Steveracer mod for Chevy?

Has any done the Steve racer mod to a newer truck?
I liked having the fog lights still on when my brights are on.

thanks

it allows your fog lights to remain on when you turn your brights on. as they sit now, the fog lights go out when you hit your brights.

On trucks like mine, its easy. A couple diodes and everything comes on when the highs are on. At this time I do not think anyone has come up with a way to keep the lows and/or fogs on with the highs on the NBS trucks. I'd have to see the electrical box underhood to see if its even possible.

I remember it had something to do with grounding a yellow wire on the underside of the underhood electrical panel. I'll have to see if I can locate the info.

On 2001-02 trucks, you've got to lift the underhood electrical panel up and off its moorings. I believe there are tabs on the sides that you depress to unlock it. Twist it around and look for a large grey colored connector. Look at spot D3 on that connector. Using a Scotchloc, splice in a wire of equal size and run it to a ground point. many people use the grounding bolt on the firewall over by the hydro-boost.

Here's the instructions and pics I found:

Quote:
Pull the underhood electrical center cover off, place aside. Unbold the four bolts holding the drivers side corner brace (fender to firewall) and remove. This is to remove the cover surround on the electrical center. Gently pry the plastic snaps holding it in place. There are two between it and the fender and two large hooks toward the passenger side at the bottom. Now lift off the plastic cover for the electrical center. You will see two clips holding the electrical center close to the fender side while the two toward the passenger side are hinges. Release the two by the fender and roll the electical center towards the passenger side. The mess of wires will tug a little but it will roll over to expose the underside. Looking at the right underside you will see a grey wire block. There are small letters and numbers identifying the wires. Look for D3 and you will find a yellow wire. This is the control for the low beams. Is is switched ground on the 01-02s unlike the 03-04s. All you need to do is get a scotchlock (or solder if you prefer) and tap the yellow wire to ground. I ran it in a loom up to the ground studs on the firewall (follow your underhood light wires down if you can't find one). That's it, test it out and fold the center back down. Recover and replace the brace
Many thanks to blnagel (Ben) for the description and pics in pioneering this mod.
