PIAA 525 Install --- Don't try this at Home!!!
This install guide will hopefully help others wanting to install the PIAA 525 without the wimpy PIAA provided switch. Remember this is not simple because the PIAA 525 provide 3 light sources in one housing.
1) LED Driving
2) Fog Light
3) Off Road Driving Light
This install shows the fog-lights and two new toggle switches installed in our Commander center stack.
I wanted to install the PIAA's and run them to toggles in existing center console spaces. Easier said then done.
FYI -- You need the PIAA 525 (obviously) and 2 SPDT (single pole double throw switches for this). You could also go with a SPDT and a SPST.
This illustration is for the 2 SPDT. This provides the ability to turn the LEDs on/off then power the second toggle and choose fog light or high off-road driving light.
Okay let's get started ---
1st mount fog lights and run wires to driver side of vehicle. Mount the relays (wires down). I drilled a pilot hole first then add rtv sealant (to prevent rust) and use stainless self tapping bolts (again, no rust).
Then run wires cleanly along driver side through the gasket in the firewall.
The fourth picture shows, you are able to run the relay power, under the lid in the engine bay fuse compartment, and finally add wrap so your wires aren't toast after one year.
