New Lighting Under the Front Bumper...

Hey all,

Just purchased some Pilot PL2230B fog lamps and just finished installing them. They are 55W halogen - waiting for nighttime to test. Instead of using the cheap switch that came with the lights, I purchased an LED toggle switch and mounted it right beside the gauge cluster lighting adjustment switch. When in the on position, the end of the toggle switch lights up red - looks real cool.

They are only temporary as I intend to change out the front and rear bumper and add on side skirts but for now... I like them Let me know what you think guys and girls.

I always wanted fog lights, but didn't want to shell out the dough for SS bumper and whole retrofit.


how is this wired? Directly to battery?

I like it. I am also curious as to how they are wired.

The switch is grounded in the car under the dash. Power and Accessory wires run through the firewall. The lights are grounded under the hood and the power wire is attached to the bottom of the positive post coming out of the fuse box (The post with the red cap on it). If you remove the fuse box cover you will see that this positive post is just a big bolt so to say - you just loosen it and slide the connector on the end of the wire under it and tighten back down. When I first looked I thought oh shit... the battery is in the trunk but there is power under the hood for accessories. Wiring to the trunk would have been a big pain in the ass.

Thanks for the comments guys - appreciate it
