Responded to your PM. Definetly get the KSPEC ones if you want the clean OEM look. :D

Agreed, I have not seen a set of aftermarket ones that look right in the factory holes. And nice choice of speakers by the way!

Ok heres the info you requested.

Wire the right fog to the left fog

From the left fog go to the right headlamp

From there you will see two black, a yellow, and a green wire coming from the back of the headlamp. Tap your pos.(+) wire to the yellow and neg.(-) to the green.

Thats all you have to do. Now the fogs will come on with the headlights(low beam), but not with the High Beam.

If you want a switch (which I see you have already drilled holes for :D ) just cut the neg.(-) wire somewhere close to where you can hide it then run the wires through the firewall.

All done, hope this helps ya out. :drive:

One of you guys is going to have to do this for me at the B-more meet. Then I won't be a ricer anymore. Thanks in advance (you better be there, haha).

EDIT- Oh yeah, OEM fogs are the only way to go.

Be carefull doing the wiring this way. The factory wires for the headlights are not meant to carry the extra load of the fogs. And running a switch inline on the ground wire without a relay will kill the switch in a hurry. The other thing is that the fogs will not turn off with the high beams. The low's stay on with the high's.

When I installed my OEM fogs, I ran all new wiring and used the factory multi-function switch. I put the relay in the factory relay center under the hood so everything looks right.

So, just a warning that wiring it as a piggy-back to the headlights may cause wiring or relay damage.

I can tell you from experience that on the 02' you can wire it up like this if you want it the way i described. This is because the HB and LB are on different relays. Not trying to sound like a know it all, but I assure you it does work, If you need pics I would gladly supply them. As far as the load capapcity for the wires, I have had mine wired up this way for aprrox. a month & a 1/2 with no problems whats so ever. I had mine doine by professional MECP certified installers, and they guarentee the install for life, so if it does FUBAR I can take it back :D . I am not sure whether I will go to the Baltimore meet since I am on the exec. board of my fraternity and it takes up a LOT of my free time, but if I do make it I would be happy to do the install for you Super (mine does not come with lifetime guarentee :D). Hope this clears some things up

Where did you get the factory multi-function switch?

I ordered it from the dealer. I'd give you the part number, but I don't know if it's the same for the 02.

Hi, I joined today as I was researching Fog lights for a 2002 ELANTRA GLS. Sunday night I was caught in a snow storm on the NJ turnpike and at one point saw no cars and had almost 0 visibility and almost fell off the side of the road. I ended up slowly getting off the first exit and stayed at a hotel. I have read what I could find here, printed out the part and wiring diagrams from Hyundai and found their OEM part numbers and called my dealer. Well the dealer pretty much was no help at all. I was told they have never installed a fog light set. Here are some questions/comments I hope someone can answer or reply to.

1. It looks like the OEM fog lights would replace the circles in my front bumper and would just go in from the front with no brackets or even screws needed. Seems they just squeeze in and stay in?

2. I have not looked yet, but there seems to be varying opinion if the wiring harness would have the connectors already there - ?

3. I have also noted that there are two models of light stalks multifunction switches on the steering column and the "OEM" way is to replace it with the fog light version, OR buy a Hyundai GL rear wiper switch to use in an empty switch place somewhere on the dash or somewhere and wire it up (buying a relay etc.)

4. I prefer the total OEM way, buying the lights, builbs, and the stalk and I see talk of a "kit" with everything, but can't find this kit nor know how much it is. I did find the light and stalk separelty from online parts places. Any help folks?

5. I live in Staten Island, NY. Is there any place I can go to that I can drive to get this done RIGHT. I am also thinking about putting the lights in then paying Hyundai to replace the stalk with the replacement one - they might do this for me if I ask if they had no special wiring to do that is non-OEM. But isn't ther also some additional relay or something that also has to be added? Using the GT switch does not bother me as long as everything looks stock and I am not creating any wiring problem for the car. I want it to work as it supposed to.

5. Anyone have any complete instructions, part dealer that I can get the parts form without waiting a long tine, and some prices.

Although much might have been covered here over time, usually folks learn more or better ways so please bear with me.

Yo, welcome to the site.

Let's see if I can help...

The OEM fog lights screw using the same holes and screws that hold in the little "vent" piece. There is NO wiring harness in there already. You can get the Multifunction switch and install it (DIY in the DIY section). As for places to get it installed, I can't help you. It would probably be best to get a friend or two and try it yourself, it's always fun to learn.

Get the lights from www.dreamka4u.com or www.kspec.com because they'll be way cheaper than the dealer, and the shipping, although from Korea is pretty quick with these two choices.

Hope that provides some insight for you.

Wow glad to know about the screws as it was kind of wet and cold to look around. I know I want the lights regardless of how I will get them lit so I will at least start there and move on. Thanks for the almost instant response.

What is the spec for the plug that connects to the bulb in the OEM 02 ELANTRA GLS fog light. Where do I get them ? thanks folks
