Hi everybody,
I recently purchased a 2003 Ford Escape XLS.
I was wondering how I can make it so as my fog light switch is independant of the low beam headlights.
My fog lights only turn on when the headlights are on, and I would like to bypass this circuit.
Any ideas?

i can run a brand new relay, but thats just annoying, so im hoping there is a quick fix to this.

Thanks

You just need to pop out the switch, cut red/black. Now go over to the blue/red wire. Strip back insulation, an run the end off the red/black going TO the switch into the stripped part of the blue/red wire. Tape this connection, and
tape off the red/black going away from switch. Just keep illumination up 3/4 to full and your fog lights will come on with parking lights.
Wire colors may vary, thats just what it was with my '01

Works like a charm :yes:

I'd also be interested in swapping the low beam DRL to the fog lights. Might help some of the short lived aftermarket bulbs last a little longer.
