Maybe a Stupid Question?

Is it possible to run a set of 24V fog lights on our trucks. They have to run on 24V only. I am sure I would have to run a seperate wiring harness of course, but is it even possible to do it?

the whole truck system is 12 v. batts in parallel. not series. to get 24v, you gotta go from pos to neg to pos to neg. one wire on pos on one bat and one on neg on the other batt.

and for that it will need to be a custom harness.

Can it be done? YES Will it be easy? NO! Either an entirely seperate wiring harness to series the batteries together or wire in some type of step-up transformer

The large majority of wiring will handle a 24v system ok, but your sensors will be off because they are set to run on a 12-14v system. So for the 10v over all the sensors are going to read higher due to the higher power. Like your FICM is going to be getting a lot more power highly increasing the chance of a burnt up FICM. Think of your sensors like a light, on a 12v battery they are bright on 24v they are a lot brighter and hotter. I would stay far away from making the whole truck 24v with custom cables, maybe try a step convertor only.
