Ok this works the same way as powering the DRL with the right parking lights. But I am powering the fogs off of the left parking light fuse. I am also using the diode and the same wire as mentioned above.
SEE ABOVE ABOUT THE DIODE AND THE WAY THE POWER FLOWS TROUGH IT.
The power will flow to the fogs from the left parking light fuse. But the diode will keep the fogs from powering the parking lights.
The wire needs to land on the right side of fuse 27 and the right side of fuse 25. This protects the wire in the fuse box and keeps everything fused and protected. SEE THE PICTURE.
Again I have replaced all of my incandescent bulbs to led which draw around 25% less than the factory bulbs and if you do the same this will work for you.
DO NOT RUN THE FOGS THIS WAY IF YOU ARE NOT RUNNING LEDS IN THE FOGS AND THE SAME FOR THE DRLS.
If you are running HIDS then you will need to install isolation relays to handle the load. With LEDs you don't need the relays. This works perfectly.
So now when I unlock my doors everything turns on. Park, fog, DRL, HIDS.
If I remote start, the park, fog, DRLs will be on. No HIDs.
No need to hit the fog button at all now. They come on when the parking lights turn on. The DRLs still will come on when it's sunny outside and no other lights will be on except the DRLs when it's sunny. If it gets dark, everything turns on automatically. Should of had this from the factory IMO.
And the intellibeams work perfectly and it is crazy bright at night with the fogs, DRLs, and the HIDs high beams.
Great job, Eric! I love that look. Quick question, do you have stock headlights or did you replace them with 6ks? Everything looks very white in your picture. I know you have the VLed 6k bulbs everywhere else up front. Color match is perfect from what I can tell.
They are stock. The color match is very close. As you can see in my pics. Its hard to tell there is any difference between the d1s and the leds.
As you know the Hids change color with time. I think everybody's are a little different shades. Slightly.
These came from superbrightleds.com They are the parking light bulbs. These are brighter than the ones I originaly got from VLEDs.

These are for the DRLs I did have to tap the wires on the harness to power these. The connectors came with the lights. also you need to contact them and give them the info of what your truck is and they have to modify the bulbs so you can put the screw on cover back on the back of the headlight assembly. See the note of the escalade mod on the list below. All you have to do is go to their website and drop the tech support people a email and they will get back to you.

I wired my truck the same way as your last fuse box pic. The DRL comes on with parking and Hid, when I hit the unlock button. My fog lights don't come on. I still have to turn the fog lights on manually. Are there supposed to be "3" wires with diodes, or just "2" wires like picture above?? I want fogs to automatically turn on with all the lights.
