I know there are mods to make the brake lights on the trunk act as turn signals but is there a mod to make driving / running lights flash with front turn signals. I'm not sure of the legality of this - I do have yellow light covers installed.

First thought says they might be too low to be noticed at close range(under 100 feet).

Also the bulbs used in the lamps might not take a lot of cycling like the blinkers do.

I can't speak on legality or bulb life or a plug'n play set up. But it should pretty easy to do. Just run each fog light bulb's power through the 'normally closed' side of a relay and use the blinker circuit to activate the relay...

First, I am not a mechanic. So ask a qualified guy the question.

I think turn signal bulbs are dual filament.
Additionally the last time I checked turn signal voltage with a muti-meter on my truck I thought
the voltage was in the 1 ish volt range for the blinker and not the 12 ish. for a full time light.

Again ask a qualified guy. I only throw out my .02c because I think it might be a little more complicated than running the fog lights power through a relay.

I will add to my prior post, I like this idea.
