Fog light mod
One of the things I
never got was why the fog lights on a Wrangler are wired to go out when
the high beam headlights are on. Too much light? Well, with my eyes,
there's no such thing, so anything that sheds more light out the front
of the Monster is appreciated. I ran across a website that described how
to do the mod, but the directions were hard to follow, and the
photography wasn't the best, either. So here's my effort to make things
clearer for everyone.
And now, the
Hindle) take no responsibility for anything that might happen as a
result of the following modification. If you choose to attempt this
modification, you are solely responsible for any consequences. Also,
there is no evidence that this mod is even legal, so depending on where
you live, you might be breaking the law by doing this mod. Check your
state's laws before attempting this modification.
OK, now that
the lawyers are satisfied....
This is an
incredibly easy mod. The only variable is what year your Wrangler is. If
it is a YJ, or an up to '99 TJ (and some '00 TJ's) open the glove box, and
take its lid off. Inside there is a fuse block, and next to it and a
little higher, are two relays (photo A). Pull out the one on the right,
and bend the pin shown on photo B. Don't worry, these are not easily
broken, and it will bend up without much effort. replace the relay back
into it's plug, and you're done!
Now, if you
have a '01 and up TJ, look under the hood in the relay and fuse block
(photo C), and pull out the relay shown and do the same thing to the
pin. re-insert, and check your work. The fog light should now stay on
even when the high beams are on.
Hopefully, this will
clear up any confusion, and let you see a bit better after sunset.
