So Im seriousley planning on buying an HID 35w projector headlight kit.

I have no factory fog light holes, nor wires.

1) what power source can I use that wouldnt burn out a fuse or wiring lol. Preferably a source that is off when the car is off.

Option two would be to wire it directly from the positive battery terminal, in which case I do not know which fuse I should use.... and if its possible to do without a relay. which I would prefer.

Ballast Input :12V DC
Operating temperature: -40°C ~ +105°C
Ballast Size: 6.3cm * 7cm *1cm
Ignition voltage: 23000V

Im still learning about car wiring and im stumped about the ignition voltage

They just plug into your headlight harness. If not there's a harness you can get that attaches to battery and then to headlight harness that way there's only power with key on.

9007 is your bulb type btw. Literally takes 30 mins max

Not sure you are explaining yourself right on this one. HID Fog lights or HID headlights?

If you have a bit of patience and some wiring skills, you can use the existing fog light relay and fuse.

okay thanks :)

you mean the whole harness is there under it?


After I find that, just wire it to a switch and the bulbs or what?

pin "C3" of connector C2



pin "D5" of connector C3



Here is the schematic, might want to check if ground side of relay is wired.

Okay, sweet.. thanks

Has anyone tried to put foglights between the insert and middle bottom grill? Like drill a hole in the bumper.. or should I just find em at a scrap/junk yard

Most people that add fog lights, that I have seen, put them in the middle grille. Stock they come on the two outside grilles and you would need to get the mounting kits and probably a new bumper unless you are good with a saw and like the look through the plastic grille

Yeah, I've seen it with LED's. Not my cup of tea, but the ones I have seen are put in terribly. Make sure to post pics when you get em in.
