    If you must, just pull out the light switch to turn on the fog lights.

    Go to an audio shop. They can wire your fog lights to turn on with ignition for less than $50.

    Capability is already there. Ask the dealer to activate them. Mine did it for free.

    As Seldom Seen mentioned, the capability is likely already there as it is on the 5th generation Explorers. All that was required on the Explorer was for the dealer to hook up their IDS laptop and select the proper setting.
    BTW, the members on the Explorer forum are finding and setting up/activating all kinds of options using Forscan. Quite a few have eliminated that dreaded "double Honk" you get when closing the door when you get out with the engine running.

    That will solve one issue. You will then likely also have to turn off the Day/Night setting on the MLT display and perhaps adjust the dash lighting. It also will turn on your rear lights which isn't a bad thing.
