    I got some Hella 500 Fog lights for Christmas that I'm in the process on installing. Far as the wiring goes your supposed to hook them up to your high beam for power. I'm looking at the back of my lights and there's a red/green wire and a red/blue wire. Does anyone know which one is the high beam???

    For power, they should be hooked to the battery.

    Sorry its not for power its for it to send a signal to the relay so that the fog lights turn off when the high beams come on.

    Ah. Well, why not hook it up to a switched "ON" wire, that way you can use them regardless of the high beam?
    Anyway, to answer you, I think the high is the RED and GREEN wire. Black is ground.

    Alright thanks Chris your logic seems right I'm gonna go give it a shot now. I might wire it to an "on" wire so that when I'm offroading I can have all the light that I can get.
