Default How to: Fogs with high beams??? on my GP.....

Anyone familiar with making your fog lights work with the high beams?

I found this link for 97-99 Grand Prix'* ...

On my car, the fogs are controlled by the adaptive light control module. Tricking that would be tricky.

I don't know how to do it either, but one thing you may want to consider is local laws. Most states retrict the number of projecting lights you are allowed to have on at one time. Since I live in a mtero area, I haven't had the chance to use my highbeams and see if the lows stay on too. If they do, you're looking at 6 lights on. Most states allow for no more than 4. Probably won't get you a ticket, but does have the potential of being an attention getter...

John, we're talking about getting the fogs to stay on with the highs. Not highs and lows at the same time.

Yes but it won't do too much. Fogs with high beams, wont do that much either. Aftermarket lights will be the only noticable ones with high beams, and you'll want to wire them up seperatly.

Why i did my angels seperate!

Hi Jason....
I have aftermarkets in now...I bought the Hella Optilux 2500 Angel eyes....
Nice and bright!

I wired the main bulbs to the stock wiring harness (Soldered and shrink tubed w/quick disconnects)
and ran the angels to the parking lights.....

I did not choose to wire up separately because I don't like installing
aftermarket switches so much, I think they look sloppy...as I get flamed
from all you button guys! LOL
I like the looks of factory.

I will have to look at that diagram this week...and see what i can do...
Im still waiting for my damn sub amp to show up!
Thats going in first!

Priorities!

I'd have to disagree with you Jason. I've noticed a big difference if my high and low beams are on at the same time. The riv has "flash to pass" and at night you can have low beams on, and pull that back and it'* much brighter than just having the high beams on. I would be interested in doing this to my car too. The 2000+ Bonneville'* are like this already though, the low beams are on with the high beams.

I got that too, a slight tug back on the magic wand on the left side and the brightness of the low beam jumps up..

Flash to Pass...cool name
