Will this work on 2019 base model outback?
NO! I ordered the 2018 fog light kit assuming it would work on my 2019 base model and found the intended location for the supplied switch is already occupied by the “eyesight off” switch.
I am still struggling to get my kit working but am having to deal with several issues. When I get it going I’ll publish the mods I had to make, but for right now it is NOT plug and play to put the 2018 kit in the 2019 base. Save your $200+.
The bulbs themselves fit perfectly in the empty holes, and the wiring harnesses are there and wired correctly. The supplied relay fits correctly in the empty slot for it in the under hood relay and fuse box.
The problems are:
1. the new switch location is already occupied in the 2019 base.
2. The existing fog light wiring harness for the switch requires a little mod to plug into the new switch.
3. After fitting the existing harness to the new switch and mounting the switch in another blank spot in the panel, the switch does not pick up the fog light relay.
When I pick up the relay by jumpering, the fog lights come on, but I’m going to have to troubleshoot to see why the fog light switch doesn’t do it.
I think I have a handle on it, but will say no more until I get it working.
