    Hey guys, I know little to nothing about wiring or much about headlights at all.

    2006 Tundra DC with OEM head lights and fog lights.

    I had to make the switch to LED headlights with a slim ballast as the OEM bulbs seemed too dull for me. Once I replaced the OEM bulbs, the fog lights did not work. I switched it back to the oem bulb and the one particular side fog light did work... I'm assuming the ballast on the new LED headlight has something to do with the fog light not working properly. Also, when I toggle my high beams and when I toggle my fog lights, the high beams come on.

    Has anyone else had this issue? Not sure how to fix this at all... I've been itching to get my LEDs firing on all cylinders! :help:

    Never found out how to resolve this... just went back to oem bulbs and went with led fogs.

    Not sure where but I ran across the info but it was on this site. I too will be converting the headlights to a "brighter" bulb soon. The online site is...."Xenon HIDS .com. They offer wiring kits and harnesses that "bypass" the original wiring on the truck and goes straight to the battery. I would prefer that, no splice and dice into the original wiring.

    I got mine from xenonhids .com. as far as I know the site just sells HID and LED bulbs though. Not sure if that's what you're looking for.

    That's the exact reason I went to LED, that way I wouldn't have to splice and dice something else to the battery. I've heard of people having good results with their HID kits though.
