USDM vehicles were not equipped with a rear fog light from the factory. They only have a plastic cap covering up the center of the rear bumper. No lamp, mounting bracket, mounting hardware, or wiring.
This OLM lamp includes the required parts to mount it to your USDM vehicle.
2 Modes easily switched from driver seat. 15 blinks each time the brake pedal is pressed, and then you have your traditional style brake light.
NOTE: To turn off the blinking, step on the brake and then switch the lights (parking) on and off three times.

Crosstrek QC Harness
This harness speeds up the install process for the JDM OEM rear fog lamp, SubiSpeed F1 Fog Light, GCS Rear Multifunction Light, and GCS CS Style Rear Fog / F1 Brake Light. The stock wiring harness in the Crosstrek can be hard to crimp as the area is tight. Also owners who wish to return their setup to stock at any point and time can do so easily with this harness.
The harness has OEM style connectors on both ends which allows you to install this in-line with the factory wiring. 3 or 4 extensions (depending on model) allow you to connect the aftermarket fog / F1 lights.
Includes 1 harness (only 1 required per vehicle).
Plug and Play Harness WRX / STI
This harness speeds up the install process. The stock wiring harness in the WRX / STI can be hard to crimp as the area is tight. Also owners who wish to return their setup to stock at any point and time can do so easily with this harness.
Plug and Play Harness Is Included.
The harness has OEM style connectors on both ends which allows you to install this in-line with the factory wiring. 3 extensions allow you to connect the aftermarket fog / F1 lights.
Black - Ground (-) [connect to black wire on the F1 lamp]
Red - Parking / Running Light (+) [connect to blue wire on the F1 style lamp]
Yellow - Brake Light (+) [connect to red wire on F1 style lamp]
If you want to wire this so that it only comes on with the fog lights you'll find yourself using a pretty long run of wire.
We've made a quick connect kit which will split the wires to the passenger side fog light. Just run the wire under the driver's side fender liner, into the vehicle, and along the door sills back to the trunk of the vehicle. The insulated connectors will be placed on the F1 light harness and extension. Just connect them together and you'll have a functioning rear fog light.
Includes splitter and extension with two pairs of connectors. The plug for the female end is not pre-attached so that the wires can easily be run through grommets in the firewall area. To purchase this addition, click here.

The bumper cover does not need to be removed in order to install this product. Simply undo the fasteners at the bottom of the bumper cover so you can gain enough access to knock out the factory plastic cap.
We highly recommend covering the lens of the new fog light casing with painter's tape or something similar during installation. This will prevent scratches while you maneuver it into position.
Our video will help your through the installation process, but please note the wires are different on this model vs the video. For reference, the OEM tail light wiring is as follows:
Black Wire - Negative aka Ground (wire to black wire on the new harness)
Brown Wire - Brake Light Positive (wire to red wire on the new harness)
Black Wire w/ White Stripe - Fog Light Positive (wire to green wire on the new harness)
If you use the fog light extension harness, the negative and fog light wires will be supplied by that harness. You will only use the OEM tail light harness for the brown wire (brake light positive).
You can wire the lamp as a solid brake light only. You would do this by connecting the fog light wire (green) on the lamp to the brown wire on the OEM brake light wire (brown). To make this only an F1 light and not run always at night, just connect the fog light wire (green) AND brake wire (red) to the brown wire on the OEM brake light wire (brown).
While many states allow brake lights that flash and then turn solid, some do not. Please refer to your local laws pertaining to this feature.
It is not required that you hook up the brake light wiring. You can run the product as a rear fog light only.
