I was trying to rewire the fog lights so they would run whenever there was power to the parking lights (ie. parking only, low beams, and high beams). I spliced into the parking light power source on the back of the fuse box and terminated the other end into the power source on the fog light relay.

Sometime during this process, I lost all power to my parking lights. I've checked the fuses, rewired everything back to normal, and still I get no power to the parking lights. This includes turning them on with the switch on top of the steering column and arming my alarm.

Do the parking lights have a relay that I'm not seeing? Could i have blown something else? I'm totally lost here....

I actually saw that on there, but it looks like he's doing it on a GC8- does this mod actually work on both old and new models of Impreza?

how would i go about doing this if i want to be able to control my fogs with the fog button, but have them work whenever, even if no parking/ low beams are on?

Mine are set up so when I switch from low beams to high beams the low beams stay on and if I switch the fogs on the low beams and high beams stay on as well. I changed the stock fogs for some Hellas and changed my high beam bulbs and low beams to higher end units. It was done at the shop I go to and took about 20 minutes.

That is what I want, well put. I was under the impression that the stock wiring couldn't take the load? But I haven't really looked at it. That's alot of light, even before an upgrade in bulbs. Maybe I'll take a before/after pic if it's not been done.

If you are talking about this one, yes, it works on our cars. WRX'es are under "New Age"
Can someone confirm if it works on 04/05s as well as bugeyes?

Whenever used to haul down from the mountains after skiing, there is this unlit area on I-70 where it curves sharply and made me skeered until I did the mod on my '02.

You just need to get power to the fog light switch when the ignition key is in the "on" position. I think that this should work and I might try it myself:

Instead of splicing a new lead off of the orange wire (switched power by the parking light switch) on the pack of the fuse panel, splice the new lead to an ignition-switched wire on the back of the fuse panel. Then connect the new lead to the red-green wire to the fog light switch.
