the switch for the fog is somehow wired into existing electrical circuits to only allow it to be hot when low beans are switched on, but not hot when lows are off. for the bypass, you have to add additonal wiring to the relay for the fogs, allowing the switch to become hot when you switch it on allowing the relay to trigger. Turning on the relay is essentially what you are doing. if you make it permanently hot it will always be on, not exactly what you want. hope that helps clear things up.Anyone purchase the FSM yet ? Any automotive electric gurus out there ? Do I just search for the wire that becomes hot when fogs are switched on and make it permanently hot ?
You answered your own question:This may be a dumb idea, but why not just run all new wiring to an independent switch.
I don't know about you, but I don't want to cut too much into the wiring harness of a brand new car.Just Cut the existing wiring for the stock fogs
very plausable. All you need to do is buy the 9006 sockets or pick some up from the junk yard. The clip may or may not be the same, but im sure there are many ways around that. After that... it would be just like installing a set of fog lights on car that didnt have them.Just an idea to toss on the table, Independant swtich all the way to new Lamp sockets. Disconnect Factory sockets, secure them from dangling and buy new sockets and make new wiring/switch....is this fesable? I havn't looked at the assembly yet so I don't know if this could work. If it would that would leave the factory wire harness untouched.
