Fog Lights come on by themselves??????????

this may sound stupid, but...on a number of occasions, my fog lights come on by themselves when truck is not running. I've had staff come up to me at work and say my lights are on but when i go out to check on it they are off. I just noticed it today for the first time. it was just sitting in my driveway and they came on....is it a ghost (lol) or am i crazy? or is it a security feature?
Please let me know if you have had a similar experience.

Have you done the anytime fog light mod? Some folks report that theirs come on several hours after the truck is off if you wire it a certain way.

my taco is a US truck that was imported to Canada. In doing so, they had to convert the fogs to a Day Time Running Light as per Canadian Laws. Maybe that is it? i dunno.
thanks for the response

Sounds like a wiring issue.

The ECU will wake up after about 7 hours to do a EVAP system test so if they wired the fogs to a circuit that is live during the test then your lights will be on. The guys with the TRD supercharger hear the intercooler water pump running during the EVAP test.
