    Oh really?

    you're not supplying power to the fog light from this jumper. a one amp fuse to protect the relay circuit would be sufficient.

    10 amp is the smallest I had in the garage at the time.

    I dont have that relay in the air pump spot. Will my lights still come on by themselves if I use that spot?

    I feel your pain TintedTaco. Went to do the mod today, and I also have the same problem... 2 relays in that box, and no wiring to the other the other open spots. Mine is a 2013 DCLB SR5. Tested a few connections over in the main fuse box which I could get to work, but im trying not to run a cable from the smaller box over to the larger. Unfortunately at this point, I think it may be our only option.

    sub for later. I'm going to hook up my halo lights to the fog lights and then do this mod so they are always on when I press the Fog Light button on in the cab no matter if the high beams or what ever is on.

    Thanks

    I seem to have a different sub panel then you guys. Same year, this is an access cab TRD off road. I'm missing the green and Grey? In the bottom right corner. Looking from above that space is empty aswell

    I just did this mod, instead of un clipping, I stripped the green wire out, hooked a female connector to it, and connected that to an in line fuse (3amp) from the relay, I was able to feed the relay end through the hole on the bottom and tuck away the in line fuse on the bottom of the box, makes it super convenient to disconnect in case of dick head inspections.

    I'm gonna have to use the top green circle in the above pic all my other slots are empty. Will that spot cause them to randomly come on?

    Ok so I did the anytime mod, now I have no day time running lights?!?!
    Used 16ga wire 7.5a fuse, (smallest I had and I have LED fogs) went to "air pump" power spot. Fogs work, but why don't the dtrl? They come on as parking lights dim, and bright as turn signals and hazards.
    Someone smarter than me has bound to have an answer for this?
    I know fogs are stand alone circuit as they're optional.

    Also, what's "air pump"? Is there an option for one for ARB locker or something?

    '12 dbsb 4x4 TRD towing and Entune v6 auto - if any of that helps
