Re: rear fog light installed


 My RFL is in the mail and I am looking for any more information on the DIY instal. I have TI Series 1, so if anybody has done the 'relay bridge' DIY can you please add some details/pics to this post.

 Jalal/Noel, don't bother guys. I have printed out your guides, but the more info I can find the better.

 Thanks guys...

Re: rear fog light installed


I saw the way Ceasar had his RFL wired-up and I think it was the best method ever used by any of us.

He promissed to email me photos of the install and I'm yet to receive them.

As soon as I do, I will post them here and update the existing DIY Guides.

You may wish to PM him direct for advice.

Re: rear fog light installed


Brett,

Having wired my RFL to operate with the front fog lights at the same time, I find myself not being able to use the front fog lights that much because of this.

I think the best way to wire it up will be to have it connected to a stand-alone switch in the dash, the same way Noel has done, but the perfection of Ceasar's install.

The way Ceasar connected the wiring was to tap into the front fog lights wiring at the steering harness, therefore requiring no additional wires to be run in the fuse box in the engine bay.

He then ran a wire to an LED in the dash where it lights-up as soon as he flicks the RFL switch.

Very nice and clean install.

Re: rear fog light installed


Hi All,
I have purchased the nissan rear fog lamp kit including relay (thanks Jalal). Now over the weekend I will instal it and the rocker switch to isolate the rear fog lamp from the front fogs.
 
I have read method 3, which I will use, but can someone please help me in answering the following questions for my own knowledge:
 
1. Does the Blue wire with the Yellow stripe (method 3) lead to the rear fog lamp via the relay?
 
2. Does the Grey wire with the Blue stripe (method 3) lead to the front fog lamps via the relay?
 
3. So if my guess on questions 1 and 2 are correct, then by using method 3 in connecting both these 2 wires (via inline splices) to the rocker switch, does this form a parallel circuit and is that the reason why we are connecting it this way?
 
4. And a final stupid question, if the Blue wire with the Yellow strip does lead to the rear fog lamp via the relay, why can't I just instal a rocket switch to that line wire only to either turn it off or on? (I would assume that if its a parallel circuit then that's why it cant be done)?
PS. I have asked these questions because I'm an amateur!!!

Regards

Re: rear fog light installed


I'm gonna admit to not actually reading the installation method before answering this, but straight off the bat - relays are used to switch high currents. A switch, and thin gauge wire is used to activate the coil of the relay, at which point a thicker gauge wire is used across the contact of the relay to drive the lamp.

Thin wire and high current = burnies.

Re: rear fog light installed


Michael,

The answers to your questions are specified in Method #1 HERE

Don't get bogged down too much as to which wire leads where and think of using Method #3 as an easier way to overcome a very complicated bridging process between the base of both relays.

Fitting the rocker switch in this circuit is optional and it only serves a purpose to give you the ability to control the operation of the rear fog light by switching it on or off. In all cases it will only operate while the front fog lights are on, as this is where it is getting the power from.

The xtrails in Europe have a separate steering stalk switch setting to control the rear fog light, but because we don't have that setting and only have it for the front fog lights, we came-up with the rocker switch idea to compensate.

Nath: Read the instructions mate emoticon
