Have had the Gsi Front bumper for a week or 2 now and i have recently aquired the wiring from the fog lights ie the plug that goes into them with 6 inches of wire behind. Now i have the problem that the corsa has never had the front fog lights before. I have removed the blank space for putting the fog light in but their are no boxes to plug it into obviously. How do i get round this. I took the following from a calibra the front and rear switch with the plug that would have been behind the calibra lighting area. Can i put spade connectors onto the switch itself and if so has anyone any idea what each of these spades would be?






all wiring i am trying to show you is the front fog light switch

Numbers on the wiring for the calibra from the switch are numbered on the box as follows,

1 - black and green
between 1 and 3 - silver green
3 - black thick
4 - brown
5 - green and silver

I've put one in mine, I cant remember which is which but the connections from the car that i used are here:
http://corsasport.co.uk/board/viewthread.php?tid=306436

you can test which is which with a multimeter, just hook two connectors up, if a light lights up thats what those two are for, and if its live when the switch is on then thats the two terminals for when the switch

but basically from memory 3 of the terminals are for the lights inside the switch
one earth for both,
sidelight live for illuminating the logo
and a live from the relay which will illuminate the green light when fogs are on.
and the other two are for the switch,

If you do a search im sure there are some diagrams on here for wiring fogs without the std switch, which will give you everything cept what to do with the three light wires

according to haynes wiring diagram for front fog light switch, there are 4 wires used

gr/gn (grey/green) go to fuse 19 (which i assume is the sidelight fuse?) shows 2 wires joining together into 1 - i would say these are for the symbol illumination and the switch

br (brown) from pin 1 going to earth

sw/gn (black/green) goes on the front fog light relay, which is the relay switching live

the haynes doesnt show the thick black, but i would guess at it being live for the light bar across the top of the button to say its on?
