I've made a couple posts but still lost. I'll start by what I know and have.
01' XLT ranger. Does NOT have the factory fog wiring from the bumper /engine bay. I looked and triple looked, nothing :-(
I checked and pulled the radio bezel. I do infact have the factory connector for the fogs.
Checked the fuse box and do not have any fuses or relays for the fogs.
So it brings me to my next question. How do I do this?
I ordered and oem bezel 2x4 edge trim piece with the factory fog light switch.
I have been reading that I need a relay, inline fuse. Then wire the relay to the + side of the battery. and then to the fogs, and ground each fog to the chasis... How do I get it to the switch or how can the switch turn the fogs on.. that's what I am most confused about. Infact it's driving me nuts how something simple is causing me this much confusion..lol
I found this picture on a focus form:
That makes sense to me minus the fact that it goes to the switch then there is another wire after the switch? Or does that represent the same thing... but then do I run just ONE wire from the relay to the factory switch to trigger the fogs? How do I get the stock switch to light up and tell me the fogs are on just like oem?
Attached is the factory wiring for the switch but according to that and the picture above the wires that I am using are different on the relay..
I've already got the sealed relay that I was going to put in the engine bay, along with the inline fuse. I have no issues soldering or running wire I just don't understand how it talks back to the switch so to speak?
Looking at the wiring schemtics don't help they just confuse me more.
Does anyone have pictures (real) of what hooked up where and what wires went to what..etc?
I really want to get this done this weekend and feel a sense of ackomplishment..lol
Thanks for the help.
