I have been trying to figure this out for a while.

My buddy has a 2010 2500 Cumming with an H&S Black Maxx Tune on it. Within the tuner her can turn on a option to allow his fogs lights to work with the high beams. On the H&S website it says

"Fog Lights W/High: Enable / Disable the fog lights staying on when high beams are being used."


I called H&S and of course they don’t have anything that can make a hemi do this. But since they figured out a way to make it work, I know it can be done. Anyone have any other suggestions on a company that could get into the ECU and turn this feature on for us?

They may turn it on, but it is illegal to have more than 4 lights on at one time. Which makes me think trucks with the dual lamps (1 bulb) may be able to do this. Us guys with the quad lamps can't.

No cars from the factory allow the fogs with the high beams....not sure why that is....


The dealer can choose the option to do this with the Starscan but probably will not do it for you.

You could feasibly re-wire your foglights to come on whenever you wanted but that's kind of a PITA just for that.

I know that law in TX for sure! I was pulled over once for having my lights on behind the grill at night. The officer told me I was allowed to only have 4 lights on at once, all the while waving four fingers in my face! It was fun.

Some company do have a wire harness that will let you do this but when I seen that they cost $250+ I just bypass them.

No picture....hmmm.....don't think so.

All it is, is a custom made wiring harness with a relay attached. I bought this exact same thing for my 2004 ram.. totally forgot about removing it when i sold it, but it was very simple to install. would be cheaper to make yourself, but was still worth every penny of $25.

Again, i had it on an 04... not sure if it would even work on the 09 & up. im waiting for a guinea pig..

I thought a bully dog could do it? Or is that the seat belt?

I ordered one. If it don't work they'll be getting it back. It's "guaranteed" to work according to their promise.

Does this allow you to turn the fogs on and off still with the high beams on? On my 04, I wired my fogs so they came on with the high beams. It was nice to have the extra lighting, by I had no way of turning the fogs off when the high beams are on. I imagine this is all the kit above is doing...

According to their website, with this thing I ordered, they had a module that included a switch so you could control when the fogs are on/off. It was like an extra $8; I opted out of that.

It sounds like all they are doing is using a relay to trigger the fogs from the high beams. I can do this for about $4...
