'02 Sport Trac Fog Lights

On my 02 Sport Trac

Like almost all cars. My fog lights go Off when I turn on my High Beams...

Frankly.. I dont like that.

I live in the Upper Pennisula of Michigan and spend more time on back roads than anything. I want them on all the time.. If Im on the pavment and want them off.. I have a switch for that.. I dont need my High Low beams to decide when they are on..

That being said.. HELP... Anyone know how I can accoplish this?

Re: '02 Sport Trac Fog Lights

Rather than the fog lights, which aren't very bright and are aimed quite low (for driving in the fog.... duh!), you'd be better off adding a good set of halogen driving lights and tying them into your high beams with the use of a single-pole relay.

Take the relay coil power from one of the wires that feed the high beam on a headlight, and take the contact power directly from the battery.

Re: '02 Sport Trac Fog Lights

Yep I could not agree more.

I am adding a pair of Hella Black Magic Driving Lights to the Brush Guard this weekend.

Your right that will greatly enhance the long beams and allow me to see much farther and clearer.

But that does not help light the ground directly infront of the truck to better enable seeing holes, logs, and other obstructions.
