Using Relays To Wiring Off Road Lights And Accessories

When I bought my new Sierra work truck, it had fog light holes with covers. One day I got curious and got underneath and removed the covers to see everything was there to mount the OEM lenses. I found a couple of articles on a few different forums and came across the fact that the relay, fuse, and wiring to dash was already installed from the factory. I researched further into this mess I got myself interested in and found a ACDelco part D J and purchased this from amazon. Amazon didnt put much of a description on this item, just a photo and was a bit nervous but proceeded to buy anyway. It came in within 4 days and sure enough it had the fog light button.

I tried another fuse and it blew as soon as the park lights were turned on.

To make my life easier I installed a fused jumper wire into the fuse box. This allows me to use cheaper fuses or a circuit breaker while testing. My fused jumper wire with a resettable 10 amp circuit breaker installed. In reviewing the wiring diagrams I found that there were quite a few interior park lights powered by this one fuse. I went to several locations and disconnected harnesses to isolate the short.

Mar 18,  · I just bought Ford OEM fog lights for my son’s 09 Ranger XL. they fit fine into the bumpers, wires were there for hook up. I placed a relay into the Power Dist. box and it has the correct 15 amp fuse in the block.

The other connection is much wider and looks like it is supposed to mount to frame of bike with the plastic piece to keep it in place. That is the one that I can’t find a place to plug it in. I did not receive any instructions. I followed some from online.
