DTRL Mod

Hi all. I know that there has been a lot of topics regarding this mod. I've searched and searched but still can no longer find the step by step instructions for this DIY mod online anymore. Can anyone out here help? Thanks a bunch.

If you're talking about changing the bulbs then just buy the correct size bulbs you want (look at the lighting sticky), open up the hood, look at the rear of the headlight aligning with your dtrls and turn that plug counter clockwise. Pull & take out the original bulb, put in yours, place the socket back in the hole, turn clockwise and you're all set..

Actually moving to Toronto so I'll be needing to have DTRL on my FX.

Has there been any downside from using the KP mod and using the foglights as a DTRL?

You are in luck! I still have the pics that I downloaded from the Imagestation gallery that had the step by step instructions.

PM me your email address and I'll send to you. Sorry, I don't know how to post pics!

This mod that you taling about has not been really documented. The Module from KP technologies in my opinion is very complicated if you are not familiar with the electrical layout of you FX and it also involves drilling a whole throug you firel wall in order to put the module mod through and connect it toyour DTRL switch...

On the other hand you can buy a BOSCH Distributor and do a hook up to provide power directly from you battery and patch in to the DTRL cable to have your FOG on with your DTRL..

Just a simple mod to add to you DTRL...

Here is what the end results look like....

Very nice... BTW, do the fogs toggle off (probably very quickly I'd assume) when you switch from DTRLs to headlights?
