Opt 7 Fogs

Ok. Just tried and install the opt7 fogs in my 2015 Altitude. The install and getting to the fogs is a piece of cake. First plugged in capacitors, nothing worked. Then added the flux. One side worked the other nothing. Both bulbs did work in one of my combo installs. At the very end nothing worked at all. I toggled the fogs on and off and everything. I tried every combo on each side and ultimately only one side worked then my last try nothing worked at all. So back they go!

Re: Opt 7 Fogs

I had the same problem. The connector cable for one of the sides is defective. OPT 7 mailed me a connector and another flux capacitor, no questions asked. Be patient. Plus you should have checked/posted in the other thread,

Up to you. I've been through that.

You most likely have a bad connector and you got so flux0r3d that you forgot which combo works. In my case it was the long connector, the bulbs were fine.

Re: Opt 7 Fogs

First, put one of your old fog lights back and establish that they work, i.e. you did not burn a fuse. They you're gonna have to pretend you are at the eye doctor. Do you see better with 1 or 2 ? A or B ?

Label your cables 1 and 2 and your flux capacitors A and B.
With an OEM fog light working, assemble the LED connectors in series, as instructed. Then change just one component at a time, going through all the combinations. Once you hit a working combo, change nothing but the bulb, to rule that out. Then continue to diagnose the culprit.

Good luck. I'd give you a hand but New York is a tad far.

Yes, I did that. I did establish that both bulbs work, original fogs are in and working. At the very end both did not work. I'd rather send them back and hopefully they will test what is wrong. Or I go with another company.

Re: Opt 7 Fogs

Ive done the hid dance many times. everyone says there s*** works. forget opt7. go with the ddm tuning. get the ddm plus canbus hid kit. do yourself a favor and go with the 3500k (yellow) the things go through the fog and snow like no other and looks great (imo).

this kit is a NO FAIL! unlike xenondepot and opt7!

Re: Opt 7 Fogs

they have it all. halogens, hids, the whole deal. and they're less expensive than the competition, and they're better. the hid kit is only $90!

Thank you. It really is ridiculous I spent an hour and a half trying to do a five minute job

Re: Opt 7 Fogs

I have a 2014 Grand cherokee and installed the OPT7's with no need for the capacitors ...I bought the opt 7's for my 2015 durango and when i installed them I had some problems getting them to both light up
with no capacitors they would both light up but when I put it in gear one would go out...so I put the capacitors on ...after that...when put into gear the other light would go out ...

so I settled on having a capacitor on one side but not the other...and now they both work fine...been running this way for 2-3 months at this point..maybe you should try putting one cap on?

Re: Opt 7 Fogs

Emailed OPt7 yesterday for help and/or return and still no answer from them. I knew I should have gone through amazon.

Is this the DDM kit for the fogs?
