Today's project: install fog lights and this neat Mitsubishi dash clock!
The clock comes with a small metal pod that can be stuck to the dash or used with a clip for your air vent, but I decided to insert it into the vacant push-to-start hole. I didn't do anything fancy to keep it there. Just wrapped it in black electrical tape a few times until it was a snug fit.
I think it looks pretty good.
The fog light kit is aftermarket (more on this later...) and includes a wiring harness with inline relay and fuse, etc. It isn't really needed since as we all know Mitsubishi has one part number for the wiring harnesses on their cars apparently and they just tuck the unneeded connectors away. So we'll just install the light assemblies and connect everything up, followed by an ETACS activation sequence. This has been documented on the forum before, but here is my attempt.
The kit does not include the missing relay you need for the main fuse box, but I got one separately.
4-pin 12v 35A
Fog lights go here. We're just gonna clip them out and use a razor blade to clean up the rim.
Now after taking off the wheel and inner liner there's access to where our lights are going. We now...untape...the connector that goes to our fog lights and screw in the assemblies to the pre-drilled holes.
Adjustment of bulb alignment may be required which I can try later. I also plan to swap the bulbs for LEDs shortly.
It also includes a dash button...but this aftermarket button does not match the connector that is pre-installed behind the dash panel.
I'm sure an OEM Mitsubishi button would have worked with the available connector but this aftermarket one simply does not. I looked again and found an adapter cable that should hopefully work. So after that gets here all that is left is ETACS sequence and we're in business.
Will update with the final result later. Stay tuned for more tuning!
