Fog Light Problems

Hey guys I have a problem with my fog lights, they came stock on the truck. I recently upgraded headlights to Halo/HIDs. The lights will not work now. My indicator on the switch comes on sometimes, sometimes I need to play with it to get it to stay lit. I have trouble shot to the extent that i could and now I'm stuck. The wiring diagram said that there is a fog light relay; wheres this located? Or could my switch possibly be the problem >.< Thanks guys.

The fog light relay is part of the Central Junction Box aka fuse panel that is inside the truck and is not a user-serviceable part. Sounds like to me if you have to play with the switch to get them to light up, that would be the first thing to check.

I see a fuse labeled for fog lights, but no relay. Do you know which relay the foggiest run through?

My understanding is that it is part of the fuse box so your not going to see it directly.

Yes my owners manual has the fuse names and locations.

So if it is a part of the box how would someone replace it?

I guess the point is you would have to replace the whole fuse box. Like I said I would start at the switch level.

Would it be reasonable to just skip the relay? The way I see it is the relay was only placed in there to shut them off when hi beams come on.... With the fog light mod it gets rid of that.... So should I be okay with just cutting the wire from the switch and the wire to the actual fog lights and splicing them together?

The switch is good because my lights in my bumper are run off the wire out of the switch but before the relay for the fogs.

I would do the fog light mod; fixes your issue and does a good mod at the same time.

I vaguely remember a post on here over a year ago where another ORG member was having a similar issue. Turned out that he needed to add an extra wire because of his new HID lights. Not saying this is the cure, just saying maybe do a check on past post. I really have a hard time believing that everything worked fine up to the HID install and now its a switch or fuse box issue.
