I was looking at OEM foglight switches for other cars.

The one for the Mazda Miata looked like a great one. Had a little fog light symbol even. Just have to find a Miata to see how it would look. lol

I know this is semi-off topic, but how easy is it to change the bulbs on the fog lights? Is it easier if you remove the entire assembly or can you access the bulbs without removing them?

You would need to take out the phillips headed push pins from the fender liners and bumper meeting point then bend the fender liner down to reach up into the back of the fog light to get to the bulb.

Or take off the bumper.

Dang, that sounds like a huge pain. Hopefully my friend will be able to help me.

What is happening here?

So I'm pretty nub at this and I have no idea what the fuse box does. If I use the positive lead on the fuse box how will it know what to turn on?


and where are the wires for the foglights in this picture??
also, I wanted to use a switch to turn the foglights on as well and in this picture:

is the battery literally the battery in the car? also what is a fuse holder?? and in the fuse box where am I connecting that wire to? the positive lead? Nothing is making much sense right now... and for some extra.. how is the fuse box protecting the car in any way in that picture? seems like its just hooked up to the battery? what is the functionality of the fuse box?

Sounds like you need someone with experience to actually help you do the work.

Well the picture above is the way it needs to be wired. You need good terminals, good crimpers, the right sized wire. Get a relay with a built in diode if you plan to hook the trigger wire up to you existing lights.

Great write-up... finished in a couple hours, but thats mostly b/c I'm a perfectionist and all the wires had to be hidden, zip tied, the right connectors and adapters for the wires (I don't splice anything). I ordered the Fog Light Housing from ImportShark, the Harness and 3000K bulbs, and HID Kit from Diode Dynamics, the rocker switch pictured above I found at Radio Shack (of all places). The only glitch I wasn't expecting is that DD wiring harness relay is new, the instruction that come with it and on their site aren't up to date yet. There are 5 wires coming off the relay (2 - for the digital ballasts, 1 - 12VDC, 1 - Ground, and 1 - Switch wire that has a positive and negative lead. I had to actually plug the positive end of the switch wire into the 10A RT Taillight before it would work. I tired to test it before I installed everything just by touching the positive lead off the switch wire to the fuse box under the hood and it wasn't working, took me a little while to figure out the problem, but once solved everything worked great. Another tip, you can cut the extra wires off the light bulbs if your using a wiring harness to do this install.

Why not just buy the actual factory switch?

It does appear the connector is the same for the MFS whether it has fog lamps or not. Probably have to add pins and wiring to it to function .

Has anyone bought the factory switch to know if it works for sure, I am thinking about buying it instead of drilling into the dash.

can i install this?

I have an aftermarket HID and i was just wondering if i can install this fog lights as well? I installed my HID with harness that comes with it from Diode Dynamics. I was gonna buy OEM fog lights and maybe HID again but i want to make it really YELLOW not white HID hehe.

Thanks anyone.

One more question on the wiring diagram for the fog lights...in the picture of the actual battery it shows a ground wire; is this just the normal ground that is currently in place?

In other words, do I only need the hot wire connected to the fuse box positive terminal with a fused wire leading to the relay?

Just want to ensure a clean install. Thanks.

Hey everyone,

I bought this item http://http://www.ebay.com/itm/2010-...item45fd4335f4

Check it out if anyone is interested in seeing the whole fog light, wire and OEM MFS switch.

I haven't installed the MFS yet, but hopefully this weekend it will get done and if gets to risky, I may just look for that relay with a built-in diode to connect it to the low beams or go with the external switch.

Good luck to all.

That looks like a good setup for those that do not have the factory stuff.
