Fog light install?

Has anyone installed the mopar fog light kit on a base Commander? Is it real involved? I'm one of those people who’s not afraid of doing things myself, but I'm always leery of anything electrical (home or autos). If it's relatively plug and play I'd be ok, but if we start talking about splicing wires and harness's then it's over for me. The dealer want's almost as much to install it as the parts cost.

Re: Fog light install?

My dealer gets $85/hr. For that, I'd pick his brains before ordering and do it yourself!

Re: Fog light install?

It's not tooooo bad, you get the lights, a fuse, a relay and a new turn signal stalk with the proper fog / headlamp config. the wiring is already in the Vehicle and it's pretty much plug n play.... BUT (you knew there was a but...) the dealer has to take the StarScanner and tell the vehicle that it has fog lamps for them actually to work. Then if they are really nice they will add them to your option list for you so things (the switch perhaps...) can be warrantied. Hope this helps...

Re: Fog light install?

Thanks for the info. That sounds like it's something I can handle. I knew about the dealer activation thing, do they charge you for that?

That's weird about needing to program the fog lights in. I hadn't heard that.
As for the items being under warranty, they will Warrant them under your factory warranty because they're a MOPAR product.

Yes, they are Mopar, BUT... If they aren't on the option list, if a problem occurs and the dealer tries to warranty them, their claim will bounce since it isn't a recognized accy on that vehicle. So to save the hassle have them add it to the list...

Re: Fog light install?

I too like to do most things myself, but for $264. I let the dealer install it. They did everything even washed it for me. They told us that it would be covered under the 3/36000 warr. So, I guess it is all about whether you enjoy doing it it or if it is worth approx. $100 to let them do it, maybe check to see how much they charge to program

Re: Fog light install?

Someone posted a thread about fog lamp install; the stalk that comes with it has auto lamp feature does it not? If so does the feature req a light sensor, or is it already on the truck, and all it needs is a scan.
