    Sorry to post another fog question, but i want my fog lights to be on at all times when my park lights are on (park, lowbeam, highbeam). I have factory fogs and the bulbs, wire, relay, fuse....etc. btw i have a 4cyl. so it is NOT prewired. So can i tap of the positive side of the park light and run that wire to the 85 side of the relay and not have a switch inside at all? all input and pictures will be much appreciated:D

    You surely can. I wired mine with the control voltage of the relay powered by the positive side of the parking lights, with a switch breaking common after that. You can just forget about the switch and do it that way- it's fairly simple.

    I attached the PDF for the wiring schematic. In the factory version they use the low beams for the relay coil, just use the parking lights like I did.
