How to leave fog lights on with High Beam??

Does anyone know how to modify the lighting so I can have my fog lights on with the high beams?
I know this is not DOT compliant but I want to have my cake and eat it too.

Thank you for the reply. I checked and my 2007 ZX3 does not have the relays in the picture. That part of the fuse box is empty. Soo empty it is not even there. There is a big open area in the area of the photo in the example.

Hi Wooley,

06-07 Foci do not have the R13 relay. The procedure would be different and is not recommended because the headlights and fog lights are on the same fuse. You can try it though, you just might blow a lot of fuses!

Per that same post above, the best way is to short relay C1050 - posts 87 and 87A. I don't have a wiring diagram handy or I'd point you to where they are located.

Thank you
This site is soo cool.
I have learned so much about my car from this site.
I have much to offer when it comes to lighting. I work for Philips Automotive Lighting and we have some very cool products I am installing on my car. Very high output LED's and high output halogen bulbs.
I plan on taking pictures of what I did to my trunk area with LED T-10's. I now can see in it.

Why would you want your fog lights on with High Beams? Using High Beams in foggy situations causes light to be reflected back at you cutting down your vision!

I for one, am not as much concerned about fog as I am with having TONS of light in front of me. Perfect for speeding down winding dirt roads at night!
