      Wonder why they don't list the wiring harness for the fog lights....weird! Tried calling the factory CS and parts, can't hardly get through to a person, much less any valuable info. They want everything to go through the dealer....

      I see in a previous thread where someone said they also bought "brackets" for the mounting of the lights? Does anyone know where they bought them? I have purchased the oem lights and switch. I would like to find out how to replace the switch if anyone has info oin that I would greatly appreciate. And, if there is any pics/video on installing the lights? Would love to get the wiring harness and just have the dealer program the bcm for $100!!

      I can't say if the brackets are the same on the 2017 as the 2011-15, but for the early years they look like this and cost about ~50 for the pair:

      I am also interested in this. I have a sub to Haynes if you want wiring diagrams or if there are modules that might help with this in general

      I don't believe they are, as (from what I've found) 2011-15 models have the fog lights in the bottom part of the bumper, whereas 2016-17 have them higher, just below the headlights and are a wildly different shape. It seems like 18 and 19 model years (or maybe just 19?) have smaller cutouts of the 16-17, but still in the same place.

      No picture/diagram visible. Using Google, if I right click and select open image in new tab, then it comes up.
