I'm not sure what you'll find behind the light plugs, maybe a harness, maybe not...

The lights are 19.2W/ea @12VDC and come with a standard detachable wiring harness. I'm not going to get into how to wire lights but it's pretty straight forward.

Leaf owners only need the standard 6145, the J model includes some circuity specific to 2012-newer Jeep JK's and the goofiness they do with the headlight/foglight signal.

I have been planning to replace the fog lights in my 2015 with LEDs and now one of my original fog lights has a broken lens. Nissan does not sell replacement glass lenses and a new Nissan light is more expensive than the 6145 so I will be buying Speaker 6145s with polycarbonate lenses. It looks like I can get the 6145J cheaper than the plain 6145--will the J series work with the Leaf or do I need to pay the extra cost for the plain 6145?

I cannot be sure, but I doubt that the wiring harness is there. These lights are low current so it would be relatively easy to run wires and install a suitable switch in one of the blank spots in the switch panel below and to the left of the steering wheel.

Edited to add: The second factory light was a victim of road debris so I have purchased a set of the LED fog lights and will be installing them soon. They draw such low current that I was able to test them with a 9-volt battery when I opened the box. I found some adapters on Amazon that will plug in to the factory wiring harness connectors so I will not need to modify the LEAF's wiring.

I am sorry I don't have a direct link to the adapters I bought. I suggest you search for wiring adapters for H11 light bulbs. You basically need adapters that have pigtail wires and connectors that are the same as an H11 halogen bulb so they plug in like the light bulb. Then you splice the pigtail wires to the pigtail wires that come with the LED fog lights. You need to be careful when searching for adapters because you need the ones that match the H11 bulbs themselves (not adapters that H11 bulbs will plug in to).
