Default Driving lights

I have a 2012 and the wiring is in the plastic bumper for driving lights. I put a bulb in the socket. Now how do I get them to turn on? I still have to get the housings.

On the older altimas you had to get a different headlight stalk that had the fog light switch on it. Not sure if this is the same for the frontier or not.

If you have the wiring and the housing already its probably something like pull out on the stalk. If you added those bits you'll probably need a stalk.

The plug for the light is tucked in behind the cap in the bumper. Havent come up with a solution to get power to the plug. Guess I should look for a fuse first

Going to see if I can find another stem in the junk yard. Seems that is the best way to get power to them

SO on my 2007 i too have the harness for factory fogs.. But because it was not an installed option i did not receive the stalk and lights.. You will need to source the stalk that has the fog light option(little piece that turns on the lower portion of the stalk)
Direct swap and she should work

I bought an aftermarket kit because it was cheaper to buy new housings/bulbs/and harness then it was to source a new stalk lol

This is everything.. switch even pops in to the lower dash where you should have a few blank rectangle spots
