I know on my 2000 XLT I have behind the bumper under the headlights the plugs for the fog lights They are just hanging there......I don't have fogs though...I wonder if I have the connector behind the bezel.

My bezel will be off soon so I can install the new cluster I got...so hopefully I see if I do I will be need Buggman or another bezel guy on here to get me one with the fog light or I will go to a JY here and try to find one...I also saw or here or somewhere else on the internets that they could be taped up on the inside somewhere sorry I can't help more!

If you don't have the OEM plugs behind the bumper, you could use one of my wiring kits to completely bypass the factory wiring.

Sometimes the plug for the fog switch will be behind the bezel, but no wires under the hood.

Sort of... my kits don't have the OEM connectors for the OEM lights, but you can always snip off the OEM connectors on the lights & use some bullet quick connectors to connect any type of light you have.

My kits are both an OEM switch conversion as well as a "regular" fog light install kit with relay & fuse holder.
You can run pretty much any 12v light or 12v accessory using an OEM fog switch.

i will have to do some research, but you can use the factory switch, it requires a relay, and i had to run 2 wires from my relay to the switch

Default Re: Stock fog light wires??

I found this thread on a search and wanted to bring this back alive for a couple questions. I have two groups of wires that are taped to the bottom of my truck not connected to anything where the bumper connects to the frame. Not sure if i have the fog light relay behind my radio bezel like you guys have said, but i was curious as to know what those are? are those the fog light wires just not hooked up to anything? i want to get some fogs but dont want to do to much wiring and was curious as to what those wire clusters are. Thanks

Sorry i dont have time tonight as i have some work i need to finish but i def will get those posted up tomorrow! Its pretty strange seeing these not connected to anything. But they are close enough to the fake fog light "holes" on the valence that they could be hooked up.

ill get those pics tomorrow for ya

They are located directly under the engine bay directly behind the valence about where you would expect fog lights would be if the valence wasnt closed up... sorry i cant be more help. these clusters are looped up and taped with electricians tape to the frame i believe. hope that helps
