"rickaren, how did you connect the wiring from the fog light hallo rings so that you can turn it the rings on separate from the fog lights."
NITROSK there is a simple way and the way I did my install.
These lights are amazingly bright but require just standard wiring to power, unlike many of the high performance accessory lighting modifications. Depending on how you want them to function with headlamps or fog lamps it is simply finding a power source that is active when the Nitro is running or when the ignition switch is on. This could be taping into the headlamp or fog lamp wiring or any other power source. You can then add a switch if you do not want them powered, only when you want them activated, due to that source. They are a very simple install.
As for myself I have ran some form of daylight running on all my cars before many members were even born here, I suspect. Many times it was that parking lamps I used instead of headlamps, but sometimes as now with my Wife’s Ford Explorer I modified it to run both when the engine is running. Some complications now can be with automatic headlamps, but years past it was simple to just modify the headlamp switch wiring that could be simply reversed, if need be. In more recent times you could purchase an inexpensive Automatic Headlamp System Kit, like the 45040 Visi-Lamp from Hamsar that was easy to add that would allow one to run parking lamps, Halo rings or headlamps whenever the engine was running. These kits are still available from JC Whitney as Automatic Low-Beam Headlight Control and on e-bay.
Problem is that starting around 2006 car companies started fusing their left side lamps and their right side lamps on different circuits. Maybe this new kit has a solution to this, but on the last two cars I owned and modified, I found it simpler to run wiring from the left side to the right side headlamp and/or fog lamp to utilize it. Even Chrysler and Ford no longer offer a kit to do this, and modifying the program chip usually has some unwanted side effects.
WHAT I DID:
I had previously modified my Nitro with high performance headlamp and fog light bulbs, installed a running light kit, and ran fog lamps anytime while driving. Over time I found my wire splices near the fog lamps failing due to weather conditions and the extra current required due to not running factory bulbs. Since I was going to remove the grille and headlamp and fog lamp housings to install “Halo” rings I started looking for a solution.
On eBay I found this heavy duty head lamp/fog lamp harness
HARNESS RELAY H10 9145 HEADLIGHT BULB WIRING WIRE 6000K:eBay Motors (item 380159893654 end time Oct-18-09 09:14:27 PDT)
that would allow any modifications to head lamps in the future, even HID units. Since I was going to have everything removed for my “Halo” rings install, why not give this a try? I had to change a few things around but I powered it up from the positive battery lead as I have in the past that allows simple disconnect, and it the past it power lead has a built in fuse for safety.
I ended up using a cheap power distribution connection that allows “Halo” rings or even the fog lamp bulbs to on in several configurations. This panel is not weather proof but has been sprayed with a electrical weather proof spray and is located on the back left side of the engine so I do not expect any issues. If there was, the in-line fuse at the battery would cut the power.
I also install a pull-on, push off switch under the hood when I take it in to the Dealership for service. Having any lights on when they are servicing your vehicles (listing to your radio?) drives most mechanics crazy, so this is a good option. In my present configuration my headlamp bulbs function as from the factory, requiring them to be turned on from the dash. The headlamp "Halo" rings, fog lamp bulbs and the "Halo" fog lamp rings are always on when driving when activated. Even in sunlight, let-a-lone on an overcast day, these lights look amazing.
Very pleased with this set-up that I expect no one else would ever do, but it does show what can be done and should answer any future question. Good luck on your simple install, not the way I did mine.
