Fog lights auto on

Is it possible to get the fog lights to auto on with the headlights? Its really annoying having to turn the fogs on everytime the headlights turn on

Lights

On several of my old cars, I have modified the wire harness to keep the fogs on and other things.

As soon as I get a hold of a wire harness diagram, I will find out a way to;
1. Keep the fog lamps on when going to high beam.
2. Find a way to wire the fog lamps into the parking lamps.

Does anyjuan know of or have the wire diagrams for the ST?
If so, let me know and maybe we can arrange for you send me a copy.

wire in a relay circuit with a fuse from the battery. just like adding a set of aftermarket fog lights. put the relay coil in line with the headlight power, battery to one poll of the relay, then the other poll to positive on the fogs.

Do you have fog every time you drive your car?

I think even with a wire mod like we used to do in the old Focus, being that our fogs are push button, you will still have to turn them on, and if you wire them directly yo head light wires they will stay on with high beams.

Usually there is a wire or two that need to be crossed or spliced that will allow the fogs to be kept on with the parking lights or the high beams.
On my last car, the fogs would not come on with the parking lights. The focus will.
Now all I need to do is keep it on with the high beams.
Also, with the fog lights on, you are more visible during the day time. Safer with them on to act as daytime running lights.
