Re: Fog Light Harness Upgrade

It can and has been done. The problem however, even with the increased voltage and switching to 9006 bulbs, the lenses on the factory foglights distort some of the light output. You can certainly see the difference at least in the one I saw.

Re: Fog Light Harness Upgrade


basically the Ford wiring has a bit of voltage drop inherient in its configuration so you don't get max voltage on the bulbs.

Easiest thing to do is go to WalMart and get a couple of Silver Stars and then order the harness at

http://www.suvlights.com/

so you get full battery voltage on them and enjoy. About $140.00 total.

Re: Fog Light Harness Upgrade

Hey... does any one sell a 9145 fog light "male" plug. I was thinking.... if I bought two headlight harness'..... and made each harness have a plug for the 9007 headlight and the other for the 9145 fog light... then..... you could have a really clean harness.... one for each side of the truck.... get more light out of your fog lights, and solve the fog light problem by having them on with the high beams. So let me know what you guys think and if you know of anyone that has a 9145 plug.

If you mean a plug that looks like the bulb base and connects to the existing wiring harness, you could sacrifice a bulb and build your own. That's how I connected my headlight harness. Took the old bulbs, clipped the glass off and soldered to the metal leads coming out. Used one to connect the harness to the stock wiring, and the other for the high/low diode. Harness plugged to the passenger side wiring and diode plugged to the driver's side.
