I've never done it as the DIY looked to be more complicated than I wanted to get into. It would be nice if there was a easy was to do it.

What is this green wire? Is it "hot" all the time, Or just when the ign is on or when the parking lights are on? Just wondering what it runs to and when it gets it's power.

get a female spade connector, connect it to the blue relay as pictured above. you have to bend the post on the relay out in order for this to work.
then just get a quick splice from your local auto parts store, and splice into the green wire pictured above.

ther is nothing to do with a blue wire of any kind.

1) take any color wire you have sitting around cut it approx 8" long

3) Take the other end of your 8" wire and attach it to the BLUE relay

It's as simple as that ^^^^ SUPPPPPPPEEERRRR EASY!
Once you are done, you will laugh at yourself for thinking it was difficult.

I hope that's it. I feel bad now - should of given better pics with more descriptive steps.
Well, if he spliced into the green wire and connected to the blue box, it should definitely be working... I even got this mod right on the first shot, and a drunken monkey can out do me on lots of truck mods!

I did the other way and tapped into the tow relay (if you have the towing package). Fogs get power with my parking lights on.. but to each's own..

Hey that's an idea.....but yes pushed button in and out but nothing. Checked the connections,seems to be ok. Maybe it's the splice, perhaps it didn't make contact. I'll try again, don't want the monkey to one up me

Update: So the root of my problems was the splice. Done,they're working now but I realized that one of my parking light bulbs is out and the lenses are looking hazy,plastic polish? Off to Vatozone I go.....grassy ass fellas!
