How to get all front lights ON at the same time?

In 2019 SF, Is there a way to have all
Front lights ON at the same time? I mean the DRL, High beam, low beam, and fog lights. I think I can get the last three on at the same light but the drl turns off. Thanks

I've never seen a car that can--from the factory--have the high beams and the fogs on at the same time. I believe it's against US regulations to have more than 2 sets of beams on simultaneously.

And you can't have DRLs (DAYTIME running lights) on at night, so they are designed to automatically switch off when you switch the headlamps on.

Thankfully, laws prohibit such such rude and dangerous practices, although some scofflaws find ways around doing it. By the way, when you turn on your high beams the fog lamps turn off. Laws, ya know.

Thank you all. By the way my question was more of curiosity and in situations where one would need maximum lighting.

It's quite easy to get the fogs to come on independently of whatever other lights are on. All you need to do is take the steering column shroud off. There should be two connectors for the light stalk. One has a loop of wire on it. Almost all these wires are black and grounding circuits. Take the looped wire and cut it in the middle. Then tape up the one where it is two wires and use the single wire and ground it under the dash. Any metal screw should work.

Doing so should let the fogs come on any time the key is in run.

Personally I have converted my fogs to HIDs, adjust them up as high as they go and use them for driving lights.

You can't stand backwards on stairs......

Most certainly am. IMHO people who drive around with their fogs on whenever the low beams are on are also scofflaws though. As i think that is also unlawful in some states. I consider mine 'driving' lights.

My state says no more than two pair of white to yellow lights from the front for headlights. My Gen Coupe has low and high beam bulbs so at times I am running with the fogs on too. But they are 55w HIDs. 55w HIDs for hi beams, 35w HID lo beams.

And to really be a scofflaw the fogs will light up the road as better than the lo beams. So when I'm making a 'run' I can use them to see where I'm going but have no other marker lights. Need to set up a toggle for the brake lights too.......

Now that brings up the past. As teenagers we used to do that so that when we were running from the cops, we could do some hard braking and turn off the road when we got around a bend and not light up the trees to give it away.

One day an unmarked police car came into the shop for service and we got to checking out all the extra toggle switches on it. They would turn off individual lamps to look different for when you spotted them in your rear view mirror and wondered if it was a cop behind you. Tricky buggers...
