you need to run a hard wire from your battery to the location of the fogs. Run that to a switch inside the car. Just like you would if you were installing, say undercars, only minus the transformers.

floydianslip6's idea will work, but there is a better way, you can rewire them, check out www.celicahobby.com and check their mod's page, they have a great write up on how to do it for the 5th gen, i did it on my 5th gen gts, now i have a 7th gen gts and i want to do it, i just don't know which relay it is, i can find out which relay is for the fogs, does anyone know? i haven't looked yet, i need to get around to it, but you need to bypass the relay and hardwire it to accessory power (when the ignition is on)or constant but then you can leave them on by accident. if i do it i will make a write up on it..

^^^ maybe it's a mistake, but I noticed that you can't give any links to other "black ball" websites. Maybe some discretional editing. Who knows. Wasn't this just posted anyways. Where's the re-post police.

ohhhh you mean like with the switch on the steering column? Hmm...well, yes all you'd have to do would be to rewire the relay. Which really wouldn't be hard once you knew which one it was. However, off the top of my head, I don't know which one it is.
