Fog lights don't work

Bulbs & fuse are good, what would be the cause. Bad relay? Please help.

I had this problem. Pissed me off. They only work when the headlights are on low beam. I know, dumb, but that is how they are wired I guess. Sucks. I know of a mod to wire them on with the high beams, but none with them wired to be on without the headlights on low beam.

That's just BS. I can run my fogs whenever I want. The mod is good for any setting. This is with parking lights only.

Ok so maybe I don't have a problem. I just need to see if they come on when my low beams are on, right? If they work I will look into the fog lights on whenever I want mod.

Check if they work with the low beams on. If they do and you want them on whenever you would like, do the fog light anytime mod. The write-up can be found in the cheap/free mod thread.

I want to do this mod. My question is this... The relay terminal is bent at a right angle and connected to the wire, so this terminal is unnecessary in the operation of the lights??

Thanks for any help you can give.

I tried to do the fog light mod and did it just like it said and my fog lights wouldn't work at all...(lights on or off) so i had to put it back to normal and they worked fine. Any thoughts on that?

When I did the mod the other day I used a quick splice on the green wire. It worked for a bit then the fog lights would not come on at all. I found the splice had cut the wire and it had an intermittent connection, I could wiggle the green wire and the lights would come on. I removed the splice and soldered the connection and all is well now.
