Aftermarket Foglamp Fiting to R51 ST

Postby Coloes » Fri May 11, 2018 5:56 pm

Hi all, new to the club and recently I purchased a pair of aftermarket Fog Lamps to fill the hole that is blanked off. My question is - does the wiring loom for the ST have plugs for these lamps and if so, are they wired up to come on when high beam is selected? OK so it's two questions. I would like to think Nissan used just one loom for all models and just connected accessories to suit each model.
Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

Fog lights can come on with your parking lights. When you have an ST-L or higher, the indicator/light stalk has another ring on it to turn the fog lamps on. So, even if the wiring loom is there, the switch won't be.

I thought that might be the case, should have bought an ST-L!
Thanks.

Hi
I looked into the this a while ago,but haven't done it yet.
Apparently all you need is a factory fog/light/indicator switch.
And on the D40 forum , I seen a how to....Using a diode and soldering on 2extra wires on your standard switch, running them to a universal switch to turn on and off the fog lights, they still work exactly the same and even illuminate the fog light symbol on the dash.
I could post the pics if you were interested.

Just go to a wrecker and get an STL or Ti switch, even and STX D40 Spain built will work, the wiring is all there and the dash light is fitted.

The only thing you may have to change is the plug as it is set up for Genuine fog lights, apart from that your ready to go.
