Fog light wiring question
I have a 2012 RAV4 I4 AWD. It did not come with any factory fog lamps, and I don't believe there is any foglight wiring. I ordered a foglight kit off of amazon.
Called - "Fog Lights / Lamps Kit OEM Replacement for Toyota RAV4 (FL-TY047-AC3)"
the included instructions are horribly written, and don't make up to the wiring kit that was included. Install of the lamps and brackets went very well, the wiring is where I'm having issues. There are two part of the wiring kit - and then connect with a single plug. One part connects to the two lights themselves, and has a black ground wire for inside the engine bay - I got all that fine. That part connects to the other part of the wiring kit which goes inside the cabin (which I've also done). That wiring kit has the relay and a 15 amp fuse, it's own ground wire, the switch which goes into the dash (I'm good with all of that) - but also two small wires; one all red and one red with a black stripe. I'm not sure where to connect those. I believe one should be connected to a constant 12v and the other to a switched 12v, but I'm unsure where to find either.
Also, will these lights be their own "closed system", meaning that they will operate totally independently from the other lights? I think here in Virginia you can't have fog lights and high beams on at the same time. If so, how will the vehicle know to turn off the fog lights if I switch to high beams?
Thanks for any help you can give!
