Fog Lights Without Headlights

78 posts in this topic

Courtesy of Ukie from Evo X forums. I recently did this and it works great. I would recommend running HID fogs if you want to do this since they run cooler. This is not DRL fog light MOD your fogs will be on all the time when you start the car all your other lights will work as normal. There will be 10sec delay when you turn off the car and then the fogs will turn off. Use a volt meter to find the empty 12v slot.

so first thing youll need to do is go to the store and pick up a fuse jumper wire(see pic 1) then ull have to remove the factory fog light fuse/relay and plug in the fuse jumper (see pic 2) then i took my volt meter and found an empty spot that had 12v when the key was turn(see pic 3) and thats it the spot i picked is nice cuz it has a delay when you turn the car off the fogs will still stay on for about 15 sec.. ive been running this for bout 1yr and havent had an issue yet

Youtube vid, original link and pictures are in my progress thread and its super easy i bought mine from pepboys for like $5.00. Yes they will be on all the time im not worried i have an HID kit they run cooler and longer than halogen. The person who did the write has been running this set up for over a year with no issues.

Here is the link to the original thread on EvoX

oh snap Carter you did it? sweet man

I find it funny that people have been flipping out for like 2 years and snipping and spicing wires for their fogs light when all they had to do was this. This is why i wait to do **** because there is usually another option that does require mutilating your wiring.

Will the fog lights turn off when you put your highbeams on? (its a law in PA)

No they will not turn off if you want that to happen you are going to do some splicing. Or you can get Jrox's bypass and swap the plugs for the lows and fogs
