Well, if I tied into the power wire of my radio to the power wire that goes to the switch, wouldn't that make the switch "turn off" after the delay or door opening? In other words, I'd still be able to control whether I want the rings or the main lights with that one swtich, but power to the switch would cut off with the radio, which in turn would cut off power to whatever the switch was turned to (rings or main lights).

Ok..hold up. Do not hook the whole harness to your radio. That is too much power draw.

We thought you were talking only the outer rings.

I cut the black wires and spliced to the black of my existing fog light wiring at the fog light. White when to the other wire at the fog light connector (aka power) and the yellow is the ring around the light. I put that yellow to my parking lights.

If you are going to use the whole system then you'd need to use an additional relay and power source.

The relay would allow the power from your source to switch on and off with retained power from the radio.

So the way you have it set up, the main lights are controlled by the stock fog switch, and the rings are turned on when the parking lights are on but the fogs are off. Right? So in other words, you didn't even need to install another switch?

to make it simple......

use the existing wiring that you already have for your fog lights and use that for your driving lights

find a 12v constant or switched power and install the rings to that...add a switch and done OR

attach the rings to the parking lights
