Fog lights on with high beams?
 
Is there a way to get the fogs on with the high beams? And also Just the fog's by themselves with no onther head lights? Just wondering. I figure someone might have figuered a trick or way to do it.

Heck yeah man it takes about 30 seconds, all you do is go under your hood and open your fuse box and pull the fuse in the middle thats closest to you and bend the #1 tab back, and plug it back in and your done:wavey:

Could you explain that better? I went to the fuse box under the hood, I see two fuse's one is square the other just a 20 amp fuse for fogs. Which one is it? I tried to pull the square one out, but its pretty tight. Did not want to break anything tonight.

ok yours might be behind the glove box its the relay (Fog light relay) on the right I beleive, pull it out and put some muscle in it, it will be tight, then find pin #2 they are marked you just have to look close and bend it back around the side of the fuse so you can plug it in without it making a connection

forgive me for sounding like a smart ass, but in my understanding of electricity, if you bend the tab back on a fuse, then it doesnt work. are you talking about a relay?

wavebacktothetj 03-14-2009 09:47 PM

yes it is a relay

daanbc 03-14-2009 09:50 PM

Yeah it's behind the glove box. I just did it! Took me a whole minute! It's the relay on the right, and the #2 pin is the one you bend. THANKS!!! Now I can have just the fogs, or the highbeams and fogs. This along with the mod of taking that little piece of metal out of the fog to make them brighter, are excellent.

If you are in an area thar requires "safety inspections" this will cause the vehicle to fail.... keep a spare relay

I think the inspection is based on what state your in. I know in PA it all depends on the county.

By the way, N39 your sig is awesome.

a fuse cant make you fail it doesnt cause any codes

pyro 03-15-2009 02:15 AM

but the manner in which your headlights work or dont work can cause you to fail

I'm curious about this . . . is there a link that walks you thru the process?

All I did was remove the three star shape screws that hold the front bulb in the housing of the fog. Disconnect the bulb, Take the bulb out by the wire=don't touch the bulb itself. Take needle nose pliers and bend the metal tab that's inside bulb. It breaks off REAL easy. Then pull in out. Put the bulb back in, connect the plug=wires. The srew the three screws back in and your done. The fogs are much more brighter. But they are still not focused to a point.

I got busted when I modded my old Ram with the fogs here in Virginia
