    Fog Lights

    Mounting

    Mount both of the lamps at the same height. Grille guards, light bars and bull bars make excellent mounting platforms.
    Cutting of air dam or front bumper cover may be required for custom installations. Position the lamps at an equal
    distance from the center of the vehicle and as far apart as possible. Make sure the auxiliary lamps do not restrict
    coolant airflow to the radiator or obstruct the factory headlamps, turn signals, or marker lamps of your vehicle.
    Consult your local and state regulations regarding minimum and maximum mounting height above the ground or
    specific lighting requirements.


    Harness Wiring


    Note: This is a general wiring diagram for automotive applications. Use as reference only; Your lamp kit
    harness may have different wire colors.




    1. Locate the low beam or high beam light lead on one headlamp by using a circuit tester. Use the
    following procedure: For Fog Lights: Turn on the low beam headlamps. Connect the end of the circuit
    tester to ground (-) and use the tester to locate the headlamp low beam lead. Turn off the ignition and
    the headlamps. Disconnect the battery. For Driving Lights: Turn on the high beam headlamps.
    Connect the end of the circuit tester to ground (-) and use the tester to locate the headlamp high beam
    lead. Turn off the ignition and the headlamps. Disconnect the battery.

    2. Scotch-lock the bare end of the GREEN wire to the low or high beam lead. Connect the other end of the
    GREEN wire to the green switch wire terminal.

    3. Attach the BLACK wires from the lamps to the vehicle ground.

    4. Position the relay upright on the battery side of the engine compartment in an area that is not exposed
    to water spray, excessive heat or moving parts. Make sure the relay is mounted close enough to the
    battery so the RED power lead will easily reach the positive (+) terminal of the battery.

    5. Connect the RED wire to the positive (+) battery terminal and to the relay terminal labeled 30.

    6. Route the RED / WHITE wires from the lamps to the relay. Connect the RED / WHITE wire to the lamp
    terminals and to the relay terminal labeled 87.

    7. Connect one BLACK lead to the vehicle ground and to the relay terminal labeled 86.

    8. Connect the YELLOW wire to the yellow switch wire terminal and to the relay terminal labeled 85.

    9. Test the operation of the lamps as follows: Re-connect the battery. Turn on ignition switch and low
    beam headlamps for Fog Lamps, or high beam headlamps for Driving Lamps. Activate auxiliary lamp
    switch. If lamps do not illuminate, check fuses and all wiring connections.

    10. Use wire ties to secure any slack portion of the 12 volt connection or wire harness in the engine
    compartment away from moving parts or excessive heat.



    This hook up does away with the headlight lamp connection. Green wire connects directly to the battery to
    power switch / relay.


    Lamp Aiming



    Loosen the stud or bolts securing the fog or driving lamp to the bracket to adjust the lights up or down.
    Loosen the mounting bolts to the vehicle to adjust the lights left and right. Position the vehicle on a flat
    surface at a distance of 25 feet (7.6 m) from a wall. Measure the distance from the center of the lamp to
    the ground and mark off the same height on the wall. For Fog Lamps, adjust them so the top of the light
    beam is 4 inches (102mm) below the center line mark on the wall. For Driving Lamps, adjust them so the
    bright spot of the beam pattern is on the centerline mark on the wall.
