Anyone require their factory fog lights using the OEM switch so they can be turned on or off without having their headlights on?

Pull out the switch and look for a brown/orange stripe wire. Cut the wire and ground the switch side of the wire. This will bypass the multifunction switch and allow direct control of the fogs.

I cut the Orange/Brown wire. Grounded the wire leading to the switch. Wrapped the other end with electric tape and magic independant fog lights.

I have a 2008 3.3 AWD

If the fog light switch is "on", this allows the fog lights to be on anytime the key is on? Is that correct?

Or does this mod bypass the switch completely and the fogs are on anytime the key is on?

Thanks,
Ken

I just performed this Fog light Mod on my 2011 Santa Fe SE. using the scotchlok connector I tapped on the brown/orange wire to ground. i did not have to cut the wire..the fog lights work when the key is on and work independently using any combination of the parking or headlights.

I believe all the details are here. Its been a year since I did it. One of my pic's as well is in the thread with the cut. Can be done in the winter on a sunny day unless you have a garage it don't matter Not hard just pay attention to what you have to do.

Note I changed my bulbs to Nokya 893's Super bright yellow which make a huge difference to them. Out with the 881's

Thanks for the thread link, especially the video. It's much simpler than I thought: Cut the brn/orn wire from the switch and ground it so the ground won't be dependent on a circuit through another controlling relay. Since I have background in such things (several avionics specialties in the Air Force and Air National Guard, as well as way over twenty years as a building controls specialist), it makes perfect sense. Now I have to make an educated guess about whether this mod will do any damage to the used car warranty I got when I bought the car last month. Details, details.

About bulbs: I replaced the stock 881's with SilverStar 880ST's. The connector retainers are different but the pins and shells will mate. Us geezers like things lit up.
