Icon5 headlight help?

okay I have a 98 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 with a brush guard and two off road lights. The offroad lights come on when I turn the brights on, it came like that. I also have foglights but they turn off when I turn the brights on. There is a separate switch for the foglights and I was wondering if anyone knew how to change it so the foglights will work independently. The weird thing is when I pull the light stick thing back, the offroad lights, headlights, and foglights are on. However when I push it forward for it to stay on the brights, the headlights and offroad lights come on, but the foglights turn off. Help?

I make a conversion kit that uses OEM fog switches to control aftermarket lights. You'd be able to control your fog or driving lights independent of your headlight hi/lo beams.

oh and does anyone know why my blinkers on the side of the headlights (not the bars below the headlight) won't come on? something as simple as bulbs or do they serve some special purpose?

Are they not coming on at all, or do you mean they aren't working as blinkers? From the factory they are just parking/lights, but there is a how-to thread to change them over to blinkers. If they aren't coming on at all, it's probably the bulbs and the previous owner just never replaced them.
