Yes, I'm bored again. I want to rig my fog lights to come on when I turn just the parking lights on. I was going to just tie them to the power wires for the front marker lights, but I don't want them blinking lane changes.



Can someone tell me how?

most people will smack me for saying this, but you could always tap into the parking light wire fuse...

i was gonna do this to mine too, it looks like you can jumper it at the cpu, in effect you would have daytime running lights. www.fc3s.org has the manual-->89fc-->section 15. i havent done it to mine yet but it looks easy

No offense, but people who drive around with fog/driving lights on when they aren't completely necessary are annoying. I hate it when some jackass blazes my eyes with those things. By all means, if you want to do it, go for it, but you may not be making many friends as you drive.

I hardly think the factory fog lights are blazing, I think he wants to do it for looks when its not quite dark out yet and he just wants a little bit of light.

Here in New York, the law states that your auxilary lights cannot be brighter then your headlights, which means 55 watts, so by law, those lights cannot annoy people.

Yeah, I'm not worried about blinding anyone. I don't have million btu diamond cut hyper ricer lights. I just want it for looks like rob said. I think it'd look cool to see a black fc driving down the road at dusk with just the parking/fog lights on.
