      In FORScan when turning the Bambi mode on it will allow me to run fog lights with high beams which I understand.

      However in Lamen's terms could you explain to me what fog light memory or high beam memory does.

      Currently when I have my lights set to auto and fog lights activated I can turn off the ignition at night and come back just a little later and my fog lights will still come one with my low beams.

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      I've never heard of those 'memory' terms. If you turn the fog lights ON, they will always come ON with the low beams until such time as you turn the fog light switch OFF. There is no memory involved.

      I have wondered how to get the fog lights to stay on when I turn on high beams as well (from what I understand that's the jist of your question). If anyone has any info on that it would be great! It's always been a little annoying that it doesn't do that...

      In the spreadsheet it has the option to use high beams and fog lights together but it also says fog light memory.

      Because of the type of switches involved, that do not physically stay in an on or off position, like the headlight switch does, or the hazard light switch, the system would require memory to know whether they're supposed to be on or off.

      FYI, it is illegal in some jurisdictions to have both high beams and fog light on at the same time. Also, I don't know if the Forscan spreadsheet linked above would work for a 1999 XLT.

      I have Bambi mode enabled and I can run my brights with fog lights staying on.
