    This can be done, but is a bit more tricky. You can't just put power to one spot and call it good. You would have to find the cables that go to the LEDs (I believe they are paralleled with the side marker lights), splice in a diode and tap in your power supply (which in my diy goes to the tail lamp rh fuse tap) downstream from the diode.

    I attempted to do this mod and it didn't work, also the wiring is different in 2016 so the wiring for the fog lights on the other plug are not the same, does anyone have an updated repair manual for the 2016 because obviously things have changed since 2010-2013 manual

    on the 2016 VT high beams run at 1/2 voltage as DRL and fogs can only be turned on when the low beams are on, if you switch off the lows the 1/2 voltage high beams engage and the fogs turn off, total pain in the ass, I saw on the 2010-2013 repair manual that there is a DRL relay on the IPM Connector D so I am considering disconnecting that lead and see if it disables the DRLs Name:  IPM Connector.png

    stupid question but I'm a novice when working with relays, if 85 is ground and 86 is source as in a standard relay is there a chance that the OPs diagram is reverse in my relay and that I need to reverse the wiring to match? followed instructions to the letter and didnt work, this is my relayName:  20181224_003558[611].jpg

    Edit: I should note that when I finished the wiring my tail lights did not come on nor did the leds
