Fogs

Hey guys havent been on here is a while. Just had had an idea to do to the G6 but wasn't sure how to do it so I figured I'd ask. How can I rig the fog lights to turn on when the head lights turn on? Will I need to set up a relay? Where are the wires for these located and what wires (color) do I need. Thanks alot I don't know much about these things I'm use to my old YJ

I am no electrician but the easiest way i think would be pull out your headlight assemble and tie into those wires. So just go from fog light wires to head light wires. So you turn on headlights the fogs turn on too.

Pontac G6 Sedan 3.5L
Exterior- 8000k HIDS lows, 8000k HIDs fog lights, 20% window tint, Tinted taillights, painted grilles (top and bottom) to match, Custom painted engine cover and battery box, Red painted calipers.
Performance- Crab Intake, Racing Line Performance strut tower brace, GT-R Custom Magnaflow exhaust.
Interior- red LED's on inside, custom painted interior trim to match outside, Memphis sub and Amp, Custom fiberglass sub enclosure.

Ok I wasn't sure if that was too much on the head light wires. I don't want a loss of power in them. Also if its not bright enough out but the headlights come on if I push the fog light button the headlights go out so something must be connected somewhere for that to happen. Will that cause a problem? Or should I disconnect the fogs from their current sorce of power and put in a. Relay thanks

I installed fogs on a buddy car just powering them from the battery and inline fuse. with a rocker switch. Works good. If the headlight splicing isnt working.

well reading around the web, I found that its possible to do. (factory fogs)
Splice into the headlight. Adjust some fuses in the engine bay.
But this will leave the problem of what if you want them off. I still would like to be able to use the switch.

I know from the factory its setup so that only 4 lights are on at anyone time.
Fogs+lows or Highs+lows.

Ive read that its illegal. to have more than 4 still i want this option.

i dont know how that can be illeagle, i have a buddy with an 09 jeep grand cherokee and stock he can have the fogs on with the brights.

all that is needed to do this 2 a six is add one relay and a few diodes. ill draw up a diagram of how to do it in a bit.

i have already done this to my 6 lol.

So ive spent a long time trying to figure this out still LOL
Ive read lots of "how to" threads in other car forums but still it not the same setup as are car. And i really would like to use the stock switch. Not a rocker.
So if anyone has any ideas it would be awesome!
I don't need basics like how to wire a switch type stuff.
Ill eventually figure it out. But am a little stuck hahaha

I know TGrill was able to set it up so his brights and fogs would be on, I think he used the pedal adjuster, don't quote me but if you can get a hold of him I'm sure he will help you with it

i wouldn't change anything on the g6 electrical system.. I know there would be some stupid effects after.. probably engine check light turns on.. or your remote starter (if you had one) stop working.. I know because I changed my interior lights to LED and because they have different watt supply, my engine check light came off (had to go to GM to get it reset).. well..

Here is a link to a wiring diagram for the headlights on the 2005 G6. Not sure if it much help, but at least you'll know what you are looking at when it comes to the electrical!

I have thought of wanting to do this as well, but sometimes I think that having highs and lows on at the same time is plenty bright enough, especially with my HID lows.
