Does anyone have a clue to what color wire goes up front for the parking lights so I can tap into that?

You turn your foglights on by pulling out on the headlight switch?

Nice job! Did you end up wiring it to the bezel switch or just a toggle?

I ended up putting in a toggle switch that has a little led in it for now on my current bezel but it looks good. I am still gonna look at the junkyard for what I want to make it look more stock. All in all, it was real easy just time consuming.

Here is the switch I put in. The other ones they had looked like crap and I wanted one that would light up when on.

Ah nice, I have 5 of these waiting to be installed somewhere



Finding the bezel with the switch in it shouldn't be hard. If its missing the switch I have an extra here with a pigtail that I'll send you for like 5 bucks.

Ok I am trying to wire up my new factory fog light switch. The problem I am running into now is that when you turn the factory switch on, it sends a negative signal out. How can I wire the relay to send a positive current to the fog light with a negative signal?

Looks like this is what I am going to have to do.

Wire 3 becomes negative when you push the button in.

Wire 6 is then ran to the positive output side of the relay. Looks like I get to run another wire.

Ok, I finally got the switch to work. The problem now is that the power is always hot so if I have the truck off the fogs can be on by just pushing the switch in. I am gonna make the 12 volt power on the relay get power from the parking lights when i turn them on. Should fix the problem. Gonna do it tomorrow though. It is 12 here and I have work at 8. I know have to run two more wires to get everything working right.
