Re: Rear Fog Light DIY Installation (Methods 1 & 2 and 3)


Though there is no rear fog installed we have almost everything we need to install it easily.
- there is a relay base in the relay box in the engine bay
Image
- there is a space for a dedicated 10A fuse in the fuse box in the engine bay
Image
- there is wiring for it in the rear bumper
- there is wiring for it in the control stalk
- there is wiring for it to the combination dash guages (Black #61 -ve in white connector and White/Purple #20 +12V in side brown connector)
- there is an indicator space for it in the combination dash guages (far left between Cruise/Set and 4WD)

So what do we need to do to get everything working ?
- follow the steps in Method 3
- add a relay to the existing socket
Image
- add a 10A fuse to position 36 in the engine bay fuse box
Image
- tap into the existing wires (Grey/Blue stripe) and (Blue/Yellow stripe) for the switch
Image Image
That's all you need to have it working.

If you would also like to have the indicator lamp in the dash working with it then wire an indicator LED according to the following pictures

- take the combination guages out of the dash and unclip top and bottom tabs for the front plastic lens
Image Image
- remove the indicator strip from the front of the guages
Image
- undo the screws for the back cover of the combination guages
Image
- solder a -ve wire to pin #61 of the side brown connector
Image
- solder a +ve wire to pin #20 of the side white connector
Image
- connect an LED with resistor for 12V mounted into a hole drilled under indicator position in combination guages
Image
- put it all back together in reverse order and you now have the rear fog indicator lit up with the switch
Image

And if anyone is interested, here is a pic of my super-bright LEDs mounted in the rear bumper panel (with my impending rear camera).

The Ti light stalk and front fog relay will give you the standard Ti fog function with the indicator light on the dash too.

Our Australian T30 Xtrails were not sold with rear foglamp and as such the foglamp switch does not control the rear foglamp relay. You will have to connect a bridge wire from the front foglamp relay to the rear foglamp relay for it to work. The indicator lamp in the dash is also not connected and has no LED for it, though there is a space. Instructions earlier in this thread will show you what is needed to do all of this.

Re: Rear Fog Light DIY Installation (Methods 1 & 2 and 3)


I'm just getting interested in this, but are you saying there's a seperate relay already fitted, just to run a 25w globe for the rear foglight? Would have thought just the one 30A relay (360watts?) would have driven the 2x 55w front and a 25w rear?

Hi Wiz,

Yes the same relay can run all lamps but there is a separate position for a rear foglamp relay because in the Xtrails sold overseas there was a third switch position for the foglamp on the stalk...Off, Front only, Front+Rear. Unfortunately we only have the 2 positions...Off and On.

Personally I find bright rear foglamps extremely distracting unless the weather absolutely demands it so I have wired mine to be separately switchable.

Ahh, didnt know about the multi position switch.

Yup, cant stand all those Hyundai Excel drivers running around at night in the city with high intensity rear fog lights on for no reason. emoticon
