Default Re: Fog light converion help PLEASE!

okay i went to the yard and got the valance/bumper it has the fog lights, but one of the lens is damaged, also a rock chip but that is no big deal. i need to call and go back to the yard due to them not giving my the brackets. the guy said he would include them when i called about the setup, but when i got home and looked it, noticed no brakcets. anyway....it's coming along, have to check the fog light connectors i got too, but like i said it's a work in progress. as long as i get it done and installed ill be good, and wiring can be done later.

for prep for i have to sand it down smooth correct and then shoot it with primer correct?

You can't sand plastic.. It gets "fuzzy" so what you have to do is prep is by cleaning int really well with a paint thinner or medium base thinner, then layering up the plastic with plastic filler primer and light sanding between each coat til smooth... Then shoot it with paint, then clear.

to be completely honest, I think they look like shit, but that's just my opinion.. Nothing looks better with stuff like this than OEM.

The distribution boxes are different between 4 and 6 cylinder and the 4 like yours was never fitted with foglamps from the factory. You would need to add wiring and a relay or two, all external to the distribution box and the existing harness. Here's a generic diagram for adding aux lights using the factory switch and one Bosch-pattern "automotive" relay. It would work equally well for adding foglamps.




The factory switch works by grounding the foglamp relay coil.

Color codes:

pin 1 unused
pin 2 unused
pin 3 LB/BK from relay coil to switch contacts
pin 4 BK chassis ground
pin 5 LB/RD Night illumination power
pin 6 TN/OR Hot from foglamp power wire for "ON" LED

ok so i have the pigtail from the front end i got from the junk yard, is this what i need, i also have a few from an explorer also, only differance is the ranger one has a connector. can i use eaither one for the wireing? here is the pig of the ranger one.



the explorer's dont have the clip at the socket that goes into the light itself and it dose not have the thing at the other end either. it's just the socket that goes into the foglight and two wires(black and orange).

I was reading through all the posts about adding factory fog lights with factory switch and this was the most informative. However I have a couple questions if its alright. I have a 2001 explorer sport, I guess similar to the ranger. I am trying to add factory fogs. I have looked at the factory diagrams and I think I got it figured out, but I'm not totally sure. I want to wire them to operate with the low beams but shut off with high beams while still using the factory fog switch. Also I know the factory wiring for the switch is there behind the radio bezel, but it doesn't go out under the hood I've already checked. You said something about running the tn/org, and lb/blk wire through the firewall, does this mean the ground to the factory switch is already grounded in the harness, and the rd/blk illumination wire already wired in also.
