Rewiring foglights..

hey guys, i have an SL with fog lights already installed, and i guess its nissan's style to make it so the fog lights will only turn on if the headlights are on. im wondering if anybody knows how to rewire the fog lights so i can turn them on without having my headlights on. ill be getting projectors soon and i think itll look awesome if i can have only the halos on with my fogs. thanks!

Ya unfortunately my fogs only come on when the headlights are on. It would be kind of nice if they turned on separately for the crazy foggy days we've been having .

I don't know the exact wires to do this with, but you need to find the wire that gets the power from the headlights going into the Body Control Module. You need to swap that to get power from the running lights instead of the headlights.

Sounds easy, and probably is. Haven't tried it myself yet.

that is correct. the headlights MUST be on for the fog lights to turn on.

this article worked for my maxima. Dont know if the wiring is the same for the versa.

If its not, and you want to cut into the wiring you can take the wires from the fogs cut them and run them to a aftermarket switch
