I was checking my car's wiring and it has the wire and plug for each fog lamp in the front. It does not have the relay and ovbiously not the stalk. So, all I have to do is change the stalk, plug the relay and install the fog lamps?

Theoretically that is correct. Was your car a Japanese market Vitz?

I purchased it in Panama, AFAIK it is labeled by Toyota as general market, but it shares several parts. The stalk, for example, is the same.

Correct. Unfortunately Micro Image has closed its doors. I am not aware of another plug and play aftermarket fog light kit for the Yaris.

Hello guys I'm new here I'm looking the fog light on eBay but I got confuse because I don't know which one should I get when I type my model which is Yaris 2012 sedan 4 dr. It shows fog light sedan 2006-2011 the other one says fog light for Yaris 2/5 dr hatch 2012-2015
I can easily pick the 2012 but I have the 4 dr sedan.

Sedans did not change in 2012, as liftbacks did, so your car is the same as a 06-11 Sedan.

CTScott are there still no good options for fog lights off the shelf (2010 hatchback) or is everything a piece together parts list ?

I have not seen any good complete kits since MicroImage closed. I used to build the plug and play harnesses for them and can modify the crappy kits into the equivalent.

Was this plug n play solely for the benefit of connecting to a fog enabled stalk, or was the use of the switch in between the seats more straightforward ?

Based on the wiring diagragm and parts I was looking at, it looks to be a simpler install so long as i wire to the relay properly.

The purpose of the plug and play kit was to take advantage of the wiring that already goes through the firewall for fog lights.

The aftermarket kits are not actually designed for the car. There was a DIY on here about using the aftermarket kits with the OEM wiring, but the internal circuitry of the switch included with the kit bridges the switching and the illumination circuits together. Also the relay included with most aftermarket kits is garbage and many who have used it have eventually had it internally fail and melt its plastic case.

I disassembled my eBay harness, bought the proper relay, and have everything wired inside the car (using switch) and got everything under the hood wired up.

Relay clicks, and one fog lights up pretty weakly. I believe I traced it to the connection to the under hood fuse panel, I don't think my wires are reaching the pins fully. I bought the pins below thinking they were the right kind, but they do not go all the way into the plug. Are these correct, or an I missing some trick to 'insert wire'?



Edit: connection might be good, as I tried it without the plug and touched the pins directly. Still one light on weak and the other off. Either bad lights or I need to have a dedicated wire to each, as they are spliced further down.

Odd I would expect both to be on weakly in that case
