about those rear fogs. How do I go about getting them to lessen the intensity of the light????? I don't want rear FOG lights, but rather just an extension of the parking lights at the dimmer brightness. I have everything setup to work as the fogs, but don't care for the brightness of the lights. I don't really care for it being bright and out of place, it's annoying to people driving behind me and it's really pretty unfunctional in the mid-west.
So... any idea how to step down the intensity of the light? I couldn't find lower wattage bulbs.
You don't need a lower wattage bulb, if you wire it to the lights in yellow. These bulbs are on when you turn on your lights, but when you step on the brake they do not increase in intensity. I don't mind the fog lights getting brighter when I step on the brake, because if someone is following me close enough to be bothered by them, that's there fault.
So... on that subject... how best do you get the wires to that location!? When "testing" I just ran a wire to the lights for the license plate. I'll try to run it down to the area circled in yellow and hope that works out. Does it simply send a lower voltage to that light or something??? Curious how that works. Seems like it would just send +12 to the light when it wants the light on, the light in particular would illuminate at different brightnesses depending on the wattage. Thanks.
