Wire Fogs to stay on

Has anyone wired their fog lights to stay on when the high beams are turned on? I did this on my old Maxima but can't find a write up for it on the Armada.

I'd like to know how to make them stay on with only the parking lights on. Maybe the same fix?

I remember somebody here on the forum had a modification, but I think it resulted in the fogs always being on (even if the lights were turned off).

I did it to stay on with the parking lights, All you have to do is splice into the wire leading to the bulb in the parking lights, on the side of the head light assembly. I ran a new positive and new negative from there to the foglight. I cut the foglight wire (oem) and just hooked up the new wires that I ran. Make sure you ziptie the wire some where so its not loose and hanging.

gsharma, nice work! I will dig up some wire and splices from the garage and tackle this. Not too hard. Do you recall the wire colors/tracers?

I just did the jumper mod. It is very easy but it eliminates the foglight switch on the stalk. so they come on with the running lights and the high beams.

Here is the jumper mod I found that details how to have your fog lights turn on and stay on when your parking lights are on:
