A member of the sky forum had a GTO with simular wiring and blinked with out a relay. they use the GTO wiring guide and did the mod on the Sky and it works. I did it to my Solstice this weekend and it works great.

This is what you need to do.

Open the harness to the side marker, pull out the black wire up to the point of the harness where the fog lights split off. Cut the black wire close the split and (using the end that comes from the side marker)then apply a wire tap to the blue wire in the bundle going towards the fog lights.

I stripped back some insulation off the blue wire and soldered the black one to it. Then re-taped the harness for a nice clean look.

All fine and good, but what happens to the other end of the black wire or did I miss something?

Pics and diagram?
