Default fog lights

Is there a way I can run my fog lights without my headlights? Or can they only turn on when the headlights are on?

I can't remember how it works if you still have daytime running lights since I disabled mine, but I just pull the headlight **** out halfway to turn on the parking lights and flip the switch for the fogs. I also disabled my auto-on headlights too so technically it'* possible to run only fogs after dark - not that it'* a good idea.

are you talking during the day or night


if its during the day, if the DRL are disabled then you could run them with just the parking lights (assuming you are using the stock fog light circuit)

if its at night, the only way you will be to run with just the fogs and parking lights while out of park is to override the stock auto-on. there are 2 sucessful methods of doing it. both which can be found with a search

Pretty sure, that only works for '92-95. 96+ has a different system that must be altered to allow that to work.
