Has anyone had any troubles doing this? I just went out and did it - and although the mod worked, my wipers are constantly on (just to be clear - this is only when the stalk is turned all the way (2-clicks), as in turning on the headlights. It does not do it when turned just to running lights (1-click))! lol Luckily I connected with male/female connectors for easy switch-back...The purple/white is fuse 18 - RT HD LMP LO BEAM and the pink/green striped is fuse 19 Fog Lmp Front...I don't know why my wipers are being involved?? They are ran on fuse 2...and fuse 17 LT HD LAMP LO BEAM does not
have any connections coming out of it - this is normal, right?
Possibly a bad ground? But I don't see why that would be...if they are grounded perfectly fine when the wires are as they should be - but not when they are swapped?
P.S. The MFS was just replaced not even a year ago as the original one started acting funny (fog lights would shut off when the turn signal was engaged, etc.). The new one works perfectly as it should. Also, remember - when the male/female connectors are not swapped, everything works as it should (running lights 1-click, headlights 2-clicks, fog lights engage when switch is pulled out, wipers only engage when "asked" to lol...). It is only when I switch the fog and headlight wires do I get this problem...
It turned out to be the ground was loose next to the right-hand headlamp! My mechanic must not have screwed it down tight enough (as it was partially unscrewed, actually) after doing my TB/WP/Thermo job just the other day - I hadn't driven at night until this morning so I never realized the problem beforehand. I was so worried I seriously screwed up my MFS or even worse the fuse panel/wiring harness by doing this mod! Thank goodness it wasn't. I'm going to go back out and re-do this mod now that I know it wasn't the cause of the possessiveness
Thanks yellowpatrol, great results bro!
