02 wrx fog light help ###

hey guys,
I recently installed some aftermarket HIDs (hi/low beam), but they only use one of the former bulbs' power plugs to power them. One of the power plugs is just hanging there. I'm assuming that this is why my fog lights won't turn on anymore. I figure that I have to complete the circuit or something in order to be able to use my foglights, which I believe that I would have to run a relay to do. has this ever happened to anyone? and does anyone know how to run this relay?

thanks,
nathan

I have the same prob but my fogs still work. The issue with mine is that when my car is idle everythings fine but as soon as i touch the go pedal they turn on high beams (with fogs). You will need a relay or just wire the fogs so they turn on whenever you hit the switch.

I had the same problem on my 03 wagon. You most likely have the three wires that plug into the factory harness in the wrong locations. When I installed my sharphid kit my fogs would come on but so would my high beam indicator light. I just moved the wires around until every thing worked correctly. I have my kit plugged in to passenger side as follows.

Factory harness Hid kit
yellow/red White
blue/white Black
red Red

You cannot use HIDs in your factory headlights. It's actually dangerous.

regarding the 9007 harness in your car, the center pin is a constant power, and the high and low beams are grounded by the switch to close the circuit. You will have to complete the circuit that is dangling for the fog lights to work again. That's all.

brfatal is correct, and you can click on his avatar to see probably 20 posts that he explains it to someone, although it does depend on the exact design of the housing, he is, generally speaking, correct.
