If you drive with your fog lights on all the time like I do... wire it to the positive side of your fog lights.

what kit did you buy???
if you have the ones from jlevisw, then that red wire (switch to the relay) should be connected to the given wire in the ECU so that way they are given power when the car is on......

Just tap the positive wire to your fogs then... like I said above, if you don't mind driving with your fogs and halos. I always run this way, but I have 8000k HID fogs too.

Connected to the ecu I thought they were supposed to be on anytime you the car was unlocked, or when the engine was running. That way they would fade on when you unlocked your doors to get in. That's what I think it's supposed to do but I'll let someone who has the remote kit for it chime in.

yeah, tap it into the ECU and they'll be on whenever the car is on..
and also with the remote kit, you can tap it into your footwell lights...
that way they'll come on/off with unlocking/locking the doors.

check this DIY out..
