    I am interested in the fog anytime mod and I totally understand the mod but it seems that everyone does this with a switched on 12v wire on with ignition. I would like to do this but instead of a constant ignition ckt, use the parking light ckt so the fogs would work ONLY when the parking lights are on. That would enable parking/fogs, low beam/fogs, and high beam/fogs. Does anyone know what wire is the trigger for the parking lights? The only reason I am thinking this is I would rather see the fogs on with my parking lights if I forget to turn them off than just the fogs on without parking lights. Anyone have any suggestions or input on this idea? Thanks in advance, Jimmy

    I thought the green wire made the fogs work anytime the ignition was on? Maybe I'm confused:confused:

    I think maybe this is what you're looking for.

    I performed the green wire mod on my Tacoma and it works great for me. I prefer that the fogs go out when the ignition is turned off accessory.
