Thanks for the pic; for those of us that don't quite see the light (!) with wiring, your pic IS worth a 1000 words!

ps I found the relay, but I'm not sure which pin to join to the frame. What about just taping up the solenoid? Or is it taping open the solenoid??

So if I just modify the relay... will my lows and fogs stay on?

When your highs are on your fogs are off, but the fogs will still work when just your lows are on.

Wire your fogs with a separate circuit. The switch on your dash controls your BCM, then the BCM controls the relay for your fogs. I haven't figured a way around it with out just putting them on another circuit, but it can be done.

The kit includes the relay that will allow the fogs to work with the highs and lows. But, you need a switch from them to turn them off if you don't want them on all the time your lights are on.

If my highs are on... I want all 6 on... if my highs are off I want all 4 on and to retain OEM function.

Will the Mr. Tailights kit do that for me?

You will not retain OEM function without the extra switch from Mr. Taillights. The fogs will be on anytime your lights are on without the switch. You will not be able to shut the fogs off without it.

Hmmm... I might just do the jumper mod so that when the highs are on the 4 lights are on, but then when the lows are on I have normal function.

I would check that mod again. I seemed to remember that it only affected the high beams and low beams, not the fog lights.

I could be wrong though.
