Lighting Question?

Installed some HIDs on the Foci, Now both my Dodge and Ford have HIDs lol

Noticed that when I switched to the highs the fogs went out and they did not come back on right away. So leads to me to ask is there an actually working fog light mod for the focus?

I did this on my Ram just by jumping the parking light relay and fog lamp relay, There was a good how to that I followed and it went of without a hitch. I have search and search with nothing really to assuring.

I found other ones for the older focus but not the newer ones.

Need some please and thank you, If with you help me get the fogs to say on I will post pics of the HIDs.

the fog light mod you have found on older foci is to allow them to turn on with the parking lights and not just with the headlights. I'm sure it can be done, but I would have to see the wiring to see how to keep the fogs on with the highbeams.

But thats how it works on my Dodge, You bridge the Parking light relay and the Fog lamp relay with a jumper wire. That way the fogs come on with the parking lights and stay on with the highbeams? But yes, the ones I found seemed to be for that reason only. Through my searching I find many different options. Nothing like if you search for the fog light jumper mod Dodge ram you find an exact how to. I'll keep looking.

I'm not here for your opinions on how I should install the hids. I really don't care what you say. I've been running hids in my cars/truck non projector for years. The focus compared to my Ram has a nice cut off line even with no projectors. Did I mention the fact I aimed them down a little, just for that reason.

Also I live around ricer central.... Orlando. No one gets pulled over for something stupid like this.

Well your FF team has left a bad taste in my mouth, I don't need someone else hijacking my thread over a possibly simple question. Last time that happened the good thing I had going for me and fellow FF members went down the toilet. I'm and Hid guru on another site and I constantly get people saying that kinda crap that the other guy said. It gets annoying after awhile. I didn't expect to get that said to me on a thread talking about trying to jump the fog lights. Agree with you aswell, never heard nor seen anyone pulled over for that reason not even in the small town I live in nor anywhere else I lived in.
