I chose to go with only a low beam H4, and turn my fogs into high's like Violin did.

Okay so today I installed my hid kit and unplugged the relay switch like mentioned.... however it is also some how is connected to the fogs... so when I wanna use my full headlight system with fogs on too it will not work... in short dissableling the relay will cause your fogs not to work.

Is this true or is my case somthing speacial? BTW my fogs came with the car not aftermarket.

Thanks in advance for your answers guys.

In theory, using "under-the-bumper" lights with high beams is illegal. I say "in theory" becasue very few cops even realise it until you tell them to look it up. Rally-style "on-top-of-the-bumper" spots are the legal high-beam auxiliaries. Theory (again) is that since high beams are worse for fog vision, then there is no reason to turn on the fogs with high beam. Above the bumper lights are MUCH more useful for high-beam driving anyway, since their height gives a better view ahead (less affected by small bumps in the road)

I can't get the darn plug off the relay. I cant get the relay out of the bracket that is pop riveted to the car.

I'm gonna break something if I keep pulling.

WTF

It took me about 10 minutes of uncomfortable contorsions and a few scraped knuckles to pop the plug off the relay. It can be done... just wiggle it and be patient!

Take the box off the bracket before you try to unplug it.. it seems impossible at first, but it just slides off which gives you some room to unplug the connector.

The clip on the plug.... Do you squeeze it toward the connector to release or do you pry it away?

I can't see it. I was working on my kids motorcycle and I was trying to un-do a wire connector.. Turns out I had to pull the clip away from the plug. By looking at it, I would have bet a years salary you had to squeeze the clip.

The box relay thing slides to the left, then it should come off the bracket. once its off I dont think there is a clip, its just on there real hard.

He's talking about the clip between the plug and the connector. And ya, its a squeeze, not a pull. So you have to squeeze it, and try to wiggle it and pull back at the same time. Not super easy... but I did it, and I have big hands.

Once its off the first time, its quite a bit easier after that. But you can also try to get the relay off the chassis there... it's just slid in real tight.

I will post how to on here next week as i have to wait to get to the shop again... umm but my Toyota guy said he is goin to run another relay on it or somthing so that I can control everything no prob just as if it was stock but during the day time no drl. So just sit back and relax till next week...lol


On a side note... if your are using a single h4 bulp no high beam.. you can just put it to high beam during the day and you will have no lights on.. and at night just put it back to full lights on... of coarse that is with the relay plugged in.

got an idea..

ok so putting it to high beam would that keep ur fogs on at the same time... i actually have a better idea!

id say this should work.. cut the headlight wire then cut the fog lights wire and transverse them so ur running ur headlight on fogs which means ur fogs will be on at day time ...and when headlight is turned on it will activate ur fogs which is ur hid and still have fog lights on as well.. ur just losing ur high beam..I think CHRIS will agree on me with this one.. than again he doesnt have fors

Did this mod today, thanks for the simple write up Chris! But I have to say, it took me about 6 min total to do mine, I vote for false advertising! hehe
