog lights are not connected to a grille, proceed to step 2.)Find the bolts that hold the fog lamp in place; you may have to get underneath the automobile to do so.Using your ratchet wrench, remove the bolts.4Grab the connector on the back of the fog lamp, turn it counter-clockwise and pull it out. This should remove the actual light bulb from the lamp fixture.Remove the fog lamp from the car and place the new one in.6Place the light bulb into the new fog light and turn clockwise to lock into place.Bolt the fog lamp back into place, if you had to remove the grille, put it back now and screw/clip it back into place.Turn on the fog lights and make sure everything is working properly

    Have a 2008 nitro just purchased used without fog lights but the fog grates are there on the bumper. Can hubby cut out the grates for the fogs and install them himself? Are there instructions somewhere on...


    They want that much because they have to replace the valance and paint it, the one with fog lights has a special brackets for them, Check to see if there is a nut on the back side of the fog light if there is you can just remove it, the fog lamps cost $110.00 each so thats 220 dollars and they use a special light switch that costs $60.00 thats why it's so much, plus have to wire it in if the Dodge did not come with the lights it may not have the wires for the harness to run the lights. So you will have to run a new relay intothe relay box switch and wires and a fuse to do it, even if you buy the factory lights and add a switch and relay your talking about $300.00

    Fog lights out on 2001 passat.


    The only way a lot of bulbs can burn out at once is overvoltage. Check your charging voltage with the car running, using a multimeter. Should be 13.8 volts; with the car off, about 12.6.
