Tried this a few weeks ago. Nothing. Can anyone verify foglight relay location on 05 Wagon? Is it still third relay from the bottom? I thought 05-07 were the same so i don't know what i did wrong. Will try again soon.

I would have to say that if your fuse box has cables tapped into the fuse holder like in the pictures above, you shouldn't be giving out electrical advice.

I see a T tap and lots of speghetti.

You want to find the relay? Use your finger and put it on the relay you think it is, turn the fog light switch on and off with the headlights on until you find it. Once you think you've found it, pull out the relay and the fog lights will stop working.

I have this problem in my 02 as well, but I haven't done the mod yet so obviously they don't work with high beams. I was hoping that by doing this it would get rid of the whole high beam/low beam issue.

It's a good idea if you want to blind people or go driving in dark areas WITHOUT fog. In most states, you can only have 4 main lamps illuminated while driving on a public road. High beams and fog are a definate no-no.

Ive heard that all you gotta do is pop open your relay and solder a wire across from one prong to another (not exactly sure which ones) and then it will do the same thing and allow your fogs to run independently from your light.

well if you guys followed the instructions as described, then you should NOT have any problems, I did it on 3 subies the exact same way as JoeSUBARU did it, and fogs work all times with low and high beams on... or just the fogs. The only thing is the little fog light indicator goes on and off once in a while... the instructions really indicated that could happen!

I don't know if anyone has had inspection trouble but I took my jeep in once and failed PA safety inspection because it's illegal for fogs to be on while the high beams are here. Just a heads up for any potential modders. (I did it any way, but inserted a switch as well as the fuse so i can flip it back to legal status when the rex goes in )

Good thing to keep in mind, Im sure being catless and a lot of other things will help fail inspection also....unless you have a hookup
