Rear fog light

Post by BrianAustin » Thu Dec 06, 2018 3:24 pm

Only the offside rhd wired up with a bulb is the near side live if I put a bulb and holder in it, as I feel safer with two especially when driving in France where your on the wrong side of the road. TIA.

Hi Brian. I would be very very very careful before you experiment with anything on the electrics (unless you are a qualified auto-electrician). Modern systems are extremely complex and sensitive. You could easily trigger fault codes and warnings on all manner of unrelated things. Your dealer would no doubt be able to re-set and rectify but it wouldn't be covered by the warranty! 30 years ago I would happily wire in a set of spot lights triggered by a relay from the high beam. Now I would hesitate to even change a battery.
