Anyone have access to the 5th gen wiring diagram?

I would like to disable the fog lights turning off when the high beams are on function. I've done it to my 99 ranger, 02 explorer, and 04 expedition just by bending 1 tab on the foglight relay, but with all of the electronics in the new explorers, i'm afraid of shorting something out by accident. So the smart thing to do, is check the wiring diagrams out first.

My explorer is a 2014 Limited with halogen headlights and auto lights (if it matters).


Thanks
Vic

That would be illegal in some states. There is a reason they turn off when the high beams are used. Also, not really sure what they would add to the high beams.

It's not illegal in MA. The only thing you can get cited you for here is if you drive with your high beams on within the city.

I'm not looking for better lighting benefits. What I get out of it is the fog light HID ballasts not switching off and on with a quick turn around. Since it's not good for the ballasts. They stay on if I flash someone to let them go.

Not gonna be able to do it. The body control module has an internal relay that is controlled by the processor. The relay contacts are soldered to the board.
