Now I can turn my headlight switch to the running lights/tails and my fog lights will turn on. They still work with the factory switch as well so if I dont want them on they can turn off! Everything seems to be working well.
NO SPLICING INTO THE IGNITION WIRE!
Kudos to you my friend!
You took pin 1 of the Fog relay and connected it to pin #3 of the Towing Tail Relay.
While your fogs will work anytime now... I don't think your tow lights will work if you connected your 7-pin connector to a trailer in that configuration.
You are proving a really good point though. All we're really trying to do is provide 12v to pin #1 of the fog relay.

ShadowFalken, Very interesting observation. If I have some time I'll try with a test light and see. I looked at a diagram where that female spade connector is and it looks like it may be hot all the way back to the fuseblock engine #2 wire for 1GR-FE engine. Take a look at this diagram
if your interested.
I'm glad we're having this discussion because we'll come up with a better method. I never really liked tapping the ignition circuit, it always kind of bothered me--the risk does not equal the reward.
