My 06 came with the foglight mod already done, so if yours is 06 you will not have to do anything. But if its an 05, I belive bosch makes a part now that can be used for that.

so, we have:

2x foglights always on
1x foglights work with parking lights
1x foglights work without headlights (w/parking lights?)


and now my foglights don't work at all for some reason. checked the fuse and still can't find a freakin relay to check

I have a 2005, and the fog lights only come on with the headlights. They will not come on with just the running lights (yet the switch will move in an out as if you were turning them on and off)...which seems really odd to me. I want to do the fog light mod, but I have never tried it.

I work at a Ford dealership, maybe I'll see if I can get some wiring diagrams for the DRL system and fog lamp system. Possibly someone smart on here will be able to come up with one for us oddities...

They changed a few things very early on in the 06 model year production. The suspension and the location of the PS reservoir is different than 05/early 06. Perhaps they changed the fog lights at the same time...would definitely explain the discrepancy.

So the understanding is that the 2006+ Foci come with the foglight mod done from the factory while the 2005 does not. And there is no clear way to do the fog light mod on the 2005 because no one has figured it out yet or they are not posting their findings? Either way I would like to be able to do the fog light mod on my 2005.

Good luck to those who endeavor to solve the 2005 owners problems.

kinda.

it looks like they changed stuff throughout '05 - '06 (according to mastadon) but i haven't really noticed a clear divider of what got which what (wtf?)

and it seems that no one has found a way to mod the (new/weird/halfass/?) style setup but
05_black_zx5 says he may be able to get his hands on a wiring diagram and i'm sure with all the skilled folks here at FF, someone will be able to do it.

as soon as i see a diagram, i'll be trying to figure it out on mine.


btw... i got my fogs to work. god i felt like an idiot when i hit the SWITCH.
i could've sworn i'd turned them on by just turning on the headlights before... anyway, they work with park lights and with the dims.

I have an 06 ST with power steering on the firewall and I can cruise with just fogs and parking lights.

someone should probably add a little note to the "HOW TO" for this mod stating that it doesn't work on '05/'06 model year focus(es?).

I have the wiring diagrams for the 2005 DRL system, and Fog Lamp system. Depending on if your vehicle is early model, or late model production, I had them both printed.

I'll scan them and post them as soon as I get home.
