Wire tail lights to fog lights? The tail lights are already wired to the fog lights. When you turn the lights on, the tail lights come on. You press another button to turn the fog lights on, but the tail lights are already on.

Rear Facing Fog Lights are not tail lights. They are rarely used in the USA, and I may be incorrect on this point but I believe they are actually illegal in many parts of the USA. And, yes, the wattage of a fog light is different than a tail light.
