there is 3 holes in a triangle pattern on the cross member, thats they go lol

as for the holes, any sharp blade and a lighter works well, i used a relatively dull pocket knife and heated it up with a lighter every so often, it came out really jagged, but im gonna clean it up later with a diff blade and a file


(just to the left of the sticker are the holes

I dont know if i missed this, but how do you wire up the switch? Is there already wires ready for hookup? If someone could give me this answer that would be greatly appreciated.

If your jeep is wired for lights them you just swap the switch out and all is good. I would like to know how to wire a factory switch for a 93 that is not wired i wanna know how to tap in to the factory fog switch anyone got that info?

What if i want to just use the toggle switch that came with the fogs? How would i do that? I dont really want to buy the factory switch if i already have the toggle switch.

Guess you would have to trace the wire from the relay and fuse to the switch harness then tap in to it unless some one has done that work and could tell you the wire colors to cut. if your using a toggle then it would prob be easier to just use the wire harness that came with fogs and toggle switch

Hi I am new to this forum. I have a 1998 Grand Cherokee Laredo and I want to install fog lights. I looked under the bumper where the fog lights will be mounted and I found a plug on the driver side that looks like it is for the for lights. I can't seem to find one on the passage side. Where might the passenger side plug be? Also I called my local jeep dealer and they said according to my VIN that my car comes with the foglight harness. This is great news. I just need to cut holes in the lower bumper and mount the lights (when I looked for the harness I saw holes for the lights.

I need help finding the passenger harness and also after reading this article I dont have the relay that is in the passenger footwell. Where can I get one? When looking at the fuse box under the hood the fuse that is in the “fog light” place is a 20 and not a 30. Should I change it? Thanks so much for your help. Here is a picture of the driver side connector I found.

Also the jeep didnt come with fog light button on the left of the dash so I was going to buy a factory jeep fog light, head light switch and install it. Since I have the wiring I think I will work. I dont know though so what do you guys think? Thanks again.



This is the switch I want to buy. You can see the auto. What do I need for the auto to work. I have a "senor" on my dash but I dont know if it is a light sensor. what you think?




PLEASE HELP.

I have the factory lights and hooked the wireing up to a set of HID fogs. I hooked one up and tested it and it worked fine then when I hooked the second one up they no longer worked. I dont understand why that would blow the fuses or relay.

Best spot for a switch would be a junkyard. Brand new switch is probably gonna be just over $100. Relay, parts store, under $10. I paid $20 for my junkyard switch, probably could get a cheap one off eBay if something similar if u look enough.

I was thinking of adding the fogs to my 97 Grand and stumbled onto this thread. Pretty cool write up. If some of you guys would rather buy new switches and OE type fogs we sell them on the site. I'll post some links up for you guys.

Anyone have a part number for the relay that gets installed into the pass side footwell panel?

I have everything else done, just need to install relay and test.


Disregard, found one in garage that matches the number on relay above this one.

My ZJ came with the factory fogs but one got ripped off by a minivan along with my bumper cover. Can I use the stock switch and wiring/connector and use aftermarket off road style light instead without mods to relay or fuses etc?

you can use the same output wires, as long as the wiring is still there
