  • Wiring question

    Hello everyone I have a quick question I recently install a set of fogs on a 2011 sienna and the fogs didn't have any relay harness. My question is if is Okay to connect the fogs direct to the existing HID kit on the car using a high beam splitter ?

    Connect the fogs to the existing HID kit? Are you taking about running two sets of bulbs off one set of ballasts? How does the high beam splitter come into play? Why are there HIDs in your fogs?

        Could you add a bit more detail on your setup?

        For your headlight, it is currently running biXenon only (as in there is no separate high beams), and you're asking whether the "high beam" connection that currently powers the solenoid can be used to also power a pair of 55W halogen bulbs (in a foglight)?

        If so, then the answer should be yes, although I would preferrably run the split upstream of the biXenon's wiring harness. I believe some of the "high beam" wires in a biXenon wiring harness aren't designed for a large current (that can power 50+W bulbs), but more for the solenoids (which needs much less).

          Actually the fogs are the morimoto direct replacement for toyota vehicles, but somehow the car does not come with factory fog lights I had to make them fit but at the moment I still don't know how to connect the fogs .

            So the foglights will only light up if you turn your OE light switch to high beam mode then. The answer then depends on how much current the fogs and the headlight solenoids draw. The latter typically won't draw much, but if your fogs draw anything above 35W, I wouldn't go with that simple splitting route.
