    6spd Shift Knob, K&N drop in, Fog light mod, rescue Lights. Aftermarket headlights 6000k hid. 3000k hid fog lights, 2011 grill, de baged tail gate blackened side decals.
    Ive had the fog light mod done for a while now and have had this problem since day one, if i leave the button in the ON position randomly at odd times through out the day and night the lights will just come on by themselves. Battery hasnt died YET but i was just wondering if this has happened to anybody else?

    Guys, click the link in my signature, it leads to a couple ways of doing it without this problem, and is scary simple. Scroll through the thread, others have made it even cleaner! Continues to improve.
