Default Fog lights wiring

Ok I got fog lights for my v6, I got one of the wiring kits and decided to wake up and install the wiring. Got it all hooked up, flipped the high beams on all the lights turned on, then flipped in the lows and the fogs shut off as well as the passenger headlight, I spliced into the high and low circuit as the instructions said and that's what I get, I do have the oem gt fog/head switch as well. Any help is appreciated.

Did your wiring kit come with a relay? If your not using a relay, that's your problem.
Can you post your wiring diagram?

Yes it came with a relay, I attached a copy of the diagram I followed. I might just switch it to the parking light and be done with it.

You only need 1 trigger and no diodes. Here's the way most people wire them.

Did you get the harness from that one ebay seller? That's where I got mine and no complaints. Spliced it into the parking light circuit as well
