2013 SE- Fog lights as DRL

First new here and thanks for all the great info.
I just added fogs (replaced the switch and added factory wiring- BCM is equipped with fuse) but have not been able to change as built to activate.
I was hoping someone has the as built data to activate but also make the fogs work as DRL. I am going to download forscan to achieve this (I hope)
Thanks in advance

Iím not sure why youíd want those fog lights on all the time? Thereís an LED DRL kit for the 2012-2014 Focus that Iíve seen some cars have where the LEDs fit inside the bottom section of the corner grills. It looks nice however I have no idea what the cost would be for the kit.

Cool thing about the fogs, there isn't a memory for them, they only come on when you turn them on, next time you get in they will be off, forscan and focccus can give you drl but I don't think you can use the fogs as drl without modding

Well I was able to get the fogs on using forscan. But I still can't find a process to use them as drl so I have ordered the lower bumper inserts with the led's and will turn off the factory drl using forscan and maybe even get a pair of yellow bulbs for the fogs..
Thanks

Man, I wish I knew you were doing this. I've got the DRL's on my '13 SE. I removed them when I traded the car in. I'd take $50 shipped for them. Probably would have saved you some money.
