you see where the A is on the first drawing on the first page? you need to disconnect that from wherever it goes and hook it to 12v from the key, on the third diagram say elec ign fuse. and if its not already the orange wire from the fog switch to the bcm needs to be grounded. if you wire it up this way the fog lamp fuse and relay will provide the "power" as they did before and the "control" is minimal current draw and wont blow any fuses either. and this will allow your fogs to be used independent of the headlights

TK2cse and Eltatertoto,
If I understand this correctly I tap the 12v+ feed wire of the power drop, run a wire to the 12v+ feed wire of my fog light relay harness. Seems simple enough to me, but this mod has been a good ball buster but I probably deserve that. And YES, currently that *orange* wire that goes from Fog Switch to BCM is still permanently grounded.

Firebird,
I do see A on the first drawing page, this was one of the two *pink* wires we spoke about that is fed to the fog lamp relay which is accessed from under the under-hood fuse box.

From our previous conversations this was one of two *pink* wire* 12v+ feed I was trying to tap into when blowing low beam fuse from using low beam 12v+ feed, never did completely disconnect the pink wire labeled A in the diagrams.

From your last post I understand I need to completely disconnect this *pink* wire 12v+ feed and connect to electric ignition fuse 12v+ feed. Again i'm assuming I would be powering the fog lamp relay in the fuse box with the 12v+ feed rather than where the pink wire comes from.

more controlling than powering technically but yes completely disconnect the pink and hook it to one of those fuses that are key powered only like the one labeled "elec ign"
