This is actually possible with some tech 2 work. My car is like this now, because the dealer put it on the wrong setting when I asked them to allow the fogs to be on with just the parking lights.

Other wise you could get creative with a jumper from the high beam relay. However you will need to use Diodes to prevent back feeding the high or low beam filaments.

Having it done via tech 2 is safer.

With all that said, I'm not sure why you would want your fogs on with the High Beams.

I hardly use the fogs as is, and when I do I can't stand that they stay on with the high beams.

I have my fogs on with parking, lows and high beams.

The guy at the local Saab indy set it that way with the techII when he was programing keys for me and I love it.

I drive everywhere with my fogs on.


I also recommend having them set the trunk to "never lock" for time. It only locks when you lock the car and once you unlock/open it it will stay unlocked. I also like that.

You ought to see my customer's Saab's - I have set the fogs to stay on with the highbeams as mentioned and in addition installed hella 500's Amber at his request. The light output on his 2 Saab's crazy - and he uses them all. He has hit a few deer, and I'm not sure all the lights actually help him or not, but they do piss off on-coming cars well. lol

Tech 2 is you best way to customize your cars features and settings.

fog+parking is euro light setting, IIRC
fogs + highbeams is foglight II, I think?

jonesy did mine in the wagon a while back, and I love having it set that way.
I drive with parking lights+fogs a majority of the time.
