fog lamp installation problem

I was going to install the my fog lamp today but when i look at the fuse panel under the dash there's a wire hooked on # 2 slot where i suppose to hook the fog lamp there right? i think that wire is for the alarm module is there anywhere to those 4 i can move it? also what is the diff between those 4 slots anyway?

Re: fog lamp installation problem

The difference is that they have power supplied to them at different times. It's funny that the alarm would be plugged in there, as I don't think any of those plugs have power supplied to them when the ignition is off.

thanks for the reply. i tried looking at google for the diagram but i cant find anything so that plug must have power even the ignition is off? I'm thinking if i can run both wires on that plug.

Re: fog lamp installation problem

no my alarm had a wire going there too. I just connected the alarm wire to the fog light wire after it was plugged in and everything worked fine.

Re: fog lamp installation problem

you can also put that plug in slot one. this will make the foglights will turn on only when you press the button inward and the key on "ON". the slot is to the LEFT of the slot 2

Re: fog lamp installation problem

you had BETTER NOT be pulling primary power for the actual fog lights from your interior fuse box....

if you think this is okay, please stop, call your insurance company, and ask them about Fire protection due to utter ignorance.

Re: fog lamp installation problem

VERY GOOD Link Inspire!!!

The OP never stated this procedure, nor referenced the fact he was installing the fog lights using the Stock Honda Harness' / Equipment.
(I know you know better.. hehehe)

Now, with that being said, DEFINITELY Follow that web Page to a "T"
It is very well written (I just scanned it quickly but it looks good)

IF any other method is being used and the factory option/harnesses are NOT being used... THAT is where we run into problems.

sorry for alarm.. but I have learned to NOT Presume anything or anyone's abilities on PZ.
What may be basic and simple logic to me can be totally foreign to someone else...
Kind of like me and the Mechanical/engine side of our cars. I would NEVER imagine tearing my engine apart... but I'm pretty sure I could re-wire every single harness :p

i copied this straight from the link Inspire posted. these are the exact instructions i used to hook up my foggies.

You now have to make a decision about how you want your lights to work and when the switch itself is illuminated. Your options are:

a. Operate when the key is in the "ON" position. (iE., foglights will turn on only when you press the button inward)

b. Operate the lights when the dash lights are on. (iE., when you turn on your 1st set of lights (not headlights, side markers, dash display)

If you choose a), then plug the brown plug with the two red wires needs to be plugged into the connector port marked 2:



If you choose b) then plug that into the connector port marked 1 (immediately to the left of port 2). Whichever one you choose, make sure they snap in tight

Re: fog lamp installation problem

If it helps. I'll try to take a pic of my panel tonight bc I have both an alarm and fogs. But my fogs are linked to a seperate button to turn on n off. I dont know if that matter os makes a difference. But yea...i'll try to take a pic of what my panel looks like tonight for you
