I need help... I am looking for a power source that cuts off when the high beams come on, so that I can wire aftermarket fog lights to it. It is a requirement to pass state inspection to have the fog lights turn off when you turn on your high beams and if you could give me the color and location that would be great! I have the factory fogs, and I will be using this power lead into a relay. Thanks in advance!!

When I mounted my Hella on my Stubby, I used one of the Factory Fog hot wires(under bumper) to my Relay #87 pin, then when I use my factory light switch & switch high beam they turn off.

You only have 2 wires at the fogs,, black & I think yellow/blue, it's easy, not the Black, it's the ground. That's the one that goes to #85 that will trigger yours lights from your factory light switch. Just run the rest like the diragram. Good luck

If the factory harness does not supply enough power to power the lights then wire in a relay. It will use the signal from the fog light switch but run a seperate wire to power the lights themselves. Should be able to pick up a relay at any autoparts store. 20A should be enough. Don't forget about the inline fuse on the wire coming directly from the battery.
