REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Disconnect the negative battery cable.
- Unfasten the wire harness at the rear of the fog/driving light assembly.
- Remove the retainer nut securing the fog/driving light to the bracket attached to the bumper reinforcement.
- Lower the light assembly and remove from the vehicle.
- Position the light assembly in the bracket attached to the bumper. Install the retainer nut and washer, then tighten.
- Connect the wire harness to the rear of the fog/driving light.
- Connect the negative battery cable.
- Test to make sure the lights work correctly.
INSTALLING AFTERMARKET AUXILIARY LIGHTS
Before installing any aftermarket light, make sure that it is legal for road use. Most acceptable lights will have a DOT approval number. Also check your local and regional inspection regulations. In certain areas, aftermarket lights must be installed in a particular manner or they may not be legal for inspection.
- Disconnect the negative battery cable.
- Unpack the contents of the light kit purchased. Place the contents in an open space where you can easily retrieve a piece if needed.
- Choose a location for the lights. If you are installing fog lights, below the bumper and apart from each other is desirable. Most fog lights are mounted below or very close to the headlights. If you are installing driving lights, above the bumper and close together is desirable. Most driving lights are mounted between the headlights.
- Drill the needed hole(s) to mount the light. Install the light, and secure using the supplied retainer nut and washer. Tighten the light mounting hardware, but not the light adjustment nut or bolt.
- Install the relay that came with the light kit in the engine compartment, in a rigid area, like a fender. Always install the relay with the terminals facing down. This will prevent water from entering the relay assembly.
- Using the wire supplied, locate the ground terminal, or terminal with the number 85 next to it on the relay, and connect a length of wire from this terminal to a good ground source. You can drill a hole and screw this wire to an inside piece of metal; just scrape the paint away from the hole to ensure a good connection.
- Locate the light terminal, or terminal with the number 87 next to it on the relay; and attach a length of wire between this terminal and the fog/driving lamps.
- Locate the ignition terminal, or terminal with the number 86 next to it on the relay, and connect a length of wire between this terminal and the light switch.
- Find a suitable mounting location for the light switch and install. Some examples of mounting areas are a location close to the main light switch, auxiliary light position in the dash panel, if equipped, or in the center of the dash panel.
- Depending on local and regional regulations, the other end of the switch can be connected to a constant power source like the battery, an ignition opening in the fuse panel, or a parking or headlight wire.
- Locate the power terminal, or terminal with the number 30 next to it on the relay, and connect a wire with a fuse of at least 10 amperes in it between the terminal and the battery.
- With all the wires connected and tied up neatly, connect the negative battery cable.
- Turn the lights on and adjust the light pattern if needed.
- Park the vehicle on level ground, so that it is perpendicular to and, facing a flat wall about 25 ft. (7.6m) away.
- Remove any stone shields, if equipped and switch on the lights.
Loosen the mounting hardware of the lights so you can aim them as follows:
- The horizontal distance between the light beams on the wall should be the same as between the lights themselves.
- The vertical height of the light beams above the ground should be 4 in. (10cm) less than the distance between the ground and the center of the lamp lenses for fog lights. For driving lights, the vertical height should be even with the distance between the ground and the center of the lamp.
- Tighten the mounting hardware.
- Test to make sure the lights work correctly, and the light pattern is even.
