97-99 Fog Light Rewire

Tools:

  • Flathead screwdrivers- small and medium.
  • Large Philips screwdriver.
  • Rachet- 10mm sockets.
  • Voltmeter, Voltage light, or Multimeter.
  • Electrical Tape
  • Approx. 3 feet of wire.
  • Wire Taps

Info:
This modification is a very easy process that allows the fog lights to be on with the parking lights. It also allows the fog lights to remain on with the high beams. This process was done on my 1997 Nissan Maxima SE, automatic.

97-99 AE headlights

If you've done the red/clear taillight mod, then you can do the AE Headlights for the 4th generation Maxima. Remove the headlights from the vehicle first off. Take them inside. Take the metal clips off of the Headlight housing with a flathead screw driver. There should be 5 of them. Next, do exactly as with the tails. Heat the oven up to about 250, and put the Headlights in for about 10-15 minutes. Take them out and VERY GENTLY pry the lens from the housing. If you rush this, you'll break the housing.

9004 to 9007 bulb conversion

I wanted to change my wimpy 9004 bulbs to 9007. At first glance the bulbs look identical, but in fact they are quite different. The 9004 bulb has a wattage rating of 45 watts on low beam and 65 watts on high beam, where as the 9007 bulbs have 55 watts of low beam power and 65 watts of high beam power. Already we know that the extra 10 watts are going to help. Differences don?t end there. The socket looks the same but the wiring is different. For a 9004 bulb the terminals are high, low, and ground. For a 9007 they are high, ground, and low.
