I am running the fogs at standard voltage, powered by the same relay (29) they use in stock configuration. There is a pin that grounds to activate the low-beam DRLs, I am just using that pin to activate the fogs instead.

I'll try to post it up this weekend.

I beleive I got it.Are you taking a jumper wire and running it from a pin on relay 29 to a pin on relay 30 just to ground it and thats all and if so which pin connector on each relay are you using?Also did you run the wire in the fusebox where the relays are ,or are you removing fusebox and runing the wire under the fusebox where all the wires are coming lnto fuseblox?Thanks,Craig

I e-mailed the HID company back and they told me to install a 20 amp fuse where the 15 amp fuse is for the DRL lights and that would take care of it and it would not burn up my wire harness and I did this for a week now and the DRL lights work fine during the day and have not burned up my 20 amp fuse.I noticed there is a 10 amp fuse for each headlight bulb for the low beams and a 10 amp fuse for each of the high beam bulbs and they worked fine so it must need 10 amps for each bulb on each side of the car and the reduced voltage for the DRLs only needed the 15 amp fuse for both bulbs on each side and the HIDs need 20 amps to run both bulbs or 10 amps for each bulb.Anyways they work fine now
