Wiring aftermarket fog lights
« on: February 16, 2019, 01:04:24 PM »
I read several posts advising tie in the fog light wiring to the horn circuit  -  "blue and white wire".  This way power is energized through the ignition....power is off when the ignition is off....a good plan.   Where exactly is this "blue and white" wire located?

if its a pre 2018 model the wire is on the horn under the beak at the front, if its a later model then that does not work, search site for "white connector under seat"

IIRC its a 15amp fused cct so the tyre sensors use almost nothing, the horn connection is very popular for sat  nav, just might be an issue with a long horn blast combined with a charging sat nav might pop the fuse but i doubt it

On my 2016 XCx, I have my upper fog lights mounted to the horn circuit. Fast/easy job using the piggy back spade. I just wired a 2nd pair of fog lights on my lower fork tubes. I connected those to the high beam circuit of my headlights. They'll only be on when my high beam light is activated.

I used the horn blue/white with a piggy-back spade connector, wired my Zumo, spotlights and GoPro camera to it... 4k miles later no probs.  :152:

Thanks to the info I get from here and you gentlemen, have likewise wired mine to the horn circuit.  Aftermarket everything, including the Denali mounting bracket from Revzilla ($40) and the lights,  I'm in the game for less than $100 and a professional look to everything.  Pics to follow.  Beats the $500 plus for the factory OEM's.  I picked the halogen bullets...flood lights, to match the headlight color and quality.
