Headlight help?

What's up guys? So I just got these headlights as a present, and I think they are gonna look pretty sweet on my 97 ranger, but they didn't come with the wiring diagram for the fog lights/low beams. Does anyone have it, or can lead me in the right direction with the wiring? I tried searching the forums, but came up empty handed. I've seen many pictures of rangers with the same head lights, and I was wondering if I'm just over looking something, or if they are fairly easy to install.[IMG][/IMG]

For the most part they are, but they have a wiring harness that comes with it for the little light on the left side. That's what im looking for. My 97 doesn't have any fog lights right now so I don't have anything to really go on as far as what to do with the wiring.

Find out the manufacturer and go on line and see what info you can get.

The small light may be a projector low beam and the larger light maybe high beams, just guessing here !

See what the web has to offer.

What is the manufacturer’s name anyway ?

If the small light is a Fog LIght and you do not have the wiring in your truck as OEM, you will need to run new fused/relayed wiring.

They sent me a new fused/relay wiring. That is why I'm guessing its fog lights. They got them off of ebay from a store called P.S. Team. I've tried searching for them, but still no idea as to what I should be doing.

I like the looks of them.
You need to take an accessment of wiring.
Take pictures of the backside of the housings.
Show the wiring as he'st you can.

Looks like these: http://www.carid.com/1997-ford-range...ts-315626.html.



See if you can match up any of these numbers:
Brand: Spyder ----- Part Numbers: PRO-APC-FR93-BK NT-HIDKIT

If you can contact "Spyder" about the wiring.

If thes are the ones it looks like the OEM Connection is the same, just the Projectors that need extra wiring but just the power and ground.

Pictures... ?

The projectors are basic H3 projectors. The wiring harness included is a typical aftermarket fog light harness. It has a relay, a fuse, a switch, and leads to run to power and ground. Google search "aftermarket fog light harness" and you can probably find a diagram that explains it for you. It's a standard harness. The same basic thing that comes with most fog lights you buy in any auto parts store.

Try this schematic: https://www.ranger-forums.com/showthread.php

Here’s the picture: this can be applied to any set of aux lights, Fogs, Off-Roads, etc.
