fog light installation issues 2016 single cab

Postby PaulV on Fri, 23 Oct 2020 9:12 +0000

Hi, I am a newbie so apologies if i am in the wrong area Etc.
I have just purchased my 2016 Hilux Single cab Auto Petrol ute. I decided to install fog lights, so I tracked down some factory lights and a new indicator arm with the fog light switch on it, easy right... Wrong. I have installed the indicator arm and put the fuse in the correct spot behind the stereo and I cannot get any power to the fog lights and the fog light switch on the dash is not lighting up either. I am trying this with the car running, in gear and with the head lights on. I say this because my park lights do not come on until the car is in gear. Can anyone help with some ideas on why I am not getting power to the lights. Thank in advance.

I have found that in most cases the wiring for fog lights is not installed at the factory. some of it is but not the whole run. the portion at the bumper is there but the wiring at the relay base is not.

best off installing all the relays and wiring as a new run , from the switch you installed , outwards.
