Upgraded angel eyes...need advice .****** did not complete the job and NO DTime lights

Hey guys! I need some advice. I decided to have my angel eyes upgraded to white and fog lights. So I was referred to a local shop that does mods on cars, including car stereos. They ordered the white bulbs for high beam and fog lights.

I also wanted to see if I could have fog lights come on, when my lights come on automatically (instead of pushing button) So they ran a wire for this.
They had my car for about 6 hours, I paid for labor and all they completed was installing the angel eyes for high beam.
Daytime running lights DO NOT come on automatically now.
Fog light errors now.
Does anyone know what can be done, to have all of these issues resolved.

Well it would take a bit of re-wiring to pull off what you want. All the lights in the front (except side-markers and eyebrow marker lights) provide feedback to the lighting control module (LCM). The control module expects/detects a specific current load from each of the lights. When a light doesn't draw enough of a load (like when LEDs are substituted for filiment bulbs) it will generate an error. Additionally, when a light draws a load when the LCM thinks it is supposed to be off, it will also generate an error.

So, for example, you want your foglights to come on when your headlights come on. You would use a standard 5-bladed relay and wire the original foglight power wire to the circuit that passes through when the relay is not energized. Then wire the energized circuit to an accessory feed wire. Then run a wire from the headlight power to energize the relay, which would then disconnect the foglight from the factory circuit (so you won't get an error) and run the foglights off the accessory feed.

Did the daytime running lights come on before and now they are inop?

They must have disconnected them then. I doubt they stole the pwr source for the foglights for them since the are only fed 3 volts.
