    Foglight wiring

    Hi, ive fitted std astra foglights to my mk4 cdti van (2005 envoy model) van. The plugs for the fogs were there (so im presuming the rest of the wiring is there?)

    Had a look at a fusebox/relay diagram on here, but both of mine seem different:




    std switch (no front foglight button)




    Now, i dont have a fog light switch, but i want to wire them up as full beam spot lights (so will take a feed off the stalk, so when full beam is selected, this will operate the fog relay, lighting the fogs.

    Anybody know what colour wire from the button lights the fogs? and what colour the full beam wire from the stalk is (as these will have to be joined)

    Also what wire on the stalk operates full beam? Cheers

    Gary forget about wiring them up inside that way as the full beam switch works differently to the fog light switch.

    The full beam switch is activated when the lights are on only. The fog light switch is a single press to switch on and the same for off

    I dont want them as "fogs" as i can count on one hand how many times ive used them in the last 8 years, so would be more beneficial as driving spots (every little helps)

    shurely it will just be to take a feed from the full beam trigger wire to Pin86 (on a std type relay) 85Earth, 30+12v, and 87 to the fogs.

    Yes thats all it will take but unless your going to remotely mount the relay off the fuse box the conversion can't be done there as it's all controlled by the multitimer behind it

    I have a 5 pin relay mounted behind my glovebox that puts my fogs on when my full beams are on and also allows the fogs to work as they should do

    You just need to find the black wire that goes to the fogs and white full beam wire

    Ok, so with a normal 4 pin relay, i would need the fused +12v input, out to the black fog wire. white trigger wire, and an earth?

    (thats for ONLY using them as spots)
