Default aftermarket fog bulb

Well thought I had wiring problem, but bulb is burnt out, can you buy after market bulb with straight wiring or do I have to buy new fog lights.

Um, ok, which car are you asking about? 90 or 2000?

You should be able to just get new bulbs for eather. I would NOT go silverstar for your fog lamps though, burn out WAY to quickly!

if you buy an aftermarket set of lights you can hook them to your factory wiring, or you can run the wires that come with it, which usually includes wires, a switch and a relay.

EDIT: you can buy replacement bulbs and plug them into the original housings.

Probably an H3 bulb. Do this..take one bulb out.. bring it with you to the parts store. Buy two...and make sure you don't touch the glass of the bulb itself. That will also reduce bulb life.

On the SS comments. The 95 I had is going strong with SS H3 bulbs for nearly a year now. Used all the time.

As the current driver of said 95, I concur. I love the bulbs. They never gave me a problem.

Take that rubber bbot off. You should see a small phillips screw. One wire will be attached to it (ground). One wire goes to the bulb. And yes, the come that way. I have a couple in a box somewhere....

I was refering to my 880'* in my stock 92 Fog Bulbs. Didn't know of the bulb lifespan for other models...
