Is there provisions for installing rear fog light in a 2nd gen Seinna?

Not on any vehicle made by Toyota for the North American market.

Here is a thread from someone in Latvia who installed a rear fog light on a gen 2 Sienna to make it legal there: https://www.siennachat.com/forum/22...light-other-mods-meet-european-standards.html

Here is my thread about installing a rear fog light on a 2014 Sienna: https://www.siennachat.com/forum/69-mods-projects-gen-3/22049-rear-fog-light-2014-sienna.html

I had to install the wiring and a switch for the rear fog light I attached to the rear bumper cover.

For comment: idea for cheap and quick rear fogs for those 1) with a hitch and 2) who don't mind installing a hitch ficture when needed.

Have been following the rear fog light posts with interest. Our 05 has no provision for rear fogs, but we do have 1) a 2" receiver and 2) 4-wire flat tow connector wiring installed. As such I have been looking at the "hitch mount LED brake lights" such as https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CRE1IVG/

Now the downside for use of this kind of item as a rear fog lamp is that they are probably no brighter than existing tail lamps IN TAIL LAMP MODE.

So my proposed idea is this: take one of these $15.00 LED hitch lamps and rewire it: take the incoming brown wire (taillight) and feed it to the green and yellow leads in the rear light. This way the brighter brake LED's would ALWAYS be ON, better fulfilling the rear fog performance needs. (In fact, I read elswhere that rear fogs should match rear brake lights in intensity.) I'm assuming the even under this scenario the supplied "taillight" power could handle the constant draw of the brake LEDs in the hitch light.

This illumination pattern could likely be confusing under normal conditions so I'd only deploy the hitch fog light when really needed (probably several nights per year at most).

Feedback?

I have wondered if there was a way to wire this lights that go under the tailgate of a pick up on the bottom of my van.

I would love to mount them above my trailer hitch (Toyota's) and below the bumper cover.

Not really sure what you mean by "lights that go under tailgate of a pick up", but I added extra reverse lights to our 2007 at the bottom of the rear bumper cover. I already had most of the wiring in place as I had the van wired up to supply trailer reverse lights.

See post #40 on page 2 of this thread...
