I am having trouble getting to the PM system. I'll try from home later and see if it is better.

Or just start a thread and more people might be able to help.

I'm still running the stock daytime running light configuration (headlights at 75%), until I can get a service manual and figure out exactly how they are doing DRL, I won't be fooling with them. I think someone else had LED DRLs attached and really should be in a different thread since this one is about the stock fog lights.

Those were driving lights and come on with the high beams. Just bolt through the grill with a large washer on the back side. Not the best way to mount them but it worked until I hit the deer. Eventually I'll have a much better way of doing it with currently available lights, but the bumper/grille needs to come off and get modified and I haven't been able to take my car down long enough to do the work. Two ideas are to make a metal mount that rises up a little and bolt this to the bumper, the other is make a mount that extends out to the grille mounting screws along the edge and holds the light in place. The second option is most like the factory fogs with their little 3 arms holding them in place.

The driving light thread is here:

http://chevysparkforum.com/topic/388-driving-lights/

I'll probably try moving some of the posts over to that thread when I get some time and figure out how to move them.

The front bumper removal seems to be the first step in a lot of things we need to do.

Please can someone here help me. I got the fog light set but it did not come with the paperwork. I installed the lights. But now I am having an issue getting the BCM reprogramed. The dealership is saying it will take 1.5 hours at $115.00 an hour plus possibly $50-60 for a code that may be on the paper work. Has anyone else had these issues?

You need the code from the seller.

Can you please tell me what dealership you had program your BCM. I am nearing the point of opening a case with the BBB. I mean $200.00+ is just ridiculous to turn on a factory fog light set.

Go to a different dealership.

The dealership I go to was willing to install the whole kit and program it for $235.

Don't bother with the BBB, they work hand in hand with GM.

95153828 turn/headlight/fog switch stalk

95933228 wiring harness

13500113 relay

19116043 fuse

This may be obvious but if I wanted to run different lights, I'd only need these parts correct?

Thanks

Also I believe the new PN# for the wiring harness is 95400055, if anyone want to order. This is per Matt from ThatGMPartsGuy.com

I read your post. Wow!! I never realized how labor intense it was. I bought my Spark las month and same as you, purch the fog kit. My husband was going to put it on, but it didn't come with instructions. Now after watching your install, I beleive it is worth the $150 the dealer will charge to do it. This week we had a alarm installed so I can have auto door locks. We had it conected to the trunk switch. Anyone have a better idea?? Also anyone heard when or where I might be able to get the navigation system? I'd like to switch it out with an

original chevy one. I wasn't able to locate a xlt when I purch my LT. Thanks

I did a write up on how to add a button for the back hatch it took my like 30 mins. Less then 10 bucks. No more key to open the hatch

Hi, I visited the Chevy service center today and asked for spare fog relay and fuse. Somehow these not available. But what my technician told that they don't do ecu modify for enabling fog. Any suggestions ?

Please look at my post above for the new part number for the harness and where to order.

I have a different idea, I am going with a non GMA fog (LED projector with hallo ring) so will not be going with replacing light stack. Instead I will use a separate fog on-off switch next to headlight lever. So no GMA harness.

What I did was bought everything BUT the fog lights and used my own lights. So now the inside will look OEM.

Hi, anyone have tried this type of fog lamps? I am more interested for fog lamp part. DRL is optional.
