PLEASE READ,UPDATE WITH IMPORTANT QUESTION

It didn't work.I cut the green wire with the black tracer that was in spot 13,grounded it,and no foglights???They wouldn't come on at all.I checked the fuses and relay's...all good.Un hooked it,hooked back up the way it was and they worked.Tried it again thinking somehow I screwed up and the same thing happened.I read what trucks it won't and will work on and it should work on mine.I did do the ridin durty mod where I spliced the wire out of the headlight switch to a toggle switch the other day.I messed with that trying to get it to work aswell,but nothing.Does the brite box mod not work in conjunction with the ridin durty????

I also just realized that when I turn my lights on,my lows and fogs are on but when I switch to brights my lights go out completely except for the fogs.Did I blow a fuse or a relay?Any ideas which ones to check?

Does your truck have the factory "daytime running lights"?

Yeah, there is a separate fuse for the high beams. Even if you don't have the DRL feature, check and make sure that there is not a fuse in it's location, if there is take it out. If there is and you flip your lights to bright, it will blow 2 fuses. One being the high beam and I think the other is fog.

do you know which ones to check.I don't have a manual.I know which is the fogs(#43) but thats all I found online.My fogs are good they work all the time(except for when the brights are on like normal since the bb mod didn't work)All I need to figure out is which fuse is for the brights and I'm sure that will fix it.In fact,I think I heard it blow when I was messing around with the mod........

That "bright box" or "fog light mod" will work on your truck. I'll try to find my manual and then talk you through it.

where you can run your parking lights and fogs at the same time if your truck is one of the models that won't do it from the factory.I didn't name it,one of the other forum members did.I thought it was funny aswell!! But he did it and can name it whatever he wants in my opinion!!!
