Default Low beam removal on parking lights

Hey I was wondering if anyone knows how to remove the low beams (H7's) from the parking lights. I want to install some lights where my fog lights would be located and run them to my parking lights, but I don't want the low beams on. Any suggestions on this, I really don't want to go out a buy a service manual if someone knows how to do it!

remove the DRL clip. then only your parking lights will be on when you flip to the parking light function.

your lights should come with a long enough wire to run to the parking light wires. get some flow through connectors where you just bite into the power without cutting any factory wires. Unless you want to bite into the factory ground i would ground it to the car body somewhere close to the light. this is of course if you want them to come on every time you turn on your lights. if not run them through a toggle switch.

yea im doing DIY lights. I'm gonna hook up these lights to the parking lights but I'm not sure where the harness/module is that controls the parking lights. I just don't want to guess and splice and cut wires and they end up blinking with the turn signals! Don't want that!

look behind your headlight assembly and see if there are 3 wires connected to the corner markers.

if there are only 2, then there is a module that cuts the power to make em flash.

on my mirage, there were 3 wires. one would ground the other to prevent the electricity to go to ground via through the bulb.

if there are only 2, then i'd wire a switch and fuse to the fogs and you can have them on or off whenever you want.

My thoughts exactly. i would bite into the park lights at the light connection and probably back to a toggle switch to be able to control them as a part of the park lights. or you could just run a hot feed from the battery to a toggle switch to control them independently all together.

yea I think that's what I'm gonna do. I'll just hook them up independently and use a toggle switch. I really just want to hook them up to the parking lights so I don't have to worry about another switch, but I also don't want to screw anything up. I'm thinking a great spot for the toggle switch is right by the dash light dimmer. Does anyone know how to remove that little panel so I can drill holes and make connections?
