fog lights

is there any way to have the fog lights and parking lights on at the same time without having to turn on the head lights?

I can't say there isn't, but I don't know of a way. If you REALLY wanted to be able to do that, you could probably rewire the lights. I think I've heard of people doing this.

no no no....absolutely do not do that....you will melt the wiring harness for sure. 20v.org gives you a step by step way where it can be done properly. Or 12v.org.

the easiest way would be to buy any fog light wiring kit (without lights of couse) from a parts store. they are cheap and a good one will come with a relay and everything you need. if you want to use the stock fog light switch just cut the stock wires at the switch. you probably just want them to function when the key is in the "run" position right? expose the ignition wires on the steering column, turn the key to run and use a test light to find one that's hot and run the power wire from the battery (with inline fuse) to that wire then to the fog light switch. run the wires from the switch to the lights and cut the old wires to the fog lights off and splice the new ones in and run a new ground wire.

i have my fog lights wired this way so i can switch them one whenever i want and because i had some corroded wires so i re-wired the entire circuit.

some cars have their fog lights wired so when you switch on the high beams the fog lights turn off so this way eliminates that as well.

i have the factory repair manual for the 88-92 80/90 and coupe quattros so let me know if you need any wiring diagrams..

fog lights

Fog lights are the lights mounted on the front of a car or truck which help visibility in foggy or misty conditions. They come in a variety of colors and intensities, but virtually all vehicles have them, and their assistance can be crucial to navigating poor weather.

Traditionally fog lights are yellow, and the reason why is the subject of some speculation. A common claim is that they need to be a single color light rather than white light, to minimize dispersion as the light hits the water vapor and scatters in different directions. It is often said that though red might be a more ideal color, it already has connotations to drivers —- it is used for both stop lights and brake lights. Yellow, then, would seem to be the next-most-suitable choice, because it has the next longest wavelength of visible light.

Thanks
