looks neat. thanks for the advice! should try it too

Thanks for the link and write up.

If I am seeing your setup right...you relocated the relay and then ran wires to it from the relay socket. Then ran a single wire from the fog relay itself to the DRL harness.

Right??

I didn't do anything with any DRL harness. Did you see the diagram?

IIRC it goes to the wire that normally powers the stalk fog switch when the headlights get turned on. That way it has constant power from the fuse tap even when the headlights are off or the high beam are on. It is what makes the fogs independent of the other lights and the stalk switch work at all times.

And that overrides the DRL function of the other light?

DRL and fog light circuits are 2 separate circuits. I disabled the stock DRL circuit by unplugging the DRL resistor.
