whats up everyone, well i guess ill jump right into my predictament. i bought a set of yellow style foglights from ebay...the installation was a breeze and they look great. one problem they wont turn on??? now bare in mind that they are from (depo), the instructions were a bit unclear. now i did some reaserch on the actual set up for the "real deal" lights, but the switch harness i received doesnt allow u 2 hook it up to the running lights on the steering cloumn. instead, it said or only allowed me to hook it to the # 5 slot in the fuse box....and bang ur done.. the bulbs are new their not busted, the relay might be ok but theres no way i could tell if its bad or not, and the fuse in the harness is cool too. do i need to put extra fuses in fuse box? splice and dice wires some how? so if there is anyone who could help me out i would greatly appreciate it...diagrams would be a great help aswell as refering to other sites... thanx again for the help jdm_donie peace...peace:screwy:

So if I understand you correctly, your main issue is the power wire? I spliced mine into my parking/accessory wire near the headlights

cool so the parking and the accessory wire would be located in the steering column or where is a pretty good location for doing that? would a simple t-tap work ok? thanks again for the help

You can find the wire in the steering column or near the headlights. I found it easier to do the splice under the hood near the headlights so I would have one less wire to feed into the cabin. A t tap will be fine. My method of tapping was far less sophisticated... electrical tape :disappoin

Do you know which one is your accessory wire? If not, an easy way to find it is to look at the wires that connect to your turn signal. There should be a black, red and another color (I think mine was grey striped). The other colored one will be the accessory wire. If you tap it into the red, the lights will only work with your turn signal. Tapping the black will obviously give you nothing.

alright, so black nothing, red will only turn them on when i go left or right:rofl: and the other color will turn them on continuoisly unless i turn them off by using the switch? sounds good i will try it manana, in the morning... thanks again i really apreciate that the help. ill post the results aswell if i succeed:smokin:
