Fog lights for a NON RS

I have the lights need the bezels and a wiring harness to hook them up? I would love if I could turn them off and on with out using an added switch.I would prefer not to put any holes in my car that I do not have too. Any ideas is this possible?

Not sure about factory harnesses, but there is an aftermarket kit that uses low wattage bulbs so they can tap into side running light. Stock bulb wattage will overload side light circuits. Saw that someone else was selling just low wattage bilbs for $39/pr if you already have housing. Have also heard the bezels on the LS can be used by cutting out the center blank area if you have mechanical aptitude and correct tools.

I know it seems ridiculous but I was hoping some one out there might have an idea other than upgrading out of my LS which I love, Thanks

If you have led bulbs, just tap into the sidemarker wiring. Thats what I did with mine

The non-RS light switch has a push able center button which can be used to control fog lights.

Unfortunately the LS has the switch from RS cars. No button in the middle.

OP, there is no way to wire them with out a switch UNLESS you want them to run just day, just night, or all the time. If that's what you want, contact 2SSRS or GEN5DIY.com for a harness.

You don't necessarily have to mount a switch by drilling a hole. Just hide it up under the dash. There is a pass through hole in tr fire wall on the drivers side. Bezels are not that expensive from your dealer.

2SSRS was working on something for RS cars that required a relay. Maybe be can hook you up with the parts to make it work? The problem is not the button, it's the signal from the BCM. The BCM doesn't know you have fogs. There is also no wire in the harness to just push the button on and off.

Onky if your dealer can get a new VCI number to reprogram your car, ask him first, they will have to call and see if it is available yet.

I wired my fogs to my parking lights on my ls so all I have to do is turn that on for the fogs.
