Fog Light Mod=ABS Light On

OK, I was bored one afternoon so I decided to do the fog light mod. A little searching, 10 minutes in the garage and BINGO-worked great. One problem-after 3 minutes on the road, the ABS light came on. And stayed on. Three days and it never went off. So, checked the fuses; both OK. So, I re-installed the relays, undoing the mod, and almost instantly the ABS light goes out. WTF! Can anyone help me out as to why this happened? Thanks, Ian.

So, I re-installed the relays,
There's only one relay involved...
You removed more than that???

As you can see, it calls for the removal of #'s 12 and 13 relays. I am going to try the normal foglight mod and see if I have any trouble.

Yeah, you should have only removed the one relay.

Well I re-tried the mod again, no ABS light for over two months. Weird.

Yup, I did the mod that makes your fogs the Daytime lights and works perfectly :)
My wife likes the look of her focus even more now. This was my first mod on her car... Next, ... vent LED's ;)

I will be posting pics of them
