well, my pass side fog light does not work, there are 3 wires that look to be cut, i hooked the two i thought were the right ones up, and when i did, they brights stayed on constantly and went off and on by the fog light switch and that fog light never came on...but they work fine(the brights) with those wires un hooked...could i just branch off of the driver side light and run wires across? will the voltage be a big difference? if that will work i would like to do that...thanks!

your crazy hehehe :lol: , dont branch anything . get your voltage tester out and track down the problem. if not get er' fixed when you get a buck or two. it could just be lose wire in the clip connector that is messed.

yeah i would rather do it the right way, there is no plug in the back of the fog light that isnt playing, so im gonna test the 3 wires that are cut and see if i can make the one work that i didnt use....i did a print out on our computer at work that we use to do alarms but it never gave me the wire color for fog lights, just parking and headlight...
