So any ideas on how to do this for a 2009 Foci? I have HIDs in the headlamps and fog lamps. I dont want the fog lamps to shut off when I use the high beams then have to turn back on right away which sometimes they wont. Any help or ideas, the fuse box in the picture looks similar to mine???

I submitted this on another focus forum but I want to spread the word on what I found. If this has been discussed before - my bad.

Sorry that I am waking up an old thread but I felt the need to help out some others:

I had read most of the posts about the Fog Light Modification, however, none of them worked for me. I have a 2004 SVTf with EAP (and HIDS). Opposite to the typical Focus Fog Light Modification, I had to "CLOSE" the relay circuit, not keep it open. I have no idea on which connectors in the fuse box to jump but eventually I just took some #24 speaker wire (with the plastic cover on) and jammed it in between the relay contact back and those two small teats on the relay to keep the circuit closed on the relay. Any type of non-conductive material would probably have worked. I guess that I could have used some type of "conductive" material between the relay points to provide the same effect instead of jamming the points together but for the moment it works. You just need to keep the contacts closed.

FWIW, the fog lights are on even when your high beams are on. Some states frown on this. Caveat Emptor.

I hope this makes sense.

Hampton

PS: Don't mistake the fuel pump relay (#7) for the fog light relay (#13) like I did. This is experience talking.
PPS: Oh, the ignition has to be full on not just half on for radio and etc.

Thought I'd would share. I installed the hid low halogen high kits on the focus and have zero issues. Plugged right in and have no flickering or issues with the high and low function. I bought my kit from hid extra .com

For 06-07 with factory fogs. To permit fog lamp illumination with high beams. The simplest method is to short relay C1050 - posts 87 and 87A. but be warned. High beam and fog lamps are supplied by the same fuse (F1.23). So you could end up blowing the fuse at inconvenient moments. Personally, I would not recommend it.

Did your fogs turn on before the mod?
