LED FOG LIGHT UPGRADE INSTALLATION

123

Our STEDI LED Fog Light Upgrade for ARB Deluxe Bull-bars are design to be relatively plugged and play, with the only wiring necessary is for the DRL.  Fit is exactly as per the original ARB fog light. Read on below for a step by step walk-through. 

STEP 1: REMOVE WING STONE GUARDS & OLD FOG

Start by removing the wing stone guards on each side of the bar to gain access behind the fog light housing. There are a handful of nuts each side to undo and remember to keep them all aside as you won't want to lose these. Once both panels have been removed, undo the adjustment screw found on the front of the ARB fog light shroud completely to release the fog light. There are 2 tabs either side of the light that holds the light in the housing, push the light slightly to one side to help release the opposite side and remove from there.

STEP 2: INSTALL NEW STEDI LED FOG LIGHT

Accessing from the back again, reverse step 1 and place your new STEDI LED Fog Lights into place. Using the adjustment screw supplied in our kit, tighten the adjustment screw just enough to hold the light firmly in position, you will need to properly adjust this later when both lights are completely installed.

STEP 3: WIRING UP THE FOG LIGHT & DRL

Wire up the positive and negative of the fog light with the bullet head connectors that should key up exactly if you are upgrading pre-existing fog lights. Turn on the fog lights switch and check to make sure it is all firing up as normal. The yellow wire found on our fog light is the +12v wire used to trigger the DRL (day-time running light) which is the 3/4 halo you can see that runs around the edge of the light. Where this wire is ultimately connected is going to vary from vehicle to vehicle, however, generally speaking, this wire is grafted/tapped into a +ve 12v accessory that only energizes when the vehicle ignition is on. Common ignition sources are accessories like wiper blade motors, fuel pump, electric windows, air conditioner, etc. Usually, the easiest place to tap into these accessories is inside the fuse box.  Another option is to wire the Halo / DRL directly to a dedicated switch. 

Wiring the Halo / DRL is completely optional if you wish to not run the DRL at all just tie the wire away in case you wish to use it at a later stage.

STEP 4: COMPLETION

All that's left now is just the tidy up. Make sure no wires are sticking out and that the DRL is neatly spliced in, then just re-install the wing stone guards back in position. To properly angle your fog light beam, line the vehicle 7.6m from a flat wall surface and measure the height of the fog light off the ground measuring to the center of the light. Against the wall, the top of the beam should fall 100mm below the height to the center of the fog light so it has a slight tilt downwards. That's it, all done.
