First off, if this is the wrong section, feel free to move it.
Anyway, I'm thinking of adding fog lights to my 2010 LT sedan. Pretty much looking at the Hella FF75
. Since I don't have the inserts that I've read about, I would mount these underneath the bumper. Also looked at some PIAA low profile lights
, but my checkbook laughed at that idea.
Anyway, my first question, are the daytime running lamps also the low beams?
Last car I had, I just wired the fogs to the low beams(using a relay). But if the low beams are also the drl's, I don't want the fog lamps on with the DRLs.
I also considered wiring to the parking lights, so they only come on with all the lights. Any downfall to that?
I would run everything through a relay, and just use the low beams or parking lamps to kick the relay to the on position. Only other thing I considered, was using a switch, and hiding it in the little compartment under the drivers side dash. Since I'm not to big on the idea of drilling into the car too much just yet.
And last question, why would there be a fuse in the fuse block under the hood for the fogs, when I don't have the fogs?
