Getting close to getting 1061 together, I am going to be running JDM bumpers front and rear, my question is about the fogs, Did the JDM's have a different switch than ours? I should have the right switch but can't find it at the moment, when are they on with the switch? Can both lights on each side be on at the same time? Anybody have any wiring diagrams on this? Thanks in advance.

I wired my inner fogs to the park light with relays ofcourse & the projectors to the factory fog harness & switch. I think there's a how to.

Driving Lights are supposed to come on with high beams, and fogs operate off a separate switch on the dash. I just wired both lights in the fogs to come on together with a relay previously but this time around I will probably run a separate switch for the driving lights or go back to the original OEM configuration and have them come on with the main beams.

I wired the fogs to a PWR switch from an auto trans car mounted in the stock spot by the mirror switch.

Is there no room on the USDM dash for the JDM fog switch?

Makes sense, USDM cars still have fogs right? So just wire the fogs to the OEM switch and dig into the driving column stalk wiring and splice the main beam into the driving lights. Done deal!

I'm pretty sure I've seen a photo of the JDM switch on this website. Instead of one big button, there are two smaller buttons.

nope, both pre and post facelift JDM's have the same foglight switch as that posted above.

The pre-facelift fogs are on or off, simple.

The facelift fogs work thus:

When switched on only the 2 projector lights come on (with the park lights), if you also have the headlights on low beam, they come on too.

However, if you switch to high beam, the 2 projectors turn off, and the other 2 non-projector lights turn on.

Just been outside and checked

Oh, and the facelift fogs have glass lenses and are damn heavy, pre-facelift their plastic and weigh much less.

I don't like installing unnecessary items in the cokpit. As far as I know the factory foglamp switch is the same for every market. Simply wire up one set to the factory switch & splice the other set into the park lights or high beam or low beam. There really isn't any need for an additional switch . Each lamp needs to have it's own relay however as they draw a lot of current.

That additional switch location is for the JDM rear wiper.

Actually Ryan, my rear wiper button is on the other side of the steering column. I forget what button accompanies it.

it's the same as in the pic above, the fog lamp switch is next to the dial for dash brightness.

the rear wiper switch is on the other side of the steering column, and is paired with the rear demister switch.

Quoting deez:

what do you guys do about turn signals?




Sorry mate, I missed this. On the JDM cars the corner lights are our indicators. That's why some are single bulb. I don't know enough about the different models and configurations but I wouldn't mind betting that all JDM single bulb corner lights came fitted on cars with the JDM headlights that have what you guys call 'city lights'. We call those side lights.

Are the city lights in the headlights like todays version of daytime running lights or do they flash like turn signals? I figured they just lit up like marker lights? I ask this because with the JDM front bumper and projector fogs the U.S. cars will lose our front bumper marker lights that are in between our headlights and fogs.

on facelift jdm cars the marker (side/park) lights are in the headlights, and the indicators (turn signals) are in the corners, beside the headlights. so there's only 1 indicator (turn signal) per side.

on pre-facelift jdm cars the marker (side/park) lights are in the corners beside the headlights, along with the indicators (turn signals), but they also have indicators (turn signals) next to the fog lights. so there are 2 indicators (turn signals) per side.

hope that makes sense.

Here is a comparison for facelift vs pre-facelift front ends for you.
1.Pre-facelift, indicators in bumper with fogs lights.




2. Facelift.



If you go with the facelift option you will need to convert your corner lights into indicators and I would also put in a set of facelift headlights with the city lights ( park lights ) in them.

Interesting, I didnt realize there were two different fronts. It looks like the only difference is the fogs, correct?

Pretty much, the pre-facelift bar has the turn signals in the bar with the fog lights while the facelift has them up next to the head lights.
Facelift also has the park lights in the headlight.
There is also a difference in the way that the fogs mount in each bar too.
The prefacelift has a vertical bar in the centre of the hole where the fog light bolts in.
