wiring rear fog

I want to convert my offside reverse light into a rear fog using the already existing switch for the front fogs that have been removed. How difficult is it to do this? Not a whizz at wiring and have only ever done the wiring for the fuel pump on my car, but always willing to give it a go. Or should I just get someone that knows what they are doing to do it as I imagine it won't be too expensive.

Re: wiring rear fog

You should only need 1 wire running from the switch to the RED bulb, the ground should already be there, You will have to cut or fit a diode and T into the reverse light wire at the rear,
do you have the original wiring to the front fogs or is it just a switch in the dash?

Hi Brett,

Re: wiring rear fog
