Cutting the wire will still let the horn honk when the doors are locked, it simply disables all external lights from flashing via the keyless entry.

1) If you want fogs to flash
If you want to get technical and find out where that grey wire sends a pulse to, try to track it. I would assume the pulse goes to the ECM or a STDT relay. I dont know if I would worry about this method.

2) Make your own relay/pulse to flash your fogs. Fairly simple with $5.00 worth of parts. I wont write it out, but if anyone is interested let me know.

Anyways, cutting the grey wire will eliminate the heads and park lamps from flashing. Let me know if you need some pics.

I havent tested it, but I would assume so. That module is very complicated and relies on pulse thresholds for alot of the triggers. I'll let you know for sure a little later when I can test it out.

Reading and found some more useful info.

Deactivating/activating the autolock feature. When you put it in gear your doors lock.

Before following the procedure, make sure that the ignition is OFF and
all vehicle doors are closed.
You must complete steps 1-7 within 30 seconds or the procedure will
have to be repeated. If the procedure needs to be repeated, you must
wait 30 seconds.
1. Turn the ignition key to ON.
2. Press the power door unlock control three times.
3. Turn the ignition key from ON to OFF.
4. Press the power door unlock control three times.
5. Turn the ignition back to ON. The horn will chirp.
6. Press the unlock control, then press the lock control. The horn will
chirp once if autolock was deactivated or twice (one short and one long
chirp) if autolock was activated.
7. Turn the ignition to OFF. The horn will chirp once to confirm the
procedure is complete.

Autolock (if equipped)
This feature will automatically lock all the doors when:
• all the doors are closed,
• the ignition key is in the ON position,
• the gearshift lever is shifted into R reverse or a forward gear and
• the brake pedal is released.
This feature will also automatically relock all the doors when:
• the ignition is running and any door is opened then closed, and
• you put the vehicle in motion by releasing the brake pedal.

How about adding the fog light parks only mod to the list?

I love this one for coming home late and not lighting up the neighborhood
