I just bought this 2004 Columbia Edition which comes with factory fog lights. The seller told me he just had something done to fix the fog lights but he's not sure what. So now I have this TJ and the fog lights only work with the brights on. I don't mind them working with the brights, I just wish they worked with the low beams on. Does anyone have any advice for me? Thanks
Just a guess . . find the fog light relay and see if they did something with it. The fog light relay turns the fog lights off when the high beams are on. A common hack is to bend a tab on the relay to let the fog lights stay on with the brights. Maybe the PO tried something like that but got it wrong. ( . . how, I don't know, but it's easy to check!)

Has anybody seen Amir???
When I wired up my aftermarket fog lights on my TJ I spliced them directly in with the high beam wires since they'll probably be on too if I'm on a trail at night. The guy's mechanic probably did the same with those.
Having the fog lights and the high beams on at the same time is kind of useless. All the glare you'd get off the fog or what ever you're trying to see under would negate any benefit from the fog lights.
Fog lights should be on only with the low beams.

Update: whoever rewired the headlights screwed everything up. The wires in the bottom of the TIPM were all in the wrong place. Starightened it out and now everything works as it should. Thanks for the help guys.
