Adding Fog Lamps to 2015 TRAX

Hello!! First post here. New owner of 2015 Trax. Want to install fog lamps. I have already ordered the light switch (replacement for dash unit) and front wiring harness. Has anybody ever done this yet??? If not I'll post pics/instructions as I go along. Thanks for the help.

Yes, please do show us the pics along the way. I've done this with other GM vehicles over the years and many have misc parts already installed. Did you order a US Trax light switch or something else? I'm betting the factory wiring harness plugs right in to fog/non fog switches.
Thanks in advance.

Good chance that's the case, GM should have made it with specific plus for the feature as it makes the manufacturing process easier.

Can I ask you what you paid for the switch and harness? Interior harness or engine compartment harness? Also could you please take a picture of the back of the switch? It would be very much appreciated if you can!

Sorry for the zillion questions, I just want to do this myself the most cost effective way I can!

Hopefully he replies but contacting the local GM/Chevy dealer could reveal the details, ring up their parts department.

I saw the switch offered but I didn't see the harness, I think I'm just going to buy the fogs bezzel's and lenses then wire them up using an aftermarket switch.

Replacement is a snap. Open the door below switch. The door has two tabs on the side that push in and the door falls out. The switch is held in place with three small catches that must be depressed by sticking your hand up inside the door hole and pushing/pressing the switch out. Once out the wiring harness comes off and fits the new switch. Push new switch in and replace door. Interior DONE!
