I know this is a repost but I wanted to put my spin on it...
First of all, HUGE props to "FatAuto" for figuring this out. For reference >>> FatAuto's AW Link (http://forums.audiworld.com/s4b6/msgs/333541.phtml)

Here's how I did it and I've just include lotso pics for people who like pics [:)]

1. Identify wires (Position #1 & #2) on the light switch harness

2. Cut Wire #2. Allow for ample wire for step #3 & #4 below.

3. Strip Wire #2.

4. Crimp on Male Wire Tab Connector to #2 Wire.

5. Use these style wire tap for a fool-proof tap. The best wire taps money can buy, IMHO.

6. Crimp on Wire Tap onto Wire #1. Crimp far enough downstream to allow for the ease of Step #7 below.
FYI, I barely left enough room for mine, but for you guys, go further downstream (See Step #7).

7. Connect up Male Wire Tab to Wire Tap & Tape raw end of Wire #2.

8. Done, in 5 minutes time. Fogs w/CityLights Mod...
Whooot !!!!

DOES anybody know if this will still allow the fog lights to power on when you Unlock/Lock the car with the remote???

Hi,

Can you please explain what exactly it is that this mod does ?? Does it allow you to switch on your fogs, even if your park lights are not switched on ?? Or does this mod permanently switch on your fogs as daylight driving lights ??

I did this on my B7 (2005.5) and it works, however when my lights are set to "auto", the green light behind the "auto" text flickers. Is this a simple loose or poorly connected wire problem or something else?

Did you have to VAG your car to RDW before splitting/jumping the wire, like FatAuto did?

I know I'm reviving a thread that's over 3 years old [o_o], but I'm not the most electrically inclined person. I read the below from Eddie Man, but it doesn't mention anything about having to VAGCOM, in order to getting the fogs to work separately....the post from Fat Auto does. Do you guys know if I can get the fogs to work separately, WITHOUT Vagcom'ing it?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Looks like its a mod for US cars only, I assume ROW has this as a standard feature?
