I don't get it either. Is it just to feel cool? If so, that's OK with me since other people's fogs don't bother me, but is there a practical reason for this?brnjugfx45 said:This is just a question and not a critism...Why do folks have their fogs on in perfectly clear night driving...I have observed this since the advent of factory fogs.I have always run higher power bulbs and wiring,on the FX started with 6oook and went to 8000K and love them and never use fogs and almost never use highs!
After my last back surgery and I could not drive for 4 weeks ,my brother and son would both use the fogs with the lows..just cause we do! Any better clarity on this out there?
I have to disagree on both counts. Fog lights are not intended to be used alone in foggy conditions with no headlights (at least not ones found as OEM equipement on today's cars). If that were the case, they'd be wired that way to begin with. They put extra light low where you need it in fog and if glare from the headlights even on low beam is a problem, we have the added benefit of being able to adjust our headlights down quite a bit. As for dark country roads, fog lights won't do squat; that's what driving lights are for. They are intended to throw light further straight down the road than your headlights.magician said:The reason for the fogs to work independently from the lights is to have light low under the fog. When the light is high it reflects and makes it hard to see the road.. Also the fogs help when your on dark country roads when light is limited.
Where is the schematic for the parking light circuit? I want to jumper the two fog lights over to the parking lights. I plan on using the parking light power to switch the fog lights.gtxjoe said:Let us know if you get anywhere
Here is the schematic...
