    I did this on a mp3 and mazdaspeed protege this weekend. It was exactly the same. I figure all 3rd gen proteges are the same.

    Has anyone tried listening to the fog lamp relay to see if when the high beam are hit, the realy triggers???

    If so, it may be triggered in that relay (power from the high beam triggers the relay open, cutting power to the fogs).

    It is one of the best low buck modifications.

    It didn't cost me anything, I had all the parts in my garage already.

    I am still wondering how to get all 6 lights to stay on though.
    But for the time being I am happy with this mod.

    Thanks again for spelling it out for us.

    Drive with pride ... the Protege 5. (the new MAZDA 3 is ugly)

    i second that, does anyone know how to do so? the extra bit of canadian bacon is the daytime running lamps, if anyone knows how to kill them, we'd have ourselves a hero.

    I guess if you wanted to get into the wiring you could get a switch and interupt the elelctricity that goes into the DRL's.

    Toggle off = DRLs off
    Toggle on = DRLs on.

    Another fog light swich from a wrecked protege5 would fit nicely next to the original swich and get rid of that useless "coin holder".

    Just a redneck suggestion since there hasn't been one yet.

    thanks red, apreciate the effort. only problem is, i haven't been able to figure out which wires are for the DRL's. doesn't seem to be anyone here with the shop manual for the cdn spec.

    yeah FlyPinoY7! There's so many of us doing this mod, pretty soon people in Cali will think P5s come stock like ours.

    To answer an earlier question: Yes, the P5 and 3rd gen sedan are exactly the same. About 5 of us did it at once during a Hwy 9 meet, and one guy had a 2002 ES. His wiring was identical to ours.

    Where's all the the Canadian Wiring gurus? Throw these guys a bone, will ya?

    Canada cant get no love. I would love to do this mod but am cursed with the drl's. one way of terminating the DRL's is to ground your e brake cabel perminantly at the handle, but then you have to deal with the brake light being on. If anyone can figure out a way around this. please post.
