VW T5.1 Fog Lights Retrofit
Fog Lights Retrofit VW T5.1 GP
Right, fog lights retrofit... 🙂 It could be confusing, You've probably seen many kits online. Some cheaper than others. Whats the difference? Whats to look at ? let me explain.
Most of the ebay kits are cheap chines copies that come with an wiring harness and RELAY, those will be fine, those fogs will work if fitted correctly. RELAY will switch them on when you turn the light switch to FOG position. That's it. with those ebay kits there is no need to connect to vehicle modules and no need to program anything. the kit is plug and play, Im not going to discuses quality here, we all know what it is...
However this is not the way VW does it, VW factory fitted fog lights come with cornering lights feature, and are wired via Body Control module (BCM) not a RELAY. Cornering lights feature activates one of the fogs when steering wheel is turned to one side, and turns it off when driving straight. ( ONLY WITH THE LOWER BEAM ON) , Also fog lights will switch off when you select revers gear. The only way to achieve all that is to have your fog lights connected via BCM. However, only BCM 087 and above will support it, so if you dont have it, your only option is aftermarket kit or aftermarket wiring only.
How it works? When you turn the light switch to FOG position, BCM receives 12v signal on pin number X, than it will activate both fog lights, when you put reverse on, BCM will recognize it and it will turn the fogs off, when you have your driving light on and you take a left turn, again, BCM will recognize it and it will turn the left fog on. Cornering lights are actually very helpful, you can basically see more with them, and also others can see you better, especially in junctions and bends
