Thanks for the write up OP!
Most guys garages take time to find shit. Even the organized guys know what I am talking about. It takes 3 minuets to find the easy stuff.

This will work but requires an inline fuse

I used the first one because the empty slot next to the fog relay was empty and had no female plugs.

Really weird quirk the other night at the house, my parkers blinked a few times, I figured the button was being pushed in my pocket, hung the keys up on their hook.
Then about thirty minutes later, my wife says" hey, your lights are doing it again".
But this time it wasn't my parking lights, it was my fogs. They came on, and stayed on. I stood outside in the snow for 20 minutes waiting for them to shut off, nada. Hit the key fob a few times (hell, can't hurt, right?), finally just turned them off at the switch.
Anybody else have this happen?

Hey guys,
I have a 2013 taco. Wanna do this mod, but still a little unsure. Mainly on what type of wire would I need to use to connect the two relays? Sorry no time to search this kinda stuff up right now. Mainly because Im at work right now. Haha. Thanks again.

If you spliced into the green wire then this will happen. The green wire is the fuel pump wire, the fuel pump comes on randomly over a course of time in order to keep your fuel system pressurized. Not sure about your parking lights. I have mine jumped from the towing relay and don't have any problem.

No matter what you have to locate your foglight relay and your towing relay. All the information you need it in the first post regarding wire location or even just a few posts back.

All you need:
16 or 18 gauge wire I believe. (enough to reach between the two relays. )
One female spade connector that goes on the foglight relay.

I did the jump to the towing relay...That's what was freaky about it. There shouldn't be any power when the key is off/ out.

Alright I installed the OME fog lights this weekend, and I want to do this mod. But my truck is the base model 2012 4x4 and I had to add the tow package later so in the fuse box in the engine compartment I don't have any of the relays you guys show in the pictures. Does anybody know how I can do this mod, I can post pics of my fuse boxes it helps someone help me figure out what to do.

Base model is a crap shoot.
SR5 is usually prewired.

Look down into the fuse box where the fuses and relays are to be installed. If you see brass contacts, you are likely prewired. If not, you're on your own, and adding a tow package is going to be a major ordeal.

I just bought a used 2011 Tacoma and it won't pass MD inspection due to fogs lights staying on when I turn on my brights. I'm assuming the previous owner did the MOD but I am wondering if anyone had a suggestion for fixing this to pass inspection.

Thanks!!

And rewired so that I can turn on the fogs whenever the key is in the "ON" position. The fogs will turn on/off independent of any lights being on and will turn off automatically when the IGN is turned off.

You go from Fog Relay Post #1 to Green wire in upper harness inside larger fuse box

New wire route



Used a thin spade male plug and jammed it in the harness with the green wire



IGN ON - no lights



parking lights



With Headlights (stay on with low or high beams)


I screwed something up doing this. I touched the wrong wire under the fog lamp relay. Now I have a bunch of lights on my dash. Abs, traction, and the "!" one. I imagine a fuse is blown somewhere. Any idea which one. All lights are still working. Tried disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery for 10 minutes but they just came back.

Edit, blew IGN #2 inside the cab fuse box.

For any bodies future reference. I tried coming into that fog relay post from underneath to make it cleaner. That will leave the lights on all the time. Which made me start playing around and going outside the directions. And blew the fuse.

question, I have a 2012 and I followed the directions, are you supposed to be able to turn the fogs on and off without your parking lights on? I have to click the light stock up once which turns on my brake lights also and dims everything in the cab, is this right?
