    Lightbulb LED fog lights questions for the performance and premium ATS owners

    Hey guys,
    I got a luxury ATS, and I want to upgrade the OEM LED fog lights.
    Here are some questions I need to know.
    1) If you use your remote start to warm the car, how that fog lights look like? Will they turn on? or they just turn off.?
    2)Do you have a individual switcher to control the fog light? or they just come with the headlights.?
    3) How is the brightness compare the day time and the night time? Will the fog light reduce the brightness in the night time?


    Thanks you all

    to date, there is no effective way to upgrade the luxury model to the OEM fog lights on the upper trims.

    u ordered them from GM? thats pretty expensive. well either way, the luxury doesnt have the appropriate harnesses or setup. so all u can do is splice them and hope they work. the HIDs wont work as designed for sure since they are active and move around in the headlight. luxury doesnt have that feature.

    Those are not "fog lights", just additional LED trim lights. They come on at high voltage as DRL's and switch to low voltage when the main headlights are on. Yes they do come on with remote start FWIW. They're just there to look pretty IMO LOL.

    So there is not a switcher to turn it on or off, right?

    Correct, no dedicated switch.

    If you switch it to auto, will those lower LED Running lights automatically turn on in the day time?
    I know for sure that those LED lights will turn on in the night time, but I am wondering will them come on in the day time if you do not manually turn them on. I mean, in the auto mode.
    Thank you
