As the title states, looking for a H3 connector so that I can hook up my Ltuned fogs. Let me know if you have one, thanks!

You should be able to buy the the 9006 connector and harness at Kragen's or similar. That's where I bought mine in the past. You will just need to cut off your stock harness and then solder/connect the 9006 harness on; pretty simple overall.

if you don't want to cut the car's wiring, just buy the rear fog H3 caps and splice into those

Where could I get that Chado? I thought I could just attach the connector to the foglight and then plug it into the stock harness.

you have an '03

81215-53130 x2 and splice into those with the AutoZone/Kragen 9006 connectors

you can ignore this if you want to hardwire them with the 9006 connectors only, though

Huh, Im really confused. Is the stock set up a 9006? I want to hook up the Ltuned ones to the set up already on the car.

your stock setup is H3. L-Tuned is 9006 according to you. So your best bet is to take my advice :) Unless L-Tuned is H3 also

I thought the stock was 9006. Haha, I was really confused. So I should look for an H3 connector then?

it's not an H3 connector. it's just the connector that the car uses to connect to the H3 fog connector. this is a car specific part. you'll have almost zero chance of finding this for sale. it's not expensive

Ah I see well then I will change my title.
Actually, chado is correct. You can get new connectors, or you can replace the stock harness with 9006 harnesses to fit your LTuned fog lights.

I understand that the LTuned fogs use 9006 bulbs, which means you will either need to get a pair of 9006 harness and plugs, or do what chado is suggesting. I think it's easier to just cut off the stock H3 harness/plug and replace it and it's probably cheaper as well, but some people are worried about the splicing and soldering.

anyone got any input if i'm doing the reverse? i've got an 02 and i'm putting 03 SD fogs in. i'm trying to make a plug-n-play harness so i can put the factory 9006's back in when i sell the car.

i'm gonna give lexus a call and see if they have the harness you mentioned in stock. hopefully if they do they'll let me get a look at it. unfortunately i think it's the opposite of what i need.

i've already got male and female 9006 plugs, i just need the lexus connector that plugs into the 03+ fogs

you'll need to find the wiring that goes from the car to the plugs, probably some long wires will be included unless you can get them separately

damn that's what i was worried about, that wiring is incorporated into the front of the car... i actually did a little poking around under the hood and found that the parking lights in the headlights use the exact same plug (i plugged the harness directly in w/o issue).

found the p/n for the plug, dealership needs to special order them and they're about $11 a pop... if only there was a wrecked IS around i could just cut them off...

ah well, i got a few days to decide before my SD fogs come in. if need be i'll drop the $20 and call it a day.

if anyone is curious, the p/n for the plugs is: 90980-11156 :approve:

thanks for the info man, +rep

I was thinking of swapping the wiring harness with JPLexIS since I traded bumpers with him from OEM to L-Tuned. We're not too familiar with it all, is it easy to swap? Or is the connector the easier way?

does anybody have pictures of these 2 different connectors? (2003+ models H3 and 2001-2002 9906)
