Default 2000 ford ranger foglight plugs

Are the two plugs hanging down at either end of my front bumper for my fog light? I have read that the power to them will turn off when driving with low beams and turn on when I turn on the high beams. Is this accurate? I don't have the proper lower bumper for fog lights. I have seen a pic in this forum of some of them mounted inside the grille frame. Is this the best spot? Also do I have to upgrade the fuse or will it handle the two extra lights? BTW as far as I know everything is stock.

The power will be on to those plugs when your low beams are on. Off with high beams.


You can use the power going to them, to trigger a relay for aftermarket foglights. That's what I did. It's super easy.
