Unhappy Prewired for Sports Lights

2005 Baja turbo with leather option: I have a factory set of Sports Lights. I have read that the car is prewired for these lights.

I have the factory switch, relay, etc., all that is needed. What is prewired or anything?

Sorry if I missed an earlier thread on this. I want to install the lights. I do have a complete wiring diagram.

Any simple bumper brackets for these lights as I have two extra lights?

not sure what you're asking here..

Yes all Bajas are pre-wired for the sport lights. That is all you'll need to do is install the switch, possibly a relay and then remove some trim from the bedliner on the right side I think, and the trim that goes around the rear window and brake light to run a wire up there. Then mount lights on crossbars, connect plugs, tada. Not hard, time consuming. You instructions should detail all of this.

Hello,
I went thru all the installation but... I do not have a plug behind the radio.
I have a 2003 baja. Canadian version
here how my center console look like


Looks like the plug I need is for the cargo light... I do have th plug in the back on my 3rd brake light.
Also the relay is already there. I have try to install the light switch insted of the cargo switch but still not working.

Anyone has the same problem?

thanks for your help.

JEFF

The wiring diagram shows the connector hidden back there for the sport lights. Look for blue tape, that's what they wrap optional connectors in. It might just be hard to find, you'll have pull that whole console radio/hvac and cargo lights.

I will look again but that cargo switch did have some blue tape on the wire. but it also had a different connector with kind of a extender cord that was plug to the CARGO SWITCH..

I will try to add picture tommorow.

If I'm not mistaken the 2003 are NOT pre-wired, the Baja became pre-wired in 2004 for the activity light kit!

Hey bilway, It's nice to see another Quebec Baja! is your's yellow?

Black baja in quebec city where are you?
are you a MSC member?

Well the kit that I bought was for 2003. Same for all the instructions.
I have the cable to connect the light near the 3rd break light. so I assume that it is prewire...

What year is yours? do you have the cargo switch located at the same spot in the dash?

Hey I'm in Montreal and Yes I am a member of MSC.
My Baja is Monterrey Grey on silver. It's a 2005 Turbo. I love it! Baja's are really rare around here. I believe I've seen 4 since last year. 1 black/silver, 1 red/silver, 1 yellow/silver and a silver/silver at the dealership this winter.

My cargo lamp switch is not at the same place as yours, mine is near the cruise control and fog lamp switch.

Post come pictures when you have the lights up!

Here some picture...
I had to modified the bracket that hold the light on the light bar as it's not fitting on our bar model.

I also have the tonneau cover made from Snuglid..

btw you may not have to notch the housing as the instructions say, mine had enough clearance in the design already. Just an fyi, check before you cut.

Yeah, that's interesting. My 2003 Baja has the Cargo lamp next to the foglights/cruise control etc off to the left. It had the sport activity lights already installed with the button below the radio. Almost seems like there were different versions of Baja's out there.

For '03 the biggest difference between the sport and the classic model were the classic got leather (like) seats, painted mirrors, and differnet bulbs in the headlights. On a black Baja the mirrors matched so it was harder to tell the difference without looking closely at the head lights.
