you can try to get your dealer to use starscan to set your lights to export mode. but they will likely tell you to get lost because it is illegal.

+1. If you know someone or have a buddy that works at a dealer it can be done through the starscan tool. As said above most dealers won't do it because its illegal. Not sure about other states but here in NY you're only allowed 4 forward facing lights to be on at one time.

Re: headlight/hibeam,foglight combo
just add a sep switch for the fogs. i like fogs ONLY so added a switch. then i can also have ALL ON if needed,

OR it is a starscan option but its against the law in most states to have more than 4 lamps on at once on a road. so you better be friends with a tech to get him to turn them on.

Re: headlight/hibeam,foglight combo
Rob how did you go about adding a separate switch? Does the switch on the stalk still work?

high and low will operate together. you just cant have the fogs on with them without starscan or adding a switch

Re: headlight/hibeam,foglight combo
i left all the original wiring in place so I can go back.

i added a relay harness from xenon depot. and ionstead of using the oem fog to turn on the relay i added a switch. you can even buy harnesses other places that come with the switch.

Crestwood1001 01-14-2012 05:14 PM

So you added the hid fogs and instead of tapping the oem switch u used an aftermarket one? Perfect

Re: headlight/hibeam,foglight combo
yup. easy peasy. you can even get small stick on push button switch so when it needs removed its simple. and then all the stock wiring is there for when its time to go back to stock :thumbsup:
