On older rangers when you have the parking lights on alone the fog lights did not come on. Unlike newer models. As for they year they changed it i am not sure(but i know some one else certainly does) but it a really easy mod to do.

It's on here somewhere. I'm the "originator" of the method used, which just involves bending a pin on a relay. I don't remember if it works on 1998 though.

I'm working on another foglight mod where you remove them and replace them with 50 watt CO2 lasers. A new way to "cut through traffic"...

Wow. A lot more complicated on the older Rangers. Geez. On 2001 to 2003 you just have to remove a relay, bend a pin, and put it back, lol.

Although slightly different, 99 and 2000 also use a version of the bent pin mod like 2001 ~2003. The one you posted is basically correct for 95~98 although the color code for the added wire is not the same for every year.

there are 3 types of fog light mods: 1. the fog lights on with high beams mod.
2. the fog lights turn on with parking lights mod.
3. the replace your stock 9145's for 9005's mod.
