was there a slotted ring behind each rotor for the abs when you removed the old spindles?

maybe the sensors were damaged and just removed, im sure the light wont come on if you just remove the sensors

but the light will stay on if power is cut to the module, or will light up temporarily when the system is activated, you can also check the module under the hood and see if you have front abs lines running through it. i believe there is 2 lines from the master, that lead to the module then 3 lines coming out of it (2 for the front calipers and 1 for the rear t block) i figure if you only have 1 line coming out of the module then its just a RABS situation and the plugs must be dummies

behind the bezel it should be a gray plug on the left side, also check under the hood in the dist box to see if you have a relay.

Relay should be here

Those plugs are defiantly for the fog lights. My truck has the same plugs. Directly behind front bumper, one on each side, about 5 inches above where the foglights would go.

Here's pics of the ABS sensor plugs on my truck. Keep in mind the sensors are slightly different in my 03 than they were in 98-00. The wire loom my finger is on goes to the foglight.

Do you have a Fog Light Sw ?
Do you have interior wiring for a FOg Light Sw ?

If so apply power and check out the plug… that simple.
If you get nothing then turn on the head lights and see if there is power ?

Make some notes when checking out the wiring to keep thing in order.

ltr,

If the above is true and the wiring is there, then you will need to get a Radio Bezel that has a Fog Sw in it, easy find in the JY, hook up the Sw and you should get power at the plug.

Be careful not to run more than 35 w/ea Lights on OEM Wiring…
If your Fog Lights are 55W or larger consider a new power wire/relay and use the existing Fog Sw wiring to activate the new relay.

I think if I was him for a simple test I'd pull the radio panel and look for a fog light plug. If he finds one I'd install a relay and fuse in the power distribution panel then get a jumper wire to jump across the terminals of the fog switch plug. Then those plugs should become hot. (similar to what you're proposing but saves him buying parts if he doesn't have the wiring. )

By the way how is the twin stick setup coming Grev?

Slow on the mods, too many things to do this summer, also the new toy.

I only suggested buying the Bezel w/sw after the previous posting that suggested he look and see what he has.

"Do you have a Fog Light Sw ?

But I agree check out what you have before proceeding.
As stated watch the wattage of the new lights.
