Customer Question
I have a 2014 Nissan...
I have a 2014 Nissan Rogue select AWD that did not come with fog lights. I purchased a light selector switch (25540-ee90e off of Ebay) with the one that has the fog light ring. I installed the new switch and connected my new LED fog lights to the factory wiring. However my fog lights will not turn on (all other light functions still work with the new switch). I used a multi-meter to determine the factory wiring harness is not getting power. Is there a relay or fuse I need to install? Maybe the BCM is not sensing the new switch? Please help?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution.

So unless you bought the kit there is a relay and harness that is supposed to come with it, you can get that from nissan,

I purchased aftermarket LED lights and the switch separately. I'm using the factory wiring harness that is already on the vehicle. Do you have the part numbers and an installation instructions for the other components. I read on other user forums that you just needed the switch and the lights.

So I cant find those instructions in my system if I remember right its either a relay or you have to go into the computer to tell it to recognize the switch, I would call parts dept and see which one it is.

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

After buying the lights and the switch, the only thing you would need to do is have the Bcm reconfigured for the fog lights to work.

Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 9 months ago

That would need to be done by the dealer.
