ya, thats how it came from the factory (note in some places its illegal to have fogs on with high beams... no idea why since no one else should be around you when your highs are on ) you can bend a pin in one connection under the hood but everything people have tried to explain it here i get everything except where this connector is and never have seen an answer

Yeah, thats what they are supposed to do, almost all cars do that.
Fog Lights=on with low beams/park lamps.

Driving lights= Off with low beams/park lamps, on with brights.

Not sure about other states, but here in CO there is a law stating that the fogs must turn off when the high beams are on. Because of this law most factory fogs turn off automatically when the brights are turned on.

@mattathayde: EDIT:Not going to raise conflict over this....

Herculined gas tank skid. In the process of mocking things up. I found a nut strip in the frame rail unused

I ran all new wiring for my lights. Straight off the battery, fused and switched.

Finished the head gasket, also fix my power steering leak. Learned how to catchcatfish while fishing for trout and mackrel.

Just trying to figure out why myjeep runs hotter now than before I changed the gasket.
