It was frustrating to search this, considering the 3 letter limit...


is there any easy way to have it so fogs are always on? I know its simple to push a button, but I was just curious... Im not all that great with wiring so i didnt want to go messing around with it.. anyone have any success?

someone once recommended if you want to do a search on something with less than 4 letters, add an asterisk (*) at the beginning or end of the short word.
did you try that?

search for "fog" by using "fog*" however this is a worthless search because it will return every post with fog in it, most of which will not have to do with having them on all the time.

A better search would be "fog* AND always" or something like that.

Beyond that is it foggy where you live all the time?

a) you'd probably have to disconnect them from your corner lights so they run straight off the switch. you may need a relay, not sure on the wiring system for our fogs.

b) it's totally unnecessary for the fogs to be on with the brights. they will be useless and just draw more power

im guessing you dont want them for functionality really but mainly for asthetics so just answer his question if you can and dont just give b/s remarks unless you want to comment that you like the idea...

I like your idea, and i hope someone answers this soon

I think it is illegal to have more than two pairs of lights on at the same time. That's the reason why whenever you turn on your high beam, your fogs turn off.

I repeat the question. I'm just curious, seen it once before, wanted to take some pictures of the car like that. Not actually drive around with all of them on.
