    Are you talking about wiring it so it works like the OEM fogs (only come on when a switch in the dash is on AND the low beams and shut off when you turn the high beams on). This can definitely be done with a relay. Run fused power from the batter to the relay, there will need to be 2 switches on the relay, one from the switch on the dash and the other from the headlight wire (you'll need to splice this into the 'hot' wire that powers the low beams). What this will do is make it so the switch in the dash will need to be 'ON' and the low beams will need to be on in order for your Hellas to work. Make sure the power for the fogs is not being drawn off the low beams.

    If you want the Hellas to turn on everytime you turn the lights on, use a simplier relay and you'll only need to splice the wire powering the low beams and run fused power from the battery, no switch in the dash. It's a little confusing to write out but I hope this helps and good luck.
