Hey guys, like the title suggests im finally hooking up my aftermarket fog lights into my car, its pretty straight forward, but the question i have is, is there a wire under the hood of the vehicle thats easy to access that is live/has power consistently? And if so which one is it and where can i find it? i need to splice the wireing harness for the fog lights to this wire.
secondly, I need to run a switch to turn the lights off and on into the cabin of the car through the firewall i guess...where is the best place to go through the firewall? I really dont wanna drill anything. Is there a plug/openeing that i can put a wire through without messing anything up? Thanks guys! Below is a similar wiring setup to help out...there are basically 3 wires to hook up...one is a black ground, the other is a white white with the exact same end as the black ground, so i assume its another ground wire. Then the 3rd is a white wire with a stripped end i assume goes to a live wire within the car to power it, then its got that on/off switch.
Bah that wont work...thanks for the suggestion...i bacically want them to be on at my leasure...There not just fog lights the're rally driving lights. I wanna use them as my main driving lights to save my motors. So i just wanna turn them on whenever i want, so i guess i have to hook to the battery.
I know what your saying then. Id check your local laws. In Ohio, driving with only fog/driving lites on is illegal. Its actually even illegal to drive with only parking lites on (they are for parking). Driving lites are not legal on inside city limits, and fog lites are illegal unless there are current foggy conditions. Also, fog lights are virtually useless in fog with high beams. Im not saying you would get pulled over everytime, but a cop looking to write a ticket can if he wants to. They consider fog and driving lites for off road use only. Of course like any laws, theyre subject to change at anytime.
