Work? Yes, should you? No. I would say it's too much current through the factory wiring, and the potential for frying an expensive TIPM would not be worth it to me...or at least frying that circuit.

Use the supplied relay/harness with the new lights and have the stock wiring trigger the relay on either the 85/86 terminal and the other to ground. Takes the load of the lights off the stock wiring, and keeps the same switch function.

Actualy NO! The OEM fogs are 42 watt. Some people get away with the 55 watt upgrade. But most do not. The computer thinks tha there is a fault and shuts the system down.
