Fog lights with high beams

So I used to own an '03 Chevy Avalanche. I found a thread on an Avalanche page where it showed how to place electrical leads in the fuse box that would allow for the fog lights to stay on when the high beams were on. I know there is a way to do it because when you just flash the beams the fogs stay on.

Any ideas?

Will probably have more luck in the JK forum. The only foglights YJ's have on them are owner installed so it would just depend on how the owner has the wired.

What is the point of having high beams and fog lights on at the same time? High beams point higher up than low beams, allowing the light to be projected farther, this also causes fog to be harder to see though since the light is aimed higher. Fog lights have a very low cut off and very wide pattern and only project light 10 or so feet in front of the vehicle, this is so they do not reflect off of the fog and make it hard to see though.

High beams are detrimental to use in fog and fog lights are of no use at any speed requiring high beams.

Hi Chuck and welcome. Looks like you have a TJ. Slightly different forum. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/ Check out the search function at the top the page. There are several threads on which relay you need to mod to make it happen. Lots of wranglers already have the fog light wiring.

The YJ did have factory installed fog lamps, depending on year-round or rectangular; the swich shown is for fog lamp, rear defroster, rear wiper/washer;
