actually you could wire a switch into the relay. figgure out which pin is running to the fuse panel and then do a contunity test with a multimeter.
if you decide to go that way i'll be more than glad to help with any info

I may tackle that tonight after work, or on saturday. I wonder how hard the fuse panel is to open up. It doesn't look too bad, but I'm leary with the air bags and all.

Ok, I called Gm Customer Assistance Center Last Friday.

Will everyone please call and request 2 things.

1. For them to make an Fog Light accessory package to add after delivery.
2. To modify the Order guidlines for the Z85 to allow the Fog lights with the Z85 in all configurations.

From what the guy told me is that GM listens and reacts to what customers want. If a lot of us want something and let them know they may produce it.

If you call in, please leve a post here so I/We Have an idea how many called.

I'm buying the 2 light assemblies and switch. Then I'll run the wiring to the fuse panel. Then I will need them to enable the lights on in the BCM via the tech2 tool. I will need special pins to insert on the bottom side of the fuse panel and may get my buddy that works for gm to do this.

I am getting very close to doing this modification. I need the parts yet, I've been waiting a while for that, but I want these before winter.

I have done a lot of research on them in the eSi manual and am sure it can be done using factory parts. Most parts are already in place.

I listed the parts above and now have the schematics.

The main thing will be getting the pins to go in the bottom side of the fuse panel, then have it turned on in the BCM, using the tech2 tool at the dealer.

I now have to get some prices on the switch assembly and 2 fog lamps assembly.

I have 1 fog lamp from ebay.

Has anyone else attempted this yet?

Ok, I started the procedure last night by running two wires through the factory harness along the radiator support. Very time consuming, but it will be worth it to be done correctly.

I'm running 16 gauge wire for the fog lights which is an upgrade from the factory wiring of 20 gauge.

I now have to get the parts ordered. and put all the wire ends on when they get here.

I'll post more details on some hints for running the wire and removing the grille. It is very tight in there to work and you have to re-tape all the junctions of wires.

RH Wires:
1 Red - 16 Gauge wire 9'
1 Black - 16 Gauge wire 9'

LH Wires:
1 Red - 16 Gauge wire 4'
1 Black - 16 Gauge wire 4'


I'm also running an extra 16 gauge wire to the horn. I'm going to add another horn and a relay. The factory wire is very thin, I think it is about 22 gauge wire. O don't trust it to handle any more amperage that 1 horn. The horn has no label as to it's amp or wattage ratings.

Well the parts are here!

I only need the pins to insert in the bottom of the fuse panel.
I disc. the battery last night and changed the light switch and I opened the fuse panel to take a look at what I'll be doing when I get the pins.
The connectors are pretty slick looking and have retaining plastic pins that snap out to insert the pins.

Looks like it won't be too bad. It's just a tight space to work.

The switch only took about 15 minutes and it took about about 30 minutes messing around getting the fuse panel apart and back together.

Tonight I'll cut the holes for the lights and put them on. Then I just need to make the final connection.

When I get it all done, I'll take all this and make a good instruction sheet. Half of the extra time I'm trying to figure out the best way to do something so It can be documented as the easiet/fastest/best way of doing it for everyone.

The pins are available at Pep Boys, though they were out of stock! :( I'll get some monday from the dealer.

They are GM connectors, F-Term Metri-Pack 280 Series.

Here is a link to Dorman - GM Metri-Pack 280 Series from Dorman Part 85339


I have the diagrams on cd. They don't have any open position listed. I think you will want to tie into the Assessory circuit. I'm not sure.

When I take the fuse panel off next time I may remove it completely and ohm it out to the open positions since the schematics don't show anything.
This may take some time.


On the topic of the fog light, they are now installed. I just need to get the pins and tie in the wiring. The service manager said they will turn them on in the BCM, no problem.

Ok, Just back from the dealership. The service dept. was great! They downloaded a BCM update for my truck with the Fog Light option software and uploaded it. I now have a Z85 with Fog Lights that does not have a painted bumper. So that is yet one more suttle, unique thing about my truck. :D

I'll type up a detailed instruction sheet. with a parts list included. I stayed under the Factory option price!

That's awesome! Did they charge you to update the BCM? I'll definitley look into doing it myself. How many wrenches would you rate the difficulty level?

No charge for the BCM update, although they could have and some may.

It was not real difficult, but had a few delicate procedures that may be intimidating to some.

I am almost finished with a complete detailed how to document. I just need to go over it for spelling & gramatical errors and perhaps will make it in an html or word doc with pictures.

Here is a preliminary detailed instruction sheet.
I still want to add some detailed steps and hints, but can someone that is considering doing this take a look and se if it makes sense?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I. Headlamp switch Module replacement.
Approx. Time: 15 minutes

Steps:
1. Release the hood release and open the hood, using ithe prop rod to secure the hood open.
2. Disconnect the battery.
3. Remove the lower dash trim panel.
4. Remove and replace the old headlamp switch module with the new module.
5. Reinstall the lower dash trim panel.
6. Reconnect the battery. (unless moving directly to Step II & III)

Parts List:
1. 15187089 Headlamp Switch module With fog switch.

Tool List:
1. 10mm socket/ratchet. (Battery)
2. Phillips screw driver. (Lower dash trim panel)
3. 7mm socket/ratchet. (Headlamp switch)

Optional Tools for clip removal on dash trim panel.:
1. Medium to long flat blade screw driver.
2. Needle nose or flat pliers.
3. Work Light or Flashlight.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

II. Fog Lamp Assembly Installation
Approx. Time: 60-90 minutes depending on your cutting time and if the valance is removed from the truck.

Steps:
1. Optional: Jack front of vehicle and block with jack stands.
2. Optional: Remove the lower bumper plastic valance to cut fog lamp holes on a bench
3. Using a Dremmel tool with a cut off wheel, follow the pattern in the plastic and cut the access hole. Cut close to the line but allow room to use the small sanding drum tool on the Dremmel tool. This could also be done with other type of cutting tools. This is a tedious process that requires patience to get a nice cut and final appearance.
CAUTION: The Plastic may drip as it is heated by the cutting process. WEAR YOUR SAFETY GLASSES !
4. If you removed the bumper valance from the truck, reinstall it now.
5. Insert the speed nuts onto the fog lamp bracket that is bolted to the bumper.
6. Fasten the fog lamp assemblies to the brackets, 1 at a time.
7. If you jacked the truck up, you can now lower it.

Parts List:
1. 2 - 15120887 (Revised Part# 1037933 Lamp Assembly
2. 2 x 2 Pack - 45411 Dorman - M6-1.0 Speed Nut

3. WEAR YOUR SAFETY GLASSES !

Optional Tools:
1. Jack.
2. Jack Stands.
3. Work Light or Flashlight.
4. Work Bench.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

III. Forward Wiring Harness addition

Approx. Time: 60-120 minutes depending on the method and skills.
Steps:

1. Disconnect the battery.
2. Remove the grille assembly
3. Remove the left side head lamp assembly using a 13mm socket/ratchet.
4. Optional - Remove the right side head lamp assembly using a 13mm socket/ratchet if you can't get your hand down in behind correctly to work.
5. Wiring Installation

Method 1 - Use existing factory wire conduit to add 2 wires for each fog lamp assembly.

5a. Unseat all the wiring harness hold downs by squeezing the back side of them using your fingers or needle nose pliers. Start from the area of the right side head lamps wires, up the right side of the radiator, acrossed the front of the radiator, down the left side of the radiator, and up to the fuse panel. The clip near the fuse panel require you to get your hand under the fuse panel in the void.
5b. Remove the tape from the same wiring harness at all conduit junctions. Note to yourself how it is taped so you can put it back later.

RIGHT
5c. Optional - Tape 9' of Red and Black 16 gauge wires together at about 6" lengths.
5d. Insert BLACK and RED wires into 9' of wire into the factory conduit for the right fog lamp.
Start at the untaped opening in the area behind the head lamp.Work the wire into the conduit. The straighter you can make the conduit, the easier it will go in. Go the whole way to the left head lamp conduit junction. Pull the enough wire the rest of the way to the fuse panel plus some slack. (You will finish running the wires later.)
5e. Run the wires through a 3' section of 1/4" or 3/8" wire conduit toward the right fog lamp assembly.
5f. Dress the new 3' conduit in and tape the junction to the factory conduit. Be sure to get a clean and tight seal.
5g. Trim the conduit at the right fog lamp assembly to the correct length, hold the connector in place to get the correct length.
5h. Attach the bulb connector end on the right side using butt connectors, it doesn't matter here which wire is attached to the bulb socket wires. It makes a nicer looking connection if you offset them by about 2 inches. Tape around the splice of each wire, then tape the wires together.
5i. Tape around the wires at the connector end, then around the conduit end to seal the conduit.
5j. Connect the connector end and tie wrap the conduit to the bracket.

LEFT
5k. Optional - Tape 4' of Red and Black 16 gauge wires together at about 6" lengths.
5l. Insert BLACK and RED wires into 4' of wire into the factory conduit for the left fog lamp along with the wires you ran earlier to the right side.
Start at the untaped opening in the area behind the head lamp.Work the wire into the conduit. The straighter you can make the conduit, the easier it will go in. Pull the enough wire the rest of the way to the fuse panel plus some slack. Stop just before the fuse panel. (You will finish running the wires later.)
5m. Run the wires through a 3' section of 1/4" or 3/8" wire conduit toward the left fog lamp assembly.
5n. Dress the new 3' conduit in and tape the junction to the factory conduit. Be sure to get a clean and tight seal.
5o. Trim the conduit at the right fog lamp assembly to the correct length, hold the connector in place to get the correct length.
5p. Attach the bulb connector end on the right side using butt connectors, it doesn't matter here which wire is attached to the bulb socket wires. It makes a nicer looking connection if you offset them by about 2 inches. Tape around the splice of each wire, then tape the wires together.
5q. Tape around the wires at the connector end, then around the conduit end to seal the conduit.
5r. Connect the connector end and tie wrap the conduit to the bracket.

Dressing & Cleanup
5s. Go back and retape the factory conduit connections, be sure to get a clean and tight seal.
5t. Snap the conduit holders back to the radiator supports upto the the left head light. You will now have only 2 left just behing the left head lamp.
5u. At this point all of the factory wiring harness is sealed up and dress back in. The only thing left is to make the final connection into the fues panel. Clean up your area and get ready to tackle the fuse panel.

Method 2 - Use new wire conduit to add 2 wires for each fog lamp assembly.
5a. Insert BLACK and RED wires into 9' of 1/4" or 3/8" wire conduit for the right fog lamp.
5b. Insert BLACK and RED wires into 4' of 1/4" or 3/8" wire conduit for the left fog lamp.

... More to come, similar to Method 1 except you will tie wrap the new condut to the factory conduit into the fuse panel. ...

6. Tie wiring into factory fuse panel.
6a. Be SURE BOTH negative and positve leads to the battery are disconnected !
6b. The fuse panel is 3 layers thick. You need to lift 4 tabs with a flat screw driver or your fingers. and lift up on the entire panel. The tab toward the fender should be accessed through a whole behind the head lamp.
6c. Using a 7mm socket/ratchet, loosen the rear left silver lug. That attaches the connector (C1) that the wires go towards the front that you just pulled into.
6d. When the lug is loose, wiggle the large connector loose by pulling down on it. If needed loose the lug more.
6e. With the connector in hand, loosen the protective cover.
6f. Finish running the new wires through the conduit, and trim them to the correct length.
6g. Strip the 2 Black wires back 1/4" and Install the FTerm 280 series connectors on both Black wires.
6h. Strip the Red wires back 3/4", open the strands of wire and twist the 2 Red wires together. Trim the Bare end and Install the FTerm 280 series connector onto the Red wires. (This maybe tight getting the wires to fit. I had to nip a few strands from each to get them to fit into the connector.)





6i. Gently remove the green protective cover from the back of the connector by lifting the taps with a flat screw driver or other tool.
6j. Genty slide the green pin retainer that has 3 prongs, out of the connector.







6k. Insert the connector end with the 2 red wires into E2
6l. Insert 1 connector end with a black wire into D2
6m. Insert 1 connector end with a black wire into C2
6n. Be sure the connectors terminals are seated
6o. Reinstall the green pin retainer.
6p. Reinstall the green protective cover from the back of the connector.
6q. Dress the wires into the conduit and tape them as done on all wire junctions and ends.
6r. Reinstall the C1 connector onto the bottom of the fuse panel by first pushing it on until seated. DO NOT FORCE IT!
6s. Tighten the lug using the 7mm socket/ratchet.
6t. Dress the wires in and slowly lower the fuse panel back down into place until it snaps.
6u. Reseat any remaining conduit tabs.

7. Reinstall the head lamp assembly/assemblies and connectors.
8. Reinstall the top clips into the grille assembly.
9. Reinstall the grille assembly into the truck.
10. Reinstall the parking lamp connectors.
11. Reconnect the battery.

Parts List:
1. 2 - Wire ends for 9005 headlamp.
2. 1 - Roll 16 Gauge wire Black.
3. 1 - Roll 16 Gauge wire Red.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

IV. Body Control Module Update

1. Go to the dealer and request nicely that they update your Body Control Module and include the fog light option. This involves them hooking up there tech2 portable computer to there desktop/cart top computer with TIS loaded.
They select the type vehicle then all the option for the body control module.
They then transfer the software module to the tech2.
They then hook the tech2 to the diagnostic port under the steering wheel and perform the update.
They then tested and the lights worked with the park or headlamps on low beam. Total time was 10 minutes and that was while chatting with me.

V. Check aim of fog lamps

This is best done after dusk.l



The front foglamps can be adjusted by turning the adjustment screw (3) located below the backside of the lamp, next to the electrical connector.

Use the following guidelines in order to adjust the aim:

Turn the TORX® adjustment screw clockwise in order to raise the aim.
Turn the TORX® adjustment screw counter-clockwise in order to lower the aim.


Steps:
1. To ensure accurate vertical front fog lamp aiming, first perform the following steps to prepare the vehicle.

So just curious, has anyone that is considering this looked at the above post? What did you think. I know it needs a little work yet. Has anyone else started this or have plans to?
