do you have a link for the relay you used

I purchased mine from a company called GenLabs, standard auto off drl relay
Sadly they have gone out of business, but any drl auto off relay will do,
See link: http://www.ebay.co.u...=item20cc4b477c

Cut feed leading to fog light,
Connect feed input to relay,
Attach ends feeding to fog bulb as drl outputs,
Splice sensor feed to reverse positive,

Job done,
When the relay feels power in the sensor feed it stops power flowing through itself,

No prob,
Any future questions feel free to ask,
I've also done a guide on fitting an auto dimmer relay to aftermarket gauges

Yeah its more than sufficient mate,
The amps flowing through the cable wont increase by using bigger cable,
It will be just the same,
