Installed my fog lamps yesterday-problem with wiring
So, I did a google search and found that a lot of people actually had this same issue. Just wanted to see what everyone thinks of my configuration.
Once I pulled out the d-connector there was already an orange/white wire and a yellow/white wire in the 11 and 16 spot.
I attempted to pull the wires but it would appear that you need some sort of wire release tool to remove them. At the risk of damaging the d-connect by leaving a ripped wire in the unit I just spliced my jumper into the existing wires-matching up the colors.
Now, I didnt cut the wire completely, just cut out the insulation and seperated the wiring and wrapped my new wire around the existing wire and soldered it in.
The only problem I have with this configuration is that I cannot put the shrink wrap tubing over the wire.
Should I just completely cut throught the wire, put my shrink wrap tubing over to make it weather proof or leave it with the wrapped electrical tape. If I should cut through all the way what do I do with the loose wires? Do those wires that are existing actually serve a purpose? God, I hope this makes sense.
Thanks in advance.
