1998 Honda CRV

New to me Honda CRV. Will be setting up to tow 4 down. I have a question about hooking up lights. I want to put the extra light socket in rear light housing instead of using diode system. Can someone tell me what kind of light socket I should be looking for? And where to purchase...............

as always, thanks for the help..............ronspradley

I bought the wire and socket setup that blue ox sells but other companies probably sell them. Installed on my 2008 Honda CRV, just sip tied the wires to the brake lines under the car.

I also suggest the use of one of the kits. There are several companies that make and sell them.

If all you're needing is a source for the light sockets, almost any discount auto supply will have them. On my '03, the lens is not removable from the part that holds the socket. For that reason, if yours is the same make sure the light socket you buy requires/mounts in a hole bigger than the bulb you're using. Dummy me had to make a return trip to the auto supply because I missed that fact on the first attempt.

Thanks for the suggestions. I am thinking I will probably purchase one of the wiring kits. That will probably be less expensive for me if I add in the fuel cost for what always turns out to be multiple trips to fetch parts...............thanks again...............ronspradley

I recently bought a 99 CRV and wanted to install an extra light instead of using the diodes. After looking at the light assembly, I decided that there didn't appear to be a decent spot with enough room to put the extra light, so went with the diode pack. Ordered it on line for approx $28 total price. Installation was not too difficult, but running the wires took a little ingenuity.

I use a Brake Buddy, which draws more than 10 amps, which blew the 10 amp fuse the 12 volt accessory socket has, so I did have to modify the circuit for 20 amps.
