Red face How to keep Fog lights from flashing with side indicator lights..

I wired my fog lights with side marker lights, so when the parking light comes one fog lights come on as well.

Funny thing is that i did not realized it till today. Both of the fog lights flashes with right turning signal light. But it does not do so with left turning signal.

could it be the wire harness? Any ideas to keep it from flashing with right turn signal?

It is a LS and i had plastic caps on them before i had them fog lights bought over the ebay. they are just the fogs not drl.
Yes they can be turned on by the switch or they will come on automatically when parking lights come on at night. But at they day time since the fog lights are off, it flashes right turn signal. They do not flash flash when they are on though.

Sounds like you wired them incorrectly. I have fogs in my LS and they only come on with the side markers. The side markers do not flash with the blinkers. Therefore the fog lights come on with the parking lights since that is the only time the side markers are illuminated. I also think it's a wiring issue because your problem only occurs with the right blinker.

I would take the bumper back off and check the wiring. You can easily tap into the appropriate side marker wiring on each side to ensure your ride isn't blinking like a pirate. Take your multi meter and check the wires, I'm sure you'll find your problem.
