    Pointless post on my part..... I know it has to do with switching a wire from one spot to the other on the PCM if I remember right but thats it. Is your switch still on the center console?

    i thought the fogs came on when you turn the parking lamps on. i thought the mod allowed for your fogs to be on when your parking lamps werent?

    Seems simple enough, that even me, the most un electrically smart person can do it... I can do damn near anything under the hood, or in the car, the rearend, but when it comes to wiring... BLAH!

    you must have done it a different way, with the one posted above, anytime the fog switch is on and the keys are in the "on" position, the fog lights will be on.

    its very simple it should take you about 15 minutes for the avg person. took me about 10 so its fairly simple.

    the only thing is. is the fog lights go on anytime when the switch is on. so make sure to turn it off unless your takin pics or its gettin dark out or youll be buying alot of bulbs.
