I see a lot of Chevy's that use the fogs as DRLs in my area.You just take the stock connector off of the back of the lights, wrap it in tape, and wire your own circuit straight to the exposed terminal on the lights. Fuse, switch, relay, a bit of wire, and some crimp connectors, and you're there.
Equipment violation? Because it's probably illegal to drive like this. There are legally enforceable safety standards pertaining to lights.
That's very interesting - on my '05 XT there is a separate panel switch for the fog lamps, so they can be operated independently of the headlights, as long as the main light switch on the stalk is in the parking lamp position. So I can have fog lights only, or fog lights plus low beam, or fog lights plus high beam.I believe what you are asking is running the fog lamps with the switch in the "parking lamp" position correct? (because stock, you have to have the headlamps on to get the fogs on)

If this is the case, it's the exact setup that I'm currently running, and I love it. I pretty much keep my fogs on with my parking lamp switch always on so that I'm essentially using my fogs and DRL's.
First, I killed the DRL's by disconnecting the DRL box underneath the dash on the passenger side..
Second, I used Peaty's writeup for modifying the fog wiring to allow me to use the fogs independently from the headlamps......
And the end result is me being able to run my fogs independently......
I followed the wiring diagram and discovered the DRL resistor.What do the Daytime Running Lights relay and module do?
I dont even have DRLs (or maybe they just dont work)
If I unplug the module nothing happens.
If I unplug the relay, The low beams dont work at all
...but then I can run my fogs with just the parking lights.
I know it is the correct relay, by color and pin layout.
