My 06' Exige came pre-wired, Found the connectors in the front bumper, Plugged in the lights and they dont work, Tried both high beam settings, Do I need the switch panel too? Or is there a fuze missing? Thanks!
Yes and no. The Exige front grill is glued in place from the back side, so the proper way to install the lights is to remove the clam to get to the back side of the grill (on the Elise, the grill just pops out - I take it off to wax the front of the car, as it's that easy). I seem to remember reading of people that have trimmed the grill in place and added the lights without removing the clam.I thought the Exiges front clam had to be removed to perform this install.
Less hassle? Hacking up the wiring instead of just plugging it into the factory switch on the factory panel? I highly suspect that you would spend more time trying to hack something together as compared to just plugging things together as designed.skip the switch.
Less hassle, less cost, cleaner install.
In 40+ yrs of driving, I've never been in a situation where I wanted the DLs off when the high beams were on. Or, vice-versa.
