Hey guys!

Great tutorial MasterAK, I ordered a set of fog lights from Ebay and started this, but I soon found out that my wiring is a bit different.

The fog lights only have power and ground cables. the relay, fuse and signal wires are in the switch harness, pictured here:



The red wire with the white plug goes connected to the fog lights. So I assume it is the power line.

I have a white wire coming out of the fuse, and also a green wire, they both have a red housing to splice against other wires. I'm unsure where both these wires go to.

Can anyone help shed some light? Thank you!

My first set of fogs I ordered on Amazon came with a weird harness like yours. Harness was weird looking and required some work to make it work (power cable location was weird and it was short). I would send those back and purchase a different set with a normal connectors.

I decided to experiment and was able to get them working.

Green cable = LED lighting for the switch
White cable = Power

The lights would not turn on if both weren't connected to the power line, so I used a vampire splitter to have them both connected, and put them into the fusebox. Lights work great

Fuse Boxes

After doing this step by step, quick recommendation. Don't use the iginition fuse as written. You will have power to the headlamps at all times even without key in ignition because the ignition fuse is always hot. Use the power mirror fuse (the 10A one shown in the picture actually) that will only get power when key is in position 1 or 2

Hi, I'm new here, I bought a fog lights kit and then I found this post which is excellent by the way I'm looking for a way to wire this kit to turn on dash indicator as OEM fog lights do, actually I couldn't find it and I want to know if any of you could help me with that?

I doubt aftermarket fogs will work with dashboard indicator light just because it's installed in not factory fashion I also noticed that newer Lancers come with fog light switch right on your steering wheel and my 2009 model has a button

Oh I see, thanks for your reply actually you're right, newer "ES" models have OEM fog lights but mine same as yours doesn't have any fog light installation that's why I decided to install it manually. However I think there could be a way to attach the signal from the switch to the indicator, may be there is a relay which has that function but is disconnected.

I'm looking for a way to synchronize the indicator because the switch light is always on, but if I wont find the way, it'll be easier to modify the switch light by the way if I find the way I'll post it here

Indeed Great tutorial MasterAK, if I could make one recommendation, For Step 11 on page 1, instead of jamming a fuse over the wire which could cause shorts or sparks, use a Add-A-Circuit Mini Fuse tap, I got mine off eBay for $5.99 with fuses and it works like a charm with a piece of mind.
