CJ7 rear switch fog light help needed...

Hello Guyz!

This next week I'll start the to fix/overhaul the dashboard harness for my >>> CJ7 BUILD <<<... which is in pretty good condition...



brake pedal switch...



Fully functional ...Glow plug timer quite rare...



The PO's mess courtesy lamp... (thanks god I've found one bulb protection which missed)



So every thing is quite ok...

except...that the rear fog light switch (with yellow bulb like the pic) AND the bracket ARE missing:



PO has removed it, for sure, since I've the fog harness...:



The bad news : this part is unfoundable in France...

If somebody has thoses items on his shelves / cabs ... let me know...

For course, I'll pay for it & the shipping!

Thanks, in advance !

Regards,

Gilles

You must have the one brighter light on the left rear like most European cars? I've never seen this on CJs here. If you cannot find the harness, I am sure a simple switch and 30amp relay, powered off a switch which receives its power from the headlight circuit would work well.

That was one thing that puzzled me when I first moved to Europe. I thought people were driving around with a stop light stuck on.

Stgil, not only are factory fog lights a rarity but the OEM switch is even harder to find as well. Good luck in that quest!

@82JeepCJ7 : Thank for your reply, Rear fog light is needed by European Law...and most drivers misused it ,

@Keith460 : Thanks!, It seems to be very rare since even CB don't have it...(or in REAL bad shape)...

Well, I'm quite lucky... as already writed I have the rear fog harness :



The switch connector:



to connector to dashboard wiring:



and the part number:



I've found (not bought for the moment : no European shipping : tha's the story of my life) the right switch which seems to harness and look match!:



BTW, it exists in green too...



with white laser serigraphy the fog icon would be nice...

Question is about bracket... is it metal ? plastic ? who can/knows/tells me the accurate dimensions ?

I'll do it in metal,then epoxy backed...

Regards,

Gilles

I was wondering if they use the same switch mount as the fog lights switch in the States.

Is that the complete harness? Seems like it would not make it to the rear unless the rear wiring harness already has the wires in it.

Well!

My rear fog harness is completed ! A big Thanks to my Friend Frenchy!



some detail of the missing part in real good shape:



@John Strenk

Rear harness has a special wire (OEM) which is connected the pink wire the fog dashboard harness:



This Dashboard rear Fog harness has a special feature : no pin connector to the fog front harness



I guess there is a third harness which mix front and rear with 2 relays:

In europe you can have both: front and rear with separed switches (green and orange) and of course a special bracket (personly never seen it)...



I don't know is the same in US...

Thanks!

Regards,

Gilles

Rear Fog light. Heh, I have seen that mentioned before. I have never seen such an animal. What is it, just brighter tail lights ?
Where the original poster shows his switch, that is my front factory fog light switch.

ouch!!! coldy!!!! We find thoses temperatures in Ski Station and only on the top of the tracks the very very bad days !!!

We are at the same latitude than NY (even a bit norther) but we have 50°F and rainy conditions. I never seen that since I move (25years ago) in this area. We used to have 32°F dry and windy at this season...
NOT rainy/wet and "quite" warm: I've to wash my MTB after EVERY trail ...what a PITA!

Regards,

Gilles
