how do i...

wire my fog lights so they can be turned on when i just have my park lights on, i wanna do this but dont know how and on the back of the button for the lights there is 4 wires and when i turn my lights on, one wire gets power when i turn my park lights on so that doesnt make sense to me cause if the switch gets power when the park lights are on shouldnt the fog lights come on? and i tested the other wires and no other ones get power when i turn my head lights on

Ok let me get this straight. Please clarify if im wrong. Ok so you have you fog lights wired up and they only work when your headlights are on and you would like them to work when only your parking lights are on? Correct?

That's the way my '03 is Stock; on with the Parking Lights and on with Lows but off with the highs.

Isn't there a How-To on it or is it on with the highs ?

Check out the How-To Forum and see if there is something there you can use.

this mentions 95-97's.
If you have a friend that knows wiring maybe he can help you out.

Read the whole post for '97 Rangers.

You could always just wire in a switch that can be switched independantly of the headlight switch.
