Fog lights on with parking lights?

Please feel free to forward me if this has been answered before, but I couldn't find anything.

I have a 2010 4-door with stock fog lights. I noticed that the only time the fog lights are functional is when the headlights are also on. I wish that you could have the fog lights on with just the parking lights. Has anyone figured out a way to easily do this? Thanks!

Re: Fog lights on with parking lights?

Splice into the + and - wires that connect the running lights.
Run wires from those down to the + and - off the fog lights. When you locate the + and- off the fog light connector measure back from the connector and 4-5 inches and cut you wires leading to the fog lights there. Once you cut your wires cap and tape your factory fog light wires that lead to the relay 9 that is the wires you just cut. Just tuck them up and zip tie them away incase you want to revert back if you sell the car. Now the wires you have run from your running lights down to rour fogs connect the + from the running to the + of the fog. and the - from the running to the - of the fogs. When you turn on your running/parking lights the fogs should fire right up. you may want to up your fuse in your fuse box a couple amps up in the turn signal.

That stuff coming out of your HUGE chrome exhaust you have mounted at an angle isn't power..It's Rice!!!
