    Hi,

    That's an amazing project car and I'm quite surprised he got it to work :)

    I tried to make a compact translation for you, here it is:

    1. Replace the original switch with one that includes a switch for the rear fog lamp. You can buy this at any Ford dealer but they German guy found one on eBay from a Ford Mondeo MK5. Part number is DG9T-13D061-FCW and it is identical to the version for the Mustang except for the part number.

    2. Both the new light switch and the Body Control Module need additional plugs. On the light switch C205 # 2 and on the Body Control Module C2280B # 8 and C2280C # 25. You can buy these at mouser.com. The cables need to be modified (wrong diameter). Here are Mouser's part numbers:

    C205: 26 AWG 2098762-3 or 7

    C2280B: 26 AWG: 571-1924955-5 or 7

    C2280C: 18-20 AWG: 33012-3022 or 33012-2022

    Since Mouser is designed for larger order quantities, ordering 10 terminals each was relatively expensive.

    3. The wiring connections:

    * C205 # 2 to C2280B # 8

    * C2280C # 25 to the rear fog lamp

    5. Forscan programming of the Body Control Module:

    726-28-01 xxxx x*xx xxxx Rear Fog Enable Cfg: 0=disabled --> 1=enabled

    726-24-01 xxxx xxxx *xxx Interior Lighting (IL) / White Lighting (WL) / Backlighting LED (BL) / Rear Fog Lamp (RFL) - Circuit DTC (Normal/Inhibited): 5=IL norm, WL inhib, BL norm, RFL inhib --> 4=IL norm, WL inhib, BL norm, RFL norm

    6. Forscan programming of the IPC (instrument panel cluster) so that the indicator light is also displayed:

    720-02-02 xxx * xx Rear Fog Indicator Cfg: 0 = disabled -> 2 = enabled

    The body control module is a plastic box with fuses, connectors and electronics in it. The way I understand the German guy's description is that of the 3 new connectors you have to buy 1 goes on the back of the new light switch and two go into the BCM. The car has 2 BCM's, the main one is located behind the passenger lower cowl trim panel, and BCM-B is located in the trunk on the passenger side behind the side trim panel. s-l1600.jpg

    The connector C205 is the one at the back of the light switch. All the C2280? connectors are the ones going into the BCM. Have a look at the attachment for the different connectors.

    Offtopic, but here in Switzerland we allow the OEM red sequential turn signals, I always get weird looks when I turn them on somewhere in in Europe. Been stopped by the cops a few times now because of the turn signals and the front amber marker lights :giggle:

    Hi, does anyone have similar pictures as below including the Pin numbers for connectors C2280B and for C205 ? I'm working on the fog light mod for my 2017 Mustang. Thanks!

    Here you are...

    ps: This is for MY16 but I guess MY17 is the same (maybe the coloring are different).
