Fog light wiring

Im trying to wire in aftermarket fog lights to work off a factory switch. Does anyone have a diagram that says which wires are which off the factory plug so I know which wires to use from the harness?

Thanks in advanced.

i wired mine into the side day lamps just tap into the wire that turns them on when you flip the daylights switch on and not the turn signal wire put it back together. Use the wire right off of the back of the day light. I did this and it works great!!!!!

I just wired mine into the side running lights. Works great for me. They're on when the parking/running lights are on, whether I'm using high or low beams. I used a wire tap into the brown wire on my '02. Kills any thoughts of the blinker mod, but eh, I like it.

Well im running 4 100W KC daylighters. I have an explorer bezel I took the defrost button off and put a fog switch in so I want to wire it up to work seperate then fogs. I'll be running 2 diffrent series so 2 lights per relay then running 2 wires from relays to the fog light switch so there not to much power.
