    Still don't know how to quote so forgive me. Derrrrrp.
    Jive, thanks for the help. I didn't disconnect the battery, but I am also not getting any warning lights. It worked or a day. I will double check the connection and then go from there.
    Sloth, I appreciate the help as well. I'll see if any fuses blew but hopefully it's just a loose connection.
    Thanks guys!!

    You'll get it, make sure the relay is seated all the way down. Let us know!

    I did this mod and my fogs work regardless of my light setting but now my headlights are on all the time. Any ideas?

    Just so people know, don't use a quick splice to do this or else your headlights will stay on all the time. Here's my thread about it:

    All good, I think the relay was just loose. We are back in business! Thanks jive.

    After reading this whole thread, I have a headache and am going to bed. I am finding myself jumping around as one person does a post, then another with a whole different goal or truck, than back the the first.....

    So have been doing a copy paste so that when ready, can pull just what is needed.

    I have a 2012 with trailer package, want my fog lights to:

    • Work with the fog light switch
    • Work with Lo/Hi beam
    • Turn on/off like the headlights do, so that I don't walk off and leave them on.
    Which of the threads or posts is the one that does that? is it:

    I have a '12 also & wanted the same operation as you. I used post #154.
    The fogs work with high/low, on & off with headlights & the fog switch still controls them as well.

    If you have the fog light relay located in the sub panel to the right... Run the wire from relay through bottom of little panel box > then straight through bottom of main panel box > then straight into LIGHT GREEN ignition power cord.... You don't need to splice... Just get small slender shape terminal to fit into harness... I forgot wut those little y shaped terminals are called, but I cut one side off so it looked as if it were a single prong terminal... Someone else did it and posted pics but I can't recall who... Good luck!

    *this allows you to use fog lights anytime... W/ or w/o any other lights -dl, pl, low, high... Fogs work independently..

    I think in the '12's the fog light relay moved to the small panel & before it is in the large panel. I think it should work its just that the relays are in different places.
