FuhFuh Focus Reviving this thread.

I have done the stock fog upgrade on my car. My car has the wiring underneath. So I got the fog housings, grill, that relay posted earlier, new bulbs, and the headlight switch and my fogs still won't turn on.

Anyone have an idea as to whats wrong?

I'm just not going to take any chances anymore and I bought a relay and did the job the right way.
that would be a bad connection that causes that.. and yeah I find the best way is the proper way

No I can only have them on with my headlights.

So i pulled that out and tried to figure out where to buy the relay to run my fogs. Now with the relay i can't have my fogs on independently or with the high beams but i don't have to worry about any wiring catching on fire

Feral LOL heheh Flaming Focus now thats one hot ride... heheh just kidding

as for the light mod.. I've seen waaaaaaaaay to many foglight harness/headlight harness fry cuz someone modded them, tapped them or rigged them.. I could make the harness but theres no way I'm going to take any responsibility into them due to possible installation error or faults down the road so I don't bother with them

depends on if they read them were going to have people object to what I just said.. yes there are some that have successfully done it but who knows if it didn't cause there alternator to spontaneously explode, fuses to pop randomly, wires to turn into goo or in the future something else..

after seeing this on my OWN Focus, I would NEVER in my LIFE depend on tapping a stock run.. who knows ?!?!?!?!?

I've already had 1 major close call, 1 minor close call and one fat FIX-IT ticket
1 major - Wires shorted popped the hatch and we didn't hear it.. the door stayed closed enough that the dash warning stayed off.. we accelerated and one of the 4 rims I was transporting pushed hard enuf against the door it opened the hatch and fell out into the middle of the intersection

1 minor- third light failed and wiper started to intermittently run when it was not turned
on

1 fat FIX-IT - it blew out the fuses that controlled my turn signals and brake lights resulting in a complete rear light blackout.. we drive who knows how far with no parking brake or signals, yet the fronts operated fine
