DIY - Install BFxenon HID Fog Light kit - RS and non-RS package

How-To: Install BFxenon HID Fog Lights

When installing BFxenon HID lights, for your safety, please remember to remove the battery terminal / positive lead to the battery before connecting any high voltage parts.

Step 1: Twist and pull to remove factory bulbs from the factory housing

*Step 2 and 3 are for the RS package equipped cars.
Step 2: Remove the black plastic surround, with a flat head screwdriver, by lifting up on plastic tabs.

Step 3: Remove the fog light housing from the bumper by squeezing the tabs and pushing them through the hole that secures them.



Step 4: Insert 5202 BFxenon HID bulbs directly into the housings (housings supplied in RS-Package kits) and secure them in place with the clips on the bulb. Make sure both sides clamp down

Step 5: Remove factory connection and attach the new lead provided



Step 6: Insert new lead into the ballast and connect the two leads on the ballast with the 5202 HID bulb

Step 7: Run the fog light switch into the cab.
*We ran the switch through the fender well and into the wire loom through the door. We had to add about 2’ of wire to accommodate the necessary length.
*You could also run it directly through the firewall by the brake master cylinder.


Step 8: Re-attach the positive battery connection and turn everything on. This is just to ensure everything lights up properly before you secure the ballasts and wires.

Step 9: Secure the HID ballast within the range of the connections so there is no stress on the bulb. Some recommended locations are; firewall, radiator mounting brace, front bumper brace, etc. (Some of these may not be the best option for every vehicle)

Step 10: Secure all the loose wiring away from any moving parts and out of the way of extreme heat.

Step 11: Enjoy your BFxenon HID headlights!

I already have factory fog lights. Why wouldn't I just replace the bulbs, install the ballasts by connecting to the factory ground/power, and then use the factory switch to turn the fogs on and off?

Thanks!

you could....

This is for the RS package or the LS/LT cars. The RS package doesnt have functioning "fog lights," they have DRL. Meaning they are only on during the day and you have no control otherwise. Also for the cars with no fog lights, this would be the kit to add them.

If I have a non-rs Camaro that comes with foglights can I get HID replacements and if so what is the price, part #, and is there a DYI instruction on it? THanks.

If we install the new PnP harness that is being sold by a vendor on Camaro5 that allows the DRL lights to be on with the headlights and halos as well as still being using in the auto mode, can we do without adding a new switch wired back into the cabin?

The bulbs are different from the RS (P13W) to the non-RS (5202). Our kit should work with it if you want to make the bulbs...

Well shouldn't the kit work as long as I splice the new harness for the Ballast and remove the existing P13W light harness? Other than that they will still operated as a DRL and also as a driving light now that I have the PnP harness installed.

Also are these true 5202 HID bulbs or are these bulbs about 1/2 shorter then normal HID bulbs since they are made for fog lights. Other kits have full size bulbs which gets right up on the lens and could damage it.

What? What are you going to do with the bulb?

Ok, lets forget about any PnP harness right now.

1. If I install your HID kit and also cut the factory P13W plug off and splice your plug on the HID's will come on via the DRL factory settings which mean only during the day.

2. You defeat this by adding your own switch to turn them on at anytime correct?

3. Ok, when I add the PnP harness from adaptive that keeps the factory DRL lighting circuit on at all times including at night, if I then install your HID kit I no longer need your included switch correct?

Better yet, can you provide us a picture of everything you are including with the kit, i'm interested in the wiring harness and how this aftermarket switch is tied into the system.

Finally got my bfxenon fog lights installed. I was very impressed but not now. Look down this page. But they seem a little bit too bright. I hope I don't get pulled over for them. I hope 8000k is legal without a projector. Ps I'm useing the factory housings. I wonder If there's a way to kind of point them down, so I'm not blinding people. They're on a relay that comes on with the car ignition. Sort of like the drl the rs has.

Unfortunately, there is no adjustment on the fog lights. I dont think the regulation for light output applies for the fog lights. I could be mistaken, but you should be fine!

Shoot me some pictures if you get a chance! Thanks

You can adjust the foglight down on the kit. There is a wheel on one of the mounting legs that you can spin to angle the housings down (My housings have them). These lights are very bright and I have been flashed by people.
I love the fogs and headlights kits, they are the best I have seen and I have had a few on previous cars.
My only complaint is there was no window sticker for the company ??? Come on guys !

thank you for the clarification.

hahaha... in regards to the sticker. We are having more made. We only have red and green left and the 18" white. If you would like one of those, I will be more than happy to get one in the mail for you!

How long have you had them installed ?? Were they wired as Fogs or driving light ??
I have mine wired for driving and a switch to go on if I need them.

They were hooked up as a drl. They came on with the ignition. Ohhhh well ... You live and learn. I'll be getting 5202 led lights from aacstyle and also the HOD headlight bulbs. Just sucks I have to purchase new fog light houseings now.

I only had them installed for one day. I had the switch unplugged so they weren't on at all. I had them off till I went to adjust them down. I was adjusting them and noticed this had happened. :( I wish I didn't waste my money on these HID's. That could of been money towards some wheels or something.

Sorry to see that, I checked mine and there is nothing like thet on mine. Puzzling since HID actually burn cooler. It looks like the bulb is set back slightly in the socket? Are both that way ?

Yes they were both that way. I had them connected directly to the battery. I didn't have the wireing harness from BFXenon. I did the wireing my self. It's possible they may of got to much Voltage.
