MOPAR OEM Fog Lights.........

Has anyone installed these themselves using the existing factory wiring? My 2007 Commander does have the pre-existing wiring, correct? Was it easy? Anyone have detailed instructions? Thanks in advance for any advice!

Fog Light Installation

The XK is wired, you need the light kit and stalk.
Fog Lights

This says Grand but it is the same thing. Check some of the online jeep parts
places for a kit. Sample Light

This is where I got mine: http://www.leeparts.com/jeep_command..._lamp_kit.html. They're very easy to install. The instructions can be found on that link as well. Just keep in mind that they will require programming at the dealer to activate the relays.

Most dealers have quoted me anywhere from $95 to $104.50. There is a dealer here in Houston that was doing the programming for $45, but I haven't been there in a while so I will soon see if they still honor that. I have to have my fogs activated also.

I went to Allen Samuels Chrsyler today, but to my chagrin they no longer honor the $45 deal. In fact, he quoted me the highest I have heard to date - $105. I want someone to do something that takes less than 5 minutes if you are competent and less that 15 if you are an idiot. Why do the dealers feel they need to anally rape me on the price!?!

Why don't you just install a switch and wire the fogs to it and you won't have to mess with getting it programmed ?

I added OEM lights to my XK, I didn't want to go the stealer route to enable them. If you just want to the lights to come on with the parking lights it is easy to do and the only wiring is about a 6 inch jumper and a bosh mini relay. Connect the 85 terminal of the parking light relay to the 85 terminal of the fog light relay and you are done. I wanted a dash mounted switch, so I connected a switch between those 2 relays instead of the jumper, works like a charm.

This sounds like a good way to handle it. Is there a diagram showing where the jumper goes?

Also, out of curiosity, is the starscn activating the relay by telling the computer to power it for the fogs? Or it is telling the computer to respond to the switch on the stalk?
