This worked back on my '05 Magnum and our 06 SRT 300... Just set the lighting features to "export mode" with the Dealer tool (at the time, StarScan).
I always thought that was still likely n the dealer setting somewhere but asked around on multiple forums back when we first got our 2012 Jeep and nobody had any luck finding it...
To the person who asked about WHY... IMO our "fog" lights are not all that great for fog anyway as they are a bit too white.... They should be closer to the 2700 - 3000K color.
This part is just my opinion though, some prefer "Yellow" fogs (IE 300K temp), some don't. Not sure if there is any scientific proof behind either but for FOG usage, the off white / yellow color has always worked better for me.
On our 2012 they were still a halogen bulb so that kept them in the 3200K range helping some but on the 2015 SRT they moved them even further away in the color spectrum by going with LED Fogs which match the headlights in the ~4500K arena.
As such, for me they are more of a driving light than a fog to begin with but besides that, sometimes I just want MORE light. Its VERY annoying to turn on the high beams and lose a lot of the closer to the vehicle (and side) visibility.
Where I live, animals (mainly deer) LOVE to run out in front of you or even jump into the SIDE of your vehicle. As such, often I need to look FAR in front of me (high beams) while also paying attention to the ditches and woods on the side of the road near to me...
So my reasoning is, I more often need far off visibility AND side to side visibility than the times I will be driving in fog and need only the dispersed (again, IMO in the more useful "yellow" color) FOG light.
Ultimately if it cant be done in the settings, I will resort to a manual wiring solution.
