Ive noticed that a few people are hookig up their cornering lamps on EF/EL so that they are on permanent with parkers / headlights on.
Are they just tapping in to the headlight / park light loom(s) or is there a pin to bridge or something on the PCM to do this?

im going to attempt doing it to mine tomorrow so i'll see how it goes.

sounds dodgy to me. have you ever tried running a seperate light off the parker setup? the circuit seems to s**t itself, but id love to see how this works out. i have seen a few americian cars come from factory like this back in the 60 and 70's

cut into your parker wire, use it as a trigger for a relay and run a totally seperate circuit.

I would also be running a switch in the cabin so that you can turn them off. That way you can avoid any unwanted attention from the fuzz!

Thats how you do it. change the relay trigger wire to parkers/low beam, and connect it upto a switch inside, then, mod the cluster so it shows the fog light symbol, just for wank value.

Is there a fog lamp indicator in the cluster? Is this the case in all clusters?

the BA/BF falcons have them but all e-series i dont think have them. maybe NF/NL's might due to factory driving lights

I know EF/Ls have them. i think its in a tech doc on here. you need to run a line to the cluster and add a resistor iirc.

Aren't you able to just make up your own system?
-Wires and Fuse from you battery to the two lights, then a switch inbetween so you can turn them on and off?
(of course disconnect them from where they are connect to at the moment),...
Is this possible?
