Fog light bulbs

I need to find new fog light bulbs for my fog lights. The only problem is, my connectors are bullet-type, and the only h3 fog light bulbs I can find are spade type. I do not want to have to do any splicing or anything to make it work.

I've tried searching for h3 fog lights that are bullet type, but no luck.

Could yall render some assistance?

Re: Fog light bulbs

No, I do not think I need an H3C type bulb. The regular fog light bulbs would work.... Except the only ones I can find have the spade-connector. Where-as my fog light harness requires a bullet-type connector.

Re: Fog light bulbs

pictures would be a huge help, the factory fogs take H3C bulbs.

Re: Fog light bulbs

I just looked at a USDM fog light install guide and they look like H3 bulbs. My JDM replica's have the H3C bulbs. Does the bulb look like this?
If so im guessing it has a diffrent connector? Or is it the same?

Re: Fog light bulbs

my theory now is that all of the v1 jdm fogs have bullet connectors while all aftermarket bulbs are .25o spade. so i had same problem as you, my solution: cut the wire before the spade connector on the harness and crimp a .250 spade connector onto the wire and heat shrink tube it or wrap it in electrical tape(i wrapped it in tape). if you doing it this way any aftermarket h3 bulb will fit

edit: just realized you dont want to splice, sorry

its realy not that hard to do that splicing. I would suggest the same thing cause i dont know another solution. I cant find those bulbs with different connector tips.

Re: Fog light bulbs

Interesting, I just bought some LED fog light bulbs. Unfortunately the connection is also a spade.

Only reason I did not want to do any splicing is because I already tried it. So I am ordering these in case I messed up the bulbs.

I am not sure what was wrong with my bulbs in the first place. They *were* working under my splicing abilities but then they just stopped. They would work for a few seconds every now and then, so it was not the bulbs being burnt out. When I get the new LED fog lights and install them I will add all new connectors and such.

BTW the new bulbs are these: http://superlumination.com/images/au...36led_a_wm.jpg

I could have gotten white or blue... My previous fog lights were a dull purple, and I decided on a nice amber, to go old school.
