Default Fog lights on with parking lights

Greetings!

I've searched & searched until I'm blue in the fingers but I can't seem to find the link that I'm looking for [or am I a moron & just am trying to do something that can't be done ]

My fog lights have never worked since I got the car a little over a year ago: cracked lenses, etc....I plan on getting a set of the Cyberwhite Navigators & would like to wire them up not only so that they stay on with the high beams [I found that link no problem, thank you very much ], but so that they come on with my parking lights...I just can't find the info on how to wire them up to come on with my parking lights ...
Can anyone help me out?!!!

Thanx!

They will automatically work with the parking lights. The switch above your head with map lights contains the fog light switch.

On the cyberwhite navigators..pm me. I am taking a set off to put on Angel Eyes I just ordered and will give you a deal on basically a brand new set.

yup just make sure that fog light switch is on....also be sure that your fuses are good because of the broken lenses and such...you can find the fuse on the passenger side fuse block above the passenger foot well

BillBoost: My Bad, I should have said installing the set I already have...that'* what I get when I start posting at 11:45 ....Thanks for the offer though!

But let me make sure I understand fully: when I install these & use the stock wiring, then the fogs will come on [as long as I have the overhead switch on/no fuses are blown/I wired them correctly/etc.] when I turn on only my parking lights?

I want to be able to drive around with just the fogs/parking lights on.

yes they will turn on :
when the parking lights are on, and the fog light switch is on
OR
when the headlights are on, and the fig light switch is on

there is a oragne LED in the switch that should be light up when the switch is on

Yup...like 1993 said.

And the nice thing is on your year the car doesn't automatically turn on the headlights at night when you don't want them.

Cool, so [because right now, even though my fogs don't work, the orange LED does light up] I can assume that as soon as I get these puppies in, I'll be able to cruise around with just the Navigators & parking lights on, right?..

If you turn off your twilight sentinel, yes. And enjoy the ticket. It'* illegal to drive with parks and fogs at night. It can also be dangerous.
