Thanks I found a junk yard that has the harness. I may just do that.
Good call, that's what I'd do. Then it will be just like factory!
That's my plan. I don't need the glitz and glamour.
@Chris Did your silver TJ have the rear fog light?
I never had a silver TJ. You mean my black TJ?
I don’t think TJs ever came with rear fog lights. Not to my knowledge at least.
Sorry man, the original post had pictures of a silver TJ so I assumed that was yours.
My TJ has the factory rear fog light.
The stalk has two pullout positions, the first does nothing and the second is the rear fog light.
I’m assuming the first is the front fog lights and hoping that its as simple as adding the lights and a relay and they’ll work.
I don’t have wiring in the inner guards but inside the engine bay on both guards I have the plugs pictured below.
Can anyone confirm those are the right plugs?
Here’s a picture of the factory rear fog light.
Ahhh, that's a European / Australian thing. None of the TJs in the U.S. ever came with those (or those twilights either). That has something to do with local laws. Vehicles in the U.S. aren't required to have a rear fog light.
Someone such as @Kiwi TJ or @Daz7 can hopefully confirm this, since they're from New Zealand and Australia.
Is your plug the same as what I have?
Out of interest, on your stalk when you pull the knob out to turn the fog lights on, it there a second indent? (can you pull it out further)?
I meant to say taillights, oops!
U.S. spec TJs have a different looking taillight. It's been a while since I looked at my taillight plug, so I can't comment on that 100%.
Nope, on my TJ you can only pull the knob out one time, there is no second indent. It sounds like that second indent on yours is supposed to turn on the rear fog, in which case, the stalk that comes on the Australian spec TJs must be a different part number than the U.S. spec one.
I’m not sure they would do a seperate switch.
They like to keep things globally simplified hence running the same harness throughout.
This got me to check mine again.
The combination is as follows:
-parking lights (rolling the knob forward once)
-headlights (rolling the knob forward again)
-front fog lights (pulling the knob out one indent.
-rear fog light (rolling the knob forward whilst front fog lights are on)
To throw more confusion mine does not have the wiring for the spot lights.
Not sure what the three wire plugs are on top of the right and left guard, but in trying to find out I checked the relay wiring check the colours only to find out I have no wires running into that spot for the relay. DOH.
I'll have to try find the full loom.
I’ve managed to source a NOS OEM fog light wiring harness.
One I track down some fog lights I’ll post my results.
