Re: V2 Fogs install and question...

You can run the wire through the grommet on the passenger side. It is on the firewall, under the fuse box in the hood. You need to remove the fuse box to be able to see it. Just poke a hole in the grommet. Hope it helps.

Re: V2 Fogs install and question...

It should be. For my car, I found the original wiring inside the car (near driver side fuse box), but I can't find the other end of the wiring harness on the front. So I just use a separate wiring harness.

Re: V2 Fogs install and question...

hmm.. i thought the wiring was already there all you had to do was take off the cover for where the fogs should go and everything was sealed off and you just need to uncover/locate the wires and everything should just plug in

The other end should be taped to the turn signal harness on the driver's side. The harness that came with my v2s didn't look like it could reach the fuse box, so I just used the pre-installed wiring. Made the process much easier.

Re: V2 Fogs install and question...

Running it through the firewall - you "could" drill a hole just to the side of the brake booster, or just go through the grommet on the side behind the fender as everyone else suggests.


There are wires for the factory harness run along the driverside fender and into the cabin - you could use those and just tap into them, but the condition of the wires varies car to car.

Either way - running through the grommet or firewall may require cutting the harness so you don't have any connectors and just resplice/solder etc everything once fed through.

Re: V2 Fogs install and question...

I actually just installed my V2's today....I went through the grommet on the passenger side under the fuse box. Just took a coat hanger, punched through, wiggled it a bit till it made it to the passenger side floor and then pulled the wires out through it.

The only wiring that is in the car from the factory, is the center section that goes from just above the under-dash fusebox and ends just behind the driverside headlight.

This small section of harness does not include the jumpers for the fog lights in the front of the car from where the middle section ends - or the relay and wires for the switch line/main feed line/ foglight switch line/ ground etc. That's another section of harness that is separate as well.


I was troubleshooting a friends fogs today - turned out to be a grounding issue.

lol nope, wish that was the case but we need to purchase both ends of the harness from either a honda dealer or jdmland.com


It's like they're teasing us.... give us the middle section which saves us the trouble of taking the fender off - but then look high and low for both end harness parts just to find they're ridiculously expensive and then turn to making it ourselves


My fogs are just done with a DIY harness. Removing the fender just to poke a small hole in the grommet for 2 small wires was annoying - but made use of having the fender off and did all projects then and there :)

Re: V2 Fogs install and question...

You guys are making this waaaaaay more complicated than it has to be. The pre-run on the exterior should be taped to the turn signal wiring harness with blue tape shoved up in the bumper on the driver's side. And the interior wire should be orance and shoved up in the dash near the fuse box. No need to do any running through the firewall. Just take the section meant to be run through the firewall and cut it in half, to the cut ends splice on bullet connectors. at that point you'll have 2 wires, each with a 2-pin connector and a bullet connector (1 male for the interior, and one female for the exterior.) From there its plug and play. Plugs plug into the interior/exterior harnesses respectively, and the bullets plug into their respective factory pre-runs. It doesnt matter which end is which when you cut the harness, the plugs are the same on both ends.

For reference: Picture Review: Replica Fog Lights v2.0 - Honda Prelude Forum - Prelude Online.com Take the 2nd interior harness and apply above instructions.

You're right about that... I figured out how to use the existing prewired harness with a lot of help from this site and a bit of playing around with a voltmeter. For those of us with V2 fogs I'll take some pics of the install and post them up later in the DIY section. Its so much easier than drilling or running to the passenger side btw

Its really a lot more simple than some people believe, including the manufacture of that damned retarded harness.

LOL so true... It's almost like some Chinese sweatshop worker just said "**** it, close enough." The aftermarket harness is almost triple redundant.

Re: V2 Fogs install and question...

Is it possible to install the v2 replicas using the USDM wiring and switch? Thanks.
