    So I installed some fog lights on my car but now when i'm at idle with them on my car seems like it is going to die....If i turn them off it idles fine....is there any way to adjust the idle? should i wire them up differently? right now they are wired directly to the battery....I was thinking of using a fuse tap but didnt have one on hand? would that help...would the ECU be able to "see" the extra current draw and make up for it? no other accessories cause this just the fogs.

    somethings not right if fog lights cause that problem. i've never had any dimming/idling difference with fog lights. should be
    battery+ -> 15amp fuse -> fog light -> switch -> ground.

    As Trax said and I only connect direct to the battery when camping on 12 volt or charging .............. Some chics just don't get sport while camping :lol
