Anyone with a 2001 or 2002 Elantra ever install foglams by removing those black things where foglams should be? <img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Try doing a search, I'm sure I've seen this ? before on this board.
Mine came with fog lamps, so I don't know.

My 'rents got the dealer to throw in Projector type fogs into their 2002 GLS. What they did was cut out a hole in the center of the black cicular peice of plastic about the size of a half dollar and put them there. Nice one's they are brighter than the headlamps.

I did. I used Pilot 4" round fog ligths and they look great they are a little tricky to install you can use one of the original holes(were the black vent screws on) and extend the other side with a bracket. just use your melon when you remove the black vents by the way its very thight spaced I will try to post the pics<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Welcome Mike. I didn't install the lamps myself, I had some Sirius ($40.00) amber lamps installed. I just today had Sylvania halogen bulbs (h-3 type) put in because the original (made in Taiwan) bulbs had a short life span. The brackets and harnesses fit in side the openings when the "black things" are taken out. Someone here DID install factory-type KOREAN lamps themselves ($85.00 I believe at Sharkracing.com) and e-mailed me the details. I'm not sure if the complete instructions were ever posted here on HP forum, but it has been discussed. I'll send you the instructions I received for self-installation if you like...If I can find them that is. Just let me know.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Thanks for the replies, I did a search and didn't find much but I believe it was here before, searches just sometimes don't pull up what you are looking for no matter what you type in. I just noticed that I mis typed FOGLAMPS (foglams) 3 times!! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0> I must have been tired.

Thanks again, the links and info were very helpful.

Very Very nice!! I know what I am doing now for <u>sure</u>. That looks very factory like. BTW I almost bought that color Elantra but they didn't have a sunroof or CD with it on the lot and I wanted both. Nice car!! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

How to put factory fog lamps on your XD(2k1+) Elantra!

A: Buy fog lights from Shark Racing

B: Call LBC Autosports Warehouse at 1-800-382-1009 and order (2) GM fog lamp repair kits(Harnesses) part number 85855.

C: Go to you local parts store and buy some T-Taps, electrical tape & some red & black 14-16 gauge wire. Also pick up some bolts to fit the fog lights(Take a light with you) & some various crimp connectors(buy a basic kit with all connectors).

D: Pull the stock side marker light outs on both sides. Take the plastic covers off where the fog lights mount. Mount the fog lights. Plug in the harnesses. Extend the wires, purple on the harness is power. Connect the power wire to the side marker power wire(pink pass/green driv)with a T-Tap(Or solder if you want). Connect the ground wire to the bumper mount(With a ring terminal connector) which is up from the fog light a few inches and to the left(pass)/right(driver). Place side marker back in and turn on your lights to make sure they work. Make sure the power has a GOOD connection.

You now have factory fog lights for around $100 that come on with the parking lights!

Good luck<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Iwouldn't recommend using your parking light circiut to run driving lamps. The driving lamps pull way too much current. I'd buy a universal turn-on relay for $5.00 and use the parking light circuit as the "turn-on" lead to activate the relay. The relay will come with a diagram of how to hook up the wires. Either that, or buy a stock fog light switch, and use it to turn on your lights.

Pull power off the battery to a fuse, then to the "power-input" post on the relay. Run power from the "power-output" post on the relay to the lights. Run your ground from the lights to the "ground" post on the relay, then from the "ground" post on the relay to a good chassis ground. Run a wire from the parking light circuit to the relay's "turn-on" post. This will cause the parking lights to act like a switch, but your lights will be powered off the battery. If you use a 4-post relay, there should be no open posts left. If you use a 5-post relay, you can either run a separate power wire to each light, or just leave the fifth post open.

You may not have ever had a problem with wiring new lights into existing circuits, but it can happen. And as Murphy would tell you, it'll happen at the very worst moment.
A few years ago, I wired a new set of driving lights (with switch) in parallel with the high beams on my Grand Cherokee. They seemed to work great, but I could only try them for short stretches of time because of heavy traffic where I live. A couple weeks later I headed out to go hunting up near Gunnison Colorado, which for me means a trip over +11,000' Monarch pass. I got a late start, so it was about 10pm when I started down the back side of the pass, fully loaded with gear and towing a travel trailer. It was a cloudy, moonless night and there was very little traffic so I figured it was time to try out the new lights. They were great! It seemed like I could see for miles, that is until I was going around a sharp bend (the only kind of bend on Monarch pass) and the headlight fuse finally had enough. Bam! No lights at all and I'm in the middle of a corner going about 45 mph with a several thousand foot drop off to my left. Not much fun. I had to drive from memory, because it was pitch black. I somehow got stopped, got out my flashlight and found that I was on the shoulder of the oncoming lane, a foot or two from the drop-off. Using the flashlight, I got over to the other shoulder, turned off the driving light switch, changed the fuse (and my pants!) and drove the rest of the way at about 30 mph, shaking like a leaf. Needless to say, I put in a relay as soon as I got back!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
