Nope not according to mine. Got any Pics of how you went about it? Mine only requires the key to be in the on position, no other lights need to be on.

I followed the diagram on the previous page. I'll take some pics today at lunch. Does your green light come on (fog light) the dash or is that reserved for when your lights are all the way on? Hmmmm I cant remember if I tested with the key in the on position, I'll give that a shot and report back.

So I followed your instructions and no dice. I turned the key to "On" and pressed the fog light button, no lights. I then left the key in the "On" position and turned the light stock one click to engage the parking lights, that's when the fogs kicked on. couldnt get any pictures of how I did the mod (at work in nice clothes ) so I'll have to get pics later today and or just try it again.

A lot of states have annual safety inspections that they need to pass to renew their tags.
It's on the books in California, but it's an "on demand" thing.
In the 60s and 70s, CHP would set up roadblocks all the time and pull inspections. If you got tagged, the car had to be repaired and signed off by a certified headlight/brake mechanic (most gas stations were certified).
If you passed, you got a CHP sticker for your windshield so you wouldn't be bothered the rest of the year.



The law is still on the books, and these certified stations still exist.

I haven't seen a roadblock since I was probably 8 years old, but the law is still on the books. Used to be fun out riding with mom to see who would be the first to spot the cops at the side of the road having their "pow-wow" before setting up a checkpoint.
They'd check your headlight alignment to make sure they were aimed properly, brake check (not sure how they did it), and sometimes they'd have a speedo check machine to verify your speedo calibration. I only remember mom getting caught in one once when I was very young. Funny that my "poor" friends parents always seemed to have the inspection stickers on their windshields and we never did. I have a feeling there was a lot of profiling going on in selecting who they would pull into the checkpoint. A current-model Buick didn't draw much attention from anyone other than women looking to hook up with a doctor

Likely the roadblocks would jam traffic too badly today... that, and all of the cars they'd have to tow because of drivers without licenses or insurance.

This is the version that I tried. It only works when I have the marker light, low beam or high beam on. I might try the other version later , but for now I'm happy with this one.

The mod I used was previously posted by lextech...pull the fog relay and bend tab #1 flat...connect a 22g-18g female blade connector...take short length of 18g wire and splice and crimp/mate with the female blade connector connected to tab #1 on the fog relay, re-install the fog relay...then take the other end of the 18g wire, splice, and insert the spliced end of wire into socket #3 of the towing tail relay...re-install the towing tail relay...this mod took all of five minutes...I also swapped out my stock fogs for the Nokya Arctic Hyper Yellow fogs...I'll post some illuminated pics tommorrow...also, remember to swap out the rubber gaskets from the factory fog bulbs to the Nokya's so that they fit properly!!

The fog light mod is great...

fogs come on with parking lights...
fogs come on with headlights...
fogs come on with high beams...
the mod this way is "fuse protected"...
I did notice that the green fog on illumination on the dash does not illuminate when the fogs/parking lights are on, but when you switch to headlights it illuminates...

great mod...fool-proof...no splicing...or having to remember if you turned off your fogs as with the other fog light on anytime mods...this way the fogs turn off with the factory timer off light switch...
Is this the way that works the best for an 05? without the fogs coming on every 4 hours?

Also, I assume this doesn't allow the fogs to come on when NO lights are on?

I know this is an older thread, but I'm looking to do the trailer hitch method. When I run the wire to the trailer hitch relay, how do I plug it in?
