Re: Yellow fog lights?
They're not exactly the same. The bases are similar but the bulbs actually have a lot of different characteristics for the filament size/shape and covers. The most glaring difference [no pun intended] is the light output- different spread pattern and wattage. The extra 20 watts between a 9005 and a 9045 could put an extra pull on the harness and melt a socket. The 9005 also burns out faster since it isn't made to be used constantly.
9005 is a High beam bulb: 1700 lumens / 65W, unpainted tip, vertical filament, rated about 300 hours.
9006 is a Low Beam bulb: 1000 lumens / 55W, painted tip, vertical filament, rated about 1000 hours life.
9045 is the stock Fog light bulb: 45W, painted tip, horizontal filament, rated about 1000 hours life.
I got a pair of 9045's at Napa. They stock them, OEM phillips brand bulbs, but they are not out on the rack, you have to ask at the counter and they have them in the back. No clue why. It's like buying cough syrup...
Since the bulbs rated over 3x the life of the high beam ones I feel the cost is justified. I didn't ask if they come in yellow, but maybe they do.
The salesguy was only part wrong. The H11 bulb fits on the 2004-2007 Xtreme models actually and I've seen a lot of interchange sheets list them like they go on all models.
