Question Fog lamps for Chevrolet Equinox LS 2018

Hello,

I have bought a Chevrolet Equinox LS 2018 that comes without fog lamps. I thought that i could buy them later and I bought the 2 fog lamps with the part numbers are 84226249 and 84226250. Now i have a big problem, because i need a new harness and others parts in order to install the new 2 fog lamps.

I would like to know all the parts that i need to buy in order to install the 2 fog lamps in my Chevrolet Equinox LS model 2018.

Regards
Alex

Iím rather certain that in addition to other parts (I donít have the list, but also the switch assembly) - you will have to have the BCM reprogrammed to recognize the switch and lights.

I'm curious about the outcome of this project. Unfortunately it may turn into an expensive and frustrating experience.

Agree that the BCM would need to be flashed to recognize an additional accessory.

gm doesnít offer it as an add on kit for the 2018+ like they did previous generations. iíve been waiting since over over 2017 for the dealer to figure out whatís needed to add them, when i bought the vehicle they said a kit would probably be available within 6 months and a year and a half later it still isnít, iím losing hope for it at this point

Use the "search" function and you will find my posts describing my fog light installation on my 2018 LT diesel. I don't believe there is any complete kit avaiable for these vehicles dealer installed or complete for owner install. I bought the same, (Premier), fog light assemblies that you did and installed them myself, making up my own harness with required relays, fuses and switch. No need to flash ECM and they work automatically with low beams, (w/switch on), and turn off when high beams are used.
FYI, you will find that the directional signal bulb is double filament and those in your vehicle are single filiment. One filiment is not used and may have a future use but the plug for your stock signal bulb will not plug onto the double filiment bulb and the single filiment bulb will not index into your "new" fixtures. (I was able to remove one of the plastic index points on the double filiment bulb and stock plug slid right on.
As you might see, this install isn't for the faint of heart but I totally enjoy this kind of project and the results have been 100% reliable.
Good luck,
Howard

Yes, you did it the old fashioned way, which would work well. You used the low beam circuit to trigger the relay to provide power to the fogs.

This is how I probably would do this if I really wanted to have them; so far I've been putting it off, also waiting for an accessory kit from GM.

Apparently GM would rather have us purchase the Premier trim than have a lot of accessory options.

. You used the low beam circuit to trigger the relay to provide power to the fogs.

On the LT with the HID headlights a second relay is needed since the high beams are not a separate bulb or filament. The high beam circuit intensifies the same filament (?) as the low beams. So a second relay, (normally closed), triggered by the high beam circuit must be added to break the fog light circuit when high beams are used.

unfortunately i just pretty much confirmed a gm ďkitĒ WONT be available, the factory headlight switch only uses 8 wires and there is only 8 wires in the harness on an Lt the switch with the fog light button uses 9 wires. in the past the wiring has always been in the dash to add fogs. i doubt gm would ever sell a kit where you to run wires all the way into the dash very disappointing they are losing out on a big market in accessories here. plenty of people bought the add on kit for the equinox, terrain and cruze before it was a very simple install and a quick reflash and then everything looked factory with no added switches or wires. Fog lights are almost a lacking safety feature here, they really help visibility
