fog lights with high beams

anyone know if there is a way to keep your foglights on when you switch to high beams?

You would have to hard wire them so they come on via a user controlled switch. The OEM switch simply tells(asks) the BCM to turn them on. The computer automatically turns them off once the brights are activated. Logic gates and what not...

Lima... where the men outnumber the women and the women outweigh the men.

On my cutty my fogs were grounded through the high beams. So All I had to do was cut a wire and ground it, Let my fogs be on with the HIs no problem.
I don't know how it is with the G6 and the BCM and all
But you can probably go in and put a wire in so they'll always be on with the parking lights regardless of what the switches or hi beams are doing.


But looking at this wire diagram the best thing I could think of is to put a wire from your highbeam fuse/relay to the fog light relay, So when you turn on the highs that circuit will feed the fog light on circuit therefore leaving them on.

I pulled this for a 2007 Pontiac G6 3.5l V6. I assume one G6 is the same as the rest. And this is specifically the fog light circuit.
Check out this site:

Wiring Diagrams and TSBs for the picking, Now I did notice that not all circuits are there, but a good amount are.

You can do what I did if you want your fogs to be on whenever your lows are on. Just run a small wire from the low beam fuse to the fog relay, this way the fogs turn on whenever the lows are on.

Just found a picture of it from my car, sorry its a crappy cellphone pic but its the best I have right now. The red fuse is the low beam fuse and the grey block is the foglight relay. If you just run a wire from the fuse to that pin on the relay your fogs will be on whenever your headlights are on and they will not turn off when your high beams come on.

ok makes sense because the low beams stay on when the high beams are activated. leaving the fog lights on with the high beams

Yeah if youre looking for maximum light output i definetely recommend wiring it like that. I do a lot of driving through long farm fields so its a must for me. The only drawback is that your fogs are on anytime your lows are on, but thats not really an issue for me. So if youd rather not even use the stock fog light switch this is probably the best way to do it.

I really haven't really had to do much research for this car as its my better half but i am getting ready to do some hid lighting changes to my gto and figured i might as well do her's too.

youd have to send it to chris to have your BCM reprogrammed..... but if your gonna do that he can add remote start, kill your DRL's or whatever else you want at the same time.
