Has anyone on this list changed the foglights to come on with the parking lights? If so could you post the info so others can share?

ive done it. open hood the fuse box, look on the right of the fuse box at the RELAYS. bank of relays CLOSEST TO YOU. i think there is 3. remove R13. when removed, you will see the prong pattern is like this
see the openings on the bottom, closest to you? these are the ones you will connect using a piece of wire, about 2" long. i just used some 12 gauge speaker wire, and i crimped a speaker spade on each end. now slide each end into a hole. bingo, your done. once done correctly, you can use your fogs anytime. even with high beams on if ya want.
if i made any mistakes ( i dont think i did ), you can go to myfordfocus.com and find the how-to on this if you want. you just have make sure you yank out the right relay and you shouldnt have any problems with the wiring. when i first did this mod, i pulled out the wrong relay, i pulled out a darker one that is on he bank of relays ABOVE the white ones. remember, its the relays closest to YOU. the one u want is R13.

Thanks. You gotta love free mods. :D This took me about 10 minutes and is exactly what I wanted. They even stay on with the High beams, which is good in the country when you want to see the deer (eyes).

I purchased a fuse from ebay. It was 30 bucks. it replaced the stock fuse with this new fuse. It works very well. Not a single problem. I've had it for a 1 1/2 now. It was first on my ZX3. I took it off when i traded the car for the SVTF. I have not seen it since. On ebay.

Actually I got one from radioshack, 2-3 bucks. It's not the plug that i took out so maybe that why it's only a few bucks.
If you do the other mod, you are hanging in the breaze systemwise, cause there's no breaker on the cuicut if there's a short.
I had taken out my fogs a few weeks ago cause they had water in them (I live in LA it rains 3-5 a year out here)
Either way it's a definate up on the cool factor, not to mention added functionality.

Actually, if you take the relay out there is still curcuit protection that is in the fuse box...the fuse that feeds the power to the relay is still there....Shane

Thanks SManning1 !
Nice to know there's a back up!
A since you're a ford tech I can say that although I read it on the internet, this ones for real!:kiss:

And if you still want to put a fuse in it...go to NAPA and get an inline fuse holder and splice some ends onto it....

Does anyone have a part# or such for a replacement relay that works in this application? I'm about to go do the wire method, but I'm all for using a replacement unit, even at a few bucks' expense. Thanks, and take care...

Hey, that did the trick. Works like a charm. Thanks for the heads-up, y'all...
