Don't know if you've seen any of my posts re; fog lights but I too have considered hooking some up to the parking lights, one drawback, they will always be on, when your lights are on. A friend told me about another option, and that was to hook them up to the brights. I realize this wouldn't help as a dtr light, but he said he'd done that on several vehicles and it looked nice. I still am trying to find out where to get the plugs to wire the fogs into the line somehow. Let me know if you do wire yours into the parking lights, and how it works, Thanks.newenglandtitan said:I would love to be able to use my fog lights as DTR lights...but the only real practical way to do this would be to use them with parking lights.

In looking at the service manual, I was wondering if you might convert it to Canada style DTR just by adding a relay under the hood.newenglandtitan said:I would love to be able to use my fog lights as DTR lights...but the only real practical way to do this would be to use them with parking lights.

Exactly what are you proposing? My understanding is that the fog and parking lights are each operated by (1) a microprocessor which, in response to proper positioning of the stalk switches (2) closes a corresponding relay (fog or parking) which (3) closes a circuit to send power through the corresponding fuse (fog or parking). If you jump the leads for the fog and parking relays, won't that turn on the parking lights anytime the fogs are on and vice versa? If you jump the power lead from the fog fuse to the parking fuse, won't that just blow the fuse?giddyup said:Its Much More Simple Than That.
