No no no, find the wire that goes to pin 83B, and then tie the power wire into that one. You'll still want the relay. If you run through the factory wires your fogs will not be able to come on with the hi beams.
well i had the fog light mod installed before they stopped working. so that took care of the fogs/high beams.No no no, find the wire that goes to pin 83B, and then tie the power wire into that one. You'll still want the relay. If you run through the factory wires your fogs will not be able to come on with the hi beams.
Correct me someone if I'm wrong but pin #3 in the fog lamp switch can't be used to power the lights, you need a power source direct from the battery?so could i just repin my headlight switch with the power to the fogs?
my oem wiring is shot.
so just pull out the existing wire and run this one into it. and get rid of the relay all together, since the fog lights will only turn on on the "pull" of the switch?
also, which wire is the ground in the headlight switch?
So if that wire is there, according to the pictures you could just cut the GRN/BLK wire about 3 or 4 inches down from the switch, use a red wire splice and splice in whatever wire you have to run to the relay. Then just tape off the cut end of the GRN/BLK wire and fold it away.this should be no problem. esp with those pics. thanks a bunch.
and there is a green/black wire in pin 3, at least in mine.
Hi what do you call the fender ??Duh I just re-read your question and the part about 83b. I didn't connect to a OEM fog light switch, but I would say you should be able to get a female slip connector to fit on that pin.
You can either...
go through the fire wall, which there are holes already there to slide the one wire through.
or go behind the fender and through the plastic plug in the door jamb.
how did you get the grill like that?Okay, 20 years later and today was the first free day in awhile to wire up these badboys.
A quick addition to the how-to:
If you want to wire up a factory fog light switch, you will want to tap your fog light power into pin 83b. This will be the wire coming from pin 86 on the fog light relay. I tested each lead with a volt meter while turning the fog switch on and off. 83b was the only one that gave power when the fog light switch was pulled.
and....finally! I used cheap ebay fog-light houses. The old ones I got from a junk yard were yellowing beyond repair. These are nice and crystal clear, I also covered them in 3M clear bra material.
Camera makes it look like 14k HID's, but they're just the cheapest bulbs I could find.
Check out the thread linked below for installing "factory" fog lights in a 2005 - 2007 Focus, almost everything you should need is in the thread. There are also other threads that reference that one. Use the search function to find out more.sorry to revive an old thread, I recently bought a 2006 ZX3 SE which sadly has no pre existing wiring harness bummer! but anyways, I am a beginner at all the wiring and relay and all the electrical stuff but it seems pretty straight forward. only problem is it's an old thread and some of the pics I can't see or find >.< been wanting to add fogs since I got it. anyone able to help me out? want to use oem fogs & an oem headlight/fog switch. and also would any of the wiring or switched off an older model still fit the same? any and all help would be great!
