    Getting back on topic, how's your fog lights working?

    Please leave politics for other forums.


    Speck was a 2015 Mirage ES.

    Replaced with a 2022 Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor using the insurance payout & company Green Car incentive. No gas price anxiety, itís charged at home for around $4 - even less with solar. No oil or oil filter changes. No tune-ups - no spark plugs, engine air filters or squeaky snorkels. No rattly exhaust or emissions controls. No alternator, accessory belt, or timing chain. No piston slap or overpriced CVT. The benefits go on & on.

    Efficiency pays.

    Hopefully your fog lights are working, my led headlights don't cut through the fog at all...Hey Eggman, does the ES trim have all the wiring for the fog lights? Or would l need to buy aftermarket?

    P.S.

    These may be fog lights as there are only two cables for it, a black and a white, 12v positive and ground maybe...?

    My 2015 ES has the fog lights fully functional, not sure about subsequent years. I haven't paid much attention since mine work. Hopefully someone else can answer that for you or we can help you look for the wiring harnesses.

    Hello all,
    . . . . My 2019 G4 ES has the Switch and the necessary wiring. All you need are the foglamps, the mounting screws, and the relay. Everything else is there. The foglamp kit from the dealer is $100. You have to take the bumper cover off to install the foglamps, install the relay in the main relay box under the hood, and then validate the system. I.E. Tell ETACS that the foglamps exist. That is the step that I couldn't get to work even though others were able to do so.
    GOD Bless and Thanks,
    rich!

    Without. Fogs are not CANBUS.

    Alex,
    . . . . I thought so but I wanted to check. Is the relay CANBUS?
