    So that I can really have you rack your memory - any idea what size those connectors are? I'm thinking .110, I drove all over town looking for some with no luck. Did this hold up well? Sorry if I'mbeating a horse others have left dead...

    Thread revival!

    Question, instead of running the wire from the fog relay to a scotch lock or blade terminal to the light green ignition wire, couldn’t you just run the wire from the fog relay to an add-a-circuit on an ignition fuse?

    @Sleipnir any input on that idea?

    Edit: I see a few pages back someone did do an add-a-circuit but just curious on why that’s not the common no-splice way to do it?

    Okay Everyone here is my Anytime Fog Light MOD done the easiest way I think possible. Literally 5 min start to finish.

    As you know from reading others on here, there is no simple way without splicing wires or tapping into the wire port until now!

    This will allow you to have the foglight on any time. The only catch is that even when the ignition is off, the foglights will still be able to be turned on unlike the other method which requires the ignition to be on. Do not leave then on and drain your batteries....especially if your not running LED's

    This is 100% reversible and no wires are cut! Only the one tab on the foglight relay is bent!

    You will need to purchase one of these for 10$ on Amazon
    ATM Add-A-Fuse (Same Function as Bussmann BP/HHH) ATM Fuse Tap
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007FFG5YI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1



    Step 1: Remove the Fog like relay and bend back the tab as shown.

    Step 2: Cut off the end of the add a fuse which is meant for a wire crip and instead crip on a general plug that will attach to the fog light relay metal part that we bent over earlier

    Step 3: Pull out the horn fuse, put 2 10 amp fuses in the add a fuse slots and then re-insert this into the horn fuse slot. Then attach the end of the wire to the fog light relay tab that we bent earlier and you will be all done.

    Disclaimer, someone did this by attaching the 10 amp fuse off of the EFI circuit. I tried this and it made the truck run rough and turned on the check engine light, which is why I moved to the horn fuse.

    @UnrestrictedPilot what 10A fuses are you using? The ones in the stock slot don't have deep enough teeth and these 10A's I had in the garage have teeth that are too wide.

    Any assistance will be appreciated!

    Oh...and does this Denso Relay only control the Fogs? My slot in your pic says "AI VALVE"
    I have a 2013 4x4 SR5. I do see a slot with a 15A fuse labeled "FR FOG"

    Thanks everyone!!

    So I do not have the original box the fuses came in to reference but i do remember getting them from either an auto parts store or walmart that carry the general automotive fuses. Please let me know if you need any more help. I looked and could not find a name or identifier on the fuse unfortunately.

    Ok. Thank you!

    Do you know the name of the Denso Relay you tapped into and bent the blade? I appreciate it.

    is your truck a 2013 like your username says? If it is you may have to look at the posts that are specific for those years since it’s a little different but on my fuse box it’s says it a fog light relay
