Temp gauge w/ aftermarket OEM fogs

Has anybody attempted to install the Temperature Gauge on an Accord that had OEM fog lights installed AFTER MARKET? I noticed there is a statement “temp gauge can not be installed if fog lights have been installed after market” on H&A. I looked at the installation manual and I’m confused as to why because it doesn’t look like it would interfere whith wiring. Any thoughts? Or has someone done this with no issues?

OK,

I just compared the FOG LIGHT installation guide and the TEMP GAUGE guide and it does look like it uses the same pin connectors near the relay box and under the dash.

SO......, what if you just splice into the connectors, piggy-backing onto the fog light harness'. Any issues with overloading?

As I understand it...

If you have the temp unit stock it uses it's own harness thus leaving the one for OEM fogs. If you don't have it then you can only use that harness for one or the other. Seems lame but that's what I've heard...
