  • HOW TO wire up second rear fog light

    Ok some of you might have seen this in Astra but its the same for Vectra as i had one and did it to that as well.

    This was done on mt CDTi SRi XP.

    Ok as most of you know we only have one fog light working but the other one has the bulb in it but is not wired.

    This is how to get it working so both will work.

    Tools required.

    Soldering Iron,
    Solder,
    Isulation tape,
    Craft Knife,
    Wire,
    Pliers,
    screw driver {not pictured}
    Conetion end. (EDIT.{This came from an old Stereo ISO plug conector that i cut up})


    Left hand side light unit behind the boot lining.

    The multi plug you need to un-clip.


    Right hand side light behind the boot liner.


    As you can see on the right hand side there is 1 more wire then in the left side. {Black with a blue trace} the third one from the top.

    remove the plastic boot liner to expose the wireing loom.



    with the multi plug un-cliped from the left lidht pop it open with the screw driver. push the conection wire in untill it clicks.



    using the pliers bare the end of the 2 wires and solder them to gether.


    run the wire with the loom so that you can join it further down.


    Carefully strip the insualtion of the Black blue trace wire splice {wind} wire together. TEST and then solder together,


    wrap all bare joints with insulation tape and put back together.

    Before.

    After.

    Good luck guys.

        Just checked out my rear fogs and its only the offside unit that illuminates so looks like a wiring mod.
