Sep 07, 2007 (8:28 am)
Where does the factory fog light switch go? is there a place on the dash for it?

When the fog lights are installed they replace the light switch with a new one which activates what you want. Parking, lights, lights with fog lights. I don't think you can just run the fog lights. It's just a new switch.

The fog light switch is integrated into the light switch stalk. You get new stalk with the fog lights.

thanks guys.. im getting the lights + crossbars installed this coming monday as a part of the deal. I was afraid they have to take the dash apart or something to run wires through.. i hope not anyway.

This is what your getting. You are better off having the dealer do it, because if there a problem they will have to deal with it
Except for the switch, the installation is almost identical to Gen 2 fog light install. The switch is not difficult to replace.
An easy DIY for average DIYer. While you have the bumper off, replace the horns with air horns or something

i got the lights installed and got a new stalk. Still trying to get used to it. I accidentally switched off the front lights trying to signal.

My dealer just informed me it would be $550 to install fog lights on my new 2008 EX. I thought he was joking. That's outrageous. I'll buy a pair at PepBoys and make do for $100.

The ones at PepBoys are generic not a Honda factory accessory.
You could order the real deal from College Hills Honda for 238.00 if you want to install them your self they include a replacement light stalk.

I leased a 2007 model 4WD EX-L. I was shocked to learn that the vehicle doesn't have Fog Lights as standard equipment. My dealer in tarrytown, NY quoted about $390.00 installed ( I think, that's the salesman talking). The roof rack was more. THAT'S OUTLANDISH. AN SUV W/O STANDARD FOG LIGHTS AND A ROOF RACK ??? That's such a ripoff by Honda.
Saw a fog light package at College Hills parts (Google it). They provide videos for the installation. But beware: the entire fron bumper and engine shroud need to come off ??? Then u need to modify the fron bumper by cutting out the fog light ribbed cutouts that u see in the lower portion of the bumper. Then u need to take apart the driver's side molding to run the wiring , etc on and on. Is Honda KIDDING ??? This is like ordering your car w/o A/c and then installing after market. It would have cost pittens to have provided 'fog lights' on a vehicle that was 'top of the line" : EX-L model.
Didn't the Japanese car makers start provding fog lights b 4 any of the US makers way back when?
