adjuster circuit?Raimieb said:i connected all of them, except this one little white plug, looked like it fit into 4 little pins, like on the inside of a computer hard drive if you ever plugged one of those in...or on a nicad 9v electric toy car, so there is still one wire inside the hella ecode not plugged in...?
if your #2 position is filled with a grey wire, this is the 'mystery wire' that we were speaking of earlier. remove it. install the wiring kit as instructed. everything will work.Raimieb said:trying to wire up my new ecodes with angel eyes and going to run the foglight wire from the relay to the back of pinhole #2 on the harness to the headlight...one question...the hole already has a wire in it? anyone know if i can just remove this wire or if it actually has a purpose...heard it might just be a tracer wire...please send me an email so i can get this puppy up and running before Turkey Road Trip coming up! Thanks guys, any advice appreciated....
WaKramer said:I did this modification as in the diagram in the first post. Works like a charm and is a tidy installation with the factory relay and all. I ran two wires directly from the relay to reduce the voltage drop.
After doing this I removed the main fog light fuse (36 if I remember correctly) while installing the lights. I made an observation at this point. This disabled the front and back foglights as well as their corresponding led's in the switch. The power feed for the fogs at the switch went dead (terminal 2). This gave me an idea for an improvement to the circuit. By putting the relay before the switch instead of after the switch you gain the following features:
When the high beams are switched on, both the front and rear fogs are disabled (the current diagram only disables the front) and the led's become disabled (the current diagram keeps the led's lit even though the fogs are disabled with the high beams on).
The change to the wiring would be as follows:
1. Terminal 8 from the switch would be wired directly to the fog lights.
2. The wire coming into terminal 2 at the switch would be cut and wired to terminals 87 and 30 at the relay.
That's it. Terminals 85 and 86 would be wired as in the diagram.
I am going to make the change when I have some time.

Now, if I can just figure out how to install all of this stuff! My only concern is the fuse block. I haven't removed it to install new wiring yet.
Just an FYI, terminal 87A is NC (Normally closed) by convention. You should only use 87 to feed the fogs.eats1963 said:question. I just purchased a wiring harness from parts4euro.com, and I have installed it per their instructions, but can't get the fogs to work. I don't know what number this relay is, but here is how they have the relay wired.
Power - 30
Ground - 85
Euroswitch - 86
Lights - 87, 87A
Will I need to modify this to match the Bently diagram in order to get my fogs to work?

Yes.From reading all of this it sounds like the sole purpose of the relay for factory wiring is to shut off the fog lights when the high beams are turned on. Is this correct?
Yes, the factory headlight switch does that anyway. As long as the foglight bulbs are only 55W maximum each as designed.Can the switch handle the current loading of the fogs?
Not exactly at the moment with the switching off of the high beams as it is wired.Is it possible to wire up the relay, or a different relay that will fit in the factory location, to run off the trigger from the switch?
I went with these items:I know I'm bumping this from the dead, but I have a few questions on the fog lights.
As I understand, the foglight circuit is #2 on the headlight plug?
What part do I need to put a wire/terminal into the OEM plug, as I have no wire there? I see the parts list in this thread, but I'm not sure which part is what???
I take it I need wire/terminal and a seal??
So which of all the diagrams in here is the right one for oem? Lol I've got the lights fitted, I've got the switch fitted, I've got plenty of wire, I've got the relay etc, now I just need the correct diagram to follow but it's a bit confusing working my way through those pages
This I believe I understand.Just an FYI, terminal 87A is NC (Normally closed) by convention. You should only use 87 to feed the fogs.
30= 12v (High Power Feed from Battery(Fused))
87= To Fogs
86= 12v from switch
85= To Ground
