    I have a 88 escort gt that I would like to be able to turn my fog lights on by themselves without the headlights being on. I could install a after market toggle switch but I really don’t want to do that. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks as always.

    Hi, has any ever done this on an escort? I’m thinking you can possibly run a jumper between the pins on a the fog light relay but I’m not sure. Thanks.

    Do they only come on with fog lamp switch when your headlights are on?

    If so you need to located the fog lamp relay and find the trigger wire (which is most likely the low beam power) and change that to a keyed source so you can then turn on the fog lamp switch anytime with key on.

    I don't have a wiring diagram for your car so I am just going off prior knowledge of similar set ups.

    Thanks. I'm thinking that that's what I'm going to have to do. Does anyone know where the fog lamp relay on this car is located? Thanks.

    I spliced a/m fog lamps into the parking lamp wires on my 89 LX; having the corners and fogs come on together. The headlamps are not bright enough for night driving so I didnt mind the fogs being on all the time.
    zzyzzx and 88 escort GT like this.
