    2010 equinox adding fog lights

    Hello, new here, ordered a new equinox, should be here in a couple weeks, wondering if any one has had any sucess adding factory fog lights, I ordered a lt1 and really want the lights versus the giant black fillers, found a sight that has them, thought about ordering one, making sure they fit. Only $35 I really dont care if they work or not, brobably will wire in at some point.

    A GM dealer will install it and since it is a GM part, can add it as a part of your warranty. But you will need to ask.

    My dealer said they would be $700, but could be installed.

    Re: 2010 equinox adding fog lights

    I'm considering buying a 1LT and am curious about adding fogs as well. In the interior, where is the factory switch for turning the fogs on/off? Is it on a steering column stick or does it have its own switch on the dash somewhere?

    Thanks,
    Robert

    In my 2LT, the fog light switch is a rotating band integral with the turn signal stalk.

    dont go to the dealer to install stuff for you, warranty is good but not worth it.

    i just got my father a set of foglights for his 2010 equinox from blinglights.org

    they work real nice and i got them for real cheap. im not sure if they still have this but i used the code BL15 and got 15% off. and i also bought a set of fog lights for my 07 dodge charger and because i spent over $100, i got $20 off. i mean, they arent factory fog lights, but they look nice, perform well(if not better) and i got them at a fraction of the cost... cant go wrong with that.

    The same kit is $89.77 or best offer plus free shipping at ad id 3174866. I too would like to know how easy it is to install the kit. My low beams are crappy and the extra lighting would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: 2010 equinox adding fog lights

    I did get mine installed, have not wired yet, I did order the bezels through gm, and then ordered OEM replacement lights, they fit numberous vehicles, most common, a 2008 Malibu. they snapped rate into the moulded housing that is part of the bumper cover, behind the black covers.

    before going this route, I did order the bling light kit, same as above, and they are nothing like the factory, and you still need the chrome bezels, there was no way of mounting without drilling or doing something along that lines, called the company and they wanted me to glue pvc fitting onto the vehicle to house the lights, thank god they took them back. The OEM replacements I got of ebay for $95 and they are a projection style exactly like the factory, the others were just a blue shaded reflector housing.

    Thanks for the feedback. I don't want lights that look cobbled on. I guess I'll have to follow your example and get the GM bezels and replacement lights. When you finish the wiring, could you let us know how difficult it is and where you located the switch.

    Re: 2010 equinox adding fog lights

    I too am interested in adding fog lights to my 2010 Equinox LS and am curious on how others have wired them in.
    I'd also like to add roof rails if at all possible. I think the LS looks a bit out of proportion without the roof rack rails and don't undertand by Chevy decided to leave them off the 2010 LS. They are on all the 2009 and earlier LSs I've seen.

    I'm talking about ad id 3174866 i made a best offer for $80 with free shipping and they accepted. the only problem with these is that the chrome bezel isnt included, but i bought the bezels separately online for like $35 each and they look nice. I like the blue tint it has, it goes nicely with the silver color that my father has. also it seems to be a lot brighter than the stock 35w kit.

    i have other products from them, i installed their LED Strips onto my headlights on my Mazda6. made the headlamps look like the audi day time running lights lol
