Post Re: Replace Multifunction Switch w/fog lamps

Hi PClayton, thanks for your reply. Thanks for confirming the stock fog lights are 55 watt.

Yes I agree with you. However I double checked my light kit and they are H3 bulbs at 55 watt rating (each) so I shouldn't have burned out harness issue.

Plus as a point of reference my xenons run 35 watts each (or 40 watts less than the draw of the stock Halogens) so I should be in good shape from an overall current draw perspective.

Is there a seperate fuse that runs the fog light circuit or is it on the same feed as the headlights?

In terms of replacing the base MF switch with the fog light version I think I'll just have the dealer do it (unless they want to charge me $400 labor) I need them to fix my trunk sensor anyway. Damn thing thinks the hatch is open all the time so my dome light is on all the time. Dealer already told me the sensor is probably bad. Though I bet it's just a mechanical issue that needs to be checked out - I don't open the hatch that much anyway (in my seven years of ownership probably less than 500 cycles which is NOTHING for a door life test BTW).

Tom
