replacement factory fog lights cheap?


Recommended Posts

both of the fog lights on my '01 Sierra are broken...is there a good place to get replacements cheap?  don't necessarily have to be stock, as long as they fit in the stock hole.  thanks

 

 

 

I just bought a used pair on Ebay for $60.00 and they are like new, even came with bulbs. They have some aftermarket ones that you can't tell from stock.

I got my factory fog light kit from eBaymotors. It was $138,shipped to my house. It had everything needed to install the fogs onto a truck that didn't come with them. This might be a good way to get any "small" pieces that you might need to fix your broken ones with.

Currently on ebay for under $100, free delivery. A dealership in Texas has a truckload of them. I just installed mine, and they don't work, so I either put the hot lead in the wrong spot, of the BCM needs to be programmed to know that the lights are there.

Yup the computer needs to know that they are there or just hook them up to a hot lead from the battery to the switch.

There is a Pontiac dealer in Houston who sells genuine GM and Chevrolet fog light kits on E-Bay. I bought a kit for my 2000 Silverado for about $75. This is much cheaper than any local dealer.

 

Ask for James or "internet sales" 281-899-6185. You do not need to go thru E-Bay to get the good price.

The switch is momentary contact, and the BCM controls a latching relay, so if I hook it up directly to DC, I would need a conventional on/off switch, right?

Yes if you hook it up to a direct power sourse then yes you will need a on,off switch and maybe a relay because of the amps they draw might over heat the switch if the amps are higher then the switch will handle, btw did you check the fuse box to see if there is a fuse in the driving lamps spot? you might get lucky and insert one and they may work,but if I were you I would just let the dealer have your comp. reconize the lights as a friend of mine did the same as you are, they didnt charge him much at all to do it.

The fog light fuse was already there. and is good. I got back into it during the day, and using a flashlight found the A thru F andf 1 thru 6 markings inside the connector, in the black part of the plastic, so I was in the right spot. Only thing left is the BCM, so I will call around and see if one of the dealers will program it for a reasonable amount.

thanks to all....

The Pontiac dealer in Houston is where I bought my kit. It was a "simple" plug and play operation- absolutely no re-programming needed. I'll bet you got the hot lead in the wrong place- the one that goes in the fuse box under the hood. The diagram in the instructions shows a location,which is wrong. READ the instruction where it tells you the pin location, then when you pull the plug, there are tiny letters and numbers on the plug. Find the location where the pin goes, and snap it in.

 

 

There was also the little silver colored relay that needs to be plugged in.

 

The kit was easy and it flawlessly for me. I hope this helped you to get yours working.
