March 31, 2005Is there a seperate switch for the factory fog lights?I'm gonna add a set of OEM lights,my PT is already prewired except for the switch.I was just planning on buying the lights themselves since the plugs are already there.Is there anything else that would need to be added besides the switch?
March 31, 2005If it's already pre-wired, you should only have to add a different muti-function stalk (that's where the on/off for the fogs are) and through a fuse in the box.
March 31, 2005Thanks Crewzin,I was thinkin of just adding a seperate switch altogether.Do the fogs only run when your parking or headlights are on?
March 31, 2005Yes, they only come on with either of the two lights you mentioned and go off if you switch to high beams.
March 31, 2005the fog lights work with parking lights and the dem side of the headlights they go off when lights are on bright.
March 31, 2005I wired my fog/driving lights off the cigar lighter/power outlet in the console. I didn't want to buy a new stalk, nor delve into the wiring in that "sensitive" area. The power is switched by the ignition, so they only come on while in "on" or "acc.". No switch is needed, but I find that when I'm waiting for the wife and listening to the radio, people keep knocking on the door and telling me my lights are on. I may put a switch on them anyway.
September 9, 2005The fog light switch on the pt is junk any ways my o1 fog lights use to come on by there self no reason and i have seen others do i need to just run a toggel switch i guess LOL

Like you said if the stalk gets hot they will come on an stay on, (after the battery runs down or you wiggle them off.) When the switch cools off they wont come back on. Some are trying to get DC to do a TSB on the Switch.

Iâ€™m about to do the same mod and picked up my fog lights off of e-bay.
Have you thought about putting a switch where the accessory plug goes? On my base model itâ€™s just a blank, but Iâ€™ve read that the wiring is there and you can add a plug there with little trouble. It should also be controlled by the ignition switch so that you donâ€™t have to worry about hurting your battery.
Iâ€™m sure that there is something out there that would fit and it would be a â€ścleanâ€ť modification.
November 9, 2005I like the idea of them coming on with the key. When I get mine I will set it up like that. I may put in a switch as well, just incase.
But those darn foglights are not cheap..but what is?
Dreed871 do you know if all PT's are pre-wired or were you just luck with your 03?
November 30, 2005MikNancy when you connected the fog light switch to the cigar lighter / power outlet did you have any problems with it drawing to many amp and doing any damage?
I havenâ€™t made the mod yet and want to make sure that I have all the information I need before I do it.
Also, is red hot and black negative as â€śnormalâ€ť or is it different in the Cruiser?
