OEM Fog Lights

Just bought a 2006 Commander, which doesnt have fog lights.. My wife is insisting that fog lights be added..

I have found kits that come with the lights and a wiring harness, then I have also found kits that come with just the lights and a new steering column stalk.. My questions is which one to buy.. I want this to be as close to OEM install as possible..

Thanks..

And its easy to install. Once your done installing it you will have to swing by the dealer and have them tell the Commander it has fog lights via their Computer aka StarScan.

We have several members that bought the OEM lights w/stalk and all have said it was easy. Me, I am the one that has to do it differently.

I just hooked into my headlights so they are on all the time.

Sorry for the horrible picture, but I took the bumper cover off and saw this little blue plug on both sides that seems to go to the fog lights. Does this mean I just need to get the lights?

Yes, But you need to also replace the stalk as the one you have most likely does not have the fog position.

If you buy the oem kit it should come with the new stalk. after you install it all you need to do is go to a dealer and tell them you need the fog lights activated.

Does anyone have the OEM part number for this Fog Light Kit with the new Stalk?

What will the dealer charge to activate the fog lights?
