Looking for a solution to adding fog lights to a Rav4 Hybrid (2019). I tried adding the normal way, but it turns out that the headlight system works on a 5vdc power source instead of the usual 12vdc, so the relay wouldn’t trip. I found a 5vdc relay that can handle the power load for the 12vdc fog lights I tapped the 5vdc side of the relay into the headlights so that the fogs turn off when the high beams come on (req’d by Pa state law). The problem is that the relay is drawing too much power, when the fogs come on the low beams dim down, also not allowed by law.
The way I made the connections: ground connects directly to the body of the vehicle; the positive is connected to the headlight wiring via a T-Tap.
Looking for a solution to this.
