Glad you guys figured it out. My WJ wiring is different that yours, shanezoid. Must be another difference in the '02 - '04 electrical schematics. Congrats on the fogs, they don't do much of anything, but they do make the Jeep look a lot better.

Change the bulbs to 9005's and they're much better. 25w bulbs I've always found useless.

As for the wire, I'd remove it like it says than just splicing into it, as you're now feeding power into it and you don't know where the power goes to. Just gives piece of mind that it's not going to cause an issue some where.

I have them in there already. They still are useless. Maybe I don't have them positioned correctly... ?

Yeah, they're headlight bulbs. Cheap, too.

They light up low and in front of the jeep. I notice it as with the retrofit, it's designed that it doesn't illuminate right in front of the vehicle until several feet out, and they fill in that and then some as they are lower to the ground than regular driving lights, not like a driving light. This will of course be different with halogen stock lights and blend together more. Still have to put my foglight retrofit in, so will see what difference it makes. As well, using 3000k bulbs for them.

Ok, just my 2 pennies. I wanted factory fogs real bad but could not find the oem kit anywhere. I opted for an ebay set that are round led's that are incased in black molding that fits in the factory spots as a factory replacement. All I did to get mine to work was install the headlight/blinker switch with fog switch non auto. I did not care to have the auto headlight feature. I installed the relay for the fogs and tested my factory connection, hidden up front by the frame and voila, they work. I did not have to mess with any blue wires or splice connections or anything.

Read the first few pages of the thread and it explains everything with pics and diagrams. Thats easier than me trying to explain it. I located the wires, plugged the new headlight switch in, installed the relay and everything worked, I have power to the lights.
